Nicole – Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Tijuana on March 2017 with Dr. Ismael Cabrera

Dr. Ismael Cabrera was a wonderful surgeon and had the best bedside manner of any surgeon I’ve ever met. He spoke with me for quite some time before and after surgery to make sure I was feeling OK. I traveled quite a long way and by myself which the doctor was shocked when he learned, I was alone. He was very kind and made me feel reassured and said they’re there with me and will take good care of me.

I honestly couldn’t have had a better experience and I’m so happy I made the decision to go with Dr. Cabrera! I could not recommend him more highly!! March 1, 2018
