«This doctor had to perform an emergency caesarean section and he told us that it was a delicate surgery, that he was at that time the only specialist doctor in the entire region and that fortunately everything went well,» he recalled.
To conclude, he said that the proposal for the continuation of this agreement is already on the table. Now to manage to hire 100 more specialists in comprehensive general medicine, a very particular and necessary specialty.
