The Addis Clinic receives referrals every day from community health workers, nurses, and physicians serving their communities across the globe.
This month we are happy to introduce you to Eli Chacha Thomas, the founder of Chang Medical Clinic. Chang Clinic opened its doors in November 2017 and is located in a rural locality of Opapo which is in Ringo, a sub-county of Migori County, Kenya.
Mr. Thomas is a clinical officer with a Diploma in Clinical Medicine and Surgery, and also holds a diploma in Medical Laboratory Technology. When asked why he opened Chang Medical Clinic, he replied, "Well, I decided to start up this facility for I saw the need the people had. Opapo is a remote place and the nearest public health facility is over 15km away. Children and mothers now have a place to run to for medical attention."
In discussing the incorporation of The Addis Clinic & asynchronous telemedicine into his patient care, Chacha says, "I can't mention enough, but The Addis Clinic telemedicine works for me perfectly. Our patients now get the services of specialized doctors without having to go to these big facilities which are expensive. I have seen my clients responding well to the treatments recommended by The Addis Clinic doctors. We also have learned a lot from the doctors as well."
The Addis Clinic is excited about our partnership with Chang Medical Clinic, and looks forward to expanding our relationship in the coming months!
