I first heard of Dr. Alvarez as I was searching you YouTube for videos regarding weight loss surgery. This is the first time I had heard about the gastric sleeve. Everyday for months I researched different surgeons and weight loss procedures in the U.S. and outside of the U.S. My husband is a surgeon and I had him look at all information as well. By far, Dr. Alvarez was the most experienced in this procedure and had a phenomenal success rate. From the first phone call I made (Thank you Susan) the whole process was flawless. Once we arrived in San Antonio the transport to the facility was very pleasant (Thank you Rosie). We arrived at the hospital and Dr. Alvarez was the first to greet us. We met the whole surgical team and I had no concerns about proceeding. Dr. Alvarez' assistant was always very attentive of his patients (Thank you Jessica) and after the surgery she was a wonderful walking buddy. I had no discomfort or pain after the surgery. I felt completely normal. Many people are fearful of going to Mexico from what is published on the news all the time. Piedras Negras is a very pleasant town. No one should fear coming to Piedras Negras. I 100% enjoyed my trip! It was surgery and vacation in one.
Dr. Alvarez holds a yearly patient reunion in the states to keep up with everyone and their progress. I have yet come across another surgeon who does this. I am a month out from surgery and have lost 26 pounds.
The surgery has changed my life and the way I look at food. The anxiety I felt about eating is not there anymore. I enjoy my meals, but the small portions I eat are more than enough to satisfy. Thank you Dr. Alvarez!! Thank you for helping so many individuals reach healthy weight goals for healthy living.
