“Health for all regardless of race, creed, or economic status.” This was the principle that drove the medical career of Dr. Constantino P. Manahan as he rose to become a world-renowned obstetrics-gynecology... more specialist. This was the same philosophy that gave birth to Makati Medical Center, the hospital that he and other prominent Filipino doctors established in 1969.
The story of Makati Medical Center or MakatiMed began in the early 1960s when Dr. Manahan, together with Dr. Jose Y. Fores, a distinguished surgeon, and Dr. Mariano M. Alimurung, a famous cardiologist, decided to set up a world-class medical facility in Makati.
Makati was just beginning to rise as a bustling residential and commercial center. The Ayala conglomerate was still implementing the initial phases of its plan to transform the Manila suburb into the country’s premier business district. The plan required a modern hospital to service the community.
I brought my son to the ER due to he has difficulty breathing. His pulmonologist (from different hospital) advised us to bring my son to any hospital if that ever happens. But the pedia doctor in the ER... more was more curious why I did not go to my doctor since she said she does not have the medical history of my son. When I told her that our doctor advised that if my son ever had difficulty breathing (due to asthma) to go to any hospital, she answered he seems okay to me. I dont think he is having difficulties breathing. Only when I said OK if that' s what you think then we will go to another hospital. Only then did she change her attitude and a senior doctor tried to comfort us. But I decided to leave anyway.
Very expensive. There are two fees that they do not tell you about there is one doctor fee and one Hospital fee separate fees that are combined on to one bill. They will not let the patient leave the hospital... more until 60% of the bill is paid for. This hospital is inhumane and cares more about money than helping people. The doctors here also prescribed the wrong medication that would be contraindicated with the patient's past medical history.
There are directions signs everywhere inside the building which is nice. There's a clean ambiance and security in entrance and exit points which is good. Getting yourself treated here is expensive. Comparing... more the price of other medicine and medical supplies like syringe, cotton, alcohol, etc. from public hospitals is a huge difference, service fee and room charges are understandable. Sometimes Doctors are a bit rude, cold, and indifferent. They make mistakes too in as a simple Medical Certificate; typo, inputting the wrong disease, makes you wonder if they do also in a greater degree. Nurse's practice is different from other private clinics and public center. I observed that people who work here are more focused on paper works and memos rather than expressing hospitality to patients and helping them. I understand the frustration but come on, service is service.
