Dr Alamanzo or BariatricPal MX?



Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone.

I scheduled a surgery with Dr. Alamanza a few months back and my surgery date is just about 6 weeks away. Since Ive been waiting for my surgery date(I had to wait a little while because I didn't have a passport and had to apply and wait for it), while waiting, I didn't more research and have read some things about dr alamanza and am considering switching to the BariatricPal MX with dr Illian. Dr alamanza is a lot cheaper but I have children so want as little risk as possible.

Dr Alamanza seemed to have a very open schedule, which was helpful because I need to do my surgery around my husband's vacation time from work so he can care for our children while I am gone. Anyone who has used Dr. Illian, do they only do surgeries on certain days? How long did you stay in Mexico before you could return home? If I change from dr alamanzo, they will likely keep my deposit. How much of a deposit did you pay for dr illian? Did you pay the whole price before you went to mexico or did you pay in mexico? I get nervous about sending a lot of money to another country before I even get to the facility. I will do it if needed but would rather make sure I actually get there and the surgery will for sure happen. Any input would be helpful. Ive already requested a quote and am waiting for them to get back to me.

I will be more than happy to answer a few of your questions: Dr. Illan performs surgeries Monday to Saturday depending on availability. Dr. Illan's surgery calendar does fill rather quickly since we only schedule 4 surgeries daily. The deposit to schedule your surgery is $500.00 and you can pay your balance the day of surgery once you are admitted to your private room at BariatricPal Hospital MX.

no to Almanza the butcher. there is a fb page called something like Mexican Weight Loss Surgeons or Weight Loss surgeons in Mexico Thie is a page that does NOT allow anyone to join that is involved with the surgeons, as in, works for thesurgeons in any way. It is a place where people who have had bad experiences can feel free to write about their experiences without hassle. Just google almanza and see what has happened. go with bariatric pal. I hope you are getting the MGB, i've researched it a very long time and it has amazing results, its a short operation and it is reversible and revisable. You get to keep your stomach. good luck.
