DR. HECTOR PEREZ REVIEWS
I would recommend Dr. Perez
I have no care about the care I received. Dr. Perez, I like him, he cares about the patients. He speaks great English, and explained everything he was doing and what to expect, although he kind of downplayed the amount of pain I would be in after the surgery. Overall, I would recommend Dr. Perez. I am very happy with my experience… Good luck with your journeys.
I felt very comfortable and capability
I had a great experience in Cancun having vsg surgery with Dr. Hector Perez and felt I should relay my experience to those considering going to Cancun for surgery. I went alone and was a little nervous at first. Dr. Perez put me at ease immediately due to his confidence and assurance. He was very friendly and I felt very comfortable with his capability in performing my surgery… The nurses were great! There were no real communication problems due to the cards that were utilized in the hospital for interpretation. I feel like I was treated very well during my entire experience and I am still quite amazed how easy my recovery has been … thanks to Dr. Perez and the wonderful staff at Clinica Victoria. I am glad I chose Cancun because it was very relaxing and inviting and I had no worries about my safety. Dr. Perez is a brilliant surgeon and this was the right fit for me. My surgery was August 24th and I’m nearly two weeks out and down 14 pounds.
Nothing to worry about
I just got back from being sleeved by Dr. Perez on January 25. My husband went with me. Let me assure you that you have nothing to worry about. Everyone is very kind… He was very informative and gave Lee (hubby) suggestions. Also, don’t be too shy to ask for a pillow for your companion. All of the surgical staff speaks English. The operating room (to which you walk yourself) is very modern. The entire hospital is clean but very small. I am getting ready to post my experience in full so you can read that too.
Thank Hector Perez
Thanks to Hector J Perez Corzo … I am more active now then I have ever been in my life. I have lost a total of 208lbs and my weight ranges from 220-240 and I am now 2 years out from surgery. I no longer take medications for diabetes, high cholesterol or high blood pressure my A1C is 4.75 and I am no longer considered a diabetic. I am thankful that I got a second chance at life and a tool to help me stay on the right path to health
I was sleeved with Dr.Perez on 12/15 and could not have been happier with the experience. I am down 35 lbs and have had zero problems. I do not understand why anyone would want to go to a border town when they can lay on a beach in Cancun. 🙂
Dr. Hector Perez is the best
Dr. Hector Perez is the best in my book. The staff was caring and attentive. I have lost 116 lbs in 1 year. My health issues are gone.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF CHOOSING A BOARD CERTIFIED BARIATRIC SURGEON?
Board certification by the CMCOEM is strenuous. Certification requires applicants to have a minimum of 2 years of bariatric surgical training and experience with 25 procedures performed per year.
CMCOEM requires members to restrict their surgeries to accredited facilities that have passed rigorous scrutiny by independent authorities. Continuing education requirements are strict to ensure surgeons are fully current on issues relating to patient safety as well as the latest surgical innovations.
Those surgeons passing the requirements are uniquely qualified to skillfully perform all aspects of bariatric surgery. Dr. Perez has been certified by CMCOEM since 2004 and attends specialty conferences throughout the year.
