Cost of doctor office visits in Lake Chapala

I am seeing disparity in the charges mentioned in online info here and what we pay to see a doctor in Ajijic/Lake Chapala area if you are "paying as you go" as we are. Can anyone share the name of their doctor and what his/her office visit fees are, please?

The Ajijic Clinic (hospital) charges 250 pesos for a consult. It might be 300 now? I have not been back this year but could look in tomorrow and see.

We live nowhere near Chapala - so take this for what it is worth. We live in a relatively pricey part of Mexico.

6 days a week, 8 hours a day I can go to my local pharmacy and pay 50 pesos for a consultation. I do that for things like insect bites, rashes etc.

24 hours a day 7 days a week I can go to the local Red Cross clinic and pay 100 pesos, plus the cost of whatever materials they need to mend me. Services are top notch and the facilities are cleaner than most emergency rooms you will find in the States.

If I want to see a specialist the price has a wide range, any wheres from 400 to perhaps 700 pesos. A recent ophthalmologist charged 700 pesos for a 10 minute appt.

Really - a down vote ? I don't know much about this Chapala area but as I understand it they are always going at each other - so I'll just attribute it to that.

Like Yellowtail I too am in an expensive place . . .Tlalpan, the hospital zone because my wife is a cancer doctor here. She tells me the 40 peso visit to the pharmacy and the 38 peso visit to the Walmart doctor is so cheap because those docs could not pass the exam to become resident physicians.

I would agree that I wouldn't go to the local pharmacy clinic for something life-threatening - but it is very convenient if I already know what sort of drug I want a prescription for.

To be honest - there really isn't much difference between 50 or 100 pesos (which the Red Cross Clinic costs). I have found the Red Cross staff to be top-notch - certainly as good or better than many primary care physicians I had in the States.
