Our Bariatric Surgery Testimonial Stories*
Its very cold in England now we’re finally home! We had to stay an extra day in San Diego because there were no flights into/out of Philadelphia because of the snow! Nice extended holiday.
I am feeling fantastic. I was obviously nervous on arrival in Tijuana, but everything was managed so quickly and effectively that I soon felt at ease. The only discomfort I had was with the drain still in place when I was first discharged to the Hyatt hotel. However aside from that I did not vomit did not need extra pain relief, and the incisions are healing brilliantly. Raul laughed and said that I was the only patient who caused him no trouble! Everyone I meet associated with MBC was professional and polite. I consider the package a real bargain. I have lost 19 lbs since the day of the procedure, so no complaints about that either.
Many thanks for all your informative and reassuring emails sent. It made such a difference when booking from so far away.

Well, we are all done and relaxing at home now. Everything went wonderfully. We could not have been happier with the treatment we received during our time in Mexico from yourself to Victor, Tatianna, Danielle, Dr. Cabrera, Dr. Valenzuela, and all the staff at the hospital and Hyatt Place Hotel, Tijuana. Brandy and I are both doing well and will keep you posted on our progress.

Overall the experience was excellent, and everyone involved was great. The appearance of the hospital from the outside was a little disconcerting. I think I would have been less alarmed if it had been described as a surgical center, rather than a hospital. Once inside, it was clean and well equipped. However, there was insufficient hot water in the hospital for showering. That was disappointing, as I was very much looking forward to showering post op and believe that a hot shower would have provided pain relief.
The nursing staff was great. Their English was terrific, and they were extremely capable. I was in significant pain the first night post-op for which whatever pain medication I was receiving was insufficient. I wish I had been offered something stronger. I was very comfortable with all of the medical and nursing care I received; I am an APRN and can attest that it was absolutely comparable to medical care in the States.
I wish I had been given a little better anticipatory guidance regarding the incision healing. It took much longer than I anticipated. Also, it would be nice to know if there is any way to minimize the scarring.
The hotel was lovely. I really enjoyed Tijuana. Too bad I could not enjoy the food! On the third day, I realized that I could take a group cab (blue, I think) that only cost $1 to go in one direction. I wish I had known that sooner.

My daughter Katie and I had VGS done on Valentine’s Day 2013 at Hospital Mi Doctor. We are writing our testimonial to encourage those thinking about getting the VSG but may feel nervous or scared to have a procedure done in Tijuana.
From the beginning we have been treated with respect and sincere kindness from the coordinators and drivers to the physicians, hospital staff and hotel staff. We always felt we were in good hands and never left alone.
Our coordinator was exceptional in making sure all of our needs were met and checked on us several times per day. The physicians, Valenzuela, Cabrera Garcia, were very personable and truly took their time to address any and all of our questions and concerns. The medical staff and the nurses that cared for us during this process were warm and attentive; they made sure all comfort measures were taken, and their sincerity transcended any language and cultural barriers.
As nurses ourselves, we strongly encourage anyone thinking about getting the VGS to follow thru and have it done. We have no regrets and are happy with the outcome. You will be in loving, supportive hands of a bright and competent team that will help guide you thru a phenomenal, life-changing experience.

This whole experience has been awesome. I’ve waited years and years, and there’s no problem crossing the border. There’s no problem; everything is like you’d be in the states. Everyone at the hospitals has been great. The doctor came in to say hello to me, the nurses and anesthesiologist. Don’t hesitate, let your family scare you, don’t let your friends scare you. Don’t listen to them. Start a new life as I am. I cannot wait to show you the after pictures. Also, Ron Elli is great, Chrisy is awesome, don’t hesitate. Call Mexico Bariatric Center.

I’m on day three and although I’m on my third day post op I feel great. The staff has been amazing from day one (including you answering my gazillion emails) I couldn’t have been the easiest first patient lol. This was not the easiest decision to make but you definitely made it easier! I will let you know in a few weeks how I’m progressing.
Thanks a million!

I have nothing but GREAT reviews for Dr. Cabrera. He takes his time to explain everything and will give you a lecture/pep talk at the end. I felt very comfortable around him. The nurses were great. There are several that don’t speak a lot of English but will get a nurse that understands you. Dr. Cabrera had 2 other patients on the floor with me and none of us had any problems moving around. Everyone only had 1 incision but he will explain if he has to do another incision he will for everything to be safe.
