Resource: Yap State News Brief/ April 15, 2013

A team of ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists will be visiting Yap to conduct a clinic at the Yap Memorial Hospital on Monday, April 22 to Thursday April 25, 2013, according to a statement by the Department of Health Services.

The Health Services Department stated that the otolaryngology team is specialized in treating health problems of the ear, the nose and the throat, including those involving the neck.

A pre-screening by the State Hospital, Community Health Center (CHC) sites and dispensaries is currently ongoing until Thursday, April 18, 2013.

People with ear, nose and throat or neck problems should attend screening at the hospital from Monday to Friday at the outpatient clinic, from 12:30-4:30 PM.

The CHC sites are also doing screening on a daily basis; however, people must contact them to verify their appointments before they go in for a visit.

The Department of Health Services announced that screened patients will be given priority based on a finalized list. Those that have not been screened at the hospital or at any of the CHC sites or dispensaries but wish to see the specialists may still do so, but only if there is sufficient time.

The Department of Health Services also requested all the Neighboring Islands dispensaries to continue communicating with the Primary Health Care Division at the Department to make sure that arrangements for those who may need this special service from each of those islands are made before the team arrives.

For more information, please contact the Department of Health Services at Tel: +(691)350-2110/3446.
