Wag kayong mahiya na magpunta sa mga lugar na ito mga kababayan. Ako mismo eh nagpapasuri twice a year just to be safe. Mas mabuti ng may peace of mind at alam mo kung may dapat kabang alalahanin o wala. Besides, ang mga gagawing pagsusuri ay pawang confidential at ikaw at ang mga tagasuri lamang ang makakaalam. Kung kayo o may kakilala kayo na kinakailangan ang ganitong pagsusuri – makipag ugnayan lamang po sa mga numerong nasa itaas.
