    Awwww Come On !

    I enjoyed reading your post! For me personally I opted for Dr. Ortiz and have my surgery scheduled for next Wed. I can tell you that I have been sooooo impressed with the coordinator Carolyn. She is awesome and does not contract through a 3rd party, works only with OCC for Ortiz. She also has had surgery with him and was able to answer all questions easily.

    Coordinators in Mexico?

    I am scheduled for surgery next week but I feel pretty confident because once u make your appointment they give u every detail possible and help walk u thru what u will need to do and what to expect. I am going through Dr. Ortiz at the OCC. there are a lot of utubes if interested or have not chose a doctor. Oh yeah, my pain medications are in addition to the fee and was told to bring $125-$150 for them. Hope this helps.
