A Note From a Real Patient's Mother:
A few weeks ago my daughter had surgery for the gastric sleeve at My Doctor Hospital. Needless to say, as a mom, I was a little bit nervous about the surgery and the trip to Tijuana but my daughter needed my support so I said I'd go with her.
I need to let you know that it was one of the best experinces I've ever had with a hospital and its staff. Everyone from the nurses, to the doctors, the cleaning staff and the cooks on the 4th floor were kind and helpful. I particulary enjoyed Karin, Carla and Gabby. They were truly angels. My daughter got the best and instant care at My Doctor Hospital, In fact her doctor came and visited her at our hotel room. That does not happen in the U.S.
Now to "the boys" Abraham and Eduardo. Words can not describe how helpful they were. Eduardo came to the hospital to check on my daughter several times, made himself available for questions and went through her medications personally with her. Abraham just did everything for us. We could call him at any hour and he would make time for us. If we needed or wanted to go somewhere, he arranged his schedule so that he could take us. He made the trips over the border fun and interesting. He is a great asset to your organization and I still remember him in my prayers.
Thank you all again for a great experience. I would not hesitate to recommend My Doctor Hospital to anyone. And I loved Tijuana!!

I wish to personally thank you for arranging for my sleeve surgery
on March 15th. Everything went just as smooth as could be. I was treated with the utmost respect from ALL the staff. I arrived in San Diego with no worries. Ricardo was there when he said, actually early. He was such a nice gentleman. Arrival at the Hospital
was also non stressful for me. The hospital staff treated me with such kindness. The nurses were excellent. Then upon meeting the doctor and the way he treated me was just fabulous. To have a cardiologist visit me, and perform the EKG was a pleasant surprise. I believe that recovery from surgery is mostly mental and with no worries, I recovered quickly. It wasn’t long and I was on my feet and walking, as a matter of fact, I started walking the same day as my surgery. I attribute this quick recovery due to not having to stress or be fearful of my surgery. I felt very comfortable and at ease with the staff. The hotel was wonderful. Even the hotel staff were well informed of what my needs were, right down to the waiter in the restaurant. I felt very safe in Tijuana. I have told everyone who asks that A Lighter Me is the way to go, and have nothing but good things to say. KUDOS to A Lighter Me
for doing their best with my care. Everyone was truly concerned with my well being. I just can’t say enough thanks.
I have referred a friend of mine to you. Thanks again Sandy for the best surgery ever. I am now down 12lbs and I know I couldn’t have done this without your and the staff’s assistance. Thanks again!

My experience with A Lighter Me could not have been better! My surgeon
was very caring and knowledgeable. He put me at ease and took very good care of me. I felt like royalty! I am so happy to be losing weight and feeling better. My doctor even thinks I will be able to throw away my diabetes medicine! I am so grateful to the people at A Lighter me.
has lost over 150 pounds!
I am very happy with my surgery and with my surgeon. I felt very well taken care of and like they couldn't do enough for me. I was scared to go to Mexico, but soon found that I had nothing to worry about. The hospital
was gorgeous and very well equipped. I would recommend a Lighter Me to anyone looking to have weight loss surgery.
I didn't start to gain weight until after the birth of my only son, back in 1980 at the age of 22. I have since gained and lost a 100lbs twice. I changed jobs from waitress to nanny about 15 years ago and the weight has really been hard to control without the daily walking around, working hard in the restaurant business. At my highest I weighed 256. About 2 years ago my aunt and uncle had the VSG
. I was very interested in their story. I knew this was the surgery for me! I have health insurance by the way, with Kaiser, with a deductible of $3500.00. I knew that wasn't the route I wanted to go. All the waiting I have heard about with insurance companies, will I be approved will I not be approved, and
6 months of classes and jumping thru all their hoops. Just so they can justify the cost. I started looking up the surgery itself and came across the different companies that go thru Mexico. I called a couple of them based on price alone at that point. I came across "A Lighter Me
". I got in contact with Sandy and I was ready to start my journey. My whole
experience with A Lighter Me was awesome. It was more like a mini vacation with a surgery thrown in. I live here in California only about an hour and a half up from TJ and have been going to TJ all my life for shopping and vacations down to Ensenada and Rosarito Beach. I was very confident with my decision and never looked back. Once I came back from TJ I have stayed in contact with Sandy Johnston and I am so passionate about the service she provides people I wanted to work for her and help other people see that there are options out there for anyone needing weight loss surgery and is not insured or underinsured here in the states. A Lighter Me is always there to answer questions and help when you need it. We will get you there and be there after the surgery to get
you started on your new life!
