I HAD THE GASTRIC SLEEVE DONE ON JUNE 15TH,2012. THE DOCTORS AND THE STAFF WERE THE
BEST. EVERYONE WAS FRIENDLY AND KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT THE SURGERY. WHEN I GOT TO THE AIRPORT I AND OTHERS WERE PICKED UP BY A VAN AND TAKEN ACROSS THE BORDER. NO PROBLEMS. AT THE FACILITY I HAD MY BLOOD WORK DONE AND AN IV STARTED BY A NURSE. THEN I SAW A CARDIOLOGIST AND WAS EXAMINED BY HIM. WE WERE TAKEN UPSTAIRS WHERE WE MET THE SURGEON. HE WAS ABSOLUTELY CHARMING AND EXPLAINED HOW EVERYTHING WOULD BE DONE. WE WAITED UPSTAIRS. THE ADMINISTRATOR CALLED ME IN AND TALKED OVER THE PROCEDURE ALSO AND MY MEDICAL HISTORY. I CONTINUED TO WAIT TILL IT WAS MY TURN FOR SURGERY. I WAS TAKEN DOWNSTAIRS TO THE SURGERY SUITE AND NEXT THING I REMEMBER IT WAS OVER. I WAS LAYING DOWN DOWNSTAIRS IN A SMALL ROOM WITH THE NURSE PRESENT. EVENTUALLY I WAS TAKEN UPSTAIRS TO MY ROOM WHERE I STAYED. DIDN'T HAVE TOO MUCH PAIN A LITTLE GAS. THEY GIVE YOU SCHEDULED NAUSEA, PAIN, AND ANTIBIOTICS IV WHILE YOU ARE THERE. I WAS TAKEN TO THE RECOVERY HOUSE THE NEXT DAY. THE STAFF WAS GREAT. THE HOUSE IS IN A GATED AREA PLUS ALL WINDOWS HAVE BARS. THE DAY I LEFT WE WERE TAKEN TO A CLINIC FOR A LEAK TEST. I OPTED TO LEAVE AFTER THAT BUT I COULD HAVE STAYED ANOTHER DAY IF I WANTED. THE VAN THEN TAKES YOU BACK ACROSS THE BORDER TO THE AIRPORT. ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEMS CROSSING THE BORDER IN OR OUT OF MEXICO. THERE WERE MANY PATIENTS PICKED UP AND DROPPED OFF AT THE AIRPORT. ANDY MANY PATIENTS AT THE RECOVERY HOUSE. IT'S GREAT BECAUSE YOU CAN TALK TO THEM AND NOT ALL OF US WERE THERE FOR THE GASTRIC SLEEVE. ONE WAS THERE FOR A MOMMY MAKEOVER, ONE FOR BREAST IMPLANTS AND TUMMY TUCK, ANOTHER FOR EXCESS FLESH REMOVAL FROM ARMS AND A LOT OF OTHER PROCEDURES. 2 LADIES WERE FROM AUSTRALIA 1 FROM CANADA AND FROM MANY OTHER PLACES. I NEVER HEARD ANYTHING NEGATIVE ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCES. SO I'VE LOST ABOUT ALL THE WEIGHT I NEEDED TO LOSE WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS OR COMPLICATIONS. I AM VERY HAPPY I HAD THIS DONE AND VERY HAPPY AND SATISFIED I CHOOSE THIS DOCTOR. I'M NOW WEARING A SIZE 8 AND
IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I COULD WEAR THAT. I GO TO ZUMBA CLASSES 3 TIMES A WEEK AND FEEL GREAT. I DEFINITELY WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PHYSICIAN TO ANYONE. DON'T WAIT TO BE HAPPY AND HEALTHY! FRAN

    Response: Congrats! Just a note to all, we no longer utilize the recovery house. Patients now stay at a hotel after surgery, as the recovery house was eventually outgrown.
