Tonia Mann - Lap Band Testimonial
Lap Band Surgery – I can’t tell you how pleased I am with my lap band surgery experience in Mexico arranged through MedToGo International. Dr. Joya was wonderful and answered all of my questions. I traveled to Puerto Vallarta with my sister and took five days to relax and enjoy the Westin Spa following my lap band surgery. Even with the vacation for two my expenses were about 1/2 of what I would have paid here in Atlanta, GA.
I have received my after care through Fill Centers USA and I have also been very happy with their services. Unlike most people, it took me eight fills to get to a significant point of restriction. I moved very carefully through my adjustments but initially my weight loss was not the 2-3 pounds a week that most patients experience. But, I am happy to say that about six weeks ago I reached my magical point of restriction and that scale is moving now.
My daughter’s wedding was the initial inspiration for making the decision for bariatric surgery — I just purchased a size 16 dress which will probably need to be altered before the event Sept. 5th. When I headed to Mexixo in November I was wearing a size 24 — that is a major change! But the best part is finally feeling good again — I actually enjoy exercise and going to the gym. I feel so much stronger and excited about being back in the game again.
I researched a lot of companies prior to selecting MedToGo. The fact that you are doctors who have developed relationships abroad made the difference for me. I knew the doctor I would meet in Mexico had been truly evaluated — not just from a sales and marketing perspective. The hospital was great — the nurses were very attentive — and their patient/nurse ratio is much better than here in the US. I would encourage anyone considering surgery in Mexico to contact MedToGo International for no pressure, educated and caring advise on how to obtain medical services abroad. I would still be waiting if I had relied on self pay here in the US — instead I am back to living my life and feeling better each day. Thanks Dr. Page, Dr. Joya, and all the MedToGo staff.
