On September 2, 2013, I had my Gastric Sleeve surgery done by Dra. Louisiana Valenzuela. I had a great experience both with my U.S.coordinator and with the team in Mexico. For my week there in Mexico, all of the nurses and doctors were very much like family to me, so as a former patient I would love the opportunity to help others with their weight loss journey.
