I had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy with Dr. Manuel Castro in Dallas in 2009. I loved Dr. Castro. He is calm and serene, and most impressive to me, he was very upfront about the fact that there were cheaper procedures, but he wouldn't do them.

He thought I was too large to be successful with a lap band, and told me that he personally wouldn't do one on a patient of my size. I didn't want one, anyway, but I was impressed that he was more concerned with the outcome that the opportunity make the money.

He answers ALL my questions, and I felt both well-supported and well-prepared for the surgery.

Manuel Castro

Dr. Castro was recommended by a general surgeon, after that general surgeon had done some research on the best person to do it.
