English speaking dermatologist

Can anyone recommend an english speaking dermatologist? I would be a cash patient, so it doesn't matter if they are an IESS doctor or not. I tried emailing 2 of the doctors at Monte Sinai, but have not received a response. Can you walk in to request an appointment? Thanks for any help!

Yes, you can walk in and request an appointment but first you need to find a clinic that has the doctors you need.

Yes, in fact it is preferred that you go directly to the hospital or clinic. DonĀ“t be too surprised if they can see you that day, so be prepared to wait or come back later.

While the docotr may speak English, staff may not so you will want a "cheat sheet" of words you might hear like nurse, doctor, left and right as you find your way to the correct examination room, that sort of thing. And if you have a friend who speaks Spanish and English, bring them along to feel a bit more secure.

Download Google's English to Spanish on your cell phone. It will allow you to communicate quite extensively.

Dr. Isabel Cardenas at Mt. Sinai is my favorite dermatologist in Cuenca and her English is very good.

Don't email her the first time - Go to Mt. Sinai Consultorios on the Third Floor - See the receptionist there to make an appointment at a time that is convenient for you.

The Receptionist acts as the Doctor's secretary.

You'll pay at that same station when you return for your appointment.
Bring ID (Cedula or Passport if you don't have a Cedula.)

I can highly recommend Isabel Cardenas at Mt. SINAI. I suggest going to the third floor to speak to her receptionist. Her English is superb. More importantly, her skills as a diagnostician and doctor are superb, as are her credentials. You can tell her Reginald Williams recommended her.
