New Patient Information
Once upon the time, an immigrant had a blood pressure problem. First he tried to NOT recognize the problem for many years, then he tried to use some home-made solution, but the picture was going dark and dark. He lost productivity in the construction work, deteriorate relationship in his “family” and finally after many years of confusion, suffering and pain, he dies. <<==<<== Fast rewind <<==<<==
Once upon the time, an immigrant had a blood pressure problem. A friend insisted that he see a doctor at Mayview Community Health Center. Slowly he improved his health condition, return to school, was promoted, give flowers often for his wife and have had a lot of fun with his kids.
Just now, last month, he retired and was back to his country in a tourist trip vacation.
I believe Mayview is doing a great work for the community, great people, great results too. Happy ending to the community!
