    We took our worker, Isadro, to Dr Domingo Taveras at Hospital Bournigal in Puerto Plata and he helped lots and prescribed good medication. Telephone number is 809 320 8343 and email is [email protected]

    Dr Taveras at the Bournigal is excellent, and speaks English if needed!

    Is Dr. Taveras a specialist or a general or family doctor?

    But the OP asked about a "spacialist" , isn't that only available at NASA????

    Sorry, couldn't resist...

    Great cardiac care at Clinica Corominas. Dr. José Perelló among others.
    Also at Centro Medico Cibao...

    It is just that they have more patients, ergo, more experience...more and most modern equipment, ergo better information = better diagnosis...

    Bournigal is okay for POP or perhaps in an emergency, and patient trust is often as good as a good doctor....but for important stuff it is either here in Santiago, CEDIMAT in Santo Domingo or MIAMI!!

    I do not know about Dr Taveras, but what I do know is that Clinica Bournigal usually is a big scam, especially in an emergency. Beware!

    That is a strong statement and certain to cause a lot of unease in the minds of those of us who live in Sosua/Cabarete/Puerto Plata who would be relying on treatment at Bournigal in an emergency.

    I think you need to explain.

    By scam are you speaking about the charges, the quality of emergency care, or both?

    If not Bournigal in an emergency, where. Santiago has better medical services but too far to go for immediate care in case of an emergency.
