The clinic was visited by a member of the MEDIGO Team

The clinic is just a 5 minute walk from Al Qyiadah metro station. If you follow the road signs, it's very easy to find. There is not a lot of parking spaces, but you can easily find other parking within the vicinity of the hospital. The outside and inside of the building is modern, well lit with natural light, and everything is very clean. There are maps for easy orientation and all the equipment is new. All the staff members are very helpful and willing to escort you to your desired location in the hospital. If I had a problem, I would gladly check into the hospital!
