What happens on your 1st Visit?
Almost everything gets done in your first visit! Let's organize it in 4 stages.
Stage 1: Your Arrival.
If you arrived to San Ysidro driving, we recommend you leave your car parked in the US and just cross the border by foot, it's that easy. Our driver will be receiving you right in front of the main exit. Our International Patient Coordinators will be in touch with you via text, providing you important information along the way.
