I am work in the medical community in the United States, so I was very surprised/pleased/excited/liberated to find that the surgery center and the staff at Jerusalem Hospital and Dr. Almanza were so great! I was nervous when I first pulled up to the center, but after spending time with the staff I could tell right away that I was in good hands. It has been almost a year since my surgery and I have lost over 75lbs! I have never looked and felt better and it feels surreal that my old life even existed as a significantly overweight person. I look back at pictures of myself and wonder why I didn't have the surgery sooner and take that first step. I look 15 years younger and weigh less than I did in high school! As a medical professional myself, I really appreciated the communication that I had before, during, and after my procedure. Dr. Almanza's track record with gastric sleeve surgery was very impressive to me and the #1 reason I chose him--but now after my experience I realize how very fortunate I was and am to have had him as my surgeon and his staff taking care of me. I would recommend him and Jerusalem Hospital to anyone considering this type of surgery. Their facility does so many of these procedures that no detail has been overlooked and they have thought of everything! I am so glad I had the gastric sleeve done!! Thank you Dr. Almanza!!!
