    Where do you try on the clothes and is there a mirror?

    Very good.  I was able to reach him at that number.  Thank you.

    So Chuy Lopez did come out to discuss work I needed done.  We made an appointment. He got sick and did not make the appointment.  He told me he really wanted the job, so we rescheduled.  No Show.  I called and sent WhatsApp. No replies.

    "What to do when a tenant does not pay rent in Mexico 2021?

    If the tenant does not pay the rent or other amounts to which he has agreed such as electricity, water, etc., the landlord has the option of going to court to demand payment of that debt and even the eviction of the tenant. property (eviction), and all in the same lawsuit.Dec 28, 2021

    Probably looks good on paper, but I have no confidence in the system.

  4. Leases mean nothing in Mexico.  People rarely get deposits back.  Best to just not pay the last month.  There is no reasonable due process here and as stated above, it can last years and then EVEN if you win, how to collect is an issue. I have heard lots of horror stories from people I know.

    Why is it "every" medical experience has to end up in a xissing match, point/ counterpoint .Please respect everyone's experience, we all have different minds, bodies, and expectations. Also HJ some of us are tired of your photograph postings as if to add more veracity to your experiences

    Yes Lakeside.  I feel the same way.  There are nice photos of bad people too in this world.  Anyway, Dr. V may be a very good surgeon. I just found him arrogant as well.  To not bring water to a sick patient is really pitiful and inexcusable.

    Zeb described a miserable visit with Dr. V.  Why jump on him for reporting the facts of it?

    My now deceased husband and I were patients of Dr. Valenzuela on different occasions. My treatment by him included surgery. I found him insufferably arrogant. And that's exactly the word I've heard used by others to describe him. He may be a skillful surgeon. My experience was acceptable.  But I wish there were other choices at Lakeside for gastro surgeons. Locally he's what we have.

    Happyjillin just does not understand that we are describing our experience with this physician.  It upsets him. He thinks we are creating fiction and is taking it personally.  He is defensive child and you cannot reason with this type even though no one has criticized him. Best to ignore at this point.

    I didn't say you couldn't have an opinion....I just added my opinion.......that you were wrong, are wrong and will probably remain wrong. 

    There, I added my opinion ton your opinion.

    Wrong??? I described my experience.  There is no wrong or right. It was what it was.

    Once again, this has turned int a personal attack from me just describing what happened.  There is no agreeing or disagreeing of what someone's experience was.

    Please act according to the information given on your website, You people show Hospital San Antonio del Lago de Chapala is one of the best hospital and the care of the patients is taken at very high level, which is not true. Being admitted to the private ward, if the facility is given as same as general ward then it is of no use to get admitted in Private ward. I hospitalized my son two months back and faced many such issues. I had to shift my son to another hospital due to your staff’s carelessness. 

    I have decided that I will never visit San Antonio del Lago de Chapala nor I will even suggest anyone to come here. You people charge a huge amount beyond the capacity of a patient but do not give any importance to the patients and the facilities. No basic attention given, no changing of bed-sheets and when asked to do so the reply we get is it can't be changed now. The hospital charges a decent amount at a time of admission from insurance availing patients and giving assurance that it will be refunded if there is no use of non-surgical item. But at the time of final bill you people add extra money in that and give the patients a hefty bill. If a person is having low BP and you people get him admitted, immediately after 24 hours you people discharge him and makes a ransom bill without doing any check-up, then it is not fair. There are many such complaints which you people do not focus. This is a poorly managed hospital in Chapala, Mexico.

    I agree based on my own experience there.  I also had someone in the office block my e-mails when I mentioned their advertisement about accepting US insurance is not accurate.  They have no understanding of customer service or handling a complaint in a professional manner.

    You ALSO made a mistake attacking him.....and as to a 1000 peso fee....that is posted in several places and you knew it before you agreed to the visit with him.

    There is a shaman in San Juan that offers water bottles and shakes some bones in a bag and only charges 200 pesos. Give that a shot next time.

    Wow!  Are you critical and judgmental! Just plain mean....

    I attacked no one. I described my personal experience as it happened.  You are the one attacking me at this time and being insulting.

    Yes.  I knew the cost. That does not mean I don't get to have an opinion about it.

    Hector V is a surgeon not a gastro..That would be Daniel Briseno at QC.  Hector V successfully did my 2 sports hernias and removed my gall bladder. He AND Daniel B  are polite and caring with their patients  I highly question your veracity.

    Yes. I made a mistake on his specialty when I posted.

