Dr. Juan Corvala Reviews:

Amazing experience. Everyone was so helpful. The hospital staff was on top of everything. All my questions and concerns were taken care of. I had several surgeons in the operating room, so I got to meet everyone, including Dr.Lopez. They were very open and honest about everything. Aftercare is harder because the procedure was in Mexico, but they provided me with a list of doctors who were willing to follow up with my care in the States. – Review From ObesityHelp 2008

…Dr. Corvala uses JP Drains after his major procedures. Some doctors don’t, and while he does it to make sure you’re not getting infected, the device can be a major obstacle to persona hygiene while still in the hospital. It was the only thing that kept this experience from being what I might call “easy.” – Review From ObesityHelp 2011
