Over time, the immense public approval of services offered by our employees has led to our robust growth,” he added. “In Kenya, the local primary healthcare facility (dispensary) is meant to be the first line of contact with patients.”

He sees the need to develop working solutions by Kenyans for Kenyans. Being a thought leader and pioneer in the healthcare industry in Kenya, his patience, focus, and resilience continue to grow, bringing more and more innovations and interventions that make his clinic a leading edge.
