Well, in support of the county group of doctors who provide medical care as an outreach program El Movel provided exam room platform today so the doctors could see patients after a mass blood pressure and glucose screening in the Lopez Mateos Community Centre. Getting in was a bit of a challenge as the opening required folding in the mirrors to clear the narrow opening. But we made it. You can see the entrance upon our arrival here.
And last but not least the crew of volunteer providers loading up and heading back to Ciudad Constitucion and their perspective jobs.

The phenomena we call June Gloom had little affect on our Flying Samaritans clinic in Lopez Mateos for the month of June. We saw 6 planes arrive as well as one go to Laguna San Ignacio. So the Phoenix chapter of the Arizona Flying Samaritans was kept busy. We may not have had as big of a patient turn out as some would like to see but for me it is the quality rather than the quantity. But as a requirement of our government issued permit to practice medicine we are indeed required to report the quantity. And that comes to 112 chiropractic patients seen who walked away a little easier thanks to our gentle care providers which included some neurology consults this month.Added to those our general medicine group helped 18 along with 13 paediatric and another 13 ladies seen by OBgyn. There were 11 minor procedures and 64 pharmacy actions. Our dental group saw 15 general dentistry patients and 4 dental hygiene folks. All in all 186 patients here seen by care providers and if we add pharmacy refills into the number it comes to 250 for the final count. Although our reporting requirements keep the number at 186 patients who came and were treated by some of the most generous of the heart and pocketbook angles in the world. Way to go Sams and we'll see you in July.
