"At 65 years old, the craziest thing I have ever done is travel on my own to have VSG surgery in Mexico. From the moment I stepped off the plane in San Antonio everything was meticulously organized. Most people when they hear of Mexico, they think of crime and how dangerous it is, I was no different. The Endohospital is a few blocks away from the Mexican border. Once onboard the endobus it takes but a few minutes to get there. This hospital is like a 5 star hotel, not only is it beautifully decorated, it is spotless, a far cry from US hospitals. The medical staff take care of all your needs 24/7. All of them speak fluent English and are clearly very educated.
The staff are top notch, but the star of the facility is Dr. Alvarez. Such a humble and truly caring individual, who puts you right at ease through the whole process. His knowledge and skills are second to none. You don’t stay at the top of your profession through sheer luck. It takes years of dedication and hard work. He is continuously learning how to improve his skills.
For anyone looking to change their lives with VSG surgery, look no further, you have found the best surgeon. Good luck on your journey. I will be eternally grateful to Dr. Alvarez and his wonderful team. "
