    SCI Docs and PTs in Quer?taro, Mexico

    I'm going to connect with SCI doctors (PMNR) and physical therapy services in Queretaro, Mexico.
    Any info appreciated!

    Am unaware of any SCI specialists, PM&R or otherwise, in Queretaro. Are you planning to move there? I am aware of some rehabilitation physicians in Guadalajara and Chihuahua, as well as Mexico City, but not in that state.

    Yes. I'm considering moving there at least half-time, possibly full-time.

    That's cool. I've considered it as well. An old college professor of mine wrote a book called "Why Mexico?" about his decision to live in Mexico and come here to teach a few summer semester classes each year (3 months of work in the US more than funded 9 months of comfortable, work free, living in Mexico.)

    I am sure you are aware that your Medicare coverage (if any) is not good outside the USA.

    It's barely good inside the US.

    I've never used the Medicare I have owing to great company insurance here in the US. I have a job offer in Queretaro, but could likely keep my current job as what I do doesn't require being in an office outside my home. My company also has a site north of Mexico City, so I could transfer employment there if necessary. Lots of options.

    Beautiful weather, excellent food, low cost of living (1/4 the US) and Queretaro is a modern, clean city to boot. You can buy a small house in a great neighborhood for $60k or a friggin mansion with well water for $200k. Very tempting.
