Castilla Mayor Isagani Mendoza said that the doctors’ activity was a big help to his constituents especially that most of them can ill afford the cost of major health problems and was all praise to the professionalism of the attending doctors for coming in aid to his townmates. He added that this becomes a reality because of the vision of the leadership of Governor Chiz Escudero to give what the province can as an entitlement of its inhabitant for their general welfare.
