Dr. Francisco Gonzalez and/or Oasis of Hope - Any Feedback?



Recommended Posts

He did my sleeve surgery in September. I had a really good experience! He was very friendly and the staff is nice and hospital is clean. My nurses however did not speak very much english.

11/05/19 I had the gastric sleeve procedure done at Oasis of Hope w/ Dr. Francisco Gonzalez. I can’t say enough WONDERFUL things about him, the rest of the staff, and the hospital itself. Better medical care than I have received at any hospital in the states. Highly recommend!!

@Confoozed84 Thank you! My surgery was rescheduled and is now 3/27. I’d love to know details about the hospital, doctor, staff, etc. Thank you!

I ended up canceling my surgery at oasis of hope..do to unforseen circumstances. I have nothing bad to say about them...they refunded my deposit.. Now I'm going to Mexico Bariatric Center on June 6th. I believe things happen for a reason.. I started my 1 week diet. I feel bad a ate a healthy Protein salad...but now I start my liquid diet and im ready👍

I knew something wasent right.. I procrastinated. .my pain wasent getting better but worse..a horrible pain in front shoulder, uncomfortable feeling under left rib. I can all so say the drs here in the states frown on us going to mexico...i figured due to money. Comes to find out it has more to do with cleanliness and safety measures.. I have a feeling it's going to be a long battle.. 3 weeks out can hardly hold an oz of food .. I just want to get healthy ! Resume my life..

How are you doing Sweetsmith78 ? Been thinking about you, hope you're doing better :) I'm getting to leave July 3rd for surgery on the 4th at Hospital BC with Dr Illian and with your story it's making me nervous :(

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
