Yes, I am back from my surgery in Juarez and it was an amazing experience. Despite a rough flight out there, it was amazing! The flight was over 3 hours late getting into El Paso but the surgical staff patiently waited for me. Dr. Elmo Aramburo decided to do the surgery because he wanted me to stay at the hospital as long as possible and I'm glad he did so. Into the early morning hours they operated on me. I honestly felt so at ease and very little pain. The staff was so attentive and nice to me. Dr. Elmo, Dr. Rafael and Dr. Calderon, were outstanding. Upon meeting and speaking with them, I knew I have made the right decision. The hospital reminded me more of a hotel, it was very nice.
I was so frazzled from the trip over there, but they immediately put me at ease. The driver, Sergio was also a gem and he took me to get some broth for the long trip home. I honestly have had flights to Europe that have taken less time! All I can say was everything was top notch and I can't say enough good things about the staff and care I received.
I am already down 14 pounds including what I lost from the post op diet* I have very little pain, very little hunger, and very little discomfort. My family could not believe how healthy I looked when I came home.
Please pass along to the doctors and staff at Star Medica, as well as to you and your wonderful staff, my sincere thanks and gratitude in saving my life.
