Dr. Casavantes Clinic in Tijuana

Question

I am planning a trip to see Dr. Casavantes in Mexico and my concern is the deposit required must be only in cash, travelers check, or bank check. This seems really risky to me, do you have any info that can reassure me that when I get there there will actually be a clinic and that my money won't have disappeared? thanks.

Answer

I understand your caution.

I did visit Dr. Casavantes in Tijuana and he is an excellent doctor. He does great work with PMMA and I would have no hesitation having him work on a member of my family. We discussed finances a bit and he said that the reason they have patients pre-pay is that otherwise someone could get treated, fly back home to their own country, stop payment on a check, and they would have no recourse.

I hope that this information helps and good luck!
