The Ensanut detailed that independent medical offices offer 60.2% of all private sector consultations, and offices that depend on pharmacies the remaining 39.5%.

The INEGI population census 2020, meanwhile, reported that 12.8% of the population goes to pharmacy offices to receive medical careand 16% to hospital institutions in the private sector.

Reviewing the figures from both studies, it is found that 4 out of 10 medical consultations in the country are in private services, either in hospitals or pharmacy offices. The latter known for charging about 50 pesos per consultation, and being easily accessible to people in their neighborhoods.

Why do patients prefer medical offices attached to pharmacies?

Pharmacy clinics are characterized by their affordable services. Consultations usually have a price that varies between 40 and 50 pesosso they are more accessible than other types of private care.

In addition, this type of modality has expanded throughout the country and to date there are already more than 15 thousand establishments throughout the national territory. That implies that there is at least one per colony and sometimes even more. With this in mind, If a person requires medical attention, they usually have pharmacy offices closer to their home than any public health center.

At the end of the day, all the reasons mentioned are what have caused this care model to triumph in our country. Although while patients prefer it, the medical community usually has another opinion because in some cases they consider it to be a form of labor exploitation.
