    Dr. Almanza's Testimonials

    The greatest experience

    I am so incredibly happy to have had this experience. I received great care. The hospital was super clean, beautiful and the nurses were super kind. I loved being able to recover in a hotel room instead of a hospital. The hotel nurses were great as well. I brought my boyfriend with me and it made i... *

    "You're NOT that big"

    I would do it over again and again and again! I'm so happy with my results!

    I have a little different story to tell. I am not your 100lbs+ over weight person. I was not obese by normal standards. I was 50lbs over weight and I'd "tried it all" to loose my weight. I went in for surgery at 170lbs (si... *

    A fresh start on life!

    I was very nervous and not sure what to expect,but I did it anyway. My friend and I did it together, and I couldn't be happier that we did it. They took very good care of us and we felt safe and secure. As far as the surgery goes, it went well, very little pain and we were up and moving that day aft... *

    I am getting my life back!

    The Gastric Sleeve: One of the best decisions of my life. I m only 3 weeks post-op, down 17 lbs, but the changes are astounding and the surgery was a breeze. Don t get me wrong, this isn t an easy fix, you have to work at it every day, but it is so worth it. I am 59 years old female, 238 lbs pre-opp... *

    Life Changing Experience

    Last year around this time I was very depressed and emotional... so much was going on and so much happened. I think I hit my lowest I ve ever felt in my life. I ve never felt so hurt, betrayed, abandoned, and homeless. I started developing an eating disorder. I didn t realize how serious it was unt... *

    Don't weight another day to make a better life.. Down 107 pounds

    Just like most I was a little nervous going out of the country to have surgery. Well I had nothing to worry about the whole process went better than I thought. They picked us up at the airport then we crossed the border. I got there the day before my surgery. I was able to get my blood work done the... *

    My experience

    My experience was nothing less than perfect.
    Sometimes when you hear that people do surgeries in Mexico, you start to get a little nervous. The treatment they gave me and the amount of attention they pay to their patients really shows you they care.
    My nurses would come check up on me once an hour... *

    Average response time: 1 day 14 hours 1 minute

    What's this? This is the average amount of time that it takes lately for this provider to respond to a patient for consideration. The way it works, is when a client expresses interest in receiving services from a provider, the provider must accept the client as a patient into their practice. Our one-of-a-kind platform makes it so simple! You'll complete a questionnaire, and your responses will be presented to the providers that you're considering. The purpose of this process of allowing providers to select their patients ensures that expectations are in line, and it gives you a chance to get to know each other. This unique process makes it easier for clients, especially those with complex cases, to get approved for the procedure they desire, than more traditional methods. With our easy to use platform, you're not on your own.
