    Cant find the details of the one that wasn't very good (incorrect diagnosis and prescribed a product not available in Mexico).

    The good one is below. Young girl not long out of university but knows her stuff and gave perfect diagnosis. She also advised on which pharmacies to avoid (i.e those that gave kickbacks to the doctor and were more expensive for the same product). Consultancy fee was 500 pesos.

    I have an excellent doctor. His name is Dr. Cepeda. He was highly recommended and both my husband and I had things removed by him. He is a Plastic Surgeon but if he feels something doesn't look good, he sends it out for biopsy. He has a very gentle hand, and I barely have a scar. I am a nurse and I have a history of cancer and he made me feel very secure with everything. He has an English speaking assistant so it makes life a bit easier for English speaking people. He is located in the AmeriMed Hospital next to Plaza Las Americas. His phone number is 881-3400. He has my highest recommendations as well and he's the man I would go to if I had anything suspicious growing on my body!

    Of either doctor listed...do you guys know if they specialize in acne? For the entire 7 months that I've been down here, my skin has turned into that of a teenager. Enough is enough...I need medical help!!
