  1. Dr Gutierrez was absolutely amazing! He came in and introduced himself before surgery and his assistant who’s also a doctor Dr Singh. Both were amazing gentleman who went above and beyond. We woke up from surgery immediately started walking and Dr. Singh came in and checked on us frequently. Dr Singh is also the one who removed our drain tube and honestly do not be concerned about that experience at all! Most awkward feeling but no pain associated with it at all and Dr Singh was so helpful and explained everything! On our day of check out Dr Singh and Dr Gutierrez came by and checked on us and asked if we had any questions. I was more than impressed with my experience with Dr. Gutierrez and his staff!


    1. Big pillow from home, the hospital pillows are awful

    2. Heating pad

    3. Gas x strips

    4. Tip your nurses as soon as they come in shift. They will check on you more frequently and go above and beyond. They make nothing hourly. We had one nurse that had tears just from $20 bucks but he was the best nurse ever!! His name was Emanuel.

    5. Slippers

    6. Your own band aids

    7. A positive attitude. Not going to lie the few gals we met who were extremely negative and bitter struggled. If you stay chipper, be grateful and thank all the staff not only will they treat you better but I swear you will heal quicker. I’m a firm believer in staying positive no matter the situation.

    I just had surgery on the 4th and am finally home. The experience is one you will never forget and the friends you make are for life. I’m so happy for this second chance and my only wish is I would have done it sooner! Don’t hesitate to ask me anything I’d love to help!

    1. Hi Kelsie,

      I came across you review while researching VSG. I am scheduled to have surgery Dec 19th with Dr. Gutierrez. I am so nervous. Any suggestions to calm my nerves?? How are doing now?

  2. Hi I am going on the 16th of August , Dr Gutierrez will be performing my surgery. They said my surgery will be on the 18th and I will leave on the 20th. Is that too soon to leave? I am nervous enough, as I have never left the US and coming from Boston to boot by myself. Will I manage the travel home that soon after surgery by myself or should I rethink the time frame?

    1. I am looking to do this surgery… But as u said: I never left Boston as well.
      How are u doing?
      How was your expectation there?
      How was the surgery?

  3. My surgery went well with Dr. Gutierrez. I had an amazing experience with the Drs, nurses and other staff.
    Best surgery experience I have ever had.

  4. I traveled by myself for this big journey and was simply 100% satisfied! My drivers and MBC staff, nurses and hospital staff, hotel staff, and my awesome Dr. G were amazing! It was well worth the trip. I would highly recommend them.

  5. I had a very positive experience with MBC. I received the gastric sleeve. My Dr. Alejandro Gutierrez and his staff were very professional and friendly. I was informed every step of the way. They have everything worked out to the last detail so you don’t have to worry about anything. From the minute you arrive to the day you depart. The medical staff was exceptionally attentive and helpful.
    I would recommend MBC and any one of the highly capable doctors for any one of the procedures you may be considering.

  6. Very Professional, caring, nice, and knowledgeable staff.
    I felt safe and cared for the entire process.
    Dr. G and the staff at MBC are 2nd to none

  7. MBC saved my life. My health, asthma and BP were all out of control. Choosing to go to MBC was very difficult and scary, but I was running out of options. I tried every diet and failed over and again. Dr. Gutierrez and his staff were amazing, compassionate and understanding. My only regret was waiting as long as I did to go. 100 pounds gone forever. Thank you Dr G and Staff!
