Dr Garcia...great Experience!



Recommended Posts

I was just sleeved yesterday by Dr. Garcia and what a wonderful experience. The facility is very clean, and they provide a private room with an extra bed for your companion. The nurses go above and beyond as far as making you comfortable and seeing to nausea meds or pain meds. There have been no language problems at all. Dr. Garcia took a long time explaining the procedure to us, and today he came by to tell me about everything that he told my husband. Also to let me know about going to the Marriott tomorrow and all the meds and paperwork they will give me for my doctor at home. Now I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Garcia and his staff to anyone:)

Wonderful....I had complete peace about being sleeved by Dr. Garcia on 8/3 but each experience helps just ease that anxiety starting to creep in!

So happy for both of you....cant wait to keep up with progress!

Typical price is $5,000 with 3 nights in the Marriot included. The only thing you have to pay in addition is airfare if needed. Sometimes he will run a special - I booked at a time when it was $4,700

Hey there - so you should still be in the hotel when I arrive on 8/2. It will be great to meet someone from the boards that is there and can share their experience in person!

We are almost there....

Getting close. Feeling a little nervous and anxious. Good luck to you!

Yes, the restaurant in the Marriott is great. I stayed 4 nights there as a patient of Dr. Ortiz earlier this month.

My husband really enjoyed their Breakfast and lunch buffets. All I had to say was 'I am an OCC patient, I'll be having the chicken broth" and they brought it right out without a second thought. It's a huge bowl that I could barely make a dent in. They happily put the excess in a styrofoam cup so I could take it with me to sip on.

Room service was equally good.

I will be having my surgery with Dr. Garcia on August 24th. I'm very happy to see so many positive messages about him and his staff. Although I am very excited I am still staring to get nervous. This decision came very quickly for

Me, I was trying to lose it on my own and was making some decent progress but after lowing out my back once agin I ended up back where I started and I feel it's just time to go ahead and get some help. So here I am, lol. Looking forward o the rest of my life being a happier healthier me!
