Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - It's Hot Hot Hot! Wherever you are, we hope you are having a wonderful summer. Here in Puerto Vallarta, we are doing a rain dance!
And, here at Healthcare Resources Puerto Vallarta, we are spending a good part of the summer planning and preparing for the fall and winter months. We will continue with our clinics (for the most part) but really concentrating on "next season" and planning ahead so that we can have a lot of new and exciting programs.
If you are not here, but are planning your return for the winter months, please feel free to contact us regarding any questions you might have regarding healthcare in the area, including travelers insurance, air evacuation policies, how healthcare works – anything and everything!

Most of the Lyme patients suffer from a variety of chronic health problems such as fatigue, headaches, OCD, anxiety, depression, memory loss, muscle & joint pain and cognitive dysfunction (some of the more common symptoms). Called "The New Great Imitator," Lyme Disease is often mistaken for illnesses such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis among others. If you or if you know someone who has visited numerous physicians without a proper diagnosis, you MIGHT have Chronic Lyme Disease. Testing is now available via our Lyme Disease Specialist here in Puerto Vallarta and for the months of July and August, we are offering a free Lyme Microscopy Test performed by our specialist!

How Does HealthCare Resources Work?
We have individual contracts with our physicians and hospitals. There is never a fee (referral fee, commission) charged to the patient. We are an INDEPENDENT company. We do have a membership program, called the PLUS program. One absolutely does not need to be a member to receive our services! But, there are some "perks" such as discounts at the clinics, we keep your medical record in detail, discounts on various diagnostic studies. Best described as this: We will hold your hand through health issues. PLUS members – we hold both hands! Email for information.
