Tanya J - Hysterectomy, Tummy Tuck, Liposuction Testimonial

» return to Testimonials

Hello, My name is Tanya J., and I am from Indiana. I was a patient of both Dr. Jorge Preciado and Dr. Allan Ceballos. What a great experience! Both doctors worked very well together, performing a hysterectomy, tummy tuck, and large-area liposuction surgery on me on May 8, 2013.

I learned about MedToGo International back in January 2013 when I decided that I needed the hysterectomy and didn’t want to go bankrupt to have the surgery in the states. Without insurance, I was told by a U.S hospital that I needed to give a check for $20,000 up front in order to be scheduled for a hysterectomy surgery date, however, the surgery could still cost up to another $7,000.00 (I paid around 12$ for all three procedures vs $27,000 just for the hysterectomy). That’s when I remembered a broadcast on 60 minutes on how Americans & Canadians were going International to have surgeries for a fraction of the cost. After learning about their website and services, I was impressed by the Time magazine and investigative journalist who researched the company as well after reading other former patient testimonials. As a result, I contacted Dr. Robert Page and he sent me an email immediately informing me that his son Robert would be in touch to help me through the process. I felt confident in knowing that MedToGo’s practice is managed by doctors, that the doctors are board certified, as Robert gives you all of the doctors credentials up front so that you can make an informed decision. Also, considering that I have owned property in Mexico for the past 12 years, and travel there twice annually, there was no concern about going for surgery. Many people view Mexico as a third world country, which is not the case with me because I know from experience that they have many modern conveniences and is quite safe in major cities.

Prior to going I was able to speak with my doctors who were very kind, & supportive in answering all of my “many” questions. The day before surgery, Alfred, the medical liaison picked both my mother and I up & took us to a personal consult with the doctors who both spoke English quite well. CMQ Hospital in Puerto Vallarta was where the surgery was performed, it was very clean, the staff was nice and the surgeries were very successful. Both doctors were there after my recovery and visited the day after again, to be sure I was doing well before being released to my hotel. During the extra week I stayed, both doctors followed-up with me often, as well personally replied to my emailed questions once I got back to the states. That was above and beyond what I would have received at home. I would recommend anyone who has reservations about medical tourism to let MedToGo assist you to gaining a better quality of life. I am so pleased that the practice was very thorough in providing me with access to knowledgeable and experienced doctors. In fact, my fiancé is going to make the trip at the end of the year for a cosmetic procedure. To Robert, the entire MedToGo team, and Dr’s Preciado and Ceballos thank you for giving me my life back.

My name is Laura Read. I had a hysterectomy in Hermosillo, Mexico in August of 2011 with Dr. Jose Gonzalez. So my doctor, my OB here in the states let me know that I needed a hysterectomy. Unfortunately I don’t have insurance and to have that surgery here in the states, just to walk into the hospital I needed $20,000, which I did not have.

I did a lot of research, and my brother had had surgery in Mexico a couple years prior.
