Dr. Alejandro Lopez Reviews:

My wife Andrea and I would like to thank you and Dr. Lopez and your entire team for everything that you have done for us. You have all gone well beyond our expectations in every way.


My whole trip was great. I was picked up from the airport by Carlos/Charlie right on time. Driving/riding passenger in MX is pretty scary. I don’t think anyone obeys traffic laws! The hotel was superb- one of the nicest places I’ve stayed. I felt more at ease when Nissi contacted me to let me know a bit of schedule.

The next day we were promptly picked up at 7 am and taken to the hospital. As soon as I got there I was whisked away to be weighed and labs drawn. I was then shown to a room where my IV was put in, EKG was done and talked to the anesthesiologist, internist, and lastly DR Lopez. By 8:30-8:45 I was taken the OR. It happened so fast and I am grateful for that bc I couldn’t spend a long time stewing and stressing myself out. I was scared and even told Dr Carlos (what’s good looking man! Lol) on the OR table that I didn’t want to die. He assured me I was in great hands and I would be just fine. I was knocked out right after that. Around 11 I awoke in recovery. My chest hurt pretty bad from the gas. About 30 minutes later I was back in my room. I got up and walked as much as I could and it really helped the pain. Almost every nurse was extremely friendly and spoke enough English so I knew what was going on.

There was one night nurse, Martha that was a little snippy – must have been a bad day for her bc I’ve read else where that she is great. The nurses stayed on top of my pain and nausea meds and I was hardly ever uncomfortable. The hospital was very clean and they stayed on top of it.

It was also very nice to always be checked on by 3 doctors a day. In the US you are lucky to see a doctor once a day.

I was returned to the hotel around noon on the third day. These last few days, the only thing I found annoying was everyone was late (Drs, nurses, Raul the driver). But I understand that everyone was very busy and seemed to be over worked. Raul contacted us all on our last night there to be taken out to revolution for some shopping. He was an hour late, I understand he is busy. But it was a group of 8 of us and the car only held 4 + driver. So myself and 3 other were told to take a van, but we had to pay $30. Not really fair considering the other 4 people didn’t have to pay. That would be my most negative experience.

So overall it was great. I was well cared for and would do it again.

Now personally- I am struggling to get fluids in and am really weak. I keep trying but my tummy just doesn’t appreciate anything I put in it.
So I’m trying new things to try to find something that goes down better.

As of yesterday I’ve lost 19 pounds, so I can’t really complain too much. Haha.
