Not Sure who to Choose - Dr Illan vs Dr. Lopez (ALO Bariatrics)



Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I'm new here. Planning on going to Tijuana to have the Gastric Sleeve procedure done - I have done a ton of research, read reviews, etc. etc. I have finally narrowed it down between Dr. Jalil Illan at Hospital BC and Dr. Alexandro Lopez at ALO Bariatrics. Anyone have any thoughts, suggestions or further info/opinions about these two surgeons?

Thanks,

Stephanie

Hi Lackey,

I had MGB with Dr. Illan in 2016. I had zero complications and was able to lose all of my excess weight in about ten months. Dr. Illan and his surgical team assured me that I would be well taken care of and I was. He was trained by the best surgeons in the world, and is currently working with the founder of the MGB. And he does his surgeries in his own fully equipped hospital.
