Tempe group connects patients with surgeons across the border

Posted on November 1st, 2011 by

Heila Gibbs, a Gilbert resident, needed surgery after she tore tendons in her knee…Gibbs didn’t receive her care from an East Valley hospital. She didn’t receive this care in Arizona or even the United States. Instead, she traveled to Hermosillo, Mexico, with an international group based in Tempe called MedToGo International…Since Gibbs was going to be paying for her medical bills out of pocket, Dr. Page recommended his company as an alternative to American medical care. “If they (his patients) have insurance, I send them to the Mayo Clinic,” Dr. Page said. “We have great surgeons here in Phoenix.”
