  1. I had surgery with Dr. Rod on Feb. 4, 2012 in Juarez at Star Medica. I went through BeLite and my coordinator was Deborah. I had a great experience. All of my needs were taken care of and Dr. Rod was awesome. My partner traveled with me and we felt completely safe. We were met at the airport and taken across the border to the hospital where I completed my pre-surgery testing. After, we walked next door to have my last meal at a Mexican Restaurant. I am now 9 months out and down 100 lbs with zero complications. This is the best thing I've ever done for myself. I would recommend Dr. Rod to everyone.

    Feb 2012- How Are You Doing?

    My surgery was 2/4 and I am down 76 lbs. The weight loss has been slow for the last few weeks but I haven't been in the gym as much as before. I am trying to get through a busy time at work and get back on my program. My goal was to lose 100 lbs in 6 months but I was 24 lbs away. So my new goal is to do it by month 9.
  4. I had my surgery in Juarez with Dr Rod on 2/4/12. It was a great experience and I felt completely safe. I started at 260 lbs and 5 weeks out I am 230.4 lbs. Speaking Spanish definitely helps. I have absolutely no complaints.
  5. I had VSG in Mexico with Dr. Rodriguez. It is the best thing I ever decided to do. The cost is about $8000 and the hospital was safe and very clean. It is actually used by the US Embassy.

    I had my surgery with Dr. Rod in Juarez on 02/04/12 and the hospital was completely safe. It is unusual for them not to get back in touch with you. Are you going through BeLite Weight? Ultimately, you have to do what makes you the most comfortable because the surgery is not an easy process.
