Jane Hedkte - Hysterectomy Testimonial
Hysterectomy – In May of 2010 I had a hysterectomy and rectocele repair surgery at Hospital San Jose in Hermosillo, Mexico. I live on the Big Island of Hawaii, and being self-employed farmers, we had no medical insurance. The cost of such surgeries in Hawaii would have topped $60,000 dollars. (It cost me about 10% of that by going to Mexico) I looked for alternatives on the internet and discovered MedToGo in Tempe, Arizona.
Their service appealed to me because it was run by doctors. They had researched the best hospitals in Mexico, and the best surgeons. The application process was straight forward and efficient, they forwarded my preoperative information to Dr. Gonzalez in Mexico, and answered promptly any questions I had.
I traveled to Mexico and met with Dr. Gonzalez for a consultation on Monday, and in English, he told me what to expect and answered any questions. My two surgeries were done on Wednesday, back to back, which took about 4 hours. I had the procedures at Hospital San Jose in Hermosillo, a small private hospital. I had a clean, attractive private room with a large bathroom and a sitting area for visitors. It was very clean. The nursing staff were professional and caring, the food was delicious and healthy, a nutritionist visited me to ask what I wanted to eat. Though I spoke some Spanish there were English-speaking staff available to interpret if needed.
I had a post-operative consultation with Dr. Gonzalez where he answered all my questions and concerns. I found him to be very caring and personable, his knowledge of women’s health was extensive. He was an excellent surgeon, and recommended a follow-up bone density test and estrogen test be performed upon my return to Hawaii. I received all the surgical notes transcribed into English from the operations.
Upon my return to Arizona MedToGo was there for me to have my stitches removed and the incision area checked at their Page Family Clinic in Tempe. Since then, Dr. Robert Page has kept in touch with me regularly to see how my recovery is progressing. It has been two months since the hysterectomy and rectocele repair surgeries, and I am doing very well with no complications. I would recommend MedToGo, Dr. Gonzalez, and Hospital San Jose to anyone in my situation. I am so thankful to have had such a good experience.
