hello, i’m from baguio city and my doctor advice me to undergo EMG-NCU test and i just want to inquire how much is this test?

2 10 2010

The cost depends on what exactly your doctor asked for in the request.
But usually, you should prepare around 2500.
Please call EMG NCV lab (5548400 lcal 3156) for further inquiries and for an appointment.

may angioplasty ba sa pgh? how much will it cost po ba?

20 10 2010

Coronary angioplasty po ba ang ibig nyo sabihin?
Meron, c/o Cardiovascular Section of the Department of Medicine.
Kindly ask them for cost estimate.
Thank you.

19 10 2010


do you perform neucleoplasty surgery?



20 10 2010

Please also ask the Department of Orthopedics as they perform more surgeries with regards the spine.
However, since this procedure is relatively new and machine-dependent, it is likely not yet available here in PGH.
We’ll try to confirm. Thank you.

Five years ago. August 9,2005, my daughter, Barbara Joy, was embolized by Dr. Peter Rivera and assisted by Dr, Joel Macatula for AVM . She wasn’t able to return back after her angio in 2006…Until today that she had her check-up with dr. pete…that he said that my daugther is completely healed…
I would say dr. pete was God sent to my daughter since we really prayed for him here in Bacolod that he will be the one to do the procedure. My sincerest gratitude to dr. pete, a generous and humble neurosurgeon,generous of his time to my daugther’s predicament. My gratitude too to Dr. Encanto,, Dr. Joel Macatula, Dra. Valencia, Dr. D. Roa , dr. Gil Pavilion.dr. Sheila Lim, dr. renato carlos, dr. devilas (anesthesiologist),the doctors and staff nurses who were so kind to serve us and the rest of the patients in Ward 6.and 5. Your dedication to your chosen profession will really help a lot of people out there in PGH..My gratitude also to dr. antonetter sumugat for her assistance. To all of you, God will surely bless you more… Agnes T. Zaragoza (mother )

1 11 2010

A Private Pay operation is more or less the same here in PGH. However, costs vary depending on the Surgeon’s fee and the kind of hospital room – this is true for all hospitals.
If it will be done on a charity basis, then there will be no Professional Fees.
For charity clinics, please see the Neurosurgery clinic schedule. You can also consult with the Orthopedics Department.

It is best that you talk with your doctor about this. Management decision making depends on specific patient conditions.

15 11 2010

MRI is available in PGH.
If Charity patient, the patient has to be seen first by Pedia OPD in PGH and the doctors there will give the request for MRI. (See FAQs on how to be an OPD patient)
If Private patient, please inquire with MRI section of the Dept of Radiology for scheduling and fees.

my 5 year old daughter is confined in a hospital here in batangas and initial diagnosis is to consider peripheral nerve problem probably GBS. if we’ll call and have an appointment with EMG NCV lab, after the test, can we be confined in the hospital or do we need to still fall in line and be accomodated?

23 12 2010

The EMG NCV lab is closed for the holidays.
For the next question, No. Your doctor in batangas should coordinate first with Pediatrics – ER or with Pedia-Neuro if you want to transfer.

9 01 2011

Hindi po kami nagbibigay ng prices at advice sa internet. Iba iba po ang kalagayan ng pasyente at iba iba din ang mga magiging desisyon ng doktor batay sa lagay ng pasyente. Iba iba din po ang professional fees ng private doctor.
Tingnan po ang FAQs page.
Maaari po kayong tumawag sa Neurosurgery office para makuha ang contact info ng Neurosurgery consultants.
Tingnan po ang Contact Us page.

Good afternoon po, me lumbar pain po ako pero until now hindi ko alam ang dahilan ng pain, i had emg & xray result and according to my rehab doctor I have fibromyalgia. Ayon naman po sa emg test ko meron daw akong naipit naugat sa left & right but dont know the exact location since hindi naman nai-explain ng doctor na pinagpa-check upan ko, confused po ako dahil dito kasi nag aalala din ako if ano ba tlaga ang dahilan ng sakit ko, me medication ako at hindi ko na rin po afford ang bumili ng mga gamot ko bukod pa sa walang kasiguraduhan at kulang sa explanation kung ano ba tlaga ang nararamdaman ko,

dahil na rin po sa kakulangan sa pera gus2 ko pong mag pa check up sa pgh sa charity dept., medyo nag alala lang po ako kasi kanina me mga nabasa ako dito sa site nyo na if maka secure ng blue card eh babalik pa ng 15days bago ma check up ulit, ayaw ko pong lumala ang sakit ko kaya hangat maari sana gus2 ko na po talagang matingnan ng doktor dyan sa pgh, bukas po ako pupunta (feb. 15) willing po akong pumila basta sana lang po matingnan ako doctor dyan sa pgh.

totoo po ba ung babalik pa ng after 15days bago makapag pa check up sa espesyalista? hihintayin ko po ang inyong sagot sa aking email. maraming salamat po at malaking tulong din itong site na ganito..

