One of Best Countries For Medical Tourists: Mexico– advantages
Mexican healthcare generally costs half or less what Americans pay staying at home. Same goes for prescription drugs.
Many doctors and dentists receive at least part of their training in the US. Similarly many US doctors have trained in Mexico, notably in Guadalajara. Many of them continue to go to America or Europe for on-going training. Most doctors speak at least some English, with many quite fluent.
Guadalajara has several first-rate hospitals. For serious medical conditions, you can get good-quality medical care, including:
– major surgery…even
– live-in, 24-hour care.
Costs are significantly lower in all specialty areas. They’re often 33% to 50% the cost of similar services north of the border.
