I have to say I was skeptical to be traveling to an area of the world that I did not even speak the language. I read many of the testimonials from those who had been to the clinic, but there was one you-tube experience that alleviated my concerns the most I am going to paste it here it may help you, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvfXcBGm2Pg&feature=fvwrel

Like I indicated in the short title I am 3 months post-op from having my surgery and I've lost approximately 58 lbs now and have to say once again, the best decision this year. Another thing that concerned me was traveling alone, a good friend backed out last minute, but many friendships were made by others traveling in for surgery.

Andres Betancourt was a gem, at first I was not quite sure how to grasp or understand his personality, but I have to say he was priceless at setting us at ease. (You'll have to ask him about the mural on wall in the office area).

Not yet up to posting pictures yet, maybe in a month or two, I have to think about it.
