Customer Reviews

I had my VSG with Dr. Maytorena in December 2017 and he is the best thing that ever happened to me. I have had no complications of any kind and everything has been falling in place. I'm down 76lbs and currently weight 160lbs and still losing. He is one of the best and they are always available whenever I need an answer or clarity on something. My daughter will be going to him this year for the same procedure. I do recommend him to anyone searching out there in his region. He has a great team and the coordinator Reuben is one of the best you can think about. Book them and you will not regret.
