Back doctor

Recommended Posts

My husband and I are looking to move down hopefully some time around September/October time frame. I would like to come down before hand though and see a back specialist. I have 3 herniated discs that cause me tons of pain. I was hoping someone who has similar problems, could give me some advice about a good doctor in the area along with a contract number.

We are looking forward to meeting and making new friends here ?

I have had 4 back operations for discs. three worthless and one a miracle. The one in the states bya board certified ortho was worthless. The rest here. There are some great surgeons in Guadalajara., also some bad ones just like in the states. Before surgery look into Bowen therapy which has done wonders for many here, me included.

There is  Dr. Martinez who comes to the Quality Care group location in Laguna Mall on the main road through the area. The other doctor I have seen is Dr. Gonzalez, who comes to Maskaras Clinic, on the main road west of Ajijic on the way to Chapala.  Both of them are bilingual Spanish/English speakers.  I don't remember what Dr. Martinez charged when I saw him in 2015, but recently Dr. Gonzalez charged 800 pesos for an office visit.  Both doctors have a practice in Guadalajara and come to this area once a week.

Dr. Gonzales: Contact Clinica Maskaras for appt:  (376)765-4805

Yes, Harry, I would also like the name and contact #for the doctor who did the good surgery.  (I belong to the ruptured disc club, too.)

I also recommend Bowen therapy for back problems.  Nice people, effective treatment and reasonable cost.
