Have you seen the latest video from Unilab? It’s about their Husay at Malasakit campaign.
‘Di lang maraming nalalaman, maraming natutulungan
Magaling sa ginagawa, mapag-alaga sa kapwa
Makabago man ang proseso, hindi nawawala ang puso
Bawat hakbang may husay, bawat galaw may malasakit
Para lahat ay masaya, masigla, panatag
Ganyan kami nagsimula, ganyan kami magpapatuloy…
Husay at Malasakit, UNILAB ‘yan!
You know what entered my mind when I watched this commercial? It reminded me of our pediatrician since birth and up until our teenage years. My family resided for a few years in Sta. Ana, Manila, the nearest hospital to our place was Trinity General Hospital, so Nanay gave birth to me and my brother there. So our first pediatrician was from that hospital too, her name is Dra. Sonia Lopez. She has the most lightest hands ever, I’m always looking forward for my check-up with her because she would massage my tummy and I like it (haha, obvious bang mahilig ako sa massage noon pa?) She was our doctor when we’re still sickly kids, especially my brother. Even after we relocated in Malabon, then moved to Caloocan, Nanay will still bring us there kahit malayo na. Nanay tried bringing us to other doctors and clinics near our area, pero di kami gumagaling. Have you experienced this too? Doctors prescribe the same medicines naman to illnesses but still, hindi kami hiyang, unless we’re handled by Dra. Lopez. I think we’re used to her TLC na. This goes to show that hindi lang kelangan magaling ka, you have to show love and concern to your patients too.
Same experience with Gwen’s pediatrician, her pedia is in Chinese General Hospital, Dra. Teresita Lim. I can tell that she’s really good, every time we have a check up there, we have to go early before her clinic starts para magpalista na. By the time she comes in to her clinic, mga around 20 patients na ang nakalista. She checks her patients thoroughly that’s why it really takes a while pag marami nang nauna sayo. One time, we got tired of waiting in line and since medyo malayo din yung Chinese General Hospital from our place, we decided to go to other pedia which is also referred to us by our friend, magaling din daw, and her clinic is just 5 minutes away from our house, very convenient. Gwen has a fever that time and the new pedia prescribed medicines for her fever and ordered some lab tests. We followed her instructions but after a day or two with Gwen still nursing a fever, we’re back at Dra. Lim’s clinic. We never switched doctors since then. Mas kampante kami, she’s already in her late 40s, but despite that, she shows expertise in what she does. Minsan isang tingin pa lang, she knows exactly what’s wrong. Yet she remains calm even if malala na yung sakit ni Gwen. She shows concern not only to Gwen but also reaches out to us parents, comforting us that Gwen will be fine.
Do you know what these two doctors have? Husay at Malasakit. In life, we all need that little extra to make a difference.
Just like my family’s trusted brand, Unilab. From Gwen’s vitamins, Ceelin, to our vitamins, Enervon, we entrust our health to Unilab. Unilab goes as far as making sure that the kids will love the taste of their medicines.
In my household, it’s only Expel for cough and Disudrin for colds. We tried other brands but Gwen doesn’t want to drink it, but for Expel and Disudrin, she asks for more. Again, that added extra TLC from Unilab made a whole lot of difference.
