My surgeon was Dr. Almanza and he was terrific!
Hi my name is Tara and I had my surgery on March 8th 2016 with no complications whatsoever and absolutely no regrets. My surgeon was Dr. Almanza and I experienced minimal pain right after surgery (mostly just gas) and my insicions are now neat, little, fading scars. I can't compare Dr. Almanza to any other surgeons but my experience with him was awesome and I was very happy that I had chosen him. I've had nothing but great results! I lost all my weight that I wanted in 7 months!
I went from from a size 16/18 to a 0/2

In Mexico it was great!
The doctors, nurses and the staff were WONDERFUL.
From the pick-up at the San Diego Airport to the check in at the hotel. Going to the clinic the next morning, lab draws, meeting my surgical team and having the surgery first class ALL the way!!!
Hotel was fantastic and the area was great!
I was treated better in Mexico then any hospital I've been to in the US.
Dr Almanza is Personable, knowledgeable, professional, confident, patient.
My experience from our driver, all arrangements, doctors, nurses far exceeded my expectations. If you are having any other doubts about getting sleeved, I will tell you what probably 99% of sleevers will tell you: having this surgery was the absolute best thing I ever could have done for myself. Today I feel alive, energized, renewed, assertive and my self-confidence is slowly starting to make a comeback. I want to shout it from the roof-tops and I want everyone who has ever struggled with their weight to feel this way...GO FOR IT!!!!
