R.L. – California

I wanted to put this in writing so that others can benefit from the excellent service I received from Tina at Yucatan Companion.

Having first spoken to Tina from the States, it gave me the confidence to fly to Merida for a replacement of my left hip, as the savings having this operation done in Mexico were quite frankly, unbelievable. Upon arrival,

Tina went through with me again how everything was going to be very smooth, and that I did not have to concern myself with the logistics of it all.

Well, we went through all the pre-operative tests and examinations with my orthopaedic surgeon, (a wonderful, kind man I would like to add) at Star Medica hospital in Merida. This hospital is ultra-modern, spotlessly clean, and staffed by very kind, friendly and caring staff who make one feel totally at ease with every step.

The replacement hip was, and is, a complete success. I recuperated in the hotel directly opposite the hospital for two weeks and my surgeon made numerous visits to the hotel to see how I was doing! What a concept! I am now a very happy, and pain free man who has nothing but the highest praise for Tina, Yucatan Companion, Star Medica and all the wonderful people I met while in Merida.

I will be back. I was most impressed with what I saw of Merida, and understand from Tina that it makes a wonderful vacation destination with lots to see and do, and it is not as expensive as many vacations can be nowadays.
