Once the patient books with their deposit, we immediately introduce them to Betty Corona, our Head Concierge who starts working in their itinerary, from flights, to appointments for bloodwork tests, cardio, pre-op consultation with the Dr.

Private transportation picks them up at the airport and takes them to the hotel to start the journey as per itinerary.  Operations takes care of all the ground transfers and also take them to the supermarket to get some food for the next days.

On the day of the surgery they pick the patient up at the hotel and take her to the hospital and our nurse stays on-duty that night to take care of any needs, and also to help with the language barrier. Later on, a daily visit is performed by our nurse to the hotel, and our concierge is on call 24/7 for any emergency or anything they may need.

Post op consultations with the Dr are included as well, for a perfect full recovery, and once they are discharged to go home, private transportation takes them to the airport.

Then we follow up for the next 3 months that everything goes fine, and let them know that we are available at all times for anything they may need.
