CONTACTING DR. BRISENYO, CARDIOLOGIST

Recommended Posts

I was just referred to him for a checkup.  I have lots of confusing information, trying to clarify.  The # I was given - land phone - did not answer.  The clinics associated with him are Lakeside?  quality care?  Plaza Interlago?  Integrity?  Which is correct??  I understand he is up on the libramiento but I'm not familiar with that area because I only recently bought a car and never go up that way.  Can somebody please clarify for me where he is and what the correct phone # is?  Gracias!

Dr. Briseno is with Quality Care... opposite Tio Sams on the Libramiento. Once you see the gas station, pull to the right in the parking lot but keep going parallel to the libramiento. It will be on your right.

Please note:  376 is the area code, 766 is the local prefix for most land phones in Ajijic, 765 for Chapala.

You have selected one of the busiest specialists Lakeside. When he is there the clinic is packed. Sometimes, even after hiring an extra employee, the phones ring on. He does not answer emails, he gets hundreds per day. Last time I saw him, on a routine matter,  he substituted another highly qualified Cardiologist.You are best to walkin and make an appointment with Lety, the office manager. He is the only Cardiologist locally who has setup a cardio lab (not a stent lab). He is a second generation Cardiologist and highly respected. Just giving you a bit of a heads up - no surprises.

Letty sometimes has to take patients to their other site, around the corner, and the phone is not covered.

There are two receptionists - Lety in the main office and another woman where the lab and Leend Dental are. If they are both busy then it will just ring AND they are closed from 2-3;

Lety always tell me to call in the afternoon when it's not as busy.

A cardio lab is like a cardio treadmill test on steroids. It is used for diagnosis and supervised treatment (stronger heart  muscles).

Dr. Briseño will NOT substitute another cardiologist. He has a Dra. Cardiologist that works and assiists him but never substitutes his service.

He is a wonderful person as well as the best cardiologist this side of anywhere.  And, sm1mex is correct-he does not substitute his services.  He has an  assistant with him, but she is not substituted for him.  RUN to  get an appointment with him, or call 766-1870.  Lety is also a wonderful receptionist- really a Girl Friday.  she takes care of business!

You certainly can go to the office and make an appointment by going to Quality care. He is my cardiologist and I do that all the time.

I guess you failed to read my whole post because that's what I said as well as phoning.

I am still alive, thanks to the interventions of Dr. Hector Briseño, assisted by his father, who is also a cardiologist. Prior to Dr. Briseño, I was treated by Dr. Ramon Gaercia Garcia, who is probably now retired.

Currently, my resting blood pressure hangs around  102/61 with a pulse rate of 70 bpm.  I know that seems low, but it is keeping me alive until something else does me in.

RVGRINGO, Dr. Ramon Garcia Garcia is not retired.

He has his office in the San Antonio Hospital. He is my husband's cardiologist and we are very happy to have him still practicing here. He also has a cardio lab not a stent lab. He has all the equipment to do cardio stress tests and doplar imaging of your heart carotid arteries.

I too visit Dr. Garcia Garcia, in fact earlier this year, a morning visit resulted in his sending me to a Guad Hospital where his son (also a cardiologist) with more sophisticated  test gear than what we have here lakeside, confirmed that I needed a stent, asked me if I wanted it immediately, and I said, yes, why not. And later that same afternoon I got my first stent. The results were great.

Can you share the cost of this procedure...or was it covered by your supplement   USA insurance??
