Salvador Valencia M.D., F.A.C.S.
My Mom & I flew into San Diego on a Sunday. We were greeted by Dr Valencia’s driver & were driven into Mexico to Ensenada. The driver was so pleasant & it felt like we were on a guided tour. He pointed out points of interest & gave us a lot of information as we drove to Ensenada. We went to the Velmar Hospital and that is where one of Dr Valencia’s staff members met with us. Dr Valencia had arranged for my Mom to stay with me in the hosipital room to make things easier for us. The Hospital was very clean & we felt at ease. Later that night Dr Valencia & his partner came to see me. This was the first time I met with Dr Valencia. He was very professional & kind. He explained the entire procedure to my Mom & I and made sure all questions were answered. He explained all the possible complications to us, & made sure we were comfortable.rnMonday morning I went into surgery. I was scared as anyone would be having a major surgery. I woke up after surgery to see Dr Valencia & his partner were in my room with me.rnFor the next 2 days DR Valencia & his partner checked on me several times throughout the day. They treated me like family. The hospital staff was wonderful; even though there was a language barrier they met all my needs. I was surprised at how well I was doing. I was up & walking 1 hour after surgery. The pain was minimal and very bearable. I was at the hospital for 3 days & was then released to go home.rnDr Valencia had his driver take my Mom & I back to the San Diego airport.rnSince my surgery which was 10 weeks ago Dr Valencia has followed up with me via the phone to see how I am doing. I have lost 54Lbs in 10 weeks & have never felt better. I have energy & feel so much better about myself. I have joined a gym & attend regularly. If I had to do it all over I would do it the same exact way. Dr Valencia is the best.rn
