Pompeii Surgical (Dr Quinones)



Recommended Posts

Has anyone previously used Dr Q at Pompeii Surgical? I was approved for the surgery and their In-House financing program and it seems like my only option due to low credit history and No gastric coverage on my insurance. But I'd like to find some reviews that's aren't on their website first.

I was sleaved by Dr. Q on 1/18/17 along with my friend that had a band to sleave revision. Everyone was really nice. Dr. Q is great. I would do it again. Good luck in your journey.

That's awesome to hear! I was approved for the surgery yesterday and just got the contract for the financing. Medical Tourism Scares me but not as much as dying from being so overweight.

I went to Dr Quinones at Pompeii Surgical. He did a great job and the staff was great. The surgery Center was kinda small though. The rooms are not very private and you can hear evervything going on. No private bathroom in the rooms which was the biggest surprise for me. If youb want the place to look like a surgical center in US then this isn't the place for you. It's was very clean though and I can't say enough about the great staff.

MaconMommy, did you end up having the surgery with Dr. Quinones in Tijuana? I'm scheduling mine now. To those of you responded, thank you! How are you currently doing?

That's so great! Thank you for responding. I'm doing pre-op diet now. It's rough. 11 days till surgery. Excitement has now joined the nervousness!

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
