Meanwhile, Dr. Anna Marie Diaz, a general practitioner at Universal Hospital said that having a clinic made especially for Filipino community will allow the relationship between doctors and patients to become stronger because “the communication is better.”
“The Filipino expat community is one of the largest in the UAE, so if we provide a clinic with Filipino doctors, we are encouraging them and making them feel at home,” Khaleej Times quoted Dr. Diaz, who has been working in Abu Dhabi for three years, as saying.
