Will I need to travel to see a specialist?

Answer this Question

When we asked members in Tijuana if they typically need to travel to see specialists, they replied...

"Yes, there are a good number of medical specialists in Tijuana. With thousands of doctors and dozens of state-certified specialty clinics, Tijuana has become a haven for medical tourists seeking low-cost, expert medical care. Highly specialized medical care is available through specialized centers, such as the American-backed Center for Digestive Health at San Javier Hospital or the Bariatric Center of Tijuana. These centers offer world-class medical services in the fields of bariatrics, gastroenterology, and general surgery. Additionally, the Mexican Council for Gastroenterology and the Center for Advanced Medical Investigations, located in Tijuana, provides both high tech diagnostics and innovative therapies," said another in Tijuana, Mexico.

"The bulk of people I have met getting medical care in Tijuana live in the US and travel to receive their care. Tijuana, as a large border town is easy to get to and has many Doctors and dentists. People don't generally care to be evacuated to go to a country with worse care. I no longer go there now that my major dental issue is over, and now that I have moved to a more distant place," explained one expat who made the move to Tijuana, Mexico.
