This place lists several tests that they perform but many of them are done in Guadalajara. You are taken to their place.
Their prices are high. They do not take credit cards.
A mammogram is 800p. It can be gotten in many places for less.
The ultrasound is also high. I was told it would be just short of 6000P because it would be both legs and take two hours. It was two legs but took 45 minutes

Well, that's convenient, thanks for the heads-up.

Mammograms are 200 pesos at the Chapala Municipal Clinic, ultrasound there too but I don't know the price. Guaranteed, it's not 600 pesos!

I think that's the going rate for Maskaras Xrays too, don't remember what Cruz Roja charges. But the Xray I had at the Chapala Municipal Clinica was either 200 or 250. 350 is fair, I think.

Except! An Xray is only as good as who reads it. The Chapala Municipal Clinic imagings are all done by trained techs and read by a Radiologist.

Is there a Radiologist at the new imaging place in Interlago?

Quality Care has a radiologist that comes here. My liver ultrasound was 1000 pesos with films and written report given to me for my insurance company.

It seems miss leading when a medical facility has all these services listed they do on their big sign, but they don't do them on site. So when you walk in expecting to get a procedure done, they can't do it. It would be wonderful to have a diagnostic facility here where all procedures would be done on site. It would be a gold mine, but it would also be expensive to set up as the equipment is mucho pesos.

So, go to the new hospital in Chante or the new Chapala Municipal Clinic.

This thread reminds me when I had a MRI of my spine some 30 years ago in the states. I overheard the radiologist and the ortho discussing the MRI in the next room. It went like this: "Ortho: Wow this guy is all fkd up. We need to do some major surgery on him asap. Radiologist: Err ... you are looking at it upside down." Hmmmmmmmmmmmm,,,,,,(And that is why they call it a practice.)
