I had my VSG in Cabo San Lucas with Dr. Gerardo Garcia Alvarez 8.23.17. Everything was absolutely above my expectations. From the driver to the nursing staff and of course Dr Alvarez. The facilities were kept immaculate. i never had to wait on a nurse, they were there before I would even need them. Dr. Alvarez was by to check on me personally twice every day. The care far exceeded a typical hospital stay in the U.S. Also the Marriott was very nice, comfortable and clean. I highly recommend Bariatric Mexico and Dr. Alvarez without any hesitation. Amazing experience. Also Cabo is a very beautiful area.

I travelled to Dr. Alvarez in November 2017 and can honestly say it was the best decision I ever made! JC Urrea was our patient coordinator and he set everything up - from the car service to and from the airport, our hotel stay, and car service to and from the hospital. I was unable to lose weight due to health reasons and my local DR recommended I look into Bariatric Surgery to try and bypass the issue I was having. All of the staff at the hospital were so accommodating and literally there 24/7 for anything - I maybe waited a minute and a half after pushing my button in the middle of the night! DR Alvarez was very informative both before and after surgery and made sure I was 100% comfortable with everything!! I am now almost 7 months post opp and down 100 pounds! I would recommend the staff at Bariatric Mexico to anyone!!

Hi Dr Garcia: I am a couple of months post op now and wanted to thank you for a very successful Gastric Sleeve procedure. I have lost over 30 lbs so far and steadily loosing and confident that my goals will be reached. I feel very good, have less issues with blood pressure and have positive expectations for my future. Knowing that obesity will not be part of my golden years gives me peace of mind. I am glad to know that by escaping obesity, it is likely that diabetes and heart issues will not be a problem as well. You and your staff were very pleasant and professional and I have already recommended you and your facility to others.

I am having a procedure to eliminate my heat flutter issues and feel that once completed, my health will be very good. Thank you again for my treatment at your facility. Thanks Dr. Alvarez

My case is like so many people out there, obesity was slowly killing me! I had a degree of morbid obesity 368 lbs. with all the problems of obesity, from social discrimination affects you psychologically, people making fun of me because of being fat!, Being a person with disability to diseases such as Pre diabetes, bone malformation, sleep apnea, immobility, pain and much more!

I knew the damage I was doing to myself, but I couldn’t do it alone. I tried everything! Hypnosis, diets and nothing, I gained weight each time until I had the opportunity to have been guided to a second chance at life. I had Gastric Sleeve surgery in Los Cabos Mexico and my life changed radically, I am now someone else in all aspects, thanks to my Angeles (my doctors) for all your help!! , Your moral support and guidance have transformed my life.

Thanks Dr. Gerardo Garcia Alvarez for all your help. You are amazing.

As of today I have lost 198 lbs.!! I literally remove a person off!

I had the Gastric Sleeve with Dr. Gerardo Garcia in Los Cabos Mexico and I have to say, it was a pleasant experience. The surgery was done at Hospiten hospital, excellent and modern facility, everyone spoke English and the surgery went flawlessly. Not to mention the hotel was included in the package which was in center town of Los Cabos which allowed me to walk around the shops and visit the beach.
