Corina – Gastric Sleeve Surgery in June 2018 with Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez

I had my surgery with Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez on June 1, 2018. As a pre-nursing student, patient interaction is very important to me. Dr. Gutierrez came to introduce himself to me before surgery and answered all questions. After surgery, he did the same.

That meant a lot to me. Very handsome, kind, attentive, and great bedside manners. I highly recommend Dr. Gutierrez!

Madison – Gastric Sleeve Surgery, September 2017

It was the best decision of my life to have the gastric sleeve. I chose Mexico Bariatric Center because of all the rave reviews I had heard from my friends and clients. The staff was so friendly and my husband and I had an awesome experience while we were there! I stand as a hairdresser all day so losing the weight, for me, meant feeling better at work and then having the energy to come home and play with my 2 children!

Goodwin, Gastric Sleeve with Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez

I had gastric sleeve surgery on December 9, 2017. I have reached my goal weight in less than a year. I had absolutely no complications, none. I highly recommend MBC & Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez. My sister & a very close friend of mine had the surgery after seeing my results & 2 other friends are planning on going in the near future. Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez has a great bedside manner, he is very easy to communicate with, gives you time to ask any questions, and follows up after surgery.

Christopher, Gastric Sleeve Surgery with Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez

Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez was wonderful. He is very friendly, informative, answered all my questions, even relieved my husband's fear. Explained everything in an easy to understand way. As soon as the surgery was over, he came to my husband to ensure he knew I was well. My surgery went precisely as planned, with no complications. In the last 4 1/2 months post-op, I have lost 63lbs and continue to lose. 40 more lbs to go. The whole experience at Mexico Bariatric Center with Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez was amazing and easy from beginning to end. I highly recommend this surgeon. He gave me my life back. I will never forget the gift I have been given.

I had an absolutely wonderful experience during my surgical stay. The nurses and doctor were extremely professional and took great care of me. I cannot thank Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez and Mexico Bariatric Center for all their hard work at making this experience wonderful!

Pam Meier – Gastric Sleeve Surgery, June 2020

I had gastric sleeve surgery two weeks ago with Dr. Gutierrez! Getting along great!!! All precautions are taken for cleaning and disinfecting!! Thank you MBC staff, nurses, and doctors!!

I would just like to let those watching the live webinar that there is such much information on the MBC website—pre-op diet, post-op diet, vitamins.. print that information off, highlight really important stuff and study it!! Watch as many webinars prior to surgery. I learned something new each time I watched!! Best wishes to everyone!!
