I've been in contact with one of his coordinators, but haven't made the decision whether or not to go with him. I've seen some decent feedback on OH, but not here. I felt comfortable with his coordinator, but there is SO much info out there, I guess you have to just feel comfortable and at ease with your decision. I wish you ALL the best! Keep in touch!

I wish we were sleeve sisters!
My date with him is June 29th at Star Medica.
There are two gals going during my stay, but they're bandsters.

This is true - if you don't feel comfortable with your choice, then obviously you've made the wrong choice. As long as you have researched, researched and researched some more and you are okay with all of his stats, prices, etc., then that is all that matters. YOU have to be comfortable with it, not anyone else. As WASa says, what works for some doesn't work for others, and vice versa.

Good luck with your surgery and taking your life back.

I posted this on another forum but I think it probably beongs here..

I had a friend that went to Star Medica and had Dr. Jose Rodriguez, she said she was treated like a Queen. Dr. Rodriguez has done quite a few of these new Sleeve Plications both in Juarez and Tijuana, I think you have a choice as to which location, but don't quote me on that. She had some help to get there from one of those services, belite, beliteweight, something like that. The price was not too bad she said she paid less than 6500, was that good? My daughter might be considering it.

So I am thinking of having Dr. Rodriguez perform my surgery for the gastric sleeve plication super sleeve. I was wondering if anyone can share their experience they had with him and his team. Also what hospital you went to and who you used for coordinator. I am really battling terms with my husband as he thinks Im crazy but on the other hand knows that the last 15 years have been an ongoing battle with weight and endless on again off again diets that seem to work at first then wear off.

Has anyone used beliteweight and Dr. Jose Rodriguez. The have approved me for financing through them for VSG surgery in Mexico with Dr Rod and I am just trying to get some information from people that have used them. The approved me for financing very quickly which concerns me a little bit and I do not want to waste my money. If you have used Dr Rod or beliteweight please email me at jenniferedmon@yahoo.com
I am hoping to have surgery in October.
