My heart had an ejection fracture below 30.

In January, 2016, I weighed an all-time high of 330 pounds. As you can imagine, my health was very poor. It was then that I met Dr. Rafael Moguel at CMC in Cozumel, Mexico. He informed me that my heart had an ejection fracture below 30 – VERY bad! As a result, I had to have a pacemaker/defibrillator implanted. I was scared to death, but Dr. Moguel had a very calming way, and he listened to and worked WITH me. I will forever be grateful for that.

I have never trusted physicians in the past. However, I cannot say enough about Rafa’s genuine, caring, and compassionate care for each and every patient. I have and will continue to trust him with my life, and will recommend him 100% to anyone who asks.

Since that fateful day over 2 years ago, I have lost 130 pounds, and my health has greatly improved. In fact, my heart has recovered dramatically. It has been so dramatic that in October 2017, Rafa removed my device! I was extremely anxious during the procedure as it was done under local anesthetic. Again, he was very patient with me, and the procedure went smoothly. I only had to stay a couple of hours, then went home.

I proudly now work with this amazing cardiologist and have absolute faith in him and his skills. Should you ever require any of the procedures he provides, I would encourage you to contact him without hesitation! I am forever grateful to Rafa for his professional care and for his friendship!
