I'm assuming you're looking at the Spanish version of the page. I was looking at the English version (click the flag icon), and it just has a green check mark, but omitted the recert issue. Oversight or do they not want to scare off the yankee dollars.



Yeah ditto to what Nuovo said, when I click the link that Dr.Cardenas gave it's the spanish version and google automatically changes it to english for me (i use google chrome), anyway, Dr.P has the RED X and says "RECERTIFICACION NO VIGENTE" & "MEDICO CERTIFICADO" with a GREEN CHECK......but when I go to the site on internet explorer, it comes up in english and it only has the one GREEN CHECK and says "M.D. CERTIFICATE 2006-2011".......So unsure what this means and why, I'm sure we will get more info when offices are open.
In prep mode, weight loss and research for now

Hi ladies hope you all are well. I'm new here...and read your posts and read the post Dr. Cardenas. I also freaked out when I saw Dr. P Dr. F and Dr. G not recertified. They are all recertified, the problem with the page is you have to translate the page to English or Spanish (touch the American or Mexican flag) and then go again to the doctor's name and they will show that they are recertified. That releived me cause I haven't done surgery and wanted to make sure these docs were recertified...Hope I helped you gals ;)

I am sharing this information to hopefully ease some of your minds... I hope that we have all done our due diligence of researching certifications way prior to even scheduling with any doctor. I spoke with Genuine fri night her surgery was with Pantoja on the 29th and she is doing great. She said she did not take her laptop with her and will update the boards when she gets home. She was completely unaware of any of the recent issues about the Dr until i told her what was being said. It is business as usual in Pantojas office. I did however felt it was necessary to share my communication with Nadia for any of the ladies who are concerned. Also I just want to say to check Tijauana's local paper and news as this all has been aired as truth as well... and although I had found the press release I wanted to hear it straight from the horses mouth...



Hello _ :arrow: _____, thank you for asking me directly. Something fortunate out of all this, it's that it wasn't a Dr. Pantoja's patient. Mary was starting to take in patients from different doctor's like Campos, Fuentes, and other local doctors. That was a patient of 63 years old, with not the best health, she had complications 4 days after her surgery (not a plastic surgery obviously). Mary called the ambulance right away and the lady passed right in that moment. According to the forensic diagnose she had pulmonary embolism. If it was someone's fault, someone would've in jail right now, but Dr. Pantoja is here working and Mary too. Mary's landlord got pissed because all the ambulance and firefighters outside her house. That's why she had to leave the house inmediately. I wasn't authorize to provide details, but now that everything is out i will tell nothing but the truth.

For your peace of mind you can search in any local paper or internet, anything. Feel free to do so, we have nothing to hide.

Please don't twist the information you might read, our main concern here is our patient's health, as any previous patient is perfectly fine to tell you how we work here. You must be aware as well, that any kind of surgery has their own risks, bleeding, infection, blood clots, even death. That's why we perform all those tests before surgery. It's also really important for the patient to tell the truth about their health or drug use before getting into surgery.

Thanking you again...


Best Regards

Nadia

Nadia, if you are reading this, please post a link to the news report. Did this incident have anything to do with Dr P's family emergency? it seems like such a strange coincidence.
Thank you for responding.

I received the same email from Nadia yesterday and I believe this to be nothing but the truth I witnessed Dr Ps care and compassion first hand not just to myself but other patients; along with Marys and all the ladies who worked at the RH and I could imagine everything in there power where done to prevent that ladies death- the fact that she wasn't even DR Ps patient speaks volumes. Tradegies will happen regardless
Of all the attempts made by the PS and aftercare staff.

Despite not knwoing the facts some of u where ready to wipe out Dr P and Mary with no regards to how the speculation and negative things could break a people. Mary emailled me to and voiced how saddened she was and I truly felt for her death is bad enough but being blamed for it HELL NAH she is so good at her job trying to do the best for all who came to her I can not even imagine the ordeal this has been for her. Dr P and everyone else involved. I'm glad this is now public knowledge I was unsure whether to post it as my discusion with Nadia was connfidential hence my comment of the other thread to find out the info for yourselves and I was yet to receive an email whether it was OK to post the facts.

