I had the pleasure of speaking with the CEO and physiotherapist of Clínica Particular de Lagoa, Patrícia Santos.

The Clínica Particular de Lagoa (CPL) offers a new solution for your healthcare needs here in the Algarve. The clinic is located at Rua da Liberdade, 38 in Lagoa and is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays, receiving clients from the municipality of Lagoa as well as a growing number of clients from neighboring municipalities, including Albufeira and Portimao.

The clinic was founded in 1992, originally as the Lagoa Physiotherapy Clinic. They have 25 years of experience and have adopted a strategy of innovation, development and expansion through which in 2014 they opened a new space now known as Private Clinic of Lagoa where they offer excellence in a range of health care and a wide range of medical specialties. along with physiotherapy.

At the private clinic in Lagoa, Patrícia Santos claimed that their “physiotherapists and doctors speak English and are available to help expatriates with their healthcare needs.” Patrícia also told me that “the physiotherapy service has an efficient and friendly team of 10 physiotherapists as well as three doctors who are present every day and offer support to the Lagoa retirement home”.

In terms of services, “we also offer clinical analyzes in partnership with HPA Health Group in various specialties, exclusively in clinical analyzes and we offer breakfast to anyone who comes to do clinical analyzes with us.”

A unique clinic

I asked Patrícia what makes the clinic unique compared to other health services and she replied: “We are well located in terms of location; we are the only ones to offer a quality service in the field of health between Portimão and Albufeira and the only clinic to have health insurance agreements.”

Patrícia also explained, “I think we make a big difference compared to other services because of the intimate relationship we have with our clients. We have an intimate relationship with our clients, as some of our clients have been coming to our clinic for over 20 years. I believe that the clinic has evolved and grown through the intimate relationship we have created and that our clients see us not only as professionals, but also as people they can trust and for whom we do a extra effort. She added that “a lot of what we do is to offer general consultations every day, many of our clients find there are long queues in other departments, but we have doctors available every day, so we have a fast turnaround rate for appointments. we can give clients a same day or next day consultation.”

“Many of our clients come from Portimão, Silves, Albufeira, they come here for the quality of our physiotherapy service, we have excellent quality specifically with that and many years of experience on the physiotherapy side and of course thanks to the growing number of medical specialties we’ve acquired means we’ve increased the number of specialists working with us, which is great. We also do minor surgeries, which makes us different. She also explained that in terms of of location, they are easily accessible “there is a huge car park available near the Lagoa public swimming pool which offers our customers parking nearby”.
