But don't take our word for it. Here what our past patients have to say about how their live have changes since their surgeries.

“Many people decide that just beginning the process of change is too much effort. I’m so glad that I chose to make a change and transform my life. I pray this inspires you. It’s not where you came from, it’s about how adamant and focused you are that’s really important. Thanks to my doctor and a very special friend who introduced me to my new life. I am forever grateful to Dr. Alejandro López.”

Bishop Tyear

“I had my gastric sleeve May 5, 2014. I’ve lost 95 pounds and couldn’t be happier! Thank you so much Dr. López! You’re an amazing doctor! I had a great experience and am so glad I chose you!”

Jessica Jalovec

"Three (3) years ago I decided to make a change in my life.. It wasn’t just a physical transformation but it turned out to be more than that. Now I'm in my own skin. The insecurities I used to have, that used to prevent me from being the person I really was, all along are now gone. I've definitely bloomed!!  I sure have changed! I’m ME now and enjoying life to the fullest!!"
