Our Bariatric Surgery Success Stories

Well, we are all done and relaxing at home now. Everything went wonderfully. We could not have been happier with the treatment we received during our time in Mexico from yourself, to Victor, Tatianna, Danielle, Dr. Cabrera, Dr. Valenzuela, and all the staff at the hospital and Marriott Hotel. Brandy and I are both doing well and will keep you posted on our progress.

Overall the experience was excellent, and everyone involved was great. The appearance of the hospital from the outside was a little disconcerting. I think I would have been less alarmed if it had been described as a surgical center, rather than a hospital. Once inside, it was clean and well equipped. But there was insufficient hot water in the hospital for showering. That was disappointing, as I was very much looking forward to showering post op and believe that a hot shower would have provided pain relief.
The nursing staff were great. Their English was terrific and they were extremely capable. I was in significant pain the first night post-op for which whatever pain medication I was receiving was insufficient. I wish I had been offered something stronger. I was very comfortable with all of the medical and nursing care I received; I am an APRN and can attest that it was absolutely comparable to medical care in the States.
I wish I had been given a little better anticipatory guidance regarding the incision healing. It took much longer than I anticipated. Also it would be nice to know if there is any way to minimize the scarring.
The hotel was lovely. And I really enjoyed Tijuana. Too bad I couldn’t enjoy the food! On the third day, I realized that I could take a group cab (blue, I think) that only cost 1$ to go in one direction. I wish I had known that sooner.

My daughter Katie and I had VGS done on Valentine’s Day 2013 at Hospital Mi Doctor. We are writing our testimonial to encourage those thinking about getting the VGS but may feel nervous or scared to have a procedure done in Tijuana.
From the beginning we have been treated with respect and sincere kindness from the coordinators and drivers to the physicians, hospital staff and hotel staff. We always felt we were in good hands and never left alone.
Our coordinator was exceptional in making sure all of our needs were met and checked on us several times per day. The physicians, Valenzuela, Cabrera Garcia were very personable and truly took their time to address any and all of our questions and concerns. The medical staff and the nurses that cared for us during this process were warm and attentive; they made sure all comfort measures were taken and their sincerity transversed any language and cultural barriers.
As nurses ourselves, we strongly encourage anyone thinking about getting the VGS to follow thru and have it done. We have no regrets and are happy with the outcome. You will be in the loving, supportive hands of a bright and competent team that will help guide you thru a phenomenal, life-changing experience.

Hi ladies I was just itching to touch base quickly with you . I am not quite home we stayed the night at the inlaws. First impressions were a little shaky as the driver was late and I couldn’t remember his name, that being said once we met Abraham he was amazing , humble and kind. I told him it was no biggie being held up at the airport because honestly Cherylee and I were able to have a cup of broth which perked us right up. Let me fast forward a bit, when we met edourdo as the tangible face for a lighter me, wow is all I can say. I know during our stay he had an incident with his van being broke into. I pray you keep him as that wasn’t his fault. He is everything that you could ask for in a rep. Not once did he make you feel uncomfortable for being there for bariatric surgery. He is funny as sin, caring and thoughtful. His English is immaculate and he genuinely cares for your patients. He made the whole experience wonderful. Wes wants to bring him home lol. And that is another huge part of those boys, husband care. Wes loved them! I could go on and on about those two , but there is just so much else to let you know. Dr. Lopez was amazing! I felt so safe and secure. Ronda you have to make sure that you keep pairing up your patients. I can’t express to you how much it meant having friends at your side and laughter oh my goodness it was like a vacation. Granted, we had a gasy vacation but it was grand! Well I prattled on a lot more than I expected. I will call you tomorrow Ronda and see how you are doing.
Take care, Teresa
This whole experience has been awesome. I’ve waited years and years and there’s no problem crossing the border. There’s no problem, everything is like you’d be in the states. Everyone at the hospitals has been great. The doctor came in to say hello to me, the nurses and anesthesiologist. Don’t hesitate, let your family scare you, don’t let your friends scare you. Don’t listen to them. Start a new life like I am. I can’t wait to show you the after pictures. And Ron Elli is great, Chrisy is awesome, don’t hesitate. Call Mexico Bariatric Center.
