ISO Travel Companions/Buddy for Mexico



Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone would be open to traveling together to Mexico for surgery together. I'm looking at OCC because of all of the positive research I've done on Dr. Ortiz and his facility. I'm in the process of getting finances in order but hoping to get the procedure sometime next year. Shooting for Summer or Fall. I would really love to have a traveling companion or friend to do this journey with, my husband will be staying home with our small child so I will be traveling alone and a bit nervous about that!

I could be intrested in doing that! I haven't really researched doctor ortiz. I was thinking about going with doctor Lopez. I wonder if they would cut us an even bigger discount if we agreed to share a hotel Room? Would you be willing to do that as well? I think this would be so much better than going at it alone. Just the idea makes me nervous.

Good luck you two! :D As I read the OP's post, I kept hearing this song: "My traveling companion is 9 years old, he is the child of my first marriage..." :D :460_circus_tent:

I'm planning go see Dr. Ortiz next year too! However I'm trying my best to make it work so I can go there mid-may. I'm really hoping it's not just wishful thinking....but we will see! Once I have a better idea I can leg you know, I'm heading there solo so it would be nice to have a travel buddy!

Hi [mention=333982]sunbrezer[/mention] - Where are you traveling from and what procedure are you having?

Hi
I am traveling out of Orlando Florida on March 8th and I am having the gastric sleeve procedure done. When are you having your procedure?

Have you checked our Dr Wizman, Dr Taggar and Dr shillingford? They're close to ft Lauderdale. I was going to go to the OCC in Mexico, but between flights, hotels extra days, etc, it was just a little more to see Dr Taggar in FL. I paid 8899, but I think it's slightly more now. I used insurance for preop testing, traveled on a Thursday, surgery on friday, discharged on Saturday. Stayed in a local hotel, had a follow up Monday, then drove home.

I would definitely do this too. I want to go in April the second week. Would anyone be interested in this? I have a consultation here but hate to spend that kind of money. I don't know how the process works for Mexico. Any adivce or help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
