Jim Golbienko, a resident of Burbank, CA, availed the services of Medical Tourism Corporation to facilitate his knee surgery in Tij. This is what he and his wife, Kathy, have to say about their whole experience.

Jim – “…Though I did have my doubts about Mexico, about the medical care there, I was very surprised when I arrived… The cost of this operation in Mexico is about a third of what it would cost in the US. It’s been 3 months now and my knee is better.”

Kathy – “…But for Medical Tourism Corporation, I found it so easy to schedule the operation. Everything was as they said… And all this was organized by Medical Tourism Corporation. We were well taken care of.”
