DR Trip Testimonial

PDFPrintE-mail

 Dear Dr. Wil,

It was a wonderful trip in the Dominican Republic, going on the GMT trip was a great learning experience. Not only did I learn more about medicine and various diseases, I also learned about the culture and demographics of Dominican, and some spanish. In fact, after the trip I made a 2011 "new year's resolution" to learn full-on spanish by the end of the year. The GMT staff were absolutely amazing, they welcomed us with open arms and a loving heart, they adopted us for one week, they made sure we were safe, happy, and
healthy. I thank you very much Dr. Wil from the bottom of my heart for giving me and my brother the chance to go on this trip and experience this incredible journey. I admire what you have done throughout the years for the thousands of people you have touched either directly or indirectly through GMT and helped treat all those people from different parts of the world; matter of fact, you have saved thousands of lives with your beautiful organization, GMT.

Thank you

Regards,
Maikel & Mina Tawadrous

My favorite non-clinic memory from the trip was getting to know the doctors after clinic sessions. I felt that I learned a lot from them because they were the ones who guided our medical training at all times in the clinic. This is important because they earned my respect in this manner. I also learned that the doctors from Panama are extremely different from the doctors here in the United States. I can say that the doctors from Panama have more wisdom than the doctors over here due to the social level of patients that they deal with in their everyday lives. More so, apart from clinically diagnosing them, Panamanian doctors have a higher probability of diagnosing patient's with psycho-social problems apart from health related issues. Whereas, this is not so common here in North America.- Angela, Junior, Hunter College
