Reviews and Ratings
“Dr. Rodriguez Lopez and his team are amazing. My surgery went great and I’m extremely pleased with the care I received. My husband had the surgery after me and chose Dr. Rodriguez as well. We are both satisfied patients & would recommend him to everyone.” – Beth Lowe
“I had my surgery with Dr. Rodriguez Lopez on April 12, 2018. I didn’t get to meet him before surgery as I was the first one scheduled for my date. I had my operation, woke up in recovery about 2 hours after they took me back to the OR. I had no complications related to this operation so far. Dr. Rodriguez came and met me the evening of the surgery and his fellow physician that was doing the post-surgical management was great as well, although I can’t remember her name. Dr. Lopez was great, as are the rest of the surgeons at Mexico Bariatric Center. I would let him operate on me again in a heartbeat.” – Kyler Davidson
“Thank you, Dr. Christian Rodriguez López. My vertical sleeve procedure took place last Friday, November 2nd, and everything went great. I appreciated you and your team, all the staff involved were very professional and kind. Oh…and my incisions are so small that I think they might not even show once cured! Again, thank you very much for your services. All the best.” – Ana R.
