MAZATLAN.- Dr. Vagón has already arrived in Mazatlán and from March 2 to 5, you can attend, if you wish, to be attended to on health issues, but also if you want to have some fun.

Ricardo Reyes Díaz, medical manager of Grupo México and Dr. Vagón, explained that this would be route number 75, starting in Elota, passing through Mazatlán, and then going north through Guamúchil and ending in El Naranjo.
“What we are looking for is to leave you with the complete treatment, we are not looking to leave them unfinished, if you have an infectious picture we give you the complete picture because the impact we are looking for is to improve the quality of life,” he declared.
The idea, he said, is to deliver 500 cards per day, they are delivered in the morning, and they are scheduled for hours so that they do not wait so long in the place and thus, in one of the 17 wagons they can receive the attention they need. .
All services are free, and even, in the afternoons, they offer performances in the movie car, where attendees live the experience as if they were in the place, they are given drinks and popcorn, for everyone’s entertainment.
“Sinaloa has witnessed the growth of this program, when it was inaugurated in 2014, we were here for the first time, in fact the first community was Elota and right now we focus on the states where health services have unfortunately been destabilized,” he said. .
