Danielle, Gastric Sleeve with Dr. Rodriguez

Honestly, I cannot thank Mexico Bariatric Center enough. Dr. Rodriguez Lopez...I can not say enough kind words about him. He came in and talked to me before my surgery to see if I had any questions. And he took a few moments and talked to me after my husband's surgery and that meant everything to me. I am so grateful we chose him to be our surgeon.♥️

Chana M, Mini Gastric Bypass with Dr. Rodriguez

From Karla (the best coordinator ever) to the nurses, Dr. Rodriguez (my surgeon) who didn’t even flinch but smiled kindly when I asked him with tears in my eyes to “please do a good job,” the nurse staff (Juan) at the hotel (which is amazing) and precious Ms. Olga (nurse at hotel), I have wanted for nothing. I want to simply say thank you so very much for your care, concern, kind and professional bedside manner, and smiles ?

Deena W, Gastric Sleeve to Gastric Bypass Revision with Dr. Rodriguez

I had a revision from sleeve to bypass in June 2020. I’m so happy I made this life change!!! I had Dr. Rodriguez and he was amazing!!! It’s a pretty easy surgery.

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!!
