Excellent!! Timing is everything and Miky Jagtiani is to be congradulated for his inovative step into the needs of the peoples health care. Having medical services in one clinic is inovative and most practical.
It is my hope that prventive care will also be part of these services. With the high diabetes statistics in U.A.E., perhaps these clinics will help and educate the good people in the care and prevention of diabetes .
Health care in U.A.E. is improving so rapidly, I am sure only excellent care and kindness will benefit the good people of the United Abrab Emerites one thousand fould. Bravo!!
