The Quezon City government has advised the public that medical technologists in the city are not authorized to issue medical certificates.
The city government issued the warning after it came to its attention that the name of one of its medical technologists, Bernard Yumang, is being used as a certifying physician in medical certificates.
Any certificate with Yumang’s name is considered invalid and would not be honored, it said.
“All medical certificates with the Quezon City Health Department’s logo are only issued in the 66 health centers in the city,” it said.
It also called on the public to report individuals who issue or use these unauthorized medical certificates to the Quezon City Health Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or to Hotline 122.
