I had a lot of hesitations about going to Mexico to have surgery. My friends and my family all judged me and told me it was a bad idea. . .


The day I said yes to Dr. Almanza and Mexico was THE DAY THAT CHANGED MY LIFE!

The customer service and professionalism through EVERY STEP of this process was phenomenal and UNMATCHED here in the states. His prices were the best and covered the most. Even the hotel that Dr. Almanza partners with to house his guests is in a great part of Tijuana, GORGEOUS and the staff was just AMAZING. Again, they KNOW how to treat their guests!

My husband was included in everything. We had a personal driver (no charge) that took us wherever we needed to go, showed us the sites and gave us tips on the best places to find a burrito :)

Surgery was scary - I'm a nurse and it was SO different than what I am used to in the states, but every person I met at the hospital gave me encouragement and held my hand through it. I hugged Dr. Almanaza before I left. I told him he changed my life. My husband shook his hand and told him he gave him his wife back.

I am on several support groups on facebook and all of the side effects and adverse reactions I see other people complaining about.. . I've had NOT ONE.

Dr. Almanza and staff: If you read this, me and my family are forever greatful to you and I would recommend you in a HEARTBEAT! Thank you from the bottom of my heart and for saving my life! <3 <3 <3

I would love to post pictures after I've lost more weight! My starting weight was 360 and I am currently 4 weeks post op at 328! Best of luck!
