Chinese medical specialists provide free clinics for Dominicans

Many Dominicans took advantage of the opportunity to attend speciality clinics provided through a collaborative effort of the Ministry of Health, Wellness and New Health Investment and medical experts from the People’s Republic of China provided free of charge to Dominicans from across the seven health districts.

Last week, four Chinese medical doctors provided consultations in Oncology, Urology, Ophthalmology, and Cardiology. The Chinese medical team has been on island for some time but decided to offer this service to assist with the backlog of patients awaiting appointments at the Princess Margaret Hospital.

Dr Youquiang Fang offered services in Urology, Dr Dexi Wu in Cardiology, Dr Bin Liu in Ophthalmology, and Dr Zijun Zhen in Oncology.

Director of Primary Healthcare, Dr Laura Esprit, said the ongoing construction of the Dominica-China Friendship Hospital and the transition of the medical facilities required the team to utilize alternative avenues to see patients. Dr Esprit hopes that these speciality clinics can be held on a regular basis at the primary healthcare level.

Meantime Mr Wang Quanhuo, Chief of Economic and Commercial Office at the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Dominica, noted China remains committed to assisting Dominica in all spheres including education, health and building human resource capacity.

    Have to wonder if these Chinese doctors will be subject to the same searches and humiliations endured by the doctor volunteers from the Christian ship Pacific Hope.

    Did you know children are not allowed to attend church services in China? SMH

      “Did you know children are not allowed to attend church services in China?”

      If you think that’s the worst thing about the murderous regime of Xi Jinping, I have bad news for you.

    Made in China. Year, is this one a real “Doctor”? We have not moved up in healthcare for our people one inch. Always getting the second-hands from India and China. My brother went into the PMH some years ago on his own accord for a check-up. One Indian doctor experimented a drug on my brother! And yeah, he went down hill soon after and died within a week or two. I was young and he was my eldest beloved brother. (R.I.P)

    If I knew what I know now, Hmmmnnn…somebody would have a heck of a lot to answer for. I hope this Doctor has his Medical Certificate displayed in his clinic for all to see and read.

    This is crazy. This reminds me of emergency medical care immediately following a natural disaster. From what I see, many people have conditions that require medical care and for some reason or the other, cannot access that care on a timely basis. And these same people voted back DLP in droves. Do these people examine the work of their government before they decide where to cast their votes?

      Well, it’s mostly “sick” people who voted for them to have their Chinese doctor.
