I had bariatic surgery (my lap band finally!!) Dec the 14, 2006. I feel great! This is my best Christmas present I ever had in years, my dream of losing weight finally will come true. I tried millions of diets with no results. I heard Dr. Alvarez was doing great things across the border with Eagle Pass Tx. so I decided to give it a try. His bedside manners and his staff make you feel right at home the moment you get there, believe me! You will soon hear of me when I write again and tell you how many pounds I have dropped off. Merry Xmas!


I had my Lapband surgery done last week with Dr. Alvarez and his team. I am really impressed on his credentials and his training. Most of all you should see his bedside manners and his post-op care! I was less and 20 hours in the hospital before I was discharged feeling great. I had a great time in Piedras Negras, totally diferent border from what I've seen (Tijuana, Laredo, etc.). Clean, safe and pretty. The hospital was great and very clean. Nurse staff very friendly and have excellent service. I felt very secure with my doctor. Thank you so much! Kristy B.


I'm very glad to have met Dr. Alvarez, I can wait to have my surgery done. He has been so kind and has explained every detail of my surgery peronsally. He always answers my calls himself and give his practice that personal touch. :)


Everything was perfect from arriving to the Endohospital up to leaving. Every single staff I encountered was visibly happy to be there and even more happy to help you! Dr. A is pure magic. His hospital is very cozy, clean, and extremely organized. It makes you feel safe and almost even like you’re on vacation! It was a 5 star experience and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a new start to a healthier life! Dr. A is the way!

Doctor A and his team are simply amazing. They kept me informed, encouraged, and comfortable with pre and post op. Their facility is top notch and I consider it to be “5” stars! I researched Dr A for two years and had a personal friend have the operation with Dr A as well. I am so happy I made the decision to have the surgery and more importantly with Dr Alvarez. This surgery has and will continue to change my health and life for the better. Dr A is a top 10 in the world bariatric surgeon. His practice is simply amazing as well as his staff. I would highly recommend the VSG and Dr A to anyone who is interested! Thanks again Dr A for helping me achieve my best and most healthy self!!

Dr. A & his team are incredible at what they do. I researched where to go &, while Endohospital was a little more expensive than other places in Mexico, I never hesitated or was concerned after making my choice with Endobaroatrics. Plus, I couldn't find a single negative review online regarding Endobariatrics (and I DID find reviews for other places that scared me). You would never get this kind of experience in the States and, for that reason, I would never want to do it anywhere else (even in the States). Dr. A is extremely personable & always there for you. I always thought that getting bariatric surgery in Mexico would mean heading to some remote & scary location, never to hear from the doctor again, crossing my fingers that I survive. Quite the contrary- they are your family for life & will help you along your journey. Their state-of-the-art hospital & world class service are nothing short (if not better) than you'd find in the States. Dr. A's YouTube videos give you a good sense of who he is before you go. I think that helps a TON!