I hope the now puts some ppls minds at rest. I pray the family of the lady who passed finds some type of comfort. I hope Dr P, Mary her staff and everyone can reclaim there diginity hold their heads high and keep providing the best surgery and aftercare they always did

Ms. Nuovo. I did follow th english and spanish link. By no way do I ever want to take money out of anybody's pocket.But for what ever doctor is not safe will mess up the other doc money. Not Me . I stand corrected. he is not Recertified.

And just another thought. As a medical professional I don't forget to renew my licence.My licence is my bread and butter, I pay $80 every Dec. Im renewed. A medical licence is not the same as a drivers licence, eventhough a drunkdriver may kill someone and then can't renew their licence THEY STILL DRIVE. Lets just say " I forget to renew my licence, My boss comes to me and say "you are not to be on the unit, stop what u are doing and clock out" so the next day I pay and then no problem. What I'm trying to say is if it is small potatos .They will have the issue cleared up in a weeks time . Then ya'll can recheck, Repost and update us Girls. =D> =D>. Don't read to much into the post if not being Recertified is no big deal than no problem,no harm done. Contuniue on with ur process. 8)

Hello Ladies...Has anyone thought maybe the board hasn't been updated. That does occur. I'm not making excuses for Dr. Pantoja or Dr. Fuentes or any other doctors but maybe we should hear from the horse's mouth if/why they are not re-certified. It's nice that we are trying to keep each other updated and informed but before we cause undo worry/hysteria, at least give the doctor a chance to vindicate themselves before accusing them of any wrong doing.. I personally emailed Nadia and I will be doing more research to verify why Dr. Pantoja is not showing as being re-certified..

Take care ladies and make sure to do your own research before going to any particular doctor and not just on this board.

What London said, but I understand MNO's concern, it's easy to get emotional in here b/c so much is at stake but a good lesson to us all...always have ALL of the facts before making such intense statements about a doctor or anything else. Documents that are translated can have things lost in the translation, Internet sites can get weird in any language...

I have to say, though, it's been a weird week for TJ's RH's in general...another site that I'm on had weird things happen in their RH, quite different than what happened at Mary's, however, and not any of the RH's mentioned here, so nothing for anyone here to worry about, but seriously? Weird.

Yeah, PS is far from the only surgery performed in TJ (remember the woman who was at Mary's was there for a non-PS sx, according to the posted reports from Nadia) but maybe one of the most popular. That and WLS. Check out medicaltourism.com

I definitely wasn't talking about PSJourney's cuz it's so hit and miss...does anyone really run it anymore?

But yeah, Angie, (since we could all use a bit of humor right now) strange things are afoot in my little corner of TJ.

just wanted to say i checked dr pantojas credentials before i went to him and not only was he mexican board certified but he is also a member of ISAPS (International Society of PS) There are not many Mexican doctors with that certification because it is by invitation only From ISAPS to great doctors.

The way the first post was delivered came across as if he had never been certified before and was practicing plastic surgery based on science class dissection of frogs or something. If the focus is on the re-certification, then yes I agree he needs to get that updated. They do it every 5 years in Mexico so he's 6 months overdue.


Well my drivers license is expired so what shall I do?


Hopefully what I posted was not misunderstood................short and simple IF YOUR LICENSED TO DO SOMETHING AND IT REQUIRES RENEWAL FOR YOU TO KEEP DOING IT - RENEW IT OR LOSE THE PRIVILEDGE!! Now I have not forgotten how to drive because my license was not renewed on time but the fact is I am no longer able to do it legally until I do what is required of me.

As far as these docs go I really dont trust any of them as far as I can throw them and would not be too quick to go to bat for any of them. Everything that goes on is not posted on these boards..........you would be surprised what goes on, as a matter of fact maybe you wouldn't.
