Patient Advocacy

 

Patient Advocacy

Deborah Bickel, Sue Leonard, and Dr. Emilio Ramirez have decades of combined clinical experience and medical training that are put to use on your behalf. We don’t just provide information, we help you understand your important health and wellness options.

In the event of an illness or injury, finding an English-speaking physician may not be enough. While many physicians in the area do speak English, few are completely fluent and even fewer have an English speaking staff. We bring to our practice both fluency in Spanish, English and a professional understanding of both US and Mexican medical services, which can dramatically improve the quality of care you receive in Mexico.

It is important to note that medical practices can vary greatly from one country to another, and at times the medical culture of Mexico will be quite different than in the US or Canada. An example of this is that private practice physicians in Mexico are not required to keep patient records beyond the patient’s name and day of the visit. Having a fluent and medically capable advocate at such times will be critical to your continuity of care and your peace of mind. As with any visit to a physician or other health practitioner the right outcome will depend upon clear communication and understanding between patient and practitioner.

A short phone call will help us identify what your needs may be and is usually followed by an hour-long appointment to orient you to medicine, health and well-being in San Miguel de Allende.
