Doctor Recommendations - Puerto Vallarta

Pam Thompson, Health Care Resources of Puerto Vallarta, Medical Advisor

If you feel uncomfortable calling to make your own doctor appointments, or have questions about referrals and procedures, I highly recommend you contact Pam. You can contact her directly and she will call and make appointments for you. She can often get you in to see doctors faster than you could get in yourself. Very friendly. A wonderful resource.
