Client Testimonials

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 values going!

Client Testimonials

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.

-- Annie B., Key West, FL

“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.  

-- Ayana H., San Francisco


Communication is the key to success, particularly with respect to ensuring positive patient outcomes. You may be astounded to find that the doctor will give you his personal cell phone number and be available to respond to your concerns and questions as they arise. Rest assured that your doctor speaks fluent English to thoroughly explain treatments, alternatives and recovery instructions. We use only the most trusted pharmacies to be certain that prescribed pharmaceuticals and OTC medications are of the best quality. All telephone and email communications will be confirmed and compiled by your agent, and available for your inspection in one complete, easy-to-understand file.

Our Hospitals

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.

Client Testimonials

Victoria wrote this journal entry only a few hours after having cataract and macula surgery...

Dr. Dalia Gonzalez de Glocher with VictoriaDrs. 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.  

-- Victoria, Key West, Florida
