Amazing experience with Dr Maytorena

I got sleeved April 18, 2017. My experience was phenomenal, but I only got to meet him once, for about five minutes. He seemed shy, but very professional and concerned. I felt very comfortable in his care. His staff of nurses and doctors were great. I recovered very fast from surgery and hardly felt any type of pain. I feel lucky in this regard. I felt as if I were the most important patient...

40'ish Y/o W/four Children Ready to Get my Life Back

I don't even know where to start with this! This has been a journey to say the least. I wish I could say that I had a lot of fun getting fat, but that's the furthest thing from the truth!
