BECKY M. , PENNSYLVANIA
Hello to the wonderful doctors and nurses who saved my father’s life in Costa Rica, March 2013! It was a year ago that my dad, while on a volunteer trip in CR, was flown to CIMA hospital in San Jose in severe heart failure.
I was very happy with all the departments. The person who was my first contact was very pleasant and informative and all other contacts prior to my arrival (Angela Lara) was just as pleasant and accommodating.
Everything is on very good level, very professional and very positive attitude. I have to mention that food in cafeteria is very good.
Not being able to speak Spanish and in a different country is hard on anyone – Especially having surgery!
My entire experience was excellente – the entire staff (everyone) has been wonderful to my needs and in the communication aspect, very enjoyable.
Hysterectomy- Loved our doctor. Everyone was top-notch, professional, caring, available, and informative. I do not speak Spanish, but never felt like I didn’t understand what was going on. Enough people speak English that it was no problem.
My experience at CIMA hospital: very satisfied with everything. Yes, I would recommend a CIMA Hospital.
I would like to thank Angela Lara, she has been very helpful in making this a good and smooth experience. We appreciate all she has done!
Everyone from admitting, to nursing, to doctor have been very caring, warm, and professional. I am impressed by the thorough, advanced technology, treatments and the excellence of the hospital facility.
For all the departments, excellent service. I especially am grateful for Angela’s attention to every detail of my stay. She truly went above and beyond in her care of me and my mother.
Everyone I met was very helpful. The admissions process was very quick and efficient. Angela in particular was very helpful in explaining what was going to happen and when. All the tests were done very professionally and efficiently.
My experience was as a mother accompanying a grown daughter for elective bariatric surgery not covered by her US Insurance. I had done a great deal of research and my husband, who works in CR, personal inquiries about the surgery and the choice of CIMA Hospital before proposing the experience to my daughter.
I was very nervous about the procedure especially being performed in a foreign country. My fears soon vanished when, at the airport I was met by an English speaking representative of CIMA hospital. She was with me through every procedure, checking process and even during the surgery. But it was perhaps the post surgery care that was most impressive.
I felt very well taken care of. Angela, the coordinator was excellent, made herself available and guided me through the whole process. This was important especially because everything is new and unknown and because I don’t speak Spanish.
