July 31, 2019

An informational meeting to introduce the SETAC Wellness Center's New LGBTQ+ Primary Care Program will be held on Saturday, August 3, from 4:00-6:00 pm at Roberto's Restaurant on Basilio Badillo.

Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico - SETAC Wellness Center is proud to announce a new program to offer primary care services to LGBTQ+ temporary and permanent residents of Puerto Vallarta at our center in the Versalles neighborhood. With our medical doctor, Dr. Jorge Ruíz, who is also medical director at Servicios Médicos de la Bahía, we are now able to offer you:

• Primary care or family physician
• Referrals to any specialist
• Place to keep your permanent medical records
• Urgent-care house calls to your residence 24/7
• In-house pharmacy
• In-house laboratory

We also offer very competitive prices on medications and lab tests!

Via a new relationship established with independent insurance broker Emmanuel González, we can accept most U.S. and Canadian private medical insurance, although it's vital to verify your coverage in every individual case. Those who are already members of Lakeside Medical Group are completely able and welcome to use our new services.

On Saturday, August 3, from 4:00-6:00 pm, we will hold the first informational meeting where we will introduce this program and solicit your questions about your medical and insurance needs so that we can tailor the program to the specific necessities of LGBTQ+ international temporary and permanent residents in Puerto Vallarta.
