Chapala Med is NOT a group of doctors sharing office space.
Rather, it is a team of doctors and staff working in harmony and under the leadership of Dr. Santiago Hernández.
Our team of doctors communicate through various means of technology and our electronic medical records system that is U.S. based.
Your medical chart and records follow you to any hospital or healthcare provider in Mexico, the U.S., or Canada.

From my first appointment with Dr. Santiago Hernández in May 2015, my experience has been positive, productive, and professional. Office visits always are on time, unhurried, and include back-and forth dialogue. Dr. Hernandez listens to my input.
Few are the times I have visited a doctor’s office that my appointment time was kept. Fewer are the times that I did not get the feeling I was being rushed. I did not ever experience those conditions with Dr. Hernández. His demeanour and professionalism overwhelmed me.
