I've done multiple medical check-ups with MMC as well as when my dad was confined for a few weeks there. Place was well kept clean, signs and staff are friendly and answers to questions well. Their services are prompt and the doctors and staff are very professional.
The main lobby will give you a feeling of being in a resort or hotel lobby. The newly open Central Park will be an extra treat, an amenity area that will give patients and visitors the feeling of being at home in their own garden. Doctors here are the best in the country. State of the art facilities and high tech medical equipment. How I wish every Filipino can experience the medical care and assistance at Thé Medical City.❤️ March 4, 2020, I went to the Ambulatory Service Center- as usual long line but patients are comfortably seated and patiently waiting. I have been on food and water fasting for my blood extraction. Not to over fast I approached the lady at the counter 4, to let her know of my situation. She was so quick in attending to my concern and never ask for anything, not even my ID or HMO. She accompanied me at the blood extraction area and everything I need was well taken cared of because of her. Thank you very much Ms. Maria Concepcion Calayan Golla for your kind assistance and compassion. Keep up the excellent work. May your tribe increase. All the best!❤️

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder where the brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual sensations, behaviors, and in some cases loss of awareness. The treatment plan for epilepsy is based on the severity of symptoms, your general health, your age, and how well you respond to therapy. The treatment options include medication, nerve stimulation, and surgery.
Your doctor will likely give you seizure medication (anti-epileptic drugs or AEDs) starting with a low dose and slowly add more, the medication works by changing the way your brain cells work and send messages to each other. In some cases, your doctor may perform a procedure called nerve stimulator to help prevent seizures. There are two types of nerve stimulator: vagus nerve stimulation (placing a small device under the skin of your chest and connecting it to the nerve) and responsive neurostimulation (implanting a small gadget under your skull bone). In some cases, surgery may also be performed, which involves removing the part of the brain that causes seizures or cutting the paths between the nerves in the brain that causes seizures.
The length of stay varies depending on which treatment you underwent. In general, you should stay in Philippines for 5 to 14 days. If your doctor gives you AEDs, he will want to see how you respond to the medication. If you undergo nerve stimulator or surgery, you will need to stay longer for initial recovery and follow-up hospital checkups where your doctor monitors your condition and healing progress.
You should rest for 3 weeks after surgery and then gradually increase your activity level. You should be able to return to work in about four to six weeks, but the total recovery period may take as long as three months.
Your doctor will give you detailed instructions about the medicine or post-operative care, which may include diet, restrictions, and exercise. You may need to work with your epilepsy team to meet the goals you set before the surgery. If you are at risk of mood changes after surgery or if you have difficulties with depression and anxiety, it is highly advisable to seek a psychiatrist help to stay emotionally healthy.
About 70% (7 out of 10) of people who have epilepsy can fully control their seizures with medication. Nerve stimulators and surgery are known to be effective and safe. However, all of the treatments carry some side effects and risks, such as infection, bleeding, a return of seizure, vision loss, memory loss, allergic reaction to anesthetic, tiredness, weight gain, rashes, clumsiness, mood changes, thinning bones, and weight loss.
Your doctor may suggest you try the ketogenic diet, which is a diet high in fats and low in carbohydrates. However, you should not try it yourself. Your doctor and nutritionist will give you advice and instructions on how to do it.
After treatment, you may become seizure-free or have better seizure control. You may notice an improvement in learning and work performance. Most people are able to achieve new milestones, such as driving, doing better at school, finding or keeping a job, trying new activities, and making new friends.
