Before a seafarer can work on board a ship, he/she is required to undergo medical examinations to verify his capability or fitness to work. That's the main reason why seafarers should value their health or else they will lose their jobs.
A few months ago I was instructed by my agency to undergo medical examination at SuperCare Medical Services Inc. as a basic requirement for employment. SuperCare or SMSI is located at 573 Patria Bldg., Maria Orosa cor. Engracia Reyes, Ermita, Manila.
Actually, that was my first time to undergo medical examination at SuperCare since my previous agency sends their crew into a different clinic. Here's my personal experience and observation regarding SuperCare's services and facilities. Take note that this is just my personal experience and this does not reflect what others may experience too.
