  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 one more comment: Animals!! Because rentals are in such demand, many owners will not allow even one pet. In many fracs , you cannot not have more than one or two. This does present a problem if you have pets.
  12. How and where can one donate ? I have a few things. The idea of the plastic cabinets is really a good one.
  13. I have had one eye done by a doctor not mentioned on this topic. There were big problems as air got into my retinal area and there were air cysts pressing on my retina. I was having trouble seeing but thought as some have said " oh it sometimes takes time" I went to Dra.Claudia who had me xrayed and found the lumpy retina. Off to the retinal specialist who injected something into my eye as well as an anti-inflammatory. I was told I was lucky to have come as if I didn't there would not be any progress with the effected eye. So healing and on to the right eye with Dra. C. All is coming along well.She cleaned the left lens which was dirty. I may have to wear a contact or reading glasses because of the left eye. While paying for the most expensive lens and still need contact or glasses is frustrating , I am so grateful I still have my sight and do not have to wear glasses all the time. BTW I still go for my glasses out of habit.
  14. Might I add drivers ( expats just as guilty as Mexicans of not using turn signals. Several times I would have let someone in if I knew what direction they wanted to go. Sometimes you can tell by the angle of the car , but many times not. So they try to creep up and you do not know if they want to do a U turn in front of you. If you let them in you block up all the traffic as the U turn person creeps out to see if there is any traffic going the other way. Even more serious was the person in front of us with no break lights in Guad. You know what traffic is like stop stop go go go stop. Saying I was a nervous wreck was an understatement. .
  15. We have ss and other needed money in an American bank. Then we write a check to Multiva for about 3 months of money we predict we will need. We have a savings ( investment account) . I believe it goes into the bank part and we have them release it to Banamex. This has been our method for years. Suddenly our check took 3 months to clear. Multiva could not account for this. This, however, caught us a bit short with a bunch of medical and repair bills.
  16. Please recommend on board or message a good cement person. I need some spots fixed but also a good size wall. Someone next door decided to build a huge wall and our side looks sloppy with globs of cement showing through bricks. Never mind what cement does to plants!!!
  17. Just sent money via Amazon Prime. Took all of 8 minutes!
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Does experienced caregiver mean you have done this often and do you have credentials or certification.? Do you have references? Are you bilingual, transportation?
  21. Just a little confused there is a Carla? Ana ? and Jessica Flores????
