Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - We are combining our July and August Newsletter in September we rest a bit! Of course we are always available for your healthcare needs but in September we take a little break from our clinics to prepare for the fall and winter. Please take your time, read through the entire newsletter at your leisure.

Speakers Programs/Activities
I will be adding a few of these over the next couple of months and I will post on Facebook mostly last minute. If you would like to be notified, please send me an email and I will add you to a list, as they are not going to be put into this newsletter.

For those preparing to return for the winter months, it is time to start looking for a traveler's insurance. We do not sell insurance but we do work with a few reps. If you would like some assistance/information please send an email. The same goes for full time insurance. We have a lot of information!

I am enjoying writing weekly articles for the PV Tribune. You can see these online every week! Have a look. Updated each week!

First Responder CPR Course
In August we will be offering a First Responder CPR Course and CPR Adult and Infant CPR Course. If you would like details and to sign up please send an email.

PLUS Membership
What is the PLUS program? It is a few "extra perks" for people BUT it is important to remember - one does NOT need to be a PLUS member to receive our services! Click HERE to see the chart.

What's New

We are excited about our NEW Urinary Incontinence Clinic! This is a very common condition affecting between 30 to 50% of women over the course of their lifetime! Pelvic organ prolapse is common in which a woman's pelvic organs are displaced from their normal position resulting in a vaginal bulge or a feeling of pelvic heaviness of fullness. The objective of our new clinic is to screen and assess the degree, identifying those patients that require further diagnostic or therapeutic procedures. Performed by bi-lingual urologist.

Our New Breast Imaging Center is opening within the next couple of weeks! This is with a state-of-the-art Digital Mammogram Machine with Tomosynthesis. Digital breast tomosynthesis differs from traditional mammography in the same way that a chest computed tomography differs from a traditional chest x-ray. Think about the difference between a ball and a circle. The ball is threedimensional and the circle is flat. We are thrilled to have this available in the area. And we are as always, thrilled to have this headed up by Dra. Claudia de Moral, our breast specialist. Watch for grand opening tours!
