45-year-old, Multiple Comorbitities, Insurance Denied - Mexico

After spending $2000 out of pocket, jumping through insurance hoops, then getting denied, I looked I to having the sleeve surgery in Mexico. Best decision of my life! My surgeon, Dr. Valenzuela (aka Dr. V) was the best. I chose her because she has performed over 2500 procedures & has a near-perfect success rate. The staff at Mexico Bariatric Center in Tijuana was great. My coordinator, Leili walked me through every step of the process. I did not feel like there was knowledge I lacked about how the entire process worked. I had zero anxiety. I was well taken care of from the moment I arrived San Diego till the moment I returned to the airport five days later. I cannot rave enough about everyone from the drivers to the nurses to the doctors...everyone treated me like family. One of the most impressive parts about choosing MBC is that after surgery we have free access to Prudence, the nutritionist. She is a priceless gem, who answers all my questions regarding my dietary needs. I am supposed to include cons in this review, but honestly, I do not have a single one. I love my decision to go with MBC & have already referred friends. Here are my stats...
