Retired Expat Had Seconds to Make Life-Saving Decision
Daniel and his wife Emma retired to Cuernavaca, Mexico years ago. When Dan felt a pain in his head and had trouble getting up, his wife called their family physician. The doctor said it was likely that Dan had an aneurism and would need immediate surgery. He wanted to call an ambulance to take Dan to a small private hospital with fewer than a dozen beds. Based on the their experience in the United States, this place seemed more like a clinic than a hospital. Was this the best place to be treated or should Dan be evacuated to the US?
You’d really need to know more about the medical system in Mexico to make this kind of decision. The English Speaker’s Guide to Medical Care in Mexico offers comprehensive support for travelers, expats, business people and those seeking to reduce medical costs or find reputable specialized care.
For Daniel, the private hospital was literally lifesaving. His family physician was able to pull together a team of five surgeons and other physicians and surgery was underway within an hour. Nearly recovered now, Dan feels that the personal care, highly skilled surgeons and quick response he received in Mexico literally saved his life.
