Crossing the Boarder
Sometimes mobile reception isn't reliable in that area, so if you need to talk to someone or you want to communicate with the clinic, make the call while driving away from the airport.
Once you arrive at the boarder your transportation service will not be driving you across; it's only about a four block walk to Dr. Dennis's clinic, so pack lite and no worries, you're just as safe there as anywhere!
You won't show your passport as you enter Mexico, but you will show it when you leave, so make sure you have it.
