  1. I don't know where some of the info on Dr. Moya is coming from but from my own and several friends personal experiences it isn't accurate .He was recommended to me by a medical professional from the U.S. and proved to be everything I could hope for in a cardiologist .He found a problem I didn't even know I had and had me operated on in a few days to correct the problem . He told me exactly what it would cost , which compared to other doctors who have worked on me, seemed very reasonable .His rate for office consultations is the same or less than at least 4 cardiologists I have seen .For my surgery he had a young doctor on his staff take me to and from the hospital .Dr. Moya paid the hospital and I paid him later . If you don't think this is rare just check around . After my surgery Dr. Moya or one of his other doctors came to my house everyday for two weeks to check on my condition .There was no extra charge .My wife also had a serious illness that wasn't Dr. Moya's field but since I trusted him I ask for his opinion on who to see and he brought a specialist in from Guad to treat her . My advice is never take someone else's opinion when it comes to your health .See the doctor yourself , ask all the right questions and make your own decisions . There are way too many people posting info on legal or medical issues that are wrong , misinformed , or just don't know what they are talking about.
  2. Never thought I would have to ask this BUT after living in west Ajijic for 10+ years we recently moved to San Antonio and we cannot find a GOOD mexican food restaurant in the area .It can be a mom and pop hole in the wall , which we love , but not a taco stand so we can sit down and have a nice meal when wife doesn't want to cook .Rather not travel too far due to traffic so San Antonio , Riberas area would be great . I know they are out there just haven't stumbled on one yet . Gracias
  3. Cesar Martinez 331 451 6929 . Speaks english , does good work , shows up on time and charges a very fair price . I have used him for years . Has a truck and all the tools needed .
  4. Sorry operator error . Could someone please tell me the acceptable number of cars that can pass thru a traffic light after it turns red . Is it 3 or 4 I can never remember ? Almost pulled out after number 3 and lady was zooming thru and looked at me like I had done wrong .
  5. Don't know but big 2 story house . He has large extension ladder , not sure of size .
  6. He was maintenance man for company but was laid off due to covid .
  7. If you need a good , honest handy man I suggest Cesar Martinez .I have used him and recommended him many times over the years .He speaks good english , is on time does good work and cleans up when done . He is also very affordable compared to others .Electrical , plumbing , paint , roof waterproofing , tiling , construction and more . Contact him at 331 451 6929 for free estimates . Lives in Chapala has own truck and tools . Can also purchase needed items for less than I can .
  8. If you need a real estate agent that knows his business here lakeside , is honest , tireless and dedicated to his customers then in my opinion you should look no farther than TOM BARSANTI at Eager Realty . I have known Tom for 10 years and just used him on one of the most difficult sales you could imagine . He went way past what was required of him . He met with other agents , lawyers , notarios etc . trying to solve the many problems caused by the Mexican legal system , ineffective lawyers and others . He is ALWAYS available day or nite . He will tell you what you need to know if you are buying or selling , not just what you want to hear . I'm sure there are other very good agents but I would chose him every time . His wife Deborah also does a great job of photographing the home with professional equipment and knowledge of the process. She won't put her work out there until she is sure she has done her best job in presenting you property . Thanks Tom , you were a bright spot in a very tough situation . His contact number is 331 265 1062 .
  9. After a near death experience with another hospital and cardiologist in 2018 I was very careful when I again needed a cardiologist to treat severe blockage in two of the main arteries in my heart . I spoke to several friends that have used a cardiologist and many recommended Dr. Moya at Lakeside Cardiology Clinic . I can say without hesitation that I was extremely careful as I went forward with Dr. Moya . I ask question after question and told him about my previous experience . He was very concerned about the previous experience and how it reflected on quality , competent and caring doctors . He told me exactly what would happen , how I would feel and exactly what it would cost . I cannot say enough about how he treated me . He went above and beyond what was expected and continues to be involved with my aftercare three weeks later . He took me to Sanatorio hospital in Guad and the service and treatment were excellent . They seemed to be going well past the precautions that are needed due to the Covid . One of his associates , Dr. Antonio was also a great help . I have made two new friends . They treated my wife with great respect and kept her involved and informed during and after the process . There seems to always be someone that is not happy with their doctor , hospital or treatment for whatever reason but for me and my wife we couldn't be happier with Dr. Moya . As with everything thing important in life , especially your health , tread cautiously . Good luck .
  10. Sorry , it was last Wednesday . Great videos on Lake Chapala Crime Watch .
  11. I'm sure different people view Ana differently .I have used her for years , always very helpful but her personality is a little "dry "at times but I don't go there for the fellowship . She does get stretched at times trying to answer the phone , help a customer , while a third is trying to ask a "quick" question .She does know her business . By the way she robbed AGAIN last Saturday at gunpoint .

