Thank you, Dr. Andrea Messenguer of Playa Grande, who in a recent medical emergency assisted a local community friend, Ellen Duggan. Ellen required emergency evacuation and subsequent hospitalization in San José due to a cardiac problem.

Because of Dr. Andrea’s quick response and assistance, Ellen received immediate treatment and did very well. She has since been released from the hospital to return home to the U.S.
