    Fellow BOGS, a BOG PM'd me asking where are places in town that do dialysis
    and are not so expensive. I replied below . But there are doctors in BOGS who might have additional data -- pls. add your info. And maybe some other guys can add some info.


    'My doctor friends indicate Manila Doctors' Hospital
    (along UN Avenue) and Manila Adventist Medical Center (Donada, San Juan Sts,
    Pasay). Initial expenses inclusive of materials, not including doctor's fees
    are: P 5,200 (MDH); P5,500 (MAMC); but SUBSEQUENT dialysis = P 3,500 (MDH); 3,300
    (MAMC).
    Pasay General Hospital offers dialysis
    services at P1,000 per dialysis,but without supplies and doctor's fee. The
    supplies would cost around 1000. Doctor's fees really have a wide range, but
    for financially-strapped patients, the doctor can even waive it.


    Hope this helps,xxx. At Doctor's and Manila Adventist it's only the first dialysis which is over p5000 - the subsequent ones are a lot less; Pasay General Hospital is the least expensive.

    Well, I hope this helps,xxx. I am most familiar with Pediatrics so i had to ask others about this. All the best, xxx.'

    Sir Ante,

    Try Mary Chiles General Hospital at Gastambide Sampaloc ( near UE Dentistry Building) Near mendiola.

    Mary Chiles General Hospital
    667 Gastambide St., Sampaloc, Manila
    Phone 735-5341; 741-4242; 741-9541

    I use to work there MCGH is the (Cheapest) inexpensive (complete facility)private institution for mother and child health care and for dialysis in manila area . MD there are also practising at UST, UDMC, FEU, Asian Hospital and St. Lukes.
    Patients from the said hospital had their dialysis done at MCGH at a lower price.

    tell our co-BOG to inquire coz i left MCGH 1995 pa.

    MCGH is run by the Florendo's family of MD's.

    I think I saw a sign along Shaw Blvd very near 9 de Pebrero going to edsa that says dialysis "P2,500" per session. I may be wrong though, never checked it personally.

    I was the one who pm-ed ante about the dialysis.
    Again I would like to thank ante for the help.

    Actually we found the cheapest dialysis service in quezon city.
    The place is called St. Theresa's dialysis center. First session is almost 3,300, succeeding sessions is only 1,700 all in.

    For residents of City of Manila, dialysis is free on first come first serve basis at Ospital ng Maynila. But this is only for "clean" patients. Those with hepa or other virus infections are disallowed.

    Sayang nga kasi my father in law (an ex cop based in the tough streets of our neighborhood in tondo) expired yesterday (saturday). He underwent dialysis at chinese general hospital, his first as an outpatient after being confined for four weeks at CGH.

    You could also try the Philippine Kidney Dialysis Foundation; it is located at 79 Scout Gandia near the corner of Tomas Morato in Quezon City. My wife says its only P1,700 per session for reused and P2,700 per session for new dialyzer. Phone number is (02) 373-5366.
