Let me tell you about my experience with Dr. Almanza…it was excellent! The decision to get
surgery outside of the United States was an amazing journey. After extensive research on the different types of bariatric surgeries, I decided the gastric sleeve was the best option for me. While doing research, I noticed that traveling to Mexico for bariatric surgery was quite common and very affordable.

When I discovered my health insurance did not cover weight-loss surgery; I decided to reach out to several of the bariatric surgery facilities in Mexico. The responses from the Jerusalem Clinic's patient liaison were comprehensive and nurturing; and part of the reason I chose Dr. Almanza as my surgeon.

I made the decision to travel to Mexico alone…yet somehow never felt alone the entire trip.
The staff at the Jerusalem Clinic is very professional and informative; they are experts of bariatric surgery. Dr. Almanza is a great surgeon: he had gastric sleeve surgery and understands the experience.

The 24/7 nursing staff and level of care at the recovery house exceeded my expectations.
During my three-day stay, I made new friends and received practical information to begin my weight-loss journey. I love my sleeve and the weight-loss I am experiencing. I highly recommend Dr. Almanzaand the Jerusalem Clinic. Regrets…only one…I did not have surgery sooner!