19 02 2011

As a new patient na nakakuha ng blue card, makikita din po kayo on the same day basta umabot po sa quota para sa clinic.
Walang “15 days” policy ang PGH. Ang maaaring nangyayari ay medyo matagal ang naibibigay na schedule sa mga specialty clinics kasi madami talagang nagpapatingin.
Sa Neuro, maaari kayong makita ng Neuro kung sa Neuro clinic kayo na-assign ng doktor sa Counter 1 o 5, at kung may Neuro clinic sa araw na iyon.

Good day. My husband is diagnosed to have cervical dystonia. I would like him to be re-assessed and have a second opinion, to which doctor/s in the field of neurology would you recommend? Hoping for your reply.

18 03 2011

Dystonia is a condition managed by neurologists.
If you want a specialist specifically for dystonia, you can consult a movement disorder specialist (a neurologist who had further training in movement disorders).
Please contact the Dept of Neurosciences and ask for a movement specialist or a dystonia specialist and they can give the clinic information.
Please see ‘contact us’ page.
Thank you.

Magandang Araw!

Naaksidente po kasi ang tatay dati at dahil dun tinanggal ung parte ng bungo niya sa harapan. Kaya pagkatapos ng balat niya, utak na yata. Sa pagkakaalam ko, maaari daw po lagyan ng metal plate o kahit anumang proteksiyon. Gusto ko lang po sana magkaroon ng idea kung magkano kaya aabutin nun. Kahit estimate lang po.

Maraming salamat!

2 05 2011

Pinakamaganda pong magpakonsulta kayo sa Neurosurgery kung pwede pang lagyan ng implant ang bungo niya at kung magkano ang metal implant at ang operasyon.
Ang isa pang option ay magpagawa ng prosthesis sa Dept of Rehab Medicine. Pwede ring doon kayo magpakonsulta. Malamang mas mura ang ganito.
(Hindi po alam ng tagasagot ng comments ang estimate)

Meron po bang ang PGH ng nasabing mga test at ano po ang kailangang dalhin bukod sa sr. citizen card?

Maraming salamat po!

Kung sa Private OPD po kayo, pumunta po kayo sa PGH-FMAB UPMC sa Taft. May MRI at carotid scan po sila. Dalhin lang ang request at senior citizen ID. Tingnan po ang FAQs page para sa link sa website nila.

Good day. May private rooms available po ba for neurological patient as of the moment? Nasa Pangasinan po kasi kami ngayon at balak ipa-transfer ang tatay ko na naka-admit ngayon sa isang private hospital dito sa probinsya papuntang pGH. Gusto Lang po sana naming maconfirm muna before transporting my dad na may bakanteng private rooms (non-charity). Last Thursday pa po siya na-admit dito and based on the first CT Scan, positive for ruptured cranial aneurysm. Pero a second CT scan (with contrast) showed negative results naman. But my dad is still suffering from severe headaches and pain behind the eyes, which are symptoms of a ruptured aneurysm, based on what I’ve read online. So he’s bedridden right now being sustained by IV and Valium (dahil sobra daw masakit)

Bukas po sana namin siya balak itransfer, so appreciate your immediate feedback. Nauubos lang po kasi ang pera namin dito sa private hospital sa province pero wala namang definite findings gusto na naman nilang ipa-Ct Scan for the 3rd time ang tatay ko dito pero di na kami pumayag at nagsabi na kaming magpapalipat na lang po

Many thanks in advance and God bless you for keeping this forum up-to-date.

20 06 2011

Please call PGH trunkline (5548400) and connect to Pay Admitting Unit for inquiries on availability of Private rooms.

hello po may cerebral aneurysm po si mama ko, cno pong dr ang specialist sa case ni mama??? punta po sna kami jan sa monday all the way from pangasinan, available po ba xa and what time??? thanks

17 07 2011

Neurosurgeon at Neurologist po ang kailangan ninyo.
Naka-admit po ba ang pasyente ninyo sa Pangasinan? Kung naka-admit kasi, dapat doktor po ang mag coordinate ng pagpunta ninyo dito sa PGH.
Kung hindi naka-admit, ang sunod na tanong ay Pay patient po ba kayo o sa Charity?
Kung sa Charity, tingnan po ang FAQs page para sa instruction.
Kung as Private Patient, maaari po kayong pumunta sa PGH-FMAB-UPMC for private consultation with a Neurologist or Neurosurgeon.
Dalhin po lahat ng plaka ng scan at mga laboratory para magpakonsulta. Thank you.
