Hello to you all:

I just arrived back home in Canada last night from Tijuana last night. I firstly want to let you know that there are many people going for these surgeries and many with different prices and from $4200 US to 13,000.00. I know that our experience was all inclusive with the beautiful Marriot hotel 5 star raiting I give it we had one over night stay in the clinic and the rest in our hotels which included our food borth soup, popsicles and water daily. Other places did not provide that. We were also shuttled daily for our followup appointments. I was also impressed by the credentials of Dr. Ortiz performing more than 15,000 surgeries speaks volumes to crediblity and being featured in multiple publications makes a huge huge difference. We also had all the blood work done, EKG, nuturtionist wegiht us and provide a food plan for our lives. It was amazing to hear some of the insights the provided me with more leading edge information for helping to attain my goal weight. I saw other professional doctors going for the same surgery so I felt that the level of trust of this clinic was EXCELLENT IN THE PROFESSIONAL WORLD. My sister and I had the gastric sleeve done and we both are very happy. Dr. Ortiz staples 3 x an also sews up the sleeve to ensure no leakage.

What i saw at the airport were many ladies that were coming back from their proceedures and could not believe the differences they shared.

  • WEaring the surgical stockings going home.
  • Prices for the same proceedures varied from $ 4200 to $13,000. My sister and i paid 6000 plus which included our pre post medical care, hospital stay, hotels, our nutiritian at the Marriot hotel and our transportation back and forth and we paid for our airfare.
  • Drinking only vitamin water and gaterade
  • Many of the women did not have water or soups provided for them.

I would like to personally thank all the doctors and nurses for making our stay at OCC heartwarming and caring to ensuring that our HEALTH was # 1 priority while getting SLEEVED.



DR. ORTIZ said this is a tool to help me succeed. This is the real deal folks and I am here to help support those of you going for your surgeries.

Dr. Ortiz and his team are for real.

Hello kstocker:

I am now down 38.9 from my highest weight. i was sleeved on 11/11/2-13 and that is what i lost total. After surgery i have lost 20 lbs since the surgery which is about 2.5 pounds a week.

I ever had any issues. I had the sleeve as most of the people that went had the sleeve. A lot of people did not want to get their stomachs folded as they feared complications from that. I am not sure what the success rate of that but we had the sleeve.

Life is great and looking brighter.
