  1. ang dapat nilang ayusin ay ang serbisyo ng OPD lalo na ang records section na hindi sinusunod ang batas para sa Senior Citizen at PWD… i can ellaborate more pa…. pero hindi makatao ang pagkuha mo ng record ng pipila ka ng 6 am at matatapos ka ng 3pm para sa isang sertification lang … PGH should know the value of service para sa elders and process
