Testimonials Carley

I was sleeved by Dr. Mario Camelo on Friday the 16th. I was nervous because everyone I talked to had different Drs. I am SO VERY HAPPY! He was the best doctor for me. I feel like I left with the bariatric knowledge to last me for life and to be very successful. He came in both days twice to see me! I love Dr. Camelo….I would be more than happy to send a monthly picture or be used as a referral. I am also 60 so for those that think they might be too old…there’s no such thing…
