I am delighted to share with you my decision on having the Orbera balloon inserted and my experience at Dr. Felipe Cantu facility.

I have tried numerous diets and always ended up back at the beginning. Blood pressure out of control and weight continued to increase. I have been around a person that has had the by-pass procedure and that was not an option for me, considering I did not want much down time of being off from work. After I begin researching the Internet, ran across the Orbera procedure, and felt that might be just the right help I needed to overcome my hurdle of losing weight. I looked at two location Tijuana and Reynosa; distance played a factor in my decision along with what others thought about the location and facility. After speaking with a weight loss agent, my decision concluded. My journey started, talking with agents frequently until my arrival at the facility in Reynosa.
If I was not such an adventurous person and decided to cross the border myself, Dr. Felipe has make preparation on coming by the hotel to pick up my guest and me. Therefore, my advice to anyone is WAIT. After arriving at the facility my overall experience was one that I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone. It was safe, the amount quoted was exact, not a penny more and the doctors and staff was EXCELLENT, I regret not speaking Spanish, but that wasn t a problem some of the staff spoke English and also Dr. Felipe. The procedure was painless actually; I do not remember a thing. I spoke with everyone involved concerning my aftercare moving forward to having a successful weight loss. I was my given medication needed at NO additional cost and all my concern was address.

After perhaps an hour or two observation, Dr. Felipe drove us back across the border without any problem. He checked me into the most beautiful hotel, at No additional cost, and escorted us to our room. He made sure I was ok and told me that someone would come tomorrow to get us. The next morning at 9:00 am Dr. Hernando another wonderful doctor was there to either take me back across the border if I need additional medical assistance or release me and remove my IV. I was just a little dehydrated but not enough that I would have to go back across the border. Therefore, he provided instruction and the ok to return home.
I will return in February 2018 for my removal, which was included in my price $3899.00 and I look forward to my return, knowing I have nothing to be concerned about in crossing the border.

I really appreciate the staff and the Dr. for all the attention and care that they had given me.

Very Happy Patience,
Cynthia P.
