I started the journey into a surgical alternative for my obesity on June 20th 2007 at 276 pounds. I had a laparoscopic vertical sleeve gastrostomy accomplished by Dr. Almanza My first impression of Dr. Almanza was when my sister in the united states told about what he has done to improve peoples life s. I got interested in it straight away and got in touch with him. My first telephone conversation with him lasted about 20 minutes. He even called me back when we were disconnected. My admiration of him as a humanitarian and prodigal surgeon grew with each conversation and meeting.
His assistant, is more than competent, bubbly and supportive. You should know that Dr. Almanza is attentive, caring and available. He delights in his profession and the blessings it can bring to others (if they take advantage of the tools he offers).
He also avails himself of current studies in his field and passes that information onto his patients. I like that ALOT. He emphasizes aftercare and offers support groups through monthly meetings with him and educates his patients about Obesity and he expressed that my life will never be the same after the process. He sent me lot of information s in his email and website.
He is very honest about risks and benefits and that this surgery is just a tool. He is right. That is all it is. That is however, what made the difference for me. I took his advice very seriously. I am currently at 176 lbs. and my body BMI 61 before my surgery in 2014 and I was over 46 stone, I would rate Dr. Almanza on a scale of 1 to 10 at 200+. I cannot speak highly enough of his caring and professional skills. So, which is better, his bedside manner or surgical competence? Well, if you would like both, choose Dr. Almanza and you will be in the very best of hands to you. I was a UK size 32/34 and now am using size 18 UK size in 12 month of my surgery. This is the best decision I have ever obtain in my life.
