Jamie – Gastric Sleeve Surgery on December 2018 with Dr. Louisiana Valenzuela

I was sleeved by Dr. Louisiana Valenzuela on 12/21/18. I traveled alone and received excellent care from the team of doctors and nurses at . Although the hospital and rooms are a bit dated (by U.S. standards), the OR was pristine. I had zero complications, and in 9 months I have (fairly effortlessly) lost 75lbs; putting me just 15lbs from my goal weight! I am thrilled, and would highly recommend Mexico Bariatric Center to anyone.

Cindy – Gastric Sleeve Surgery in 2019 with Dr. Louisiana Valenzuela

"My experience with Mexico Bariatric Center was exceptional. Dr. Valenzuela was very professional and compassionate. The hospital is older but very clean. They do things like use alcohol and cotton balls versus prepackaged alcohol swabs and IVs are to gravity and not on a pump unless you have kidney or heart problems, there is nothing wrong with that. I was seen by a doctor several times a day and anytime I asked for something I got it. I could not have asked for more."
