Doctor Lopez Shut Down For Illegally Operating?



Recommended Posts

I read about Doctor Lopez which is a 'BariatricPal Deal' surgeon here being shut down for illegally operating. Why has no one pointed this out? Would invite comments from his coordinators on here if possible.

Tijuana, Baja Calif Ten cosmetic clinics and beauty surgery were closed on Wednesday in the city of Tijuana after health authorities found that did not meet the minimum requirements to operate legally.

Santa Fe Medical Group clinic, doctor Jesus Manuel Baez Lopez.

I seen a posting on another forum talking about how refunds were not going to be given with people booked with Lopez and it kinda alarmed me. Its alarming because why or what was he doing to operate illegally to start with? Thats kinda scary you know.

Am I wrong or being bias in this? Can someone ask Alex Beecher to give us an update and/or reason behind it?

Id like to hear an explanation, too. I think The article mentioned sanitation issues, outdated equipment and/or lack of maintenance. But hey, when you offer bargain basement prices, you've gotta cut costs somewhere. I'm sure the Mexican medical authorities are just as disgusted with these facilities that feed the stereotype of Mexican health care and Medical Tourism.

This is why research is SO important, and not just reviews from online forums Checking both surgeon AND staff credentials, ratings and certifications of the facility, verifying suppliers, equipment, standard safety precautions, sterilization techniques, drug and anesthetic protocols are just some of the things i checked out before scheduling my surgery at a facility that meets even the highest U.S. standards.

The bigger issue is that if Alex is putting his 'name' on his BariatricPal Deals and calling these guys 'trusted' providers then there has to be some accountability. Otherwise if one of the doctors on there is taking patients deposits and then getting shut down from doing illegal surgeries then what is to say that all of the doctors on the Bariatricpal deal list are not doing the same? Right now anyone that booked with that guy is out of luck with no refunds and he is still being offered by Alex despite the lack of ethics and BariatricPal members that have lost there money.

To All Members

Our Surgeon is Dr Jesus Martin Lopez Dominguez

The Surgeon in this case is

  1. Clínica Santa Fe Medical Group, del médico Jesús Manuel Báez López

We do not work with this Doctor or Clinica Santa Fe Medical Group

Its so sad that people don't even do their research correctly and don't stop to think that in Mexico there is more than one Dr Lopez

Easy as that just check that the names at least Match

Being as you advertise him as dr. Jesus Lopez, the names DO match. And from his post, sounds like even Alex didn't know the difference. BTW, nice sarcasm...very professional!

I know it's a huge coincidence that the name matches. I am here in TJ and just double checked with the Mexican equivalent of the FDA. It's a different Dr. Lopez. I'd never put my name on the line like this if I wasn't 1000% certain. I will be meeting with our Dr. Lopez later today and will post his credentials so you guys can verify as well.

I figured something didn't smell right about this topic....

AustinJackson's IP address (189.220.27.35) is located in Mexico and is most likely another coordinator. I'm attaching a screenshot of the IP:

Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 3.11.26 PM.png

AustinJackson has also signed up for multiple accounts on or around the same date that they signed up (xixmartoxix85 etc.)

The surgeon that was listed for illegally operating is Dr. Jesus Manuel Baez Lopez (cosmetic surgeon) who is partners with Dr. Sergio Quinones. You can see a picture of Dr. Jesus Manuel Baez Lopez clearly at http://santafemedicalgroup.com/page/dr-jesus-manuel-baez-lopez as well as here:

This is NOT the Dr. Jesus Martin Lopez Dominguez we work with. Here is a picture of Dr. Jesus Martin Lopez Dominguez:

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
