  • Name: Mercedes Bryant-Williams
  • Age: 46
  • Surgery: Gastric Sleeve
  • Surgery date: June 1st, 2017
  • Testimonial date: June 23rd, 2017
  • Surgeon: Dr. Mario Almanza
My experience with Dr. Almanza and his team was even better than I expected. Starting with the hotel which I was concerned about. I am a bit of a hotel snob, but the Hacienda Del Rio far exceeded my expectations. Its clean, safe and the safe and the staff is very attentive to the needs of the patient/guests. The hospital is small but very clean and the Dr. and his staff were beyond professional. The language barrier was not an obstacle in receiving top quality care. My surgery was 1 June and I was 205lbs, it has been 3 weeks and 1 day and I feel great. My current weight is 191. I have been taking my measurements and I am losing inches faster than pounds. I joined the YMCA the second week and have been walking on the treadmill and increasing my distance each time. I am able to eat semi-solid food this week and so far I have been able to tolerate most new foods with a few exceptions. I bought a couple books on Amazon to help with my new VSG lifestyle and way of eating and living. Its a life long commitment, but I am so happy I took this step toward wellness, and a smaller me!
