Referred to Elizabeth by a client/friend, I first met her when she came to my house to clean my teeth. The visit was excellent, and I was impressed that she makes house calls. I am such a busy man, running a business and working till dark on most jobs, it is hard for me to break away and get to an appointment in Santa Fe. Elizabeth not only makes house calls but works on the weekend which made it possible for me to get a much needed, overdue cleaning. Upon inspection of my gums and teeth, I expressed concern about some dental work I knew I was due, and we talked about Costa Rica.
Elizabeth has great connections in Costa Rica with quality dentists, doctors and surgeons. She has done her homework on these professionals and knows most of them personally. She helped me connect with an amazing Dentist/Oral Surgeon and I felt very confident in his skills. Within a few months, I was traveling to Costa Rica and meeting with the Oral Surgeon. His office was amazing and his staff super cool. Most of them spoke fluent English and were so nice.
My first trip to Costa Rica, I got implant posts and some crown work. Totally happy with the procedure and the cost, I decided to inquire about some other procedures for my next visit (when I was to get the crowns on my implants). On the second visit to Costa Rica, I ended up getting Lasik on my eyes, a dermatology visit and my crowns installed. With her knowledge of the country and the doctors there, Elizabeth helped with everything; from finding a great place to stay; both in the city and out at the beach. I would definitely recommend talking to her if you are in need of extensive dentistry or medical procedures and you would enjoy a great vacation as well. Felix H., Santa Fe
