It has been 3 months since I had the gastric sleeve done with Dr. Almanza and I have lost just over 60 lbs. The experience with Dr. Almanza and the entire staff was amazing from start to finish I was nervous and alone and everyone made me feel at ease the entire time. The procedure itself was so quick and the recovery was such an easy process. I started walking a few hours after my procedure and by later that day I was feeling so much better. I am so amazed by my results and could not be happier with the whole experience. I have struggled my entire life with body and weight issues and i finally feel happy and content. I have followed the diet very strictly and I continue to incorporate new foods into my regimen. I urge anyone that is even considering this surgery to go for it! You will not regret it!! Thank you Dr. Almanza for changing my life forever and giving me the gift of happiness and confidence!!
