To give you a brief background, I have suffered with weight gain throughout my entire life. Going back to my teen age years, it was very difficult to lose weight and it took me over a year to lose 30 lbs. That year was the year I dieted very strictly and unfortunately would starve myself to lose the weight. Years later, I got married and had my two beautiful babies. After I had my daughter I decided I had to take control of my weight. My weight was affecting my personal life, mentally, physically, emotionally, and my professional life as well. For me to make my decision on having the surgery Gastric Sleeve with Dr. Dr. Mario Almanza, it took me about two years. I was so doubtful of myself, and not being able to go through the process. My aunt had her surgery with Dr. Dr. Mario Almanza as well, and was having amazing results. I finally took the decision to begin this journey of a healthier life, with confidence, and courage. I scheduled the surgery and the process was very smooth, and easy. The staff was very helpful and answered all of my questions, concerns with ease. Everything the staff explained from the beginning of scheduling the surgery to the moment I was picked up at the airport, until I was heading back home was perfect. I felt safe because everything went just as they explained. I had my surgery on June 25th with Dr. Mario Almanza, and the staff and nurses phenomenal. My nurses were Christian, Miriam, Eyda, Jocelyn, Alma, Mario, and Viayme. If I misspelled anyone's name or missed anyone, I am truly apologetic. The staff, the nurse, Dr. Mario Almanza, and everyone at this facility deserve a 5 STAR REVIEW! I could not be happier, or healthier with my decision of having the Gastric Sleeve. This is a decision I took, and I am very thankfully I decided to go with Dr. Mario Almanza and his exceptional staff. Take it from me, do not delay your surgery any longer, this is a life changing decision worthwhile.
