“According to the experience that we have developed over many years, which I have had to participate from the College of Physicians and as president, we realize that doctors know that entering the public health sector is a deception; The doctors who work and live here in Juárez are not interested in filling these positions because they know they are going to face a bad situation,” said the doctor.

According to the Heraldo de Juárez, he explained that there is a very serious problem with the relationship between social and union securitybecause he manages three payrolls, if a doctor goes on vacation, they have to cover with another, he becomes disabled and a third doctor has to come in and the IMSS pays three payrolls for benefits, this is what has plunged into poverty the health institution.

“It is very difficult to talk about this issue, because the IMSS does not like to exhibit all this series of acts of corruption that comes from within and that affects workers because there are no medicines, there are no supplies, there is no technology for diagnoses. and for this reason the squares are covered”, Lorenzo Soberanes attacked.

Lorenzo Soberane director of the College of Physicians in Ciudad Juárez, He clarified that there are specialist doctors and there are jobs, but they do not want to participate in the calls because the institutions do not take care of their integrity.
