Medical question

by rjeubanks Online Now Mar 23, 2008 at 10:36 AM

It looks like I may have to have a PACEMAKER installed. I have IMSS (Mexican insurance) but it does not cover pacemakers except in an emergency. I have Medicare which does. I am planning on catching a bus to Laredo to use Medicare and need to know the name of a inexpensive hospital and doctor. Thank you for your help.

    You don't want an inexpensive doctor to do your pacemaker. You want someone who has done many of them before and is an expert in his field. Just my opinion. Look up cardiologists on the American Medical Association's website, and see if you can find a board-certified cardiologist in Laredo. I'm sure there are a few.
