  • Surgeon: Dr. Almanza
I am determined to be healthy and at a reasonable weight by the time I turn 50. Because my insurance does not cover bariatric surgeries, I looked into different options. I found Dr. Almanza listed and read up about him and the facilities at Jerusalem Hospital. I looked for the bad as well as the good. I wanted to make an informed decision. The only negatives I found were regarding a joint recovery room, which is no longer the practice. I could find no negative comments regarding their professionalism, medical abilities, nor surgical outcomes. I felt confident that having my band done with Dr. Almanza would be a quality surgery. My experience was textbook. Everything was exactly as they described it would be. There were no surprises at all. I really appreciated that! The staff were friendly and competent. I am healing nicely and look forward to continued weight loss. It has been less than a month since my surgery, and even now, unfilled, I have lost 17 pounds. I will make my goal of being healthy and thin by 50! You can make your weight loss goal as well! I would recommend Dr. Almanza and team for your surgery. Please feel confident that what you read is what you get! They tell you everything you need to know, and don't have any "bait and switch" techniques once you are their patient. Good luck to you in your weight loss journey.
