“I was immediately impressed with Dr. Max Greig, my surgeon in PV, Mexico. His training in Guadalajara as well as Germany and his dual citizenship with the US and Mexico all relieved me of all pre-surgery anxiety.”
Total Hip Replacement “The hospital was spotless, the staff was professional and very helpful and don’t worry, English is spoken by many. My surgery went without a hitch… Dr. Max and his professional and caring staff made my hip surgery the best decision I could have ever made…”
“…Buenos Dias Dr. Max, It has been 9 months since you performed surgery on my right shoulder for supraspinatus tendon tear and removal of spur. I am very happy to tell you what a difference the surgery made to my lifestyle. Since the surgery I have been able to sleep through the night. This was a big bonus as I lacked sleep for many years prior to seeing you. Also I am able to do many house chores and have started using weights to build my muscles. In addition, I have been walking without pain ever since you injected the cocktail into my ichmus tendon. I am also using weights to increase strength and muscle tone to my legs. I can only speak of you in the highest regard for helping me get my life back. You are very dear to my heart and I am very grateful for all you have done for me. Hopefully we will meet again soon. Big hugs to you,…”

“I have had two total knees with Dr. Max and cannot sign his praises loudly enough. My experiences in the hospital where without a glitch, I loved my nurses and recovered 100%.”
