I am very impressed with how easy it was to schedule my surgery, and how smoothly everything has gone. The drivers were prompt and courteous. The medical staff was very knowledgeable, efficient, and showed great concern for my well being. I do not speak any spanish, and still found it relatively easy to communicate with the staff. Some do speak english very well. Dr. Rodriguez was terrific. He made sure to check in before surgery to make sure I was comfortable in my decision and had no questions. The StarMedica facilities were very nice. The private room allowed me to rest comfortably. It was a very nice room with plenty of space. I joked with friends that I was beginning to feel like I was on a vacation.
I would be happy to answer anyone's questions via email. It is kind of scary to think of doing any weight loss procedure, and then to select something out of the country adds more doubts to your decision. I am grateful for all the information and links that you gave me though, because it erased my doubts. This information was what I needed to select the best possible Dr. and hospital.