    I agree with Happyjillin.   I have had surgery with Dr. Valenzuela and multiple endoscopies with Dr. Daniel Briseno !!  The two are top notch, one as a  surgeon and the other as a Gastroenterologist and later is a good diagnostician. 

    Zeb, you might not want to make such a petty comment on the webboard.  Does not make you look too bright!!  

     

     

    Judgmental remark.

    I guess if a person is in the Walmart check out line and asked for water they too would respond the same and not get water. 

    Ah here we go, I am somehow to blame even though I was sick........and needed help.  If someone asks me for help or water, I stop and help.  It's the right thing to do.

    I agree. Sorry he didn’t provide water to the poster but I agree he was not there to go out into the lobby to serve water. I understand the situation of the poster but please remember to bring your water or ask staff before seeing the Dr. 

    He has staff.  When a patient is not well and requests water, doctor should help by either getting staff to bring it or get it.  This is human kindness!  I am not surprised I am being made the one at fault on this forum.  It is pretty well what I expected from some of the people here.    No one is no high and mighty in their credentials that they should refuse to get water for a patient.

    Here is my experience with , Valenzuela at Quality Care.  It was my first visit and I was in some pain.

    When I got into his office, I realized I had forgotten my water in the car, so I asked him if had some water.  Here is the conversation below:

    1. Do you have water?

    Him:  no

    Me:  No water in the entire office?

    Him: No.

    What about in the lobby?

    Him: Yes

    Me: Could you please mind get me some?

    Him: No

    Me:  Why?

    Him: Because I am in here with you in a consultation.

    So, instead him simply asking his staff to bring me some water, I got up and asked the staff myself and they did bring it into his office for me.  If I had not been in pain and in need of some quick help, I would have walked out.

    For this type of treatment, I paid a ridiculous 1,000 pesos, which way more money than is reasonable for being in Mexico.

    I rgot medication etc. he recommended and followed instructions and none was helping.

    I decided to get another opinion and saw someone in Guadalajara.  He gave me a completed different diagnosis and treatment and the problem was solved in a short time.

    So...Dr. V made be good at surgery, but not much else.

    I've posted at least twice on RMC. My experiences were good and excellent. It would be nice to hear from others. 

    I had an emergency about a month ago and had someone take me there.  The care was pretty good, although my case was simple.  One criticism I do have of their procedure and that is, that the guard should not be stopping people to get their information when they are going to the Emergency Entrance.  The can get your name once you check in.

  17. Here is my experience.  It was not good.  I had colonoscopy there.  I was left in a cold hallway waiting outside the OR.  I told them I was cold.  No one make any attempt to get a blanket.

    After the procedure, I was put in bed and neglected. Bed was not cleaned. I asked for help three times.  I was then told them had staff shortage.  Not my problem.  I am paying a high price (for Mexico) for care.  I was also placed on a bed near the emergency entrance so everything was open.  Only bathroom nearby by was one everyone used.

    I will never go there again voluntarily.

    I also want to comment on Dr. Carlos Garcia.  When my spouse was alive, we got scripts from him for pain.  He made a mistake so that it would not be filled.  That of itself is not good, but can be corrected.   I went to his office to get a new one and he was incredibly rude and kept me waiting while he saw two other patients.  He knew this was an urgent need and could easily excused himself,  just re-written it and given it to me.  He was angry with me when I stopped in before he took yet another patient.  I want to add that I was very calm and polite with him.  I was not angry when I got there, but really, he was aggravated that he got interrupted. This was a prescription for Morphine, so it was urgent.

    I can say two more things and I am sure someone will not like it.  This week a friend overhead him say "we need to stick it to the gringos."  Also, another physician told me that Garcia really didn't care about patients, only making plenty of money.

    I apologize.  That was apparently an old number on my reference card.  I checked with my spouse, and the current number is 331 459 0784.  He keep the phone with him, and if he doesn't answer, it saves your number and he'll call you back a.s.a.p.

     

    Very good.  I was able to reach him at that number.  Thank you.

    Yes, Chuy needs more work right now, so it's a good time to call him.  You can say he was recommended by the Deckers.

    I have called twice. Goes directly to voice mail.  Any other options?

  20. I find the search feature on this site really frustrating.  Maybe there is a better way to do it than the way I do it.  If I put in the full name of a person, I get results with one of the names but not both.  Anyone have  a better way?

    Yep, climate changes every year for either better or worse. This year we are getting the worse, but it will change and then we will get the better. Just may have to wait a while. :D

     

    Yes, of course.  Climate change is normal.  Greenland is all ice, but got its name because one it was at one time, green and lush.