    Min Wah

    Let me give the haters something to get fired up about this morning . We have a lot of good food lakeside , some definitely poor food and even a little really good food .I don't understand why some people have to be so vicious when reviewing a dining experience . Min Wah is a perfect example .I have lived here for nearly 10 years and have eaten at Min Wah many many times during that period and got ONE less than enjoyable meal .Am I the luckiest guy lakeside , did I win the food lottery , I think not . My point is some people use the term inedible , terrible , worst I ever ate etc .Really . The only inedible meal I've had here was a pizza that the meat had gone bad .If you eat somewhere and don't like it why not just say so instead of trying to ruin a business . A simple , I didn't care for it should do and let people try it and decide for themselves . If your post turns people away instead of just giving information you are effecting the lives of the owners and employees and their family . If you don't like a place just don't go , why try to poison others ? There is a well known , long established steak house here that many diners love . My wife and I can't seem to get a decent steak there so we just don't go . I don't try to deter anyone else just because I don't care for it . OK fire away if you feel the need . You know who you are and I'm sure you'll try to justify your nasty reviews before getting off on something completely off topic and attacking your fellow posters .
  13. Yesterday my car a/c went out so I went to EuroFreeze next to Gossips to get it repaired . As I got out of my car I tripped over a broken curb and fell HARD . Before I hit the concrete , Manuel and one of his helpers were there to help me up . Lots of blood , cuts and bruises but nothing broken . Sore as hell today . As soon as I was up and while I was trying to stop the bleeding which is no easy task since I am on blood thinners , Manuel went to the Farmacia next door and came back with bandages and other stuff to treat my wounds . He never hesitated to do this and would not take a single peso although I offered him a nice amount . Needless to say there were a lot of tacos and cokes for Manuel and his men today . Don't feel sorry for my accident because I know I need to be careful when walking in the village but rather concentrate on the great kindness shown by these guys . I am not looking for reviews of their work because that wasn't the important thing in this case .Please give them your business should the need arise . Their phone number is 331 584 5209 .
  14. I can tell you from personal experience that 1.get a second opinion , they love to put stents in down here that may or may not be needed . 2.find another hospital or as Spencer says bring lots of money and have your lawyer on speed dial .PM me for more info if you want.
  15. We are paying our maid full pay til this is over . I do not want her to be riding the bus during this time for all the reasons we know . I assume most of you pay about what we do so it's not a lot of money to us but it is everything to her . She has come to work ill before , nothing serious , and it's not just for her health but ours and everyone she comes in contact with . Our friends and neighbors seem to be doing the same as us . I would have a hard time respecting someone that leaves their help to take care of themselves during this uncertain time . We are working without a net here .We are not wealthy but if we can't afford a few hundred pesos , that we were spending anyway , to help these people , then maybe we shouldn't be here. Disagree if you must but if you do it says a lot about you, not because I say so but because it's the right thing to do. A lot less talk and a lot more positive action . Pay em , you'll sleep better.

    Thanx suegarn I've been hear a long time but for obvious reasons I have avoided posting or responding to posts .I'm still learning , I DON'T have it all figured out. Feel free to help me when you see fit because I am no longer sitting on the sidelines.I'll try to remain civil but it will be hard after a lot of the things I have read over the years. Hope I won't be perceived as one of the mean people and get booted by the mods.

    People like you are the reason I resist posting here. You completely missed the jest of the post . No one was telling you how to do anything just trying to help some deserving kid's out .Glad you think you have it all figured out , such a gift.

    Wife and I had lunch at Elena's today , across from Mel's . It is mexican food , nothing more nothing less.Good food , large portions , I need a nap. Very nice people and cheerful employees .Very attentive service, checked on us often . Many selections on menu .Need to modify a menu selection , no problem. Nice replacement for the departed El Serape . Red sauce is good , green sauce is great with a bite. Plenty of seating inside and out. You may love it or you may not but they deserve a chance to serve you , give them a shot . Remember , if you don't like something doesn't mean it's wrong , just not necessarily for you. Street parking not a problem. Beer and wine available , liquor coming soon, it's mexico. 10to 10 EVERYDAY.
  20. It is with great pleasure I tell you of ANOTHER outstanding Mexican . Last Thursday at Multiva bank ATM I placed my wallet on top of the ATM while completing my transaction and it fell behind the ATM where I could not reach it due to the wooden cover .After the panic subsided I realized that not only could I not reach the wallet , no one else could either except someone from the bank . I knew the bank was closed until Monday so I figured I would just wait until then ,go to the bank and get my wallet back. This didn't keep me from worrying about it .Today at 1:30 my phone rang and it was a man from the security company that services the ATM's .He said to his surprise when he removed the cover to fill the ATM he saw my wallet on the floor .He went thru the wallet, found my phone number and called me .I met him at Multiva in about 30 minutes and he returned my wallet .He asked me to look thru it to make sure everything was there .It was, including 1000 pesos that I keep well hidden for emergencies. I thanked him several times and offered him a reward and he refused , said he was doing his job .He seemed very proud that he was able to return it and save me much grief .Again I offered the reward and again he refused .Finally I had to almost put it in his pocket to get him to take it and even then he seemed uncomfortable . I will not give his name in case he violated some company policy by taking the reward but tomorrow I will tell his company (COMETRA SECURIDAD ) what a great employee they have and I will also go to Multiva and let them know. If you've ever lost a wallet you know how stressful that can be .I know a lot of you would have expected him to keep the money , throw the wallet away and go on his way. Not every person is like that .Right is right no matter the country or nationality. Thank you again my new friend.
  21. I need info please . If you have had a pacemaker installed by a lakeside doctor or one in Guad, what was the price for only the device ?Appreciate it.
  22. I will tell anyone that will listen that they should avoid Dr. Salas and hospital Angeles del carmen at all cost .If you have used either one of them and are satisfied , count yourself lucky.My personal , painful experience is they may be a good hospital and a good Dr. but I saw the worse from both as did several of my friends , two of which are now deceased .They are an expat nightmare .PM me if you want the details but be ready for an account of what happened to me that will seem hard to believe. Do not question the accuracy of my story if you chose not to believe me because it is all in legal documents and proceedings .Good luck in your search and do not let my experience turn you against the mexican health system.
