My impression of Dr. Alvarez was very positive. Prior to arriving in Mexico, his "right arm" Susan helps with answering questions, literature, and travel points. My journey from NY to Mexico was a bit of a culture shock, and happened so fast.
Once you arrive, Dr. A's team facilitates every step, in perfect autopilot. Meeting Dr. A and Dr. Rosales the morning of surgery was a very professional experience. They are both very respectful about your well-being, and hope to lose weight. Their team immediately prepares you via labs, xray and admission. The surgery was less than 40 minutes and the recovery was, for me, seamless. There was no nausea, no significant pain (except incision soreness) and no drama. The first day was simply rest, second day allowed me to manipulate mobility around the soreness and eat ice chips. By the 3rd day/discharge, I was eager to eat my Jello and juice.
Dr. A's team had round-the-clock handholding. They constantly checked on my vitals, pain/comfort, and sleeve consistantly. The information packet provides life-long data and is very helpful as a daily reference. Dr. A provides you with your Surgical Report and plenty of meds when you leave. While I am still in my 1st week postop(as of this writing), I hope to follow the program set by him diligently.
I truly recommend Dr. Alvarez- he always displayed tremendous bedside manner and is impressively sympathetic to each and every patient's welfare and care.
