Mario Alberto Almanza-Reyes
My first impression of Dr. Almanza was that he must be a very busy man. I only got to see him twice. Once when we were out and about and once because he came in to take a picture with my mom and me and our lapbands. He didn't speak clear English, but there are alot of translators. My impression didn't change until my mom had to come back again due to a hole forming on her stomach tissue. She came back home second time with deadly infections, a hole in her stomach, 5 abscess, and pnemonia in her lungs.. then I didn't like him too much. His office was VERYY small and looked like the rooms looked like rooms in a house. I didn't like that he wasn't very social with anybody. Future patients should know that there has been alot of cases around the United States and Canada of the same thing that happened to my mom. People coming home with deadly infections. The only aftercare info that they really gave us was to be on a clear liquid diet for four weeks. When I got home, I learned alot more about this procedure that I didn't know when I was going there. I didn't know that you have to get this lapband taken out every 5 years. I didn't anything and nobody informed me on anything. Overall, I would rate him high for being nice... but really low when it comes to medical care.
