“I had been thinking about weight loss surgery for a couple of years, but my insurance wouldn’t cover it. I started looking for surgeons in Mexico, and I’m so happy I found Dr. Leon. Since day one all the staff has been there for me, all my questions get answered fast, the Dr. Is very knowledgeable and caring. My surgery anniversary is coming up soon and I couldn’t be happier. I look and feel great, totally recommend!” – Danielle M.
