Advantages of Going to Tijuana

tijuanaTijuana is a popular name in the world of medical tourism, mainly due to its proximity to the United States. Patients from Los Angeles or San Diego can simply drive across the border or take a short flight into Tijuana.

Other than location, Tijuana’s reputation as a major medical tourism destination has attracted some of the top medical practitioners in almost every imaginable medical field. Doctors from the US and other parts of Mexico have begun to establish their practices in Tijuana due to the large number of patients that flock to the city every year.

With more patients, it is only natural that the doctors gain more experience to advance in their field of expertise. Today, many of the Mexican doctors practicing in Tijuana are considered as some of the most experienced in the world. When searching for a specialist, wouldn’t you want to seek treatment from the most experienced doctors?
Seeking treatment from highly experienced medical practitioners is undoubtedly a good idea, but it’s only natural for a patient to be concerned about safety. How safe is Tijuana?

Despite of the negative image that Tijuana often receives in western media, it is home to over 30,000 Americans. The reasons is they view Tijuana as not only being safe, but also a place where they can have easy access to stunning beaches, great restaurants, and modern health care facilities. A similar setting in the United States would have very high costs of living. However, in Tijuana, the cost of living is much less so many can afford quality lifestyles.
So, if you’re concerned about your safety while in Tijuana, think about how many Americans are actually living here.

Patient Testimonials

Dick C., Las Vegas, NV.  Jan 30, 2015

My sister had a face lift done, and the result was absolutely amazing. In just two weeks she was looking good, and now, a couple of months later, she has dropped over 15 years in appearance. I know she will be looking better and better until the 6 months healing process is finished. We can’t wait until she is fully healed, but I am so excited, I just had to send a testimonial now, to let you know how she is doing. Dr. Arturo is the best!!! Thank you so much for you skill, as well as your kind attention!!!

22 Months ago I came to Tijuana for Gastric Sleeve surgery. Honestly, this was the best health decision I have ever made. My only regret is that I didn’t do it 5 years earlier. I have lost 135 pounds in that time, and am still losing weight, although more slowly now. My appearance is vastly different and improved. But more importantly, I feel so much better, and my health is good for the first time in years. I was so impressed with the quality of the care in Tijuana. My surgeon was extremely competent, and I have had absolutely no problems. The good folks at Samaritan are great, and took very good care of me! Several of my friends have also come down for procedures, and everyone has only good things to say.

I have tried every diet, and have lost major weight 4 times in the past 5 years, and each time, I gained it all back, plus!! I finally realized that dieting would never work for me, and when I learned about the gastric sleeve, I know it would be the answer, and so it has been. It has way easier than any diet I ever tried, I don’t feel deprived, and I don’t suffer, like I have with diets. It has been easy, and the pounds have just disappeared. So many of my friends have a weight problem, and I am trying to get them all to contact Samaritan.
