  1. Just wondering if Dr Ariel Ortiz (Onesity & Control Center) is also a highly recommended Dr for Gastric Sleeve procedure? A family member is wanting a surgery done by him but I’m searching for comments and positive feed backs and a little bit of his background. My research find him to be a very good Dr. pls let me know if I can put my nerves to rest. I’m just nervous because we are traveling all the way to Tijuana. Thank you for any info you can give me…
