Traveling abroad for medical treatment can make a person feel somewhat nervous or uncomfortable. However, numerous patients have experienced first-hand how medical tourism in Mexico is a great way to receive medical care that meets or even exceeds US standards.
In addition, they have been able to receive such world-class treatments at affordable costs and with extraordinary financing plans at extremely low-interest rates if they choose a financing plan.
In fact, medical tourism is not new. Historians have found that for more than 3,000 years, people, such as in countries in Africa and China, sought to move to places with better infrastructure, medical professionals, or where recovery of their health was ensured.
However, this may imply paying large sums of money or traveling long distances even outside your country. Yet, thanks to all the advances in medicine, transportation, and technology, today, it is even easier and cheaper to receive specialized medical care through medical tourism.
Medical tourism is defined as the action of traveling with the purpose of receiving medical or aesthetic treatment outside one's country of origin. Generally, the countries that offer this service are fascinating tourist places to visit and at the same time have quality medical services.
In reality, an agency is in charge of matching patients with the medical elements necessary to satisfy a need. Be it, for example, an illness, specialized treatment, or plastic surgery. At Health & Wellness Bazaar, among the services that combine and create our top-rated medical tourism are:
The way medical tourism in Mexico works is very simple. You just have to contact us through our official website, and we will schedule a consultation with the specialist doctor you require. He will carry out the evaluations and the diagnosis through which he will define the best treatment for you.
If surgery is the next step, an assigned patient care coordinator will help you plan your medical tourism package. We organize everything necessary to ensure high-quality medical care for the patient on the agreed date for the surgery.
We manage the procedures, and we provide all essential details so that in each step of the process, you have the guidance and the necessary support of an entire team to receive the best possible medical care.
It has been shown that in recent decades more people seek care through medical tourism due to 5 unique advantages:
Quick medical attention
Unfortunately, the waiting time to see a specialist or schedule surgery can take several months in many countries. Thus, it generates expenses in medicines and constant discomfort, especially if it is a physical condition that has affected you for a short or a long time. Also, the paperwork that you must complete to receive care is exhausting and takes an exceedingly long time.
On the other hand, through medical tourism, once you contact us, all processes are streamlined so that you receive medical care quickly and safely.
Reliable specialists with the highest credentials
We all want to be in the best of hands when it comes to our health and appearance. And medical tourism Tijuana focuses on meeting high international standards and certifications for you to be treated by the best plastic surgeons, bariatric surgeons, and other specialists in Mexico. We carry out the necessary paperwork and process so that you receive care at accredited clinics and hospitals with state-of-the-art technology to provide excellent service.
In itself, the thought of having surgery can cause some stress and anxiety. However, the way medical tourism works make you not only think about the surgical process but it also prepares you emotionally and mentally so that you can have peace of mind and feel very safe. Being in an environment where you can enjoy comfort and beautiful sceneries makes your process an enriching experience.
Whether seeking medical or cosmetic treatment, some patients want complete privacy in these processes. And we do not only refer to people of public interest such as celebrities, politicians, business people, etc. Rather, people today generally prefer to have health care in a quiet and private setting. Therefore, medical tourism is an excellent option since we offer you a personalized private service, always respecting your wishes.
Another significant advantage of choosing medical tourism in Mexico is that you already know how much your entire treatment will cost you from the beginning. The only thing you will have to pay for is your flight, your meals and, why not, an extra gift that you want to give yourself. That fact will allow you to do good financial planning and be less stressed. It is an all-inclusive package, so you will no longer have to worry about anything else about your treatment as soon as you get off the plane.
WHAT MEDICAL TOURISM IN TIJUANA IS NOT
At Health & Wellness Bazaar, our clients are not casual tourists. Each one is an important patient that deserves special care. That is why we strive to offer you specialized medical care and create a comprehensive treatment plan. We understand that your health is the most important thing, and we focus all our efforts on the medical side so that you feel safe and can have a successful recovery.
We are not a travel agency either. In other words, we are not dedicated to getting flights, changing dates, or solving problems with airlines, nor do we organize excursions or an itinerary of places to visit. Rather, we manage everything necessary to connect those who require medical service with the best surgeons, hospitals, and hotels, in such a way that we facilitate the medical part related to your stay during your treatment.
Medical tourism, although it is an accessible service, is not a financing one. Most of our patients cover the cost of their surgery on their own, especially cosmetic surgeries, as their insurance is generally not willing to cover this expense. However, should you need it, we can put you in touch with one of the best financial companies we work with. For example, we partner with Citerra Finance, a medical finance company that can offer you incredible credit options.
