  1. Our team continues to grow each day. We'd like to welcome Dr. Claudia Plancarte.

    • Graduate of University of Guadalajara 
    • Specialized in Geriatrics and Palliative Care at the University of Guadalajara and University of Barcelona, Spain. 
    • Board certified by the Mexican Counsel of Geriatrics and is a member of the National College of Geriatric Medicine. 
    • Provides care to patients in our medical offices, home visits and nursing homes.

    She will be working closely with the current CHAPALA MED team of physicians on cases that require her level of expertise.

    Her consults are the most comprehensive I've seen and encompass everything from nutrition, exercise, fall-proofing a home and avoiding poly-pharmacology.

    Empathetic and great bedside manner.

  2. "Functional Medicine" is not recognized as a medical specialty by the SEP ( Mexico's Dept. of Education).  There are no "FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE" specialists in the area as far as I know but there are some whom say they practice "Functional Medicine".  You can read about my research and experiences with this type of medicine  at the following link:

  7. I recommended her on FACEBOOK a few days ago. I am reposting that recommendation.


    I´ve referred several of my patients to Dr. Camacho for urgent eye care. They were all very pleased by her excellent level of expertise, care and bedside manner. After meeting and working with her I feel very confident about her level of expertise and professionalism. Her fluency in speaking English is top-notch. She has offices in the Chapala Lakeside and in Guadalajara. Needless to say, I highly recommend her.

  8. Dr. Evelyn Rodriguez comes to Chapala Med on Saturdays by appointment as well as my Guadalajara office during the week, also by appointment.

    She is a top anesthesiologist and pain management physicians who is on staff at CENTRO MEDICO de OCCIDENTE

    in Guadalajara. She has helped me manage my patients @ Lakeside and when they have been hospitalized in Guadalajara.

    Being an anesthesiologist she is on top of all the new and multi-modal therapies available here in Mexico for pain management.

  9. Since starting my practice here in Lakeside I have had a few patients from some of the previously mentioned Plastic Surgeons listed here come into my office. I was certified in Aesthetic Medicine by a prominent plastic surgeon in Miami. I've seen some patients who've needed work redone by some of those plastic surgeons mentioned.

    In my professional point of view, I do believe I can appreciate and thus recommend the most talented plastic surgeon(s) who's work I've seen come into my office. Most have impressive and similar resumes and certifications.

    Please allow me to put it to you this way, If you ask a professional highly trained musician he/she will be able to tell you the difference between a "piano player vs. a PIANIST". This type of surgery is an art form. And as with any art form it requires an innate talent.

    Talent is a gift that not all are born with or not all have developed to a level of excellence.

    INBOX me for more information.

  10. You may be interested in studying this function.


    Thank you Privado, am considering a visit to the endo as well.

    Thank you for the link. But there is no EVIDENCE BASED/Allopathic Medical literature according to my latest search.

    There is no such condition in any medical text book such as Robbin's or the Merk or any of my Endocrinology books from Medical school.

  11. I haven't heard of any condition/disease by this name.
    I think that an ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE PRACTITIONER would be able to handle "ADRENAL FATIGUE".

    Adrenal fatigue
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Adrenal fatigue
    Classification and external resources

    Adrenal gland

    Adrenal fatigue or hypoadrenia are terms used in alternative medicine to describe the unproven theory that the adrenal glands are exhausted and unable to produce adequate quantities of hormones, primarily the glucocorticoid cortisol. Adrenal fatigue should not be confused with recognized forms of adrenal dysfunction such as adrenal insufficiency or Addison's Disease.[1][2]
    The term "adrenal fatigue" may be applied to a collection of mostly nonspecific symptoms such as "tiredness, trouble falling asleep at night or waking up in the morning, salt and sugar craving, and needing stimulants like caffeine to get through the day". There is no scientific evidence supporting the concept of adrenal fatigue and it is not recognized as an actual diagnosis by the medical community.[1]
    Blood or salivary testing is sometimes offered by alternative medical practitioners to diagnose adrenal fatigue, but these tests lack a scientific basis.[1] The concept of adrenal fatigue has given rise to an industry of dietary supplements marketed to treat this condition. These supplements are largely unregulated in the U.S., are ineffective, and in some cases may be dangerous.[1]

  12. I have a great Ortho whom I refer to and is part of my network of Specialists. I oversee the entire process and ensure that you get the needed post-surgical care from the surgeon, PT and any other specialists that may be needed. I believe in treating the whole person, not just the knee.

  13. Lisinopril is available.

    I'd recommend you get the name brand if you are planning on buying it in Mexico. It's been my experience that the "Generics/Similars" are not as efficacious as the name brand meds.

    In the end, it could end up costing you a whole lot more if you don't keep your Blood Pressure under control as your doctor recommends you do.
