  1. OK Harry here is some info about treatment at the hospital in the Las Fuentes area. My friend has Seguros Popular and needed surgery for a severe bunion on her foot. She had seen a Seguro Popular orthopedic surgeon and was scheduled for surgery. She asked me to come stay a few hours with her since I speak Spanish and it was their requirement that she have a companion. So I showed up and the surgeon had not yet arrived. They were having trouble getting her blood pressure. I stayed 2 or 3 hours and still no surgeon. So finally she told me to go home and she would call if she needed me. About two hours later I called her home where her friend was waiting for her, and I got her on the phone. I asked what are you doing home already and she said when they administered the sedative her blood pressure sky rocketed. The surgeon said they could not do it with her pressure over 200 so she was sent home. She went to the SP cardiologist to see what is going on and turns out she has a heart problem, they did charge her some money for the Holter monitor test. She has returned to him and is on medication, but also got a second opinion from Dr. Brisena, another private cardiologist who confirmed the heart diagnosis. So for now surgery is on hold, and thanks to the doctor who stopped the surgery she is still alive. There was some difficulty with her understanding the cardiologist since she doesn't speak Spanish. But otherwise she had excellent service.

  10. I agree be very careful with any doctor there.
  11. No it has not happened to me. I have Merrill Lynch. Call you investment advisor.
  12. I got mine at Illumina y Decora next to Sunrise Restaurant. Have had them many years and still in perfect condition. We discussed what type and the owner suggested ones with tiny pin holes to let in some light but block the heat. they work great. They are installed on the outside of the house so I can keep them up and still use my curtains when I want inside.
  13. Thank you Harry, helpful as always.
  14. Could you please give me the location in Chapala. Thanks
