  1. I have encountered price differences and simply said I can get this for …..@ Farmacia Christina for …… I don't think that is haggling or disrespectful. I have also encountered in a store asking for a price on an item and a Mexican asked as well. I knew there was a difference. I just said she pays this? I pay that?? I got it for her price. It seems people get so provoked at buying things or restaurants. There is no reason at why a person cannot get their message across without being nasty. Often I get a pretty high price to wash my car. I say but this car is chico and drop down 5-10p. and laugh. They do too and I pay full price.
  2. I have as well, and I feel they know what they are doing. I had a prescription and it said take 3X for a week. The girl said know that will kill you and called the doctor who admitted the error. I was to take one ,,,once,
  3. It would help to know the day, it cannot be today since you posted this 30 min, ago and it is now almost 8pm
  4. Without knowing what these symptoms are, is it possible that they are not related to his heart. Ergo normal EKG. Another possibility is that the cause of the symptom isn't reflected in a simple EKG. My EkG is almost always normal but I have an abnormal heart beat that absolutely requires medication.
  5. As someone in the medical field, allergies to strong perfume can cause a very serious reaction. Many times the person cannot smell it. Like a smoker often cannot smell cigarettes until they stop smoking
  6. Dogs may be well groomed but to have a dog where I am eating, I find it disrespectful. Blind guide dogs the exception, But someone brought into the restaurant two large shepherds. It was fortunate I was about to leave soon, when the dogs shook themselves, hair everywhere. So the dogs do not necessarily have to be at another table. Who wants dog hair in their salad?.
  7. I had to have 6 caps done by DRA Candy and all had to be redone. One even fell out.  I ended up going back to DR. Harro. It was more expensive but they are fine and look better.  Also Dental express....depends on who you see. I have heard stories about how great this one is and how horrible another. I did go there once and not too impressed with the cleaning.

  8. I have a very good Mexican friend who has a son with scoliosis. They are trying to avoid surgery and swimming has seemed to be quite helpful. Mom holds 3 jobs because dad left. She has another child as well. It is painful for the young boy to sleep on his current mattress which is old. Can anyone suggest type, brand, price, and where she might find an appropriate twin mattress for someone with scoliosis. I plan to pay for it.
  9. This is a question from a male friend. He has been going to doctors about spinal disc problems. Dr. A suggested sedation and injection of cortisone to reduce inflammation. If that doesn't work have spaces put in. Dr.B was recommended and someone told him to go see Dr. B @maskaras and get a special gel injected into space. Anyone have any of these treatments or different ones that might help spinal disc compression?
  10. Yes, lets build and build! and make money! The boomers are coming and more Mexicans come on the weekends. AND let us forget about infrastructure such as water, sewage , even traffic lights that are not replaced until there is a horrible accident. The streets have double basketball pot holes. You may not see them because they are not on luxury lane. The trip from Chapala to the west end takes forever. Figure out how long it is from La Christina to Hildago and then see how much time it takes to travel it.. So, am I in favor of building and more building? No, not without guareented changes to accommodate more building. After you made your investment money, did you ever go back and if the area could actually support it? People buy here and then learn about places where water has to be delivered. Even better the 4 way at Pronza restaurant had one functioning traffic light for how many weeks??? People have different definitions when they call this place paradise, weather usually being number one. But I don't think to many will say I can buy or rent a luxury place to live.
  11. Just sent money via Amazon Prime. Took all of 8 minutes!
  12. It isn't Wed thru Sat, It is Wednesday and Saturday. She is very busy so expect to wait a month or more for appointment unless it is an emergency.
  13. She is not a retinologist but realized my problem involving a mishap with a cataract surgery performed by someone else. She sent me to a Doctor Silva in Guad. He treated the retina and it is much better now.
  14. I do not recommend the ENT dr. at all

  15. I do not recommend the ENT doctor at all

  16. Glad it went well for you. I have regained some not all vision in the eye that was operated on by another eye doctor.  Just back from states and cannot  wait until I get the other eye done by Dr, C

  17. There are for profit and nonprofit to help support various charities. I am identifying the ones that support education, disabilities, poor communities and art for children. There are 2 bazars in Riberas del pilar across fro 7-11 , One is NCA which use money for paying sponsorships for children's education (consignment 20-25%) Casa Nuevo thrift and consignment store .Tepehua Treasures 98 Hildago and consignment Que Ganga ! Carr.Chapala -Joco #976 La Canacinta. Next to Anchor restaurant La Canacinta Not a consignment.
  18. You can try Lidia Zamudio Cerda She is a nurse who runs a supply store. #76 766 2088. My experience is that it sometimes is hard to get her because she also runs a home nursing service. lidiazamudio@yahoo.com.mx If you go on Amazon Mexico, they have hollister products.
  19. I think everyone was has hit on all the critical things to consider. One contractor seemed to be well recommended.

    Stay away from Steve Warwick  and Rudy who "contracts" but main business is tile, granite  etc.. Details if you want, but I do think you have a lot more than we did. So many things had to be "redone" 

  20. Received your message but does that mean you want the chair?    Don't want it?  Don't want to make a donation?

    I am fine with whatever you decide.  It wasn't clear to me what you were saying.


  21. Just a warning! if you come across anyone who claims to have solved the problem...be careful. We were told this new procedure was the best. Little holes were drilled all along the wall. Then some gunk was put into the holes,ostensibly to form a barrier. Within 6 mos....all places affected again. oh yes, they painted the inside of the house with outside paint.
  22. Just a note about private care. I am very familiar with assisted living and full care here. Nurse assistants are hesitant to work at nursing homes if they think the pay is too low, but some need that experience to find agency work. The biggest problem with home care is that it isn't steady. People get better, leave the country, go into a nursing care facility or pass away so they don't have work unless someone recommends them or they hear of a need. Often the care giver will have to work a second job. The lucky ones get to work for an agency such as Lydia's.
  23. Harry, Having direct contact is good advice. But many people don't know a "real" licensed nurse from a nurse.
