Patient Reviews and Ratings
“Yes, it crossed my mind, that maybe they are just pushing Dr. Lopez. But telling someone the surgeon they want has had fatalities is a pretty gruesome lie. If it’s the truth… I’m glad they told me. If it is not the truth… I’m not sure how to find out, and obviously, I would switch coordinators.” [Source]
“Honestly, this is not a negative review. It is just an honest one. Yes, I had a complication but Dr. Garcia acted fast to take care of the problem. The hospital was very nice/clean/beautiful. The nurses were sweet but didn’t speak much English (use google translate- download it on your phone before you go to Mexico). There is nothing scary about the Marriott. There is nothing scary at all about Tijuana if you just go for your surgery and stay at the hotel.” [Source]
