Doctor nowhere to be found when needed. - Dominican Republic, DO

Hi there!

First of all,

I haven't had the procedure yet but I just want to share my experience so far with the community.

I've been out of the country recently visiting a relative and I left my phone with my mother, as I thought I wouldn't have any issues with my Dr.

I plan to go with Dr.Molina, but I am truly disliking the lack of communication between the doctor and the patient. He replies once a day or twice if you get lucky on whatsapp, but rarely responds on email, does not call when he says he will, does not check his email when he says he will, and when I sent his assistant a few emails, to ask him, his assistant tells me that I should just contact him instead for information.

Yeah, really. That was her response. He may have all the answers but I haven't been able to get them unless I chase him at times to reply to it!

Isn't part of being an assistant, this is part of the work?

I am very disappointed so far and am considering changing my doctor to a better one. I don't feel anyone should have to CHASE their doctor to get things done.

I love his results but this is too much.

It is a long way to travel to get this done and I feel like once I get there something will happen, like they didn't receive my deposit, or he can't remember, or he doesn't follow up, something that will ruin my plans and trip and I will be left with nothing. Or If something happens during surgery that the doctor will be nowhere to be found.

The doctor is already showing unreliability and neither he nor his wife reply to their emails.

He also said he would send us emails about the recovery houses and tests needed to be done for surgery but none of that happened.

I have started inquiring other doctors for the price of the procedure.

The doctor is nice and I did talk to him on the phone months ago but I am not impressed with the follow up so far. I am going to be sending him money and he seems so disorganized and unreliable.

Rarely replies in detail about anything either, sometimes have to be asked more than once to respond to it.

Is this normal practice there in the D.R or just Dr.Molina, I would really like to know.

Feeling discouraged and almost want to just stop the process.
Even though this is my dream.:(

This is just my experience

A lot have doll have come on my page to tell me that hasn't been their experience with Dr.Molina but this has been my experience with him. I am not going with the doctor for the reasons listed above. His wife has never replied to the email he gave us to ask her about the recovery house as his English is poor, that was over 2 months ago. His assistant didn't want to help forward information I asked him after he didn't look at his emails. He would give me the list of things to get done tests, etc but that never happened, told me he would phone me the next day by a certain time, I had to ask him. Asked him for his payment information, never gave it for whatever reason.

I am kind of just done with the situation in the DR because of this.

I would go to Yily or Contreras ( if they hadn't have had issues) because they replied in better detail and more official than Molina did. Nothing was in writing or detail with Molina and nothing that was said that was going to be done was done.

I was ready to pay him the full 100% 7000 GRAND.

I am supportive of all the dolls journeys but please do not discount others journey because it is different from your own.

Thanks dolls and take care

So with the doctor commenting on my review and sending a message. It doesn't change anything

I've emailed and phoned too many doctors, including the well-known Dr.Revis and even with his heavy clientele i had no issues getting the answers I needed. He replied within an hour and his assistant within the same day. Dr.Pantoja was the same way. 100% professional.

I had my surgery yesterday Dr. Pantoja ( wrote a review waiting for it to be uploaded) and the review speak for itself, so professional and was easy to contact and get a hold of. Very very very happy about my decision, so good in fact im even thinking about what to do next with the doctor. The staff was incredible and went the extra mile.

Dr.Molina still wont take fault for him not answering or replying in detail ( in his message he asked if it was his mistake) and it just shows you that doctors will even pretend they didn't get your email or its not working but yet others commented on here they were in contact with him. No need to lie if the facts speak for themselves.

My shape looks AMAZING and ill be posting my Pantoja doll pics to show you how amazing it looks already. Dr.P is the best doctor ive ever had the pleasure of meeting and the staff as well too. More like family then trying to get my money. They took great care of me. And gave me what I want :) A great new body!

Cant say the same for Dr.Molina, but best of luck to all the dolls who went with him.
Hope it all works out for you.

No one should have to wait months to get a response from a doctor or chase them. Ready to send him the full amount of the procedure and couldn't even get the details to send it! Assistant was not helpful or professional and his wife (who he told us to contact) has never emailed back after 2 months. If you ask him something, he probably won't do it unless you ask him x3 times. Very much a concern when a doctor is so unable to be reached BEFORE the procedure but what about afterwards if something goes wrong? I'd steer clear for these reasons. Updated* : It is a complete and utter turn off that this doctor wants to blame patients for "never being satisfied" for things he should have done more professionally. Shame. I am very glad I did not pick him as my doctor.
