I had a great experience and have no complaints about my trip to Mexico for surgery with Dr. Almanza. The staff was excellent all the way through. There were times in the beginning where I questioned my decision to have surgery. My bad habit was food. I depended on it. When I was unable to depend on it to get me through a stressful day at first, I became depressed. It is no different than quitting smoking cold turkey. I physically could not eat the things my mind wanted me to eat when I wanted to eat them. Thank goodness!!! My gastric sleeve helped me break this terrible habit! Now, 5 months down the road I don't get excited to eat and I don't think about what Im going to have for my next meal right after I ate a meal. I eat to sustain health and life, the real purpose of food. Thank you Dr. Alamanza and staff for providing me with this fabulous life change! I am forever greatful!
