Gastric Sleeve Testimonials
I had Surgery at Mexico Bariatric Center on September 24, 2013. I am a healthcare professional, and I have nothing but praise for this center. Dr. Valenzuela was my surgeon along with her assistant Dr. Altamirano, the Internist and Dr. Miguel Garcia. My anesthesiologist was Dr. Gallardo. From the pick-up at the San Diego Airport to the check in at the hotel. Going to the clinic the next morning, lab draws, meeting my surgical team and having the surgery – all FIRST CLASS. Danny and Tatiana are there for anything you need….

Both doctors Valenzuela and Cabrera were excellent! Personable, knowledgeable, professional, confident, patient. My experience from our driver, host, all arrangements, doctors, nurses far exceeded my expectations. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.

Marilyn Bariatric Surgery Success Stories
I’m home and feeling great and missing Tijuana and it’s beautiful people. Christy, you have been so supportive and thoughtful during my journey. I know that I would have never traveled to Tijuana for surgery had it not been for you and your knowledge concerning bariatric surgery. I will never forget how you assisted me while making one of the biggest decisions I’ve ever made in my life!
You were so right when you said that Dr. Valenzuela and Dr. Cabrera are the top bariatric surgeons in their field! They are definitely very trained and skilled surgeons who truly care about their patients. I trusted Dr. Valenzuela and Dr. Cabrera with my life and was completely at ease. They are true experts and in my opinion are the best bariatric surgeons in their profession! I will recommend them to everyone considering bariatric surgery (I’ve already had a few phone calls from people in my area).
I loved Dr. Garcia, and the anesthesiologist was marvelous! Dr. Garcia spent so much time with me making sure that I was comfortable and that I understood the entire procedure. I’ve never been so cared for by a medical staff and will never forget my remarkable experience in Tijuana. The entire nursing staff was professional and accommodating. I have never had such outstanding medical care in my life! I was completely at ease the entire time at the MI Doctor Hospital. Daniel was so supportive while looking after my husband; I cannot say enough about Victor! What a gentleman and kind soul!
The Marriott Hotel was stunning, and I loved the high-end shopping center that was so close to the hotel. Everyone in Tijuana was so welcoming and friendly. What I saw was nothing like I thought Tijuana would look like. Tijuana is a beautiful place, and I will return.
Christy, I was truly treated like royalty by the entire staff at the MI Doctor Hospital also by Daniel, Victor and yourself. I will never forget the compassionate and kind-hearted people I met during my life changing voyage!

I had my gastric sleeve surgery on May 15th 2014, I have lost 90 pounds so far and have eliminated just about all of my medications. I am down to 206 pounds and hope to be down 100 pounds at my one year mark in May.
Gabriela Gastric Sleeve Testimonial
My name is Gabriela Lavoy, I recently had the Gastric Sleeve procedure done by Dr. Carlos Diaz. It was an amazingly positive experience, in one month I am now free of insulin and blood pressure medication. Yes, I have lost weight but the health benefits that this surgery has brought into my life are much more than just loss of pounds.
Cheri Nichols Testimonial
Surgery: Gastric Sleeve
Surgery Date: December 12th 2014
Not only did I want to thank for for the incredible team you put together who made my journey an amazing one, I wanted to give kudos to everyone one on an individual basis. My unparalleled patient coordinator, Cindy, is really the one who put me at ease about traveling out of the United States for surgery. She probably went above and beyond to make me comfortable with my decision to the point where I would now call her friend. Dr Valenzuela and her team did a beautiful surgery and I recommend her highly whenever anyone on the support forum is searching for a surgeon, but mostly I want to thank you for making this all possible. I am now excited to see where my future takes me!
