Alejandro Aguirre M.D.
Dr. A was a lifesaver. He took wonderful care of me and his staff is amazing. I strongly encourage anyone interested in having this surgery in Mexico to check into having it with Dr. Aguirre.

I don't really have a story about me to put here. I have been fat my entire life, I was on the verge of death (literally) when I decided to have the surgery. My insurance co said they would not cover it because it was not a medical necessity because I did not have any co-morbidities like diabetes, high blood pressure or any other heart problems. I had bad joints but what fat person doesn't. They refused even though my primary physician "PP" wrote a letter for me to them telling them that if I did not have the surgery that I was going to die because my body was crushing itself and that any given morning I may not wake up because my body crushed my heart. He also mentioned that if, god forbid, I slip and fall numerous bones will break and I may be wheelchair bound from that point forward. Don't you just hate insurance companies? Needless to say I did not have the time to fight with the insurance co to appeal this because the last thing my PP said in the letter was that I probably would not live another year and the ins co said the appeal could drag out 2 years or more. I just didn't have 2 years; I doubt that I had 2 months... So I did a little research and chose a doc in Ensenada Baja California Mexico by the name of Doctor Alejandro Aguirre. He is amazing. The hospital is the nicest I have ever been in, the staff is wonderful, and I am alive and doing better than ever over a year later. If anyone wants to chat about Dr A. or the hospital or whatever drop me a line.
