Clinic Visit Part I - Western Pangasinan

It was August 24 when Dr. Virgie Petrola, Dr. Marissa Fernandez, and me (Dr. Amelyn R. Rafael) went out of our daily routine to do a much needed work for our Chapter - to go around entire Pangasinan to visit Chapter members. The whole day was devoted to Western Pangasinan. The primary purpose was to be able to invite members for our Postgraduate Course on September 21, 2017.

We started out early. Sad to say that our first encounter was not met with enthusiasm. The doctor was on a sour note. As officers, we came prepared for that.

The rest of the day was very productive. We were able to get members to register early and to pay their dues. Some doctors were very appreciative of what we were doing and we were very thankful for their understanding.

We were able to ask the help of GX, a pharmaceutical company, to be our transportation service for that day. Special thanks to Boss Archie of GX. Thank you very very much, Sir!

To Eastern Pangasinan doctors, see you on September 7!
