Medical tourism Mexico, Mexicali

Post Posted: Mon Jan 11, 2016 10:01 pm

Hello everyone,

I'm living in Las Vegas and I;m suffering from morbid obesity. Diets and workout programs didn't give any visible results in 3 years. At all. As my insurance doesn't cover the surgery, I decided to contact Placidway, a medical tourism company because of quality and of course, prices.

Do you have some knowledges in medical travel or better, some experinces? If so, please share. Any advice is welcome. Or is someone in the same situation as I am? Please contact me to share things if so.

Did you have some experiences with Mexicali? I'm asking because the package includes 7 days hotel so I can visit a bit the city. And what's worth visiting in Mexicali or nearby?

Thank you a lot,
John

Just be careful! There are plenty of reputable options down there, but there are also folks that will cut you open and take your money without doing anything. Sorry I don't have a recommendation, but I've heard some stories that are horrible.
