I would recommend Vision Bariatrics 100% I was taking very good care of and saved thousands of dollars. Hospital was clean Dr. Camelo and staff was great from the drivers who pick you up and take you across the border and back to receptionist and intake! Nurses continually changed my bandages cleaned wounds, very Sterile. And attentive to my needs. No worries very safe.

The doctors at Vision Bariatrics are all attentive to every detail and see you through from beginning to end. The nursing staff are all kind, caring professionals. There is lots of staff, so if you have a question or concern, someone is always there to help. No one is too rushed or too busy to help -- which is often the case in U.S. hospitals. I had an excellent experience and recommend them highly.
