We thought the dear Doc was very excellent.
Professional, concise, good equipment. Good manner.
Mother and baby doing well. He was even kind enough to
tell us it's a boy! Sadly, our US doctor seemed very
put out… as territorial as she is misinformed, so we're
using someone else who understands modern equipment
better. Let's hope our new U.S. Doctor is as up to date
as Dr Novales! I would strongly recommend both your
service and Dr Novales. Should we meet anyone who
needs assistance in Guatemala we would certainly
recommend your services.
-- Best regards, Edward B.
The next time I see you, I'll be able to hear you as
well. Dr. Pati was great as was her staff. We
were offered coffee and had to finish it during the
testing! Very prompt, especially as we were about
10 minutes late. I got exactly the hearing aids that I
needed. They work great and I love hearing again!
Thank you for helping me to locate her. Looking forward
to "hearing" you again soon.

I came to Guatemala Medical Travel with a need for some
diagnostic procedures. My experience with the physician
Lori recommended was excellent. From the introductory
consultation to the follow-up, Dr. Pasarrelli was a
excellent doctor, and the facilities he used were of the
best quality too. I was so impressed that I approached
Lori to see if I could help her build her business; so
here I am. This is truly one of the best health care

Hi Ann, Thanks so much for the heads up about tomorrow!
Looking forward to it. … Everything is healing
incredibly. The scarring at the incision sites is
really minimal, which just goes to show what an amazing
surgeon Dr. Galindo is.
-- Thanks, J
Last summer I was in terrible pain and needed a hip replacement. My orthopedist quoted $40,000 in Miami and I don’t have health insurance. My only choice was to live with it for five years until Medicare kicks in. Guatemala Medical Travel found me an excellent surgeon as well as cheap airline tickets. I paid for all the travel expenses, surgery, physical therapy and three weeks recovering at “Casa Muriel” without even maxing out my credit card. I’m so grateful to finally be pain free – I know I could never get this sort of care at home.

“It was such a relief to be able to discuss my medical
situation in German, my native language. I was much
more confident to know that communication was perfect
all during my diagnosis and treatment. I trust him
completely and everything was smooth.”
-- Inga, Rio Dulce
Thanks again for everything. I really appreciate your
help. It set my mind at ease to hear that I didn't need
surgery and that my situation wasn't as serious as I
thought it might have been. I didn't realize how much it
had been weighing on me. All the symptoms are
improving so far, I'm a lot more comfortable, and I am
following the doctor's advice. He was a sweetheart,
just like you said.

Our patients expect highly-qualified doctors, full-service hospitals and the low prices that we are used to in Central America. What absolutely astounds American patients in Guatemala is the level of personal service: compassion, respect and patience. In the Latin culture, you can expect “at your service” and “it’s my pleasure” to be absolutely sincere and all in a day’s work.
The ultra modern and newly appointed Centro Visual in Antigua is one of Guatemala’s premier full-service eye surgery centers. For macula or retina surgeries, or cataract procedures with the latest technology in lenses and instrumentation, we depend on Centro Visual to work hand-in-hand with Guatemala Medical Travel nurse-advocates offering the finest quality medical attention to our esteemed foreign clients.
In November 2013 Ms. Muriel Shea needed cataract surgery and chose to have state of the art triple-vision lenses. Considering co-pays, deductibles and other expenses in Florida, as well as the surgical skills and attention of both ophthalmologists, Muriel chose to have both cataract surgeries in Guatemala. She recovered perfectly, as expected, enjoyed celebrity-status VIP personal care, and she received a big insurance reimbursement check besides. Smart lady, my mother.

Drs. Dalia Gonzalez de Golcher and Jose Golcher did the most caring, loving surgery that anyone can imagine. The tone of voice, camaraderie and deep feelings of intuition that were shown to me were beyond my furthest expectations, much less imaginings. The female anesthesiologist and the female technician worked with each other like a beautiful symphony. The room was filled with loving feelings toward each other as well as to me. The attention to the details that are overlooked in the US made for an exquisite experience of being truly cared about as a person and not as a number. The husband - wife team showed deep respect for each other in their communication which gave me even more confidence in them. Lori Shea's level of professionalism mixed with her gift of being a care giver from the depths of her being, has made me want to shout about her from the rooftops. I feel that I now have quite a list of folks that are acquaintances now, in Guatemala, that are destined to be friends for the rest of my life.
