Roberto A. Rumbaut, M.D.
When we arrived in Monterrey we were wisked away for some pre-op testing and then to meet Dr. R. My first physical meeting with him was brief and mostly consisted of seeing him flying out the door to do a surgery. He assured me he'd be seeing me in a bit. Meanwhile, Dr. Lizcelly showed me back and we had a nice chat about the procedure, eating habits, etc... It took quite a while for Dr. R to come back, it turns out the surgery had a complication and took about an hour more than expected. Overall you get the feeling that time is just a suggestion, after all, ha. After waiting for a couple of hours, it was finally time to meet with my surgeon. My first impression of him was very good. He was nice, caring and not condesending. We talked about the surgery and we were out of there, he promised he wouldn't keep me waiting the next morning! rnrnI suppose he didn't, I don't really remember much about the time frame but my husband said he talked with him just a couple hours later and that everthing went fine. rnrnThe one thing I didn't really enjoy was the language barrier between the nurses and ourselves. I kept trying to get across to them that I wanted to be able to walk a little but was told no. They were never rude or impolite though. When Dr. Gonzales came in the next morning he was shocked I'd not been out of bed and asked me why! I wanted to know the same thing! I was extremely worried about complications and I know that walking eases some of them! I will say that for the most part any request we had was taken care of in a timely manner by the hospital staff.rnrnOver all, I had a good experience. I would go back to Dr. R if I had to do it again. Having a doctor come and check on me everyday after surgery, even in the hotel, was reassuring. That would never happen in the states.rnrnOver all, I'd say he's a great surgeon, the hospital in Monterrey is very nice, and his staff is quite helpful.
