“A smiling face is the mirror of
our body and can heal sick patients” – Last March I came here for check-up. I
was then referred to Dr. Espinosa so I went to his clinic. He sent me back here
for EEG. The staff downstairs at the front office did the EEG for me right away
so I had the time to go back to Dr. Espinosa who interpreted the result. It was
done so fast that we had the time to go back to Ilocos that same day. I thank
the staff very much. To Lorma as a whole, thank you so much and may God bless
you all. All the staff and employees of Lorma Hospital are very friendly. I’m
very glad to see their smiling faces every morning. Keep up your good work!!!
