Patient Reviews and Ratings

“My experience of having the gastric sleeve with Dr. Miguel Navarro was amazing! I originally set up surgery with another surgeon but things didn’t turn out right and I wasn’t comfortable with the situation. Unfortunately I had already took time off from work, booked my flights and had the operating room booked. I found Dr. Navarro and he immediately put me at ease. He was able to hold the operating room and schedule my surgery for the time I had already planned. We face timed which was a relief because any doubts I had were immediately erased.” – Tenisha Smiley
