Anyone use Dr Guillermo Alvarez?



Recommended Posts

I'm researching potential surgeons and was curious if anyone's had surgery with Dr Alvarez lately? Or within the past 2 years. I'd love to know your experience.

My cousin had surgery with him last month, and has nothing but positive things to say. She personally knew a number of people that all raved about him and his practice as well.

Hi, I don't know if you had made a decision for which doctor to use. I'm scheduled for VSG surgery with Dr. Alvarez on June 15th. From all my research he is the best in the business, I can let you know how it goes so you can make an informed decision.

I will be using him in the fall hopefully. I have heard nothing but great things and know 3 people who have personally went to him. Check out his “ask Dr A” shows on YouTube. He also has Snapchat and instagram that he and his psychologist and dietitian post on daily. Very informative things. Check him out!

Update!! I did have my Surgery on June 15th and it was a great experience from start to finish. I went alone and I was a little scared, but the fact they pick you up in San Antonio and that take you across and then bring you back seriously makes everything sooo much better. Its also awesome that you spend the whole time at the hospital now that he has the new facility so you have nurses there 24/7. They were super awesome with my pain management and there was always someone there to help when I needed it.

My recovery has been a breeze and I don't know if that's because I have a high pain tolerance or if it was just because Dr. Alvarez did such an awesome job. I had the normal pain after but within a week i was feeling a lot better.... Over all my experience was everything I could hope for from start to finish.
