Mision De San Javier 10653 Suite #1003 Zona Rio 22010 Tijuana, B.C.

Meet Dr. Paul Casillas, M.D.

Since 2007, Doctor Paul Casillas has been treating patients with Ibogaine. He began his work with many of the pioneers of ibogaine treatment, in a clinical setting, helping with studies and ibogaine trials in Mexico. This was when ibogaine was relatively new and there were few clinics in Mexico treating patients with ibogaine.

Dr. Casillas has worked with more than five different clinics over the years, honing his skills and becoming more familiar with plant medicine. Now, Dr. Casillas is one of the most trained and specialized Ibogaine physicians in the world.

There are few medical doctors still administering Ibogaine today that have as much experience as Doctor Casillas.

And Dr. Casillas isn’t on the sidelines. He is present at every Ibogaine treatment treatment performed at Experience Ibogaine. Because, when it comes to ibogaine treatment and safety, paying for medical specialists who aren’t there when you need them doesn’t seem worthwhile at all.

Dr. Casillas is also very decorated and is respected as one of the top emergency medical physicians in Mexico.

From Dr. Paul Casillas –

“I obtained my medical degree from the Baja California Autonomous University. My experience is mainly in ER medicine, including continuous training and certification from the American Heath Association in advanced trauma and cardiovascular life support.

“I’ve been treating patients with ibogaine for more than 9 years now, I’ve found it to be the only real cures for addiction in my opinion. I’m still amazed at how people change after they experience treatment. I see it in their eyes. Every time patients come in they look like they´ve lost all hope and, after only one day, everything changes. For me, that’s the reason I love doing this. We have the opportunity to help somebody change his or her life.”

“I love reading, surfing, mountain biking, playing volleyball, and all around having fun with the patients who come through Experience Ibogaine. I’ve developed very close bonds with many of the patients who come through our clinic, and I love meeting and helping new patients feel comfortable and safe during their stay here!”
