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!!

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 :(

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.

      I'm new to this weight loss journey and not going to lie about its touch and can be quiet over whelming sometimes.

        I agree, I just came home yesterday from being sleeved and there's so much to get used to. I know I can do this and don't regret my decision at all.

        Not going to lie this is one of the hardest things I have ever done and dare someone to say I took the easy way to weight loss LOL! Hang in there the first couple of weeks are hard. But it gets better 😉
