Juan Lopez Corvala
I wnet thru \"beliteweight.com\" for my surgery. They are coordinators for this hospital. And very wonderful people. They take good care of you. On their site is info about the surgeons and hospital.rnrnI met Dr. Corvala soon after i ck'd in at admitting, while in the waiting room of the hospital. He was very nice and i felt comfortable with him right away. Our meeting was short but i felt he was sincere about my health and the surgery. I did not meet with him again until i was being prep'd for surgery. All of the staff seemed very competant in their duties. Dr. Covala and his staff do A LOT of these surgeries every day and it seems to run like clock work. Various members of his staff ck'd on me often before and after surgery. Beliteweight was the coordinator for the surgery and their staff in Mexico also came by to ck on my and fill me in on everything. Dr. Corvala's physiciatric Dr. came by the day after surgery to assess how i was doing mentally and to evaluate how she thought i would do after i got home. That night, Bibi, with Beliteweight sent me my discharge paperwork that included the seriel number and info pertaining to my \"band\" and my perscriptions for aftercare pain. I thought that my pain meds to bring home with me would be covered in the cost of the surgery but were not. No big deal tho. My driver stopped at a pharmacy on the way out of Mexico and i was able to pick them up myself. My meds came 4 tabs to a box but i was able to purchase as many as i needed. And was able to buy generic ones. The cost was very reasonable. rnSome have said the language barrier can be a problem, but they give you a sheet of paper with common statement, questions, problems etc... with spanish translation. I didn't have to use it and was able to communicate just fine. There are English speaking personnel there, and they will find one for you if needed. The hospital was BEAUTIFUL & CLEAN!!! Everything was state-of-the-art. I would have surgery in their hospital again. Everyone was very professional and considerate.

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I have battle my weight since i was a child, and been on pretty much every diet know to man. I would lose some, get discouraged or find it too difficult to stick with and would gain back what i lost plus more. I have been looking at bariatric surgery for about 10 yrs. and insurance would never pay for it and i couldn't afford to self pay. So as years went by i just continued to gain and my life deteriorate.
