Dr Arguello and his staff made a horrible situation into a happy experience. Years ago in the US, I had reconstructive implants after the removal of several cysts and tumors. Now, I live in Costa Rica and am a patient at Clinica Biblica. During my annual physical, it became evident that my implant had ruptured and that I had several other medical issues. The removal of the implant became urgent, but my financial situation was challenging, also. He understood my situation, gave me a great price and later operated in a private clinic, Clinica Zahha. Every person on his staff was more than prepared and helpful. The clinic was so clean and modern, while the follow up was thorough. Patient safety and precautions were explained and enforced. While I don't like wearing the surgical stockings, they made the risks of not wearing them very clear. Even the different types of medications were explained. His assistant Dr. Arce and manager Susanna, called me daily to make sure that I was following the procedures, exercising and that my medication agreed with me. I have worked in medical journalism and tourism and would recommend him to any of my friends and clients.
