I recently had a medical situation which required action. I went to my doctor here, Dr. Carlo Garcia, at the Maskaras Clinic, on the Carretera Hidalgo 79G in Riberas del Pilar on the way t Chapala. Tel. (376) 765-4805.
We were trying to get to the bottom of some recent pain so we started with a pelvic x-ray and when we did not get enough information from this an MRI was ordered in Guadalajara. This gave us all the information we needed and none of it was good.
I was immediately referred to Dr. Gonzalez who is head of Orthopedics and Traumatology also at Maskaras Clinic.
On review of my x-ray and MRI results he ordered an epidural asap in Guadalajara at Del Carmen Hospital.
Medications were prescribed for the pain and I carried on with my life.
We are insureed with Best Doctors here in Ajijic and we have the minimum coverage for $1,400.00 US per year with a $3,900.00 US deductible. As it turns out my condtion is not covered but what they do offer is an expert opinion from their team in the US.
I sent all my imaging discs and questionnaires to them and they came back very quickly with a very comprehensive and thorough assessment of the situation and the best treatment offered
I found this very helpful as I have always liked to get a second opionion for any any medical situation.
The reason I am writing this is to let you know that my team of doctors here at Maskaras were completely in accord with the team of experts from Best Doctors in the US.
This consultation was completely free and I am welcome to ask questions, which I have already done, and continue to be in touch with them as my condition progresses.
Yesterday I had a lst of questions which I took to my doctor’s appt. with Dr. Garcia and I had already sent these same questions to the team at Best Doctors. I am very happy to say they were totally in sync with every issue and how to deal with it going forward.
Needless to say this has even increased my level of confidence in Dr. Garcia and Maskaras. Dr. Garcia also welcomed having the expert report from Best Doctors.
When i first came to Ajijic I went to Dr. Garcia. Every time I received an opinion or diagnoss from him I sent it to my team at Sunnybrook in Toronto and always he was totally in sync with my Canadian doctors.
