I need to see a neumologist (lung doctor) since my asthma has gotten really bad. I don't mind driving into Guadalajara to see a doctor but need someone fairly soon.

One of the best in Guadalajara is
Dr.Rafael Rodriguez Blanco
Nucleo Medico Yaquis
Juan Palomar y Arias #658-c-1
Prados Provindencia Guadalajara
Guadalajara
33 3642 1083
33 3642 2396
He speaks English as he works in Texas as well

If you need an alergist
Dr Pablo Garcia Menchaca Av Mexico 3370
Plaza Bonita
Guadalajara
33 3812 2880

is also very good. I think he speaks English but I am not 100% sure as we spoke French.

Muchas gracias Dawg! I will be visiting him soon - I've recently had pneumonia and the asthma is out of control. It's the main reason I moved here - still much better than in NYC.

Thank you!

My husband has been waiting for an appointment with a Respirologist in the Greater Vancouver area since August. As a result of this thread, he placed one phone call to Dr. Blanco's office - asked to speak to the Dr. and the receptionist PUT HIM THROUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Try that with a Dr. in Canada. The good Dr. told him to call again in Feb. and he would be happy to see him. I am impressed.

I have an appointment on Wed. this week with him. I had two recommendations for him - Dawg on this board and someone else. You can't wait when you have lung problems. My local internist said one respiratory infection I had was so bad that he prescribed a self injection which I keep on hand. He said it was so bad that even though he lives near me an makes house calls he said he didn't think in a bad situation he could get to me in time to save me. Supposedly Dr. Blanco also works in Texas - probably speaks English. I've had pneumonia twice in two months and asthma so I'll post what I think of him after I see him.

please do. We'll be there in Feb. and will make an appointment then. Our so called "free" system here is a travesty.

I'm surprised, my Girlfriend goes back to Canada for all her medical treatment. She just had her thyroid removed a few months ago in Canada and she lives here half of the year. Isn't it getting cold up there!

It works unless you need an MRI, a specialist or surgery. The wait lists are brutal. Not cold at all - I'm in Vancouver and it's 10 C today.

Thank you Dawg for the information on Dr. Blanco. I went yesterday - still had a respiratory infection after two weeks of antibiotic shots (ouch). He said I had been given all the wrong medicines, including antibiotics (I had seen 3 different doctors trying to get it cleared up) and I now have new medicines to try. He said to call or email him any time and he would respond. He has asthma like me and when you get a bad attack it's a crisis, but most doctors don't realize that.

Thank you again - Good Dawg
