“…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,…” N.K.

“…this year, I decided to stop lying to myself about the need for knee replacement. I mean, how long can one say, I’m too young to need THAT? In my case, I could have had the surgery done anywhere, and in fact, I investigated surgeons in the US, Singapore and then here in Puerto Vallarta. I chose Dr. Max Greig based on his credentials and credibility. Dr Max made me feel the most comfortable, and was most willing to spend the time answering questions. Clearly, Dr. Max is focused on building relationships, not just cutting people up. His natural warmth and charisma contribute to a great bedside manner.”
