They call it a clinico- and there is a new one in El Fuerte. Now let me say first that I love this town and have many friends there.
One is the barber, the hotel people, the little lady we often eat wuth and her family, guys at the market and more. The plaza there is so placid…even during the Judas dancing of Holy Week.
So right behind where I am standing there, they just opened a clinic you can walk in to. It is public and you cann get standard tests there- like simple blood sugar or everything you need for a physical. You can get and eye exam and glasses. They do dialysis and other common proceedures people need. It is like a generic lab.
It is easy and it is cheap- reasonably priced. So they have commodotised simple medical needs and middle class and poor people can afford it.
So what is wrong with this? Why do these same services including eyecare cost ten times or more in the US?
Help me here.
