Dr. Valenzuela, her crew, and the hospital were very professional. I had amazing results and have since referred 12 family and friends back to her and her partner! I would have the surgery with her again in a heartbeat! (Starting weight 303, at my 1-year post op 165. Now four years out and holding at 170-which is where I wanted to be) I cannot recommend Dr. V enough!!!! Feb. 15, 2018

Another Satisfied Patient of Dr. Valenzuela

I did much research before choosing Dr. V. Dr. V comes very highly recommended and I believe has even had the surgery herself! I was her patient in August and am down 75 pounds - She was kind and understanding. Dr. V came to my room in the motel and stayed until I felt comfortable going home. I would recommend her 100% IF I had to choose something I would change it would be more written info on long-term care and lifelong changes because I don't navigate email well and struggle with the emails I received simply because of my own lack of computer skills. If I had to do this again I would choose her again! Feb. 16, 2018
