Who was your Mexico Surgeon?



Recommended Posts

I haven't, to be honest I went with the OCC, cause they were on Operha , Dr.oz and another day time news show.... I would stick to there or with Dr.illan at oasis I think. Why go to the unknown.

WhT is OCC?

Same surgeon for me. He's got some decent YouTube videos as well. It's like meeting your surgeon before you go down there. I'm from Canada, and after our crappy exchange of .76 it totalled $9300.00 . In my opinion you likely get what you pay for, plus a private clinic in Alberta will cost $19,000 and up so it's still the cheaper option.

Arnando Joya. Excellent surgeon. I felt very secure with his skills. HOWEVER, havent received one call or email since surgery. I could be dead for all his office cares. I didnt expect much afterwards, but how freakin' horrible not to at least email and say "how are you doing?" I am seriously pissed about that, but i really am happy with him otherwise.

I am 4 days p.o. I had my sleeve done by Dr. Jorge Reyes Amendola, and could not be any more pleased. I did go through one of the scheduling companies, which I can not recommend, but I highly recommend Dr. Reyes and his team. When you find out about a surgeon you’re considering, research them directly, and not the touring company. I validated Dr. Reyes’s credentials online, read reviews about his medical practice (I didn’t want an MD who ran only Bariatric practice like a puppy mill). I knew no matter where I went, I wanted it done by a gastroenterologist, as they specialize in laparoscopic surgeries, which is most often the cause of complications from Bariatric Surgeries. Dr. Reyes does no more than 3 surgeries per day. On my day, I was the only one. I had full attention pre and post surgery, and recovery. I didn’t wait more than a minute if I needed anything, and I didn’t have to, because they were always checking in on me. I have to admit that the place wasn’t state of the art, but more than well equipped, and everyone spoke English. Lastly, I have direct contact with Dr. Reyes. I have his clinic phone number, cell phone for emergencies, and email. You can’t get that kind of follow-through in the US. Rule of thumb, be your own advocate.
