    I doubt you nor I would qualify any more, with the latest Con-Dem cut backs. Something Cameron 'conveniently forgot' to mention before the election:

    Steve, which FMU (Family Medical Unit) are you assigned to with IMSS? Tell me, and I'll go talk with them to see if I can learn more about how to access this.

    And additionally, dr. M is also one of the 4 obgyns that can practice medicine in Europe and the states. That and his level of English proficiency make me feel much more comfortable.

    Before we found him, we were ready to go back to Chicago to have the baby.

    Yes, "best" is subjective. I personally did NOT like Medellin, he made me very uncomfortable and I found him to be cold and rude. He barely looked at me while we were speaking, his "bed-side manner" was definitely lacking on my visit. He had asked me to come back for a follow-up but I couldn't bring myself to go. Everyone has different expectations and needs and experiences, you have to judge for yourself.

    I'm sorry to hear about your experience with Dr. M. I'm not sure whether your visit was for gyn or ob services but I found him to be very excited about my pregnancy. This could be because he has delivered 5 of my nephews, all naturally except one.

    Maybe he was having a bad day. :) I had gone to him for a second opinion after another doc told me I would need a hysterectomy and wanted to schedule surgery, without so much as an ultrasound, simply on taking a history! His brusque behaviour really turned me off, I swear he stared at his computer screen and sent texts while I was telling him my story. Not even a smile or word of reassurance. :S Glad he's working for you, other friends loved him which is why I went to him in the first place.

    How do you mean assigned? AFAIK we're not assigned anywhere.

    Jannet has visited 3 different places - IMSS Avenida Tulum, Centro Salud Region 222 and Centro Salud Region 110

    Wow CC, that must have been a pretty scary time for you. My aunt just went through that same thing. After second and third opinions she got the surgery and ended up being completely happy with it. Being only 50, she claims to have skipped menopause and brags about how low her chances are of getting certain cancers.

    I hope all turned out well for you.

    Have you and your family completed the enrollment process? At the end of this process, the family is assigned to a primary care facility, Unidad de Medicina Familiar (FMU, hereafter), and that is done according to what part of town you live in. You are then supposed to report there for primary care, and for Referrals for specialist treatment, if needed: that is also where they will do immunizations.

    At the conclusion of the enrollment process, you will be given a "Carnet," and go through a preliminary check of your health, have routine immunizations, and be given an appt for your first doctor's visit. (The Carnet is the booklet in which your appts and other details are kept for each patient: you present it each time you go to make an appt or receive treatment. On the "photo" page, it shows which FMU you've been assigned to.)
