Can someone give me their personal experience with a Doctor in the Dominican Republic and a good recovery house? I'm considering Duran and possibly staying there since I keep getting mixed views on the RH's there. My girlfriend stayed at hh and hated it so I'm just thinking of staying at the clinic.

I agree, people act as though we don't have deaths in the U.S. resulting from surgery.

Yes, he's the best very professional 20 years of experience. I went to do the Braziilian butt lift and breast implants. Highly recommend him!

Yes. He is one of the best and very experience. I am going to have my surgery done by him on July 28 2014. TT Bbl and extensive lipo. What like about him is he is very direct. He does not beat around the bush. Bahamian dialect which means he don't play. He takes his job and your life seriously. They say he lacks bedside manners but I came to him for a procedure not to be his friend. What I like about him is he keeps up with the latest technology in plastic surgery and he has been doing this for a long time. Also his package includes the tropical recovery house. I got to speak to a patient today at the RCH and she said it is the place you want to be especially how a nurse is there 24 hours. I am more than comfortable now. I am ready.

Does Dr Hernandez do the surgery in a hospital? Is the place clean, sanitary and up to date?

I seen a company that will actually travel to DR with you and provide everything for you. S.Queens Travel Services, they will book a vacation home and all you have to do is bring yourself and clothes they will handle the rest.

My daughter recently 4 weeks ago went to Dr. Duran for Lipo back, arms, abdomen and sides and BBL. I am Critical Care Nurse and went with her. I was shocked with all the Americans at CIPLA. I was helping clients because nursing not the best but hands down ALL of Dr. Duran's clients were thrilled and looked fantastic. Other Doctors were hit and miss. I would bring a blanket day of surgery and dresses you just throw over head. Bring PAIN MEDICATION. Massages painful and that seemed to be consensus of all women. Use Arnica pills and bring Arnica cream. My daughter really liked who works at CIPLA and will go to your hotel .I am looking for card of gentleman who is bilingual and helpful with finding help and helping with errands. Definitely recommend a real nurse. If you are staying in a Recovery House you will have transportation to appointments. Conrado is driver and knows masseuses etc.

I saw dr Hernandez before and after and I was impressed. He would not perform TT, lipo and bbl on me if I don't stay in the country for 12 nights. He responded to my email very quickly. My concern is his work not so much his bedside manners. I have been trying for yily and duran but no response.

He is very good. I'm happy I went to dr Hernandez. Yes u have to stay for those 12 days.

Hi Teddie15. Have you check your spam & junk mail because Yily responded to me but it was in one of those folders now I'm scheduled for June.
  • Reply
Yes I did. She responded but I am going with dr Hernandez. I need extensive muscle repair and he uses the latest method. I had asked her but she didn't respond. But good luck and safe surgery.
