As soon as I inquired about this facility I received the best care from beginning to end, from the coordinators to the hospital staff, the drivers, the surgeon. I can’t believe it took me so long to find this place but it was well worth the money spent and zero complications. No relevant pain. Vsg Oct. 2021. I would do it all over again but hopefully I do my part and don’t have to. Thank you so much everyone at MBC especially Dr. Rodriguez. You have really changed my life 💕

Dr. Rodriguez Lopez was my surgeon and I had the Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy done in July 2020. That was 13 months ago and I am THRILLED with my results. Dr. Rodriguez Lopez and the awesome coordinators, nurses, and administrative staff at MBC gave me so much more than high-quality medical care; they gave me my life back. Go here to get your surgery and thank me later.
