Dr. Ariel Ortiz and Dr. Martinez reviews on his website is magnificent. Obesity Control Center" International Center of Excellence. He's done more than 12,000 surgeries. He's also been on the show, "Doctor's and Opera." Many people says, he's very nice and knows what he's doing. Really good bedside manner. He's also nice to look at...hehehe, so handsome. Anyhow, I am seriously considering him.

Time to "Lighten Up" in the Second Half of my Life!

Dr. ARIEL ORTIZ at the Obesity Control Center in Mexico gets an A+ and a round of applause from me. Not only is he a skilled surgeon, he is a skilled people person. He treated me like family. He even invited my husband to join him for lunch when my surgery was finished and I was in recovery. His staff gets an A + as well.

Sleeved and Satisfied - Tijuana, MX

The staff at OCC (Obesity Control Center) was competent and caring. Dr. Ortiz greeted me with a hearty hug upon meeting me and my surgery went wonderfully. The hotel accommodations (included in the price of the surgery package) were lovely & upscale.

Sleeve Revision Surgery - Mexico, MX

Everyone involved with Dr. Ortiz office took great care of me, answering questions, making sure I was comfortable with my decision. The OCC hospital is beautiful, well run, very clean and nicer then any US hospital/surgery center I've been in. Dr. Ortiz placed my band several years ago - I did all my research and choose him. When it came time to have a revision, he was my first and only choice!
