Jan. G. had a gastric band procedure with Dr. Lopez Corvala:
I am doing great. Over the past several months I have lost a total of 35 pounds and 10 inches in the waist. I went from a size 16 to a size 12. I still have 30 pounds to go before I reach my goal weight of 120 pounds. I hope to get there by the end of this year. Five meals a day and small portions is my mantra. I feel great. No more foot or knee pains. I am now riding a bike up to 5 miles a day.
Dean M. had a hair transplant with Dr. Alba Reyes:
I got an excellent value. My procedure went exactly like Dr Reyes said it would. I liked her and think they have a very professional setup. No surprises and no disappointments!¿.
June S. had restorative Dental with Dr. Ceballos:
I wanted to tell you what a great job everyone did. I appreciated the honesty you used working with me and the way you took care of everything. Dr. Ceballos did great work. I appreciate the fact that everyone involved with Dental Travel Guides did their jobs very well and I thank you all very much.
Julie S. had Gastric Plication at Hospital Angeles Tijuana:
My journey started with my Case Manager, Laureli. She was sympathetic and helpful. She made the start for me very comforting and I had absolutely no fears partly due to her reassurance and answering my questions very thoroughly. I arrived at the airport and within 30 minutes my driver arrived and brought me to Hospital Angeles Tijuana. He was friendly and kind about my many questions on the drive to Tijuana. When I arrived at the hospital, I was almost immediately went through the required testing. About 2 hours later I was being wheeled to the operating room. Everything went without a hitch. On the day scheduled to leave, my same driver arrived at the hospital on time and brought me back to the airport. Again, he was patient with my questions about Mexico and other patients that he had driven before. The whole experience was very positive and I would definitely go through Health Travel Guides if I ever have surgery again.
Shaun W. had dental work in Los Cabos:
With Health Travel Guides there was great communication from the very beginning with quick and positive responses to any questions we had. It was my first time traveling to Mexico and I had quite a few questions on what to expect; because they were well versed about the Doctor and the surrounding area they gave me immediate piece of mind. The Doctors, there were actually 3 specialists involved in my treatment, (talk about feeling first class!) were professional and kept me informed the entire time. They only had one week to perform some major work which made for an aggressive schedule all of which they performed with precision and empathy. The entire approach was so wonderfully different from my past dental experiences in that they addressed the root cause of the issues and corrected them; what a welcome change!! Thank you for the referral to Dr. Quintanilla!! I lleft confident with the procedures performed and a game plan for the future as well.
Lori B. had a Tummy Tuck in Mexicali:
After much research, I decided to go with Dr. Gaspar, in Mexicali, Mexico for my tummy tuck. The procedure itself is daunting enough, not to mention having it done in a place I've never been and by people I'd never met. But, from the time I arrived, I was treated with such professionalism and care that my worries soon subsided.
Prior to surgery, I was first visited by the anesthesiologist, and he made me feel very good about everything. Then Dr. Juan Medrano, who greeted me the first day, visited. I wasn't his patient, but he seemed to care for all the patients.
The staff treated us so very kindly, especially Carlo. I couldn't believe how clean the hospital was. The staff cleans the rooms three times a day. Overall, the one person who I was most impressed with was Doctor Gustavo Gaspar. He knows what he's doing, and he makes you feel like you're in great hands. He wastes no time in answering questions, and telling you what you need to do. I was up and about and walking two days after surgery! I feel like a new person, and it's only been a little over a week. I will be back for the leg lift in July, and I know I'm in good hands.
