Dra. Almonte Too Busy for My Liking..
I haven't had any procedures done with Dra Almonte...
I was originally planning on having surgery with a different doctor in Dr that was recommended to me by a very close family friend (and her results are good don't get me wrong) but I communicated with this doctor and felt like I got nothing but a cold shoulder. He rushed me and kept brushing me off not giving me any straight answers. My search for a good doctor began . I've done tons of research and I had decided on either Dra Duran, Dra Robles or Dra Almonte. They all give absolutely great results. I requested a quote from all three and Lesley(Dra Almontes assistant) responded immediately and I was able to get a quote the very same day. I recieved an email from Duran and Robles within 24 hours requesting I fill in questionnaires. I submit them and recieved my quote from Robles in 48 hours and have yet to hear back from Duran. By then, I was already decided on Dra Almonte and I know she is the one for me. I love that she isn't afraid to work with bigger women. And they look AMAZING after if I do say so myself. I also love that she only schedules 3 max a day 3 days of the week. This is great to know because it means she won't rush on me to get to her next patient and she will also have free time in the week to follow up with me. I am impressed with how responsive her assistant is given how busy they may be and how many inquiries they may get in a day.
So this is it. I've chosen June 8th as my sx date but I would have liked a sooner date. (If anyone would like to switch dates, I'm open ;D ) ..And now the real journey begins.. I plan on losing at least 20 lbs before surgery to ensure better results. I'll post updated pics after my weight loss :)

Haven't heard back from Lesley...
I spent 10 days in DR visiting family and since I was already consulting, I decided to consult with Dr Sabala. I had already witnessed first hand what he is capable of and let me tell you, he is SKILLED. First impressions for me tend to stick most of the time but I had this guy ALL wrong from our first convo on whatsapp. He was patient and really listened to what I wanted. I like that I didn't feel rushed in his office unlike Dra Almonte who barely had time to catch her breath. While I was there he was able to size me up and promised my results would be fantastic(if I decided on him). He is very detailed on his consults and you can tell he sincerely only wants the best results for his patients without taking any health risks. He stated he would be able to give me everything I wanted all in one visit as long as my hemo levels were up to par, as we all know. I was surprised to hear that it would be possible and now I am even more eager to finally get this done. I insisted on losing weight first but he said I was good to go if I wanted it sooner :D .
Decisions, decisions.... I'm stuck in a tight spot right now because I absolutely love the work of Dra Almonte but she is a very busy person and can not dedicate the time I was hoping for in a surgeon. She is a sweet heart but Dr Sabala is one too. Plus, he commits so much more time to his patients and the follow up care with him is superb. I'm still so confused! Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Getting Surgery Summer/2016
Almonte in December Anyone?
I finally spoke with Lesley who gave me the dates of dec 1,5,12 or 15. I spoke with my supervisor at work and was able to get 3 weeks ooo from dec 5th. When I returned to Lesley with this information, she said she only has the 20th of dec now x( I'm afraid if you want Dra Almonte, you need to book 1 year in advance now... I will be speaking at my job but I don't think they will be okay with the date since the holidays are around the corner.
With that said.. Anyone want to switch dates? Please???
Won't be going with Almonte
Maybe I'll do round 2 with Dra Almonte if I feel I need some more work but idk if I will cuz I've seen Sabalas work first hand and its incredible.
Dra. Almonte seems to be way too busy for my liking.. I need more attention than that which she can offer right now. I know she is one of the best at what she does but for a procedure as delicate at this one, I would like to know I can count on getting a call back the same day if an issue arises. If I could wait for her to perform on me during one of her less active times I would, but I can't because lately, it seems like she doesn't have one...
