Always good to get a good doctor referral.
FYI, MSPH Care now covers med/Dr services at Hospital Mae Lewis.
Planning my hernia surgery, I got exams from 4 Drs; 3 at Hospital Chiriqui, 1 at Mae Lewis. I choose Dr Samuel Cattan Jr, who only practices at Mae Lewis, and does not float between both private hospitals. Meaning also, I choose Mae Lewis over H. Chiriqui, even tho H. Chiriqui is a much better facility; better to pick the Dr, not the building. Dr Cattan was the only 1 of 4 who thoroughly examined me, detailed my condition, and explained the surgery.
I had exams one day, had lab tests the second day, had surgery the third day, was released from hospital the forth day. Couldn’t have had faster than that! Much of that service due to the hand-holding of Dr Cattan. He personally walked me thru the 4 lab tests; he was there to greet me when I was admitted into hospital; after his surgery he visited me in my room; the next morning he post-op examined me and issue a hospital release. After 2 days convalescing, I bussed home to Bocas. A week later, I was back to my regular self. That only happened due to the care and skill of Dr Cattan. I cannot more highly recommend a surgeon.
