I decided to have gastric sleeve surgery after a few coworkers went and had an overall good experience. I didn't want to wait to go through all the hoops for here in America to potentially be denied, therefore i worked my butt off and paid cash for my surgery.

I had an overall a great experience there was some things i wish were better such as pain management. As a nurse and knowing what i know. The toradol and tramadol medication wasnt sufficient for my pain. It was the worse pain i have ever experienced. I've had multiple c-sections, gallbladder removed, D&C, and EGD. I was in total pain every day until i came back to states to get something stronger.

Also, my group of people didn't get our blood work done as promised and no refund was given. I did get a call and an apology. So be sure to get your blood work done because if you need a transfusion or you have other things going on its so crucial to know!

The hospital is very clean. Staff all spoke well english and was very helpful. They are also very accommodating to your guests. If you bring someone with you than make sure you bring enough money to cover food expenses and possibly hotel fee if they aren't staying with you.

They do pick up and drop off at airport and all the drivers are very kind. The nurse who really went above and beyond is Alex or Alejandra. It truly made for a wonderful experience.

I did fly home and used a wheelchair for transporting and being the first one on and off the plane, this helped a lot because you are very uncomfortable.
