I was well cared for and impressed by the service I received in Mexico. Do not hesitate to travel to Tijuana for medical care. I had a VSG procedure done on May 18, 2018. My recovery was quick, and I have been losing weight steadily since having the procedure. It's a new way of life and an adjustment, but I am happy with my choice.
