Hello my name is Sely and had my first consultation with Dr. Hilario Juarez yesterday and like anyone else i'm sure have thousands of questions. I'm glad I've taken the first step into what i'm hoping is a better life. >>> UPDATE: I originally went to Dr. Juarez who I'm sure is a wonderful Dr. However I felt as if his staff unfortunately was pushing me to get something done I was not comfortable with. I visited Dr. De Barros and I felt more comfortable about the way he guided me through. Long story boraaang I am now APPROVED for surgery after a first denial and also tried hard to getting a loan to cover the 5000 co pay. Life is good God is great and I am thankful! Point to take away, this is a long and sometimes stressful process but never give up on health.>> UPDATE: Dr. De Barros ended up having to have emergency hip replacement surgery the week of my surgery so I ended up having surgery with Dr. Anthony Galitsky who turned out to also be a great and very understanding Dr. and very informative and was happy to answer all my questions just as Dr. De Barros did. Overall very happy with the Weight Loss Institute of AZ
