  1. My experience with her was not good. It was years ago and she didn't strike me as being on the ball. One example is that she had me go to Guad for a special thyroid test and she wanted the results sent to her office in the city. We had an appointment to discuss the results here in town and when she showed up for it she hadn't brought them so couldn't discuss them. A waste of time. Then I went to another Endocrinologist about my thyroid and after talking with me she wanted me to go for a mammogram and then come back. What would that have to do with my thyroid? I went to a third one and he just wanted to push some vitamins of some sort that he produced with his name on the label. 3 strikes for me on Endocrinologists. Sorry there isn't one I can recommend for you.
  2. This post is two years old. It would be better to start your own new post.
  3. I don't understand what you mean. They won't have what support programs to assist them? An emergency will put them in what kind of distress?
  4. More about these two doctors and their "statistics". https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/04/28/cue-the-debunking-two-bakersfield-doctors-go-viral-with-dubious-covid-test-conclusions/
  5. You should give her full pay! Her bills didn't just drop by 60%, did they?
  6. There has been a Caremongering group for this area set up on Facebook but it is geared towards helping foreigners who need help, I think. Language is the issue that would keep the Mexican community from reading it and taking part. https://www.facebook.com/groups/3660232657383288/ Operation Feed in San Juan Cosala is asking for help to feed extra families who have lost their employment. https://www.facebook.com/OperationFeedsjc/
  7. Not in the Laguna Mall. He is located in Interlago Plaza. I would recommend him too.
  8. The workers are not allowed to enter homes, so don't worry about it. They will conduct the survey at your door.
  9. Pesos for Paws are set up to take donations through the Foundation for Lake Chapala Charities, which provides tax receipts for Americans. I don't know how they differ from Tails of Mexico but I think they are set up that way too.
  10. Would you be willing to contribute so that they can do more? There is a new organization to raise funds for this named Pesos for Paws. You could also volunteer at the spay and neuter clinics to be of help if funding is not possible. https://pesosforpaws.org/about-pesos-for-paws/
  11. We ate there today too. I had the 125p chicken gyro which was a little messy to eat but delicious. My husband had the 80p American style hotcakes which are topped with fried eggs, bacon, and grilled ham slices. He enjoyed it very much. Both were well worth the price!
  12. There is no reason to do that and as many have said, there are Ophthalmologists like Dra Camacho right here in town who speak perfect English. A translator is unnecessary. In fact Dr Rios of Alta Retina in Mirasol can consult with you in perfect English (755 1521) and then does the surgery here in town too at the new hospital in San Antonio. That's another option.
  13. Using the CBX is a little bit risky in my opinion, because there is no INM office there for registering that you are leaving and re-entering Mexico. There is an INM office somewhere in Tijuana (a couple of miles away I think) and if you were following the rules you would have to go there to do that process, before coming back to the airport and crossing to the United States. There is no one at the airport to turn your documents in to. To do what you are suggesting, you would be leaving Mexico without registering that you are, and although you would probably never be found out, what if you were? For that reason, when I went to San Diego last week to cruise on the Oosterdam, I flew direct to San Diego. I have a Permanente visa and wouldn't want to have problems with it.
