Panama City, Panama (PressExposure) April 16, 2008 -- Punta Pacifica hospital in Panama City, Panama is offering excellent medical tourism services to its clients at unimaginably low rates. It specializes in cardio vascular treatments and stent replacements. Punta Pacifica hospital is an affiliate of John Hopkins center for Medicine and Angioplasty.
In November, 2007, a Canadian resident received a phone call that his father had suffered a heart attack while on holidays in Panama with his son and family. He was their only outreach in Canada that could coordinate care for old man. Their out of country insurance had denied coverage and so their help was futile. They were without a translator, telephone, transportation and completely out of their element. His father was in a small hospital without proper care, without access to much money. John Kelly, 86 years old was a Canadian Veteran trying to enjoy his senior years with family in Panama City. Paul Kelly, his son, spent a few nights on the streets in Panama as he was not allowed to stay with John in the temporary bed that was supplied for him.
He was stable but critical. They could not perform a Pacemaker operation or Angioplasty that was necessary. The quote to fly him home was over $32,000.00 U.S. funds and he may not even survive that. Family felt very helpless and confused. He searched the internet and sent a random email to a place he found miraculously called [http://www.nipandtuckpanama.com]. He immediately received an email from a wonderful man named George Adams.

The following is a Transcript of the service Nip and Tuck Panama provided for the grateful clients.
âHe was an English speaking Angel. He shone a light for my family when we felt the most vulnerable. We felt so lost and dismayed until we spoke to George. I cannot thank him enough. We successfully got my dad transferred to Punta Pacifica, an affiliate of John Hopkins Medical and an Angioplasty, and 2 stents were completed on November 19th, 2007 only 3 days later. George stayed with my father, directed where to stay, coordinated his care, his release and eventual flight home on the 26th. I cannot describe what it is like to be in a foreign country with an ill family member and not be able to speak the languageâ
Special Thanks goes out to the wonderful abilities of Dr. Diaz, Dr. Noriega, Dr. Rodriques and the Punta Pacifa Hospital Staff. John, Paul & Barb Kelly, Ontario,Canada.
