"I am writing this review to encourage anyone considering bariatric surgery to trust Dr. Alvarez and his team at the Endobariatric Hospital. I am beyond grateful for the quality of life Dr. A and his team have given back to me. I had my surgery on August 3, 2020 amidst the uncertainty of the pandemic, and couldn’t be happier that I did. With some additional precautions while travelling, my trip was made seamless and I was immediately comforted by the warmth and knowledge of Dr. Alvarez upon arriving at the Endo hospital. The facilities are beautiful and utterly spotless, making the surgery feel more like a vacation than a procedure. Every employee and team member I came in contact with was lovely and made my recovery time enjoyable. Thus far in my post op (3 1/2 months out) I am 62 pounds down, more mobile and more confident than ever. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to proceed with the vertical sleeve gastrectomy or putting my faith in Dr. A. I am so happy with my experience and results, that I would encourage anyone - strangers, family or friends, to seek out Dr. Alvarez. I am a patient who travelled from Canada and would still prefer the treatment (and price) I received from Dr. A over what seemingly little, and expensive options I had in my city. I feel lucky to have found this master bariatric surgeon."
