Who I chose as my Dr in Mexico

Recommended Posts

I know several women in our county who have had the Gastric Sleeve surgery and who they used. I was just about set to go to their Dr but after having a background check done on a few, Dr Lopez Corvala was the only one who sounded solid. Dr Corvala only does 2 procedures a day and with a dedicated team where at least 1 is with you at every turn and on the premises all night if needed. We were picked up and returned at the airport in SanDiego by driver Rafeal . He was a charismatic tour guide with a medical pass that helps immensely when trying to reenter the Us.

When first arriving at the Hospital Angeles the patient coordinator hand delivers you to all testing areas and escorts you to your room. She gave lots of insight into the whole thing. The nurses shifts and things run pretty much like the Us. They were so darling and professional but I got attached to a nurse Maria who took care of me quite a bit. All of the people we had contact with were very traditional and polite. While a few nurses didn't speak English just using goggle translator helped immensely. I think it was even kind of fun. Of course growing up in Arizona I did know lots of spanish but not so much the medical words.

They run an incredible operation and I would trust them with a loved ones life.

Hope this helps someone who may be just looking into who to use in Mexico

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
