Sandy Beach Medical Center in Rocky Point, Mexico

Sandy Beach Medical Center

Proudly Announcing

“Sandy Beach Medical Services Plan”

I recently had time to visit with Dr. Gonzalez between bloody faces and broken arms to learn more about what he is doing. I marvel that we don’t lose more young people due to stupidity when driving quads and rhinos. It is a good thing I don’t get faint around blood or I would not have made it during our visit. Dr. Gonzalez always has a smile and you can recognize him by his cowboy boots. He is a very humble person and always has time for us. So with this I will begin my story.

Many of our readers ask about medical care and while I have touched on it quite a bit, this is something you should all know about. Under the very capable medical doctor and his staff, Dr. Jesus Gonzalez-Gaytan is announcing that the Sandy Beach Medical Center is open and will be “Your All-In-One Medical Services Health Care Destination”. It is in the same location as it has been on Sandy Beach, but now Dr. Gonzalez will have full control of the practice. For those of you who don’t know Dr. Gonzalez -Gaytan, he is an internist who has practiced for many years in the US and Mexico and is very well respected. It has always been a goal of his to provide affordable yet excellent health care and at last he has accomplished what he set out to do. Over the years he has personally taken care of me when one of my medications sent me into shock or when one of my allergies made my throat swell up and the care has been outstanding. He has an assistant there who is the only person I have ever received a shot from that it did not hurt.
If you are a full time resident here in Rocky Point or spend a lot of time here, you may want to join the program and it open is open to anyone.
The member benefits are in English and Spanish. Dr. Ron and Judy Ridgway will be the people you need to contact regarding signing up and answering all your questions. You can purchase the membership up front as a couple living in the same house for ($1,200 USD) or single person ($700 USD) cash or check, IVA included. There will also be a payment plan if needed , but the Ridgways’ can tell you more about that.
One of the main benefits is that now you will have a doctor in Puerto Peñasco who knows you and your medical history. You will be able to have unlimited office visits and expert medical care, but another important part is the skills of the staff to take care of you should there be an emergency. For people with heart issues, the fact that they will know your back ground, so that they may consult immediately with your US or Canadian doctor is so important. Once you join, you will get a copy of your records from you doctors in the US or Canada and they will be on file here.
You will also be covered for most lab work and X-rays. There will also be coverage for some injections and huge discounts from their pharmacy or participating pharmacies in Puerto Peñasco. You will have local transportation provided, should you become ill and it is determined you should not be driving to the clinic. There are so many things covered that you really need to contact the Ridgways’ today.
Please feel free to stop by and say hello to Dr. Gonzalez and his wife Miram and let them show you around. I know you will be impressed. It is located on Sandy Beach Road just before the left turn into the Sonoran SPA and SEA. You will recognize the 4 story white building with the green ambulance and desert rail in green for desert rescues.

Medical Care in Mexico

I am often asked about medical care in Mexico. Let me say it is probably the best I have had. What I love about it, is that I can call the doctor when I am sick and get in the same day and generally within a short time frame. Office visits are $300 pesos or so or about $22.00 USD. We have one of the best internal medicine doctors in Mexico, Dr. Jose Gonzales Gonzales here as well as any other specialist that one would need. In an emergency, and it is something that can not be taken care of here, you can be transported to the US border and picked up on the US side. The doctors offices are very up to date as is the hospital and if you need ex-rays or similar test they are modern also. Again prices are reasonable by US standards. I will confirm, but I am told that the Sandy Beach Emergency Center also takes VA insurance, but I have not been able to confirm with Dr. Gonzales.
Our dentists are some of the best, very well trained and reasonable. I can truly say I actually like to go to Dr. Yamamoto for dental work as his off office is so relaxing. He does not rush things and makes certain everything is healed before he goes on to the next step. Many people come here just for dental work.

Pharmacies abound through out town and all have reasonable prices, but our favorite is Santiago’s on Benito Juarez. If he does not have it in stock, you can usually get it the next day. Very good prices and English spoken very well. He always has a smile for you.
Many of our friends also get their vision checks, frames and lenses here at Botica Lux, again English spoken and very good prices and great service. Name brand frames as well as contacts. Next time you are here stop in to see them. I always carry my eye glass prescription with me as you never know if you might break something.
Please come down and check us out for all of your medical needs.
