|Patient Testimonial - Connecticut|
Dear Dr. Cawich,
Allegra and I cannot begin to thank you for all the special care you afforded her during her brief stay at Belize Medical Associates. Your medical team – Yourself, Dr Sosa, Dr Flores and Dr Perez were wonderful and your nursing staff was especially gentle, caring, and attentive.
Allegra's flight back to Connecticut went well. Thank you for facilitating our arrival into Yale New Have Hospital. She was received and delivered directly to her room and the Doctors here were expecting her.
On Wednesday Allegra had a series of tests, a nerve conductor test which was inconclusive, and as you recommended a lumbar puncture which came back negative. Doctor Dicapua suggested that perhaps it was early in the progression of the disease for the tests to show positive results and indicated, as you had, that these were classic GBS symptoms.
Allegra continued to deteriorate through Friday. She was completely unable to use any of her limbs and the numbness had continued to progress into her pelvic areas and down through her arms and hands. She has been in a tremendous amount of pain, which is being controlled with pain killers. Her respiration is being monitored round the clock and so far seems to be holding strong even though her voice and swallowing have been affected.
On Friday, a second nerve conductor test was ordered and this time came back definitively positive. We understand that she may be here for a very long time and that her recooperation and rehabilitation will be long and are thankful to have had the best possible medical attention from the beginning.
Thank you again for making the right diagnosis from the start. Thank you to your team of Doctors and Nurses. We remain eternally grateful!
I will continue to keep you updated on Allegra's progress. I am confident we will be back in Belize in the future and know with all certainty, should we end up at Belize Medical Associates, we would be well cared for by Dr Cawich, one of the last Mayan Doctors!!! Kind Regards to you and the Whole team,
Tina And Allegra Staples

Dear Dr. Musa and Staff,
Hi Dr. Gough,
You saved our mom and we will be forever greatful for that. My mom said that she would one day like to come to Belize to see you in person and to also give her thanks and gratitude!
Greetings Dr. Cuellar,
On Monday I saw my regular doctor, she was very impressed with my care in Belize. I was told that I was okay and do not have to come back.
I am writing to express my heartfelt thanks for all the quality expertise and service received while in critical care at the Belize Medical Associates in May 2009.
Almost a year has passed since I was treated by you at your hospital in Belize. At the time I was on the Carnival Cruise Ship Glory and sent to your hospital with pneumonia.
