I started my journey several years ago. First checking with my insurance provider to see if they would cover my procedure. At that time I was looking into having the Lapband.
After I found out my insurance didn't cover any weight loss procedures, I started looking into other options. A co-worker and I started looking at different facilities that offered weight loss surgery at a reasonable cost. Actually she was the one who found Jerusalem Hospital thru a friend who had just returned from having surgery with Dr. Almanza.
We started our research that day on Jerusalem Hospital and Dr. Almanza. We were both very excited, Her husband went first and had the Gastric Sleeve. He came back and told of how wonderful his experince was. I knew this was the place for me.
I went ahead and set my surgery date.
Arriving at the Hotel I was a little nervous. After meeting the other patients, all my anxiety went away. my surgery went fine. Dr. Almanza is very nice, the staff was wonderful.
I'd recommend Jerusalem Hospital to anyone who needs a new start at life. It's been 9 weeks and I feel amazing!
Thank you Jerusalem Hospital, and especially thank you to Dr. Almanza.You have given me a new chance at life, thank you so much! You all rock!!!
