GHO Clinic at the Health Center

11 02 2012

Earlier this week, a group of American doctors, dentists and other health care professionals from Global Health Outreach held a one-day clinic in Kampong Kdey. Nearly 350 patients flocked to the health center to receive treatment from the foreign doctors. Each patient had the option to choose between dental care, medical care or a basic eye exam. In some cases, patients got to meet with a physical therapist or a radiologist. The team was kind enough to share some of the trends they observed during the consultations, which helps give me a broader sense of the public health needs in the area.

Patients waiting for the doctors. So many people showed up, the health center ran out of chairs.

The dentists worked on more than 75 patients.

There were several tables like this set up for consultations. Each table had an American doctor and a Cambodian translator.
