En Español If you are gay and visiting or living in Puerto Vallarta, and need to see a physician, Dr. Omar Hernández Sánchez wants you to know he’s here for you – he knows that many gay men are more comfortable with a gay physician that can speak English, and discuss more intimate health concerns with the physician.

Dr. Sánchez is “Doctor Puerto Vallarta” and started his business in February 2020 by offering at home and at hotel visits. In December 2021, he opened a physical office at Lázaro Cárdenas 270, which is across the street from popular bars like Flamingos and La Noche.

He’s also offering specilized services for the LGBTQ community, including providing Prep and some other HIV medications. And even though he now has a physical office, he will make house calls, with someone available from his team 24/7.

Sánchez received his medical training from one of the best medical schools in Mexico – Universidad Autonoma del Estado de México. He later went on to get a MSc in Public Health at King’s College, London.

“I went to medical school because I love helping others,” he said when asked his motivation for such a demanding career.

He and his husband Dean currently live in Puerto Vallarta, a place he has called home since 2016. When he originally moved to Puerto Vallarta, he worked as a physician on-call for several of the hotels. He fell in love with the city and its people, and decided to make a new home here.
