  1. https://www.chapalamed.com/specialists/ Dr. Carlos Alonso Flores Valdovinos practices in Guadalajara and Ajijic as an authority on age related hearing loss and Oticon brand hearing aids. Unlike other countries, Mexican audiologists are required to obtain a Bachelor in Medicine degree in order to perform hearing diagnosis and rehabilitation. Dr. Flores is a Licensed Audiologist who received his Bachelor in Medicine from the Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara (UAG). He completed his four year Audiology medical residency at Luis Guillermo Ibarra Ibarra´s Hospital, and was licensed by the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). He has been affiliated with the Mexican Association and Mexican Council of Communication, Audiology, Otoneurology and Phoniatrics (AMCAOF- CoMCAOF) since 2017.
  2. The authorities at the check points have allowed members of my staff and patients who come in from Guadalajara to get their medical care at my office when they have signed original documentation from my office stating why their travel is necessary to such an "ESSENTIAL" business such as a medical office or hospital. I would speculate that this would also be the case if you are stopped by authorities while driving on your way to see your doctor. Plan ahead and get in touch with your healthcare providers to provide you with such documentation. I am sure that if you need to go to get your dialysis treatments, and you can provide proof of such treatments etc. the authorities should make these exceptions. Just be sure you DON'T have a fever and are wearing those face masks when you are stopped at those check points.

  6. 🤣 Of course not. Good ol' guidelines set by the AAFP, ACP and ABIM. Although it is rumored that Marijuana can cure just about anything ! JK !!!
  7. I got my question answered on TOB. TRAILRUNNER stated that the property was sold to COSTCO. Thanks and I'm sorry if I upset anyone with my question. Please accept my humble apologies. Happy holidays.
  8. They are not answering questions about the project via phone. Just a question. No need to think it's negative. The RIBERA MEDICAL CENTER on the LIBRAMIENTO(Across from El Dorado) is still forging ahead. Tentative date for opening is June 2019. Sorry if I stirred up confusion. Please disregard my post if you don't have any further information. Happy Holidays to all!
  9. Clarification: The construction is still going on. Building is about 50% complete. But from what I have heard (RUMOR MILL) is that it will no longer be a "hospital" and will only be LOCALES (Store fronts).
  10. Question. Word has it that the construction is no longer being designated to become a hospital. Can anybody deny or confirm it or deny this ?
  11. Not yet and not in the foreseeable near future. There manufacturer cannot make enough of it fast enough to keep it in stock for the U.S. market. The local reps for the company have not been forthcoming with information about it's availability in the next 6 months here in Mexico.
  12. Help us defeat Breast Cancer. Tickets are now available. Last year was great. This year we hope to double the number of participants. VIDEO FROM OUR EVENT LAST YEAR - 2017
  13. Thanks for the feedback. I try to make amends with those whom may have felt they had a less than positive experience at my practice That’s why I have a suggestion box in my office Thank you. Here are some links which may help you derive your own conclusions based on my life story, resume and the team of specialists whom I work with which include an M.D. who is a Harvard graduate. I believe the original question was asking for a PCP with a team of specialists. https://youtu.be/F5LhuQni-WE https://www.chapalamed.com/specialists/.
