Need to consult a doctor but can’t go out due to community quarantine? The Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC) has just activated its teleconsultation hotlines for its outpatient department (OPD) services.
You can call or text the following hotline numbers: Internal Medicine (0910-620-1076); Pediatrics (0910-620-0903); Surgery (0910-620-1098); Obstetrics and Gynecology (0910-620-0868). A doctor will be attending your calls/text (depending on availability) from Monday to Saturday, from 8am to 5pm.
The measure will help minimize risk of exposure for both healthcare workers as well as the public in dealing with the ongoing pandemic.
