    Female American doctor in town

    I am trying to get a message to a specific person … described above. I have numerous Mexican doctors (male and female) and have had them for years. I will be grateful for information on how to contact this particular doctora. I'm asking for someone who knows of someone who used her and was very pleased. People who used her are no longer in town. Really no need for lengthy explanation here. Thanks for helpful information in advance.

    Dementia

    All it takes is a simple telephone call! There can be plenty gleaned from public records … both by what IS and IS NOT there.

    Dementia

    Legal working status in Mexico? Verifiable?

    Dementia

    NO … not at all. Public records are generally free (at least for a trial period) and there is a great deal of information available.

    Pacemaker lakeside?

    Many practices to avoid in the US as well.

    Dementia

    What about specific background checks (public records, employment history, financial judgments, references)? Have these things checked out with the person recommended above? These things can be very revealing in the sense that anyone can present themselves as an authority, and border promotions, as we know, are common. Are there any visible red flags, gaps, etc? References must be verifiable by former employers with specific questions asked, such as, "would you rehire?" If not, what information are you willing to provide? What about significant complaints? I prefer caution, concrete facts and history, personal stability etc. over taking someone at their word.

    Pacemaker lakeside?

    Absolutely no reason to have anything much done NOB. There are very highly qualified physicians all over the place. Just ask around. If you PM me I will send you a recommendation. I can also tell you about THREE cardiological practices to avoid that you will find locally and one to definitely visit … and it may come as a surprise. I have had heart issues since birth and I am related business wise to their business as well. I don't have any vested interest other than in your health and it is disgusting to see how many people are taken for quite a financial ride. This is not new information. Hospitals and care here are the best of the best in most cases. Excellent care is available and the latest and greatest equipment and knowledge is definitely practiced here. Pacemaker implants are not a dangerous procedure.

    Hairdresser

    Panache is so overpriced and proud of it. Lulu at Blue Moon (Hacienda del Lago) is the best! Very serene place, she takes her time, does not cut too short and cuts grow out beautifully. I look forward to my time there. Edith is great but cuts way too short and inconsistently, Yoly is too busy chatting up the world and cuts are lopsided, plus the place is a zoo. All are nice people but Lulu is the best I've ever had.

    Pacemaker lakeside?

    Probably … but be sure to get a second opinion, as there are some doctors in the area that have a very high incidence of "emergency" pacemakers they implant (at very inflated prices too). Very lucrative and very low-risk. I had that personal experience with one of them who actually implanted the pacemaker incorrectly and the battery was set to run out after about a year and a half (as opposed to ten plus years). I, fortunately, had changed doctors by then, and the Medtronic people found the error. I was 100% responsible at that point for paying for another pacemaker, as my insurance had already paid for the original one and it was too soon. Buyer beware! I see that you are a "newbie" … Just be sure you are working with someone who is highly ethical as unfortunately, it is not always the case. There is also the habit of some doctors who do "referrals" to cardiologists (for a nice fee, of course) for this purpose.

    Dementia

    Does anyone have experience locally with people familiar with dementia caregivers and placement? Names that come to mind are Kerry Moon and Kassandra King. Please PM me with any information or impressions. Thanks in advance.

    Private health insurance

    There are reasons that some of the policies are so cheap! If you want GOOD insurance, send me an email address and contact information.
