Hi! I just looked into and filled out the form for BariatricPal MX and got the email for approval! Eek! I am so excited but I was curious how much was the deposit you had to put down to hold your date and how do you pay? Credit card over the phone or once you get there? I know I need to call them for all this but my husband is really nervous about me going out of country for this surgery so I was trying to see how everyone else did it and show him that it's a great place and safe:)

Thanks everyone in adjacent for advice and I wish everyone a ton of lucky in this crazy amazing journey!!! Xo

Hi! I put $500 down and brought a cashier's check with me. Another refreshing thing at Dr. Illan's group wasn't pushy about making sure they had all their money like the US system. My husband and parents were all very worried, but this has been an eye-opening experience. I have never been treated so well by staff during a surgical procedure. My mom came with me and they made sure she was happy-brought her dinner and coffee in the morning. :) There is not much additional cost to bring a companion besides the flight and trinkets so he could come and stay with you in your room. Many come by themselves and seem to do just fine. [emoji16]

I'm scheduled for 8/12 with Dr. Illan and paid the $500 down through my Wells Fargo account. I'll do the same with the remainder the week before surgery.
My wife was initially worried about going to Mexico for surgery, but knows now these are highly skilled people and this is what they do day in and day out.
Good luck!

I'm scheduled for 8/07 with Dr. Illan. I paid 3% extra ($515.00) on my paypal account. I will take a cashier's check with me for the balance when I leave.

Good Luck!
