A Friendly Division For All CA Employees

by: Mary Joan B. Taņada, DMD

Hmmm …. What can I say?! Time seems to be zooming really fast. It will be my 2nd year on the first Thursday come September this year. As for now, I feel more at ease and at home in our office. The camaraderie of my co-workers is good and my rapport with my patients is okay. What I observed is that it is a blessing to be of service to people. We get to meet all kinds of people, get to know them personally, get to be invited by different divisions on special occasions and lastly, we get to receive tokens of appreciation for the treatments given to them.

The influx of patients still increases in CA Medical and Dental Clinic. Services are rendered to the CA employees even extending to the immediate members of their families. The major reason is due to our economy. CA employees are lucky enough to have benefits provided by the office. Medical and dental problems/treatments such as surgery and dentures can be reimbursed. Another reason is the daily services that employees get from the clinic such as blood pressure readings, laboratory exams, and medical and dental check-ups plus of course the free medicines that are being provided by the office. All these of course are rendered by the staff of the whole division doing their forte. We have two medical doctors, Dr. Tomas Alfredo T. Yago and Dr. Doreen V. Salcedo. Dr. Ronald C. Yñiquez and yours truly as dentists. Ms. Kathryn Kate A. Flores assists us in our dental procedures. Dr. Mary Grace G. Ordoñez is the Optometrist. We also have 5 registered nurses namely, Mrs. Perla L. Panganiban, Mabel Y. Vicente who is in charge of our CA Health and Welfare Plan along with Anna Leona C. Rivera, Charito G. Gustilo, who is assigned at CA Cebu and Mr. Alexander F. Galvez. Our nurses do their rounds in taking the blood pressure of justices. Medical laboratory tests are given by Mrs. Ma. Lucila R. Santos and Dyahann M. Ellamil. Justices who undergo physical theraphy are assisted by Mr. Audax A. Cantero, Mrs. Lanibel S. Trinidad-Rodelas dispenses the medicines and Mr. Bernie Ebrada is the one who sees to it that our clinic is in order.

The CA clinic may not be as sophisticated and as modern as The Medical City or Asian Hospital and Medical Center but it is certainly a clinic that cares.
