Reviews and Ratings

“I had a revision from LAPBAND to Duodenal Switch. Dr. Esquerra and his staff at Mexicali Bariatric Center were a pleasure to work with. From the beginning, all of my questions were answered. When I arrived, the staff was so respectful and helpful. Dr. Esquerra is such a genuinely lovely man. The hospital was clean, the nursing staff was attentive, and the patient coordinator was almost like having your own mom there to comfort you. I am so thankful to the patients who told me about Dr. Esquerra and Mexicali Bariatrics. I would absolutely recommend to any friend or family member to go to MBC and Dr. Esquerra.” – SmilinsShrinking
