Education and Training

Dr. Lopez Reviews and Ratings

We have heard nothing but great things from thousands of past patients who had weight loss surgery with  Christian Rodriguez, MD. His skill level, expertise, and his surgical team are far more experienced than the average bariatric surgeon. He has the precision to perform the hardest of surgeries, and his compassion and commitment are shown through hundreds of referrals every year.

“Sleeved yesterday. Dr. Rodriguez Lopez was my surgeon. I cannot say enough nice things about him. Doc also found I had a hiatal hernia (inner abdominal hole) which he repaired. Leak test was successful this morning. Drain was removed a few minutes ago. Resting as comfortably as can be reasonably expected, given the circumstances. Good luck to you if you are undergoing this procedure in the future. You’re in good hands.

Abigail – Weight Loss Surgery, November 2019

I drove to San Diego. That's it. EVERYTHING was coordinated and taken care of from there. The driver picked us up from the parking structure near the airport, drove us across the border to the medical facility for pre-op eval & labs, than to our beautiful hotel. Early next morning, we were transported to hospital for surgery. Everything went smoothly. No regrets whatsoever!

Nadine – Weight Loss Surgery. November 2019

Best decision I ever made. I had the gastric sleeve and if I had to do it over again, I would still choose Mexico Bariatric Center. The process was smooth and the staff was amazing. I had really low potassium when I came in and the doctor spent extra time with me to make sure I would be okay.

Dr. Rodriguez Lopez also took extra time during my procedure to ensure a successful procedure. I have had surgery a few times in various hospitals and this facility was hands down the best. Thank you!!

From scheduling your procedure with the friendly, prompt, courteous and professional Ms. Leili Kohan to the driver that transports you across the border.
