Alejandro Aguirre M.D.
Dr. Aguirre in Ensenada, Mexico is one stellar surgeon. He has been very easy to deal with - unlike most doctors and surgeons here in the US. He doesn't make you lose weight prior to surgery, he doesn't have you on a liquid diet for 3 months, he doesn't require you to jump through his hoops. He cares greatly about people and obviously takes great pains to ensure we all have a good experience. He is always accessible and goes out of his way to ensure you are doing well. Call him on a Sunday? Yup - I did. And I apologized all over myself, but he was so very kind and caring - AND reassuring. Additionally, his daughter Rosella has taken on many tasks to help ensure the patients are comfortable. She is always available as well. I, like pretty much everyone before me, had a wonderful experience and I truly am indebted to him for saving my life.
Dr. Aguirre is a highly skilled surgeon who performs only 1 surgery a day about 4 days a week. I assume he does it this way because he values having a life outside of work, but he also has more time to make available to his patients outside the OR. The fact that I know he isn't performing more than 1 surgery a day (unless there is an emergency) comforts me and makes me feel like he saves his energy for each patient. Here is a man who knows not to burn himself out.
Dr. Aguirre is quickly forming a fan club of sorts due to his care and skill. Having had this surgery 1 month ago now, the more I read about other people and the ways their surgeries were different, how they struggle with head hunger, how many of them have serious complications, I say now that I would also go back to Dr. Aguirre in a heartbeat. I have had people tell me that even if they had insurance, they would still see Dr. Aguirre. I didn't think I would feel that way, and I have to admit if 100% was paid, I would have indeed stayed local, but if I had the money to pay out of pocket for any surgeon anywhere, I would choose, again, Dr. Aguirre. I feel fabulous in so many ways.
