Dr. Carranza-Baez, 612 122 2839 meets your requirements. An active Naval Surgeon who maintains a private practice in the evenings. He preformed a very difficult 2-1/2 hour surgery on my left hand which totally restored complete use a couple of years ago. He started with a claw.
I doubt if his receptionist speaks English but he sure does.
In general I have found the military trained Doctors to be exceptional in Mexico.

Epley Maneuver didn't help me, sorry no help. I went to Dr Oliver Chung for acupuncture treatments which eliminated all vertigo! Results are worth it, totally. Five years ago, Dr Chung ended 30 years of Migraines for me and since that time I've only had 2 that required a pill and 3 that went away after about 30 minutes! Prior, I'd had them 24/7 for 5 months straight! Highly recommend Dr Chung and his daughter, Dra Chung,

Shingles is very painful and can last for years. It's recommended that everyone older than 60 who has had chickenpox should be vaccinated. I don't remember having chickenpox, but the vaccine isn't harmful, according to doctors and the internet.  Dr. Alonso Flores Lopez has the vaccine so I went to his office yesterday. He showed me the expiration date on the box which was reassuring. The medication is the same one they use in the States, but he charged a third less than they charge there. The actual shot was quick and painless. Dr. Flores is located on Serdan #640 between Republica and Torre Iglesias. His phone 125-5899 email:

#1  I need some blood work done and I am looking for a lab in  LaPaz. 

The lab at Fedipaz hospital is  excellent, fast, good charges and you can pick up the results in a few hours or  have them emailed to you.  You do not need a doctors order for lab work  here.. so if you know what you want just write it down translate into Spanish  and take in with you


  A dermatologist recommendation  - Need moles removed
Dr. Augustin Anguiano Acuna    612-125-4300   Speaks English, excellent
dermatologist.  I have  seen him many times.  Email me for directions to his office.

The lab next door to the Similares on the corner of Cinco de Mayo and Madera will do a complete blood check and have your results back in less than an hour. 200 pesos- can't beat that.

Knee Doctor

Post by dean on Sat May 18, 2013 7:19 am

lpg

Hands down top notch: Dr. Javier Escamilla in Cabo. 624-195-3030 or cell 624-355-4923. My boyfriend had a total knee replacement performed by Dr. Escamilla at the very end of January. For well over a month now, he has been riding his mountain bike on the single track trails around Todos Santos. He was barely able to walk prior to surgery - not to mention his outrageous pain. His recovery (it has been less than 4 months now) has been amazing. It has been a stellar experience with Dr. Escamilla. We believe the attention, care and treatment was far superior to any in the US (where we are from). I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Dr. Escamilla.

medicine price discussion

Post by dean on Thu Jul 26, 2012 8:34 pm

lpg
A couple of years ago when Club Cruceros gave a donation to the Doctora in charge of terminal cancer patients she went to Guadalajara to purchase the drugs at half the price in Baja Sur. That started a few of us checking the price of common things. We definitely pay 50-200% more than other Mexican states for the same items. Latest example which seems to affect most Mexicans and non-Mexicans alike, is the drug quinfamida, which is used to combat stomach parasites. Every company in Mexico makes it, but the pricing varies radically. Last week we bought two boxes at the same time at the same drug store in La Paz. Not a high priced one either. We paid 374 pesos each. One box said the price could not go over 270, and the other 340. When we checked on line we were able to buy from ospharma.com at 54 pesos apiece, and that box said not to be sold over 68 pesos! Shipping in Mexico is five bucks registered mail, or fifteen to USA. We bought 5 boxes and with shipping to the door, paid 154 instead of 374. Any other comparisons or information appreciated.

Subject: [LPG] Re: I need new prescription eye glasses

For an ophthalmologist, the best is YOUNG Dr. Miguel Lechuga in Fide Paz his office number: 124 0400 the receptionist answers for him as well as Dr. Diaz.
Dr. Lechuga is bi lingual, up to date and precise. He does the follow up care for the surgery I had done in Tijuana. He is also at his San Lucas offices on Mondays.
He is accurate at prescribing.
For frames and filling the prescription I use Optica Valdez on Altamirano e Rosales y Allende
125 6102
I too have been using the services of Dr Lechuga for years for glasses perscription.

Re: Cataract eye surgery and IOL (IntraOcular Lens) experience

I had this surgery four years ago here in La Paz. Perfect outcome.

Here's the info.:
Dr. Fausto Miguel Lechuga Ortiz
Central De Especialades Medicas
Calle Delfines No. 110
Fracc. Fidepaz (next to the hospital)
C.P. 23090
La Paz, B.C.S
(612) 124-1651
web: www.drlechuga.medem.com

He and his father are both in practice in La Paz. A really sweet guy... the follow up
was excellent... the prices were great compared to the US.

Best of luck,
Chris

Hi,
I am an ophthalmologist who does this surgery routinely.
In answer to your excellent questions:
I would look for state of the art surgery (which should be available) including phaco, foldable iol with small incision. Lens power calculations should be done with iolmaster to ensure desired post op refractive error. There also are premium iols(bifocal and astigmatism correcting) at extra cost. These are usually not needed but may be a consideration depending on the patient. The surgeon should be experienced. I would avoid itinerant surgery-that is someone who comes to La Paz periodically but is not there for followup. Ideally the followup should be done by the surgeon and not delegated. Complications can happen early or late and there is no assurance a given operation will be routine. The last thing you want is a complication and the surgeon is back in Ensenada.
I could find no information on Carlos Ibarra.
Dr Lechuga is a member of American Academy of Ophth and has had first rate training in retina. We have a mutual patient and I am very impressed with his work in retina.I don't know about his cataract training or volume. It would be a very favorable if your surgeon were a member of the American Academy of Ophth or ASCRS. This is true in the US also. Feel free to contact me if you have further questions.
