“We have been elected to do our part as inspectors and make demands with the people, so I am an active counsellor, I am always in the neighborhoods checking what is needed and I find out that in the neighborhood of Panorama the clinic has been without a doctor for five months. I am sure Mayor Colbert, as a physician and director of this city, Aware of this situation or not, but I’m sure he didn’t, because if he was aware, he would have already taken action. We need some action to be taken, so that people can get to the clinic, with a simple prescription,” he said in his speech .

In an interview with Acorda Cidade, she added that she had also applied for a position at Dr. Leon Lida Specialist Center, regarding the specialties there are and today the population is facing difficulties, as an vascular doctor, pulmonologist, cardiologist, orthopedist.

“These are specialties of paramount importance, especially with post-Covid now, as many people have had sequelae and really need specific medical care,” he said.
