David and I cannot say enough good things about the medical care in Guatemala. We’ve experienced a few health issues requiring treatment… and called GMT for guidance.
The MD’s here are extremely personable, well-educated and appreciatively, they spend time explaining diagnosis and treatment with the patient. Also, it’s the doctors who perform the testing such as EKG’s, ultrasounds [not nurses or techs]. Except for blood being drawn we’ve dealt entirely with the exceptional physicians. For example, we recently made a visit to the ER. The doctor was in the room with us for 45 minutes total (unlike the usual 2-3 minutes in the U.S.). A complete exam was performed, the cost was very reasonable, and most importantly the patient is cured!
