Good medical care is available from several locations on the island including the Clinca San Miguel and the CMC. For maintenance care and general practice — from cuts and broken bones to stabilization after a heart attack — Cozumel gets high marks.
Doctors and nurses are never in a hurry. They are very compassionate and caring. And then have all the modern meds and techniques. Prices are lower than in the US and many US an Canadian insurance companies will now cover care here.
Dental work is a real bargain on Cozumel. There are a number of excellent dentists charging half or less than what you would pay outside the country for something like a crown or a root canal. For complicated or specialized surgery most locals make the short air trips to either Cancun (20 minutes by plane) or Merida (60 minutes by plane) where world-class doctors and facilities are available to effectively treat anything you can name and at relative bargain prices. In fact Merida, the capital city of the Yucatan has become a mecca for world-wide medical tourism and many of the doctors at places like Star Medica trained at prestigious institutions in the US.
