I need to get screened for TB. I'm living in Pasay City, Manila currently. Anyone have a suggested doctor? I'm not looking for the cheapest... need GOOD at least, but prefer better and as close by as I can get. Mall of Asia is an easy ride for me. Know anything about Far East Medical or Borough Medical Clinic. Looks like there are clinics on Mabini Street & I have been that direction also (we go to St. Lukes' Extension every day for HER treatment). I don't want to just walk in someplace I don't know anything about.
Thanks ahead for any input. TB Man
