The Coco Medical Clinic and Dental Center recently opened its newest facility just off the main road in Playas del Coco. It is a newly built, modern, beautiful, fully equipped medical center with the nicest bi-lingual staff ever! The center is headed by the husband and wife team of Dr. Hanzel Larios Campos and Dra.Daianna Morales Quiros. Their respective fields are general medicine and dentistry. Compassionate and dedicated are apt descriptors for them both. In addition, there is a comprehensive specialist staff of doctors and technical personnel. The center is a full service medical facility providing a calendar of the following services: Dentistry, Orthodontics, Dental Implants, General Medicine, Pediatrics, Dermatology, Urology, Lab Services, Nutrition Counseling, Ultrasound, Plastic Surgery, and Gynecology. Dr.Larios also staffs the local Emergency Medical Center providing ground and air ambulance care equipped with Advance Life Support for both adults and children.
The Valenciano Clinic is headed by Dr.Pablo Valenciano who specializes in internal medicine and family practice. Fully bi-lingual, having studied in Costa Rica and San Francisco, his bright and modern office is located just off the main road in Playas del Coco. Again, our local physician is characterized by compassion and commitment to patients. He is actually pretty amazing; performing everything from minor surgery to delivering babies!
A remarkable and reassuring fact of being the patient of these doctors is that you have access to them 24/7! Yes, I really am serious! We have each doctor’s personal cell number and we call them directly during business hours for non-emergency contacts and, if really needed, during non-business hours. The docs wouldn’t have it any other way!
These professionals provide excellent personal care for those of us who live here, but they also provide superb care for those who are visiting the area; guests either staying with local families or friends or staying in one of our hotels. There is a plethora of recommendations and testimonials for each one of these exceptional physicians. Yes, I agree, they really are amazing!
Costa Rica is one of the healthiest places on the earth! There are Blue Zones in this country where people consistently live to be over 100 year old! In general, Costa Rica has some of the best medical care in the world, and for only for a small percentage of the cost of North America. All in all, this is a pretty healthy place to be!
Are you convinced yet? Let me add one more enticement… come on down and I’ll share their cell numbers with you! Put them in your cell phone and you’ll be feeling better in no time!
