Dr. Santiago Hernandez Medical Director and Owner of Chapala Med

Receiving his medical training in Mexico and in the U.S., no language or cultural barriers exist while patients are under his care in the Chapala Lakeside or in the event of hospitalization in Guadalajara. His years of training as a medical interpreter and four years in Family Medicine makes him exceptionally familiar with the standards of care in the U.S. healthcare system without losing sight of the care and compassion that has come to be recognized of the healthcare system in Mexico. Dr. Hernandez, being an EXPAT himself, has solid knowledge base, a keen sense and intuition of the needs and expectations of the AMERICAN and CANADIAN Expat community of Jalisco when it comes to their healthcare needs. These personal and professional assets have positioned Chapala Med as the GO-TO practice for EXPATS living in the Chapala Lakeside & Guadalajara.

Providing healthcare access to those who cannot afford it is one of the ways Dr. Hernandez gives back to the community. Currently Dr. Hernandez is an active member of the ROTARY CLUB of Ajijic and provides free healthcare to members of the TEPEHUA community in Chapala, Jalisco as well as to 105 students that are in the PATHWAYS SCHOOL SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM (part of OPERATION FEED).

QUALITY CARE Médicos Especialistas

The medical group “Médicos Especialistas” started in 2009 in a time when only family doctors and general practitioners were available to attend to the medical needs of a growing population. Our mission was to bring health care specialists in different areas of medicine to complete the void in medical care at the Chapala Riviera. Since then and after a few changes we have now come to form the unified group that QualityCare represents.

Our mission is to bring to the lakeside area the best in modern health care available, given by certified specialists, with an emphasis on the latest technology and evidence based medicine.

We look forward to hearing your comments as we continue to grow and better our services.
