How We Began: Compelling Personal Experience

How We Began: Compelling Personal Experience

It all started with a personal experience from MMT founder, Ruby Madrigal.  Ruby is a successful small business owner based in the U.S. and has been coming to Mérida for years to spend time with family and take advantage of the low cost clinics in Mexico.

During a routine doctor visit that turned into a need for significant surgery Ruby became the first MMT client.  After investigating options in the U.S. and in Mérida she chose to go to Mexico for her medical treatment.  That experience surpassed her expectations in many important ways.  She was impressed with her quality medical specialist, amazed at the affordable health care options and very happy with the final results.  She wanted others to know they had more options than expensive healthcare procedures in the US or to delay care that would further jeopardize their health.

This personal experience inspired her to share her story with others in the U.S. and from those conversations she began to develop a service offering quality medical tourism in Mexico though facilitators who help others receive access to low cost health clinics providing quality medical services. Specifically Mérida, a city she knows intimately, where she has family and rental property in nearby Progreso.
