I am a USCG Captain and the Coast Guard said I either lose weight or lose my License and all endorsements. I was stuck in a hard place as the US doctors wanted $18,500 cash price for my surgery as Louisiana Blue cross blue shield nor Entrust would approve it because I didnt fit their criteria. Then an angel crossed my path on a weightloss website and told me about Jerusalem Hospital. So I researched Dr Mario Almanza Reyes and went on numerous weightloss boards and nothing threw a red flag so I put the down payment and went get my sleeve done. I had Zero complications besides passing 2 gallstones so a word of advice "remove your gallbladder". Besides that everything was satisfactory. I actually just got back from Tijuana friday March 28th because my girlfriend just had her sleeve done by Almanza.
Would I do it again. Yes!!!!
