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.
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
On December 23rd, 2010 our wife/mother unfortunately got very sick on our Caribbean dream–trip.
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.
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.
I would like to sincerely thank the entire staff of Belize Medical Associates Hospital for taking such a good care of me during my recent stay.
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!
Dear Dr. Musa and Staff,
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.
