The clinic was visited by a Medigo team member

It's pretty simple to find the clinic, you can easily get there via taxi, from a nearby metro station, with a bus, or by simply walking. Parking spaces are limited, so you have to park somewhere close by. There are 3 buildings side by side, but you have to go inside one of them and ask the receptionist where your appointment is. The facilities looked modern and everything was clean.
