Dr. Armando Joya Reviews and Ratings

“The entire experience was excellent. I felt like I was in very good hands, the hospital was spotless, the entire staff extremely attentive. I had no issues post-surgery whatsoever. It was like a great vacation. I would recommend Dr. Joya and his group in a heartbeat (and I have).” – Review 5/5 Jann Myers 2009

I had lapband surgery with him in 2008 and lost 60 pounds. In early 2010 (just over a year later) the band started leaking. I didn’t know that at the time, it took almost a year to figure out what was going on, mostly because I don’t have any doctors close to me that understand the band. I went to see him finally last week to find out if it was the port or the actual band. By this time have gained all of my weight back… – Reviewer from ObesityHelp

Dr. Joya and his team were great. My only complaint would be that I don’t feel pain management was addressed as well as it could have been. There were many times I was in pain with no relief. But on the flip side of this, I just had major surgery! The hospital was clean. He has a wonderful bedside manner along with his staff. I would recommend this to anyone who cant get insurance to pay for surgery. – Reviewer from ObesityHelp

I recommend this Dr, He truly cares about you and what he does, his staff also very wonderful and they are there for you. He made a scary moment in my life feel like a breeze. So if you are thinking about going to Mexico to have your WLS, please consider Dr. Joya, he and his staff will make a big difference in your life. – Reviewer from ObesityHelp

  1. Greetings Dr Joya

    You did my Lapband surgery in April 2008. It has been the best sexist of my life! I now weigh 135 and am happy with that. I am writing to ask for a referral for plastic surgery to correct excess skin on upper arms and thighs. I am coming to Puerto Vallarta Decey 5 -19 and would like to have the procedure done then if at all possible.

    Thank you so much for the part you played in chafing my life!
    Did I mention I just found out my daughter Rebecca is getting married ???
    I do want to look drop dead gorgeous !!!
