Doctor referral needed

Recommended Posts

I have been going to the gyne -ob doctor at Quality Care for many years. No problem referring her for your second opinion. Dr. Illiana amos Morales,.   Prices are going up all over. Last year's $700 visit is now $800.  I think we are paying for the convenience of not having to necessarily go to Quad for specialists. So I paid $40 US for a full body skin examination. There is a non specialist doctor who charged 1200p and did really nothing but ask questions . That I feel was somewhat overcharge for the service.

Nj expat. If thats the same bloke from near bp station, i had a similar experience a few years ago. Told me how great he was etc etc, couple of mins if exam, told me i was stressed, which i told him, and his verdict was to do something that i probably shouldn't repeat hear. My partner and i did know wether to laugh or punch him. Certainly never going to the new hospital under construction.

I don't mind to pay 800.P not to have to go to Guad.  but when they say they don't do factura, I think it is a little abusive.

This happened to me  yesterday.

They will give you a receipt other than factura which is good for Canada Revenue. Abusive is a rather over the top word for what you describe.

There are many stories like this about that.

jguerin:  where did that happen?  I have never had Quality Care not provide a factura when requested.

I am Canadian but no insurance in Canada I am permanent here.  I have a Mexican insurance that pay me back only with a Factura.

 

CRA for tax refund on medical expenses only require an ordinary receipt. As a Canadian you do still pay Canadian  income tax. Has nothing to do with your Mexican insurance.

I moan on many gringo prices lakeside,  but to be fair 800 is reasonable.  I compare prices in guadalajara and 600 pesos to see a specialist  is the norm. So 800 for here isnt bad.

However theres a couple who charge 1000 , 1200 .thats gringo rip off here.

Its pretty sad that a GP doctor in Mexico only makes enough to pay for rent, certainly not enough to buy a house. All the big money goes to the specialists and often times it's the GP that discovers a life threatening condition requiring the expensive surgeries and hospital care.

Veterinarian is a much better profession here because they can sell so many other things ( food, toys etc )

Doctors can sell things also (supplements, books, any health related items).
