Decent accommodations, fast recovery, overall great value as compared to the US. I had my procedure done in late March of this year and I'm down 60 pounds. One of the best decisions I made and no regrets. I highly recommend their services.

I was so scared of going to Mexico to have this surgery. People talk about having surgeries in Mexico but I can say this place was amazing. The Doctors are so personable and friendly. They explain everything before the surgery and check on you each day. They show you thru x-ray you new stomach and make sure you can swallow. The staff is so nice and the hospital is very clean. You have cleaning staff everyday to make sure you room is freshen up with a good scrub and new towels. They take every measure to make sure your surgery is smooth from blood work to compression stockings to prevent blood clots. I am so pleased with the surgery and don't regret putting my own fears behind me and going for it. I would recommend this to anyone who wants this type of surgery. The transportation to and from the hospital was great. Easy through the border. This is a top notch hospital and doctors. No worries at all. Even had 2 channels of English speaking. After words they call you to check and make sure your doing ok. If you have any questions they say to call them. they are the most helpful people I have ever met. Your not alone they are with you every step of the way. You follow their guidelines and the diet you will have great success and that is what this place is all about. I can't say enough about them. Great Place and excellent staff.Can't hardly wait to see the new me and get my health back on track. thank you

Starting with Jessica and ending with our driver who got us through border security in record time, the experience was superb!
I had thought about doing the surgery for a long time, but made the decision rather quickly. I had asked to get scheduled within 3 weeks and Jessica made it happen.
The medical staff at Hospital Angeles were extremely attentive and very informative of every step from surgery to recovery.
The facility was immaculate! Food for my guest looked delicious (he said it was...I was on yummy broth!)
I am so grateful for every person who made this possible! Even the room service, the cleaning staff, and the wonderful doctors and nurses! Especially the graveyard staff for making my nights comfortable and always being a press of the button away!

Very good company. I went to Mexico to have gastric sleeve surgery and I’m a very big guy. Over 500 pounds.. the doctors are great and the hospital in Juarez Mexico is great. Very nice and very surprised on everything. They treated me like a king there. Very nice people and respectful to you. Most spoke great English and never had a problem communication with anyone. Very clean and everything. Easy ride over the border not a big deal at all. I highly recommend them over any hospital in the states. I promise very good people and the doctors are the best. Dr Rodriquez is one of the best in the world. People come from all over.... he’s the best. Do not hesitate.

From the moment I got in contact with Jessica to the moment I found myself home after surgery, my entire experience with BeLiteWeight has been nothing but a pleasure and joy. I contacted Jessica over 2 years ago, discussed surgery for my gastric sleeve, financials, and all the Dr. Rodriguez offers. I saved up, watched his utube of the surgery and in July 2019 I was able to contact Jessica with the green light to put me on the schedule. She remembered me from over 12 months prior! I was so impressed by that. Their customer service is top notch. My Airport to hospital transportation went off without a hitch even though we had an unexpected 2hr layover and delay in arrival time. Their driver was at the airport waiting for my husband and me. The check in at the hospital in Juarez,Cuidad Mexico was simple and efficient. All of the hospital personnel that I dealt with spoke English. I am a nurse myself and my Mexico hospital experience puts American hospitals to shame. The staff was polite, courteous, happy, friendly and helpful each and every encounter. My husband and I studied all of the pre op and post op diet materials and I ordered my clear liquids with 20grams of protein on Amazon before our trip. I was given around the clock pain medications and anti nausea medications without having to ask for it! I had my surgery on 8/9/19. I have not had one single episode of nausea or vomiting. I stopped my pain pills by 4 days post op. I am up and moving, losing 2lbs a day, sipping on my 20gram bottles of clear liquids. I am getting 40grams of protein in 32ounces/2 16 oz bottles daily. Premium protien clear protein drink for 17.00 a case on Amazon. All in all I feel great and am going back to work soon. Total of 2 weeks off because I have to drive with my job and I want to be sure I am at top notch before jumping back into my demanding job. The whole experience has been wow, i am doing this, wow i did this and WOW it wasn't nearly as scary or as bad as I thought it would be! I completely believe that my excellent experience is due to BeLiteWeight and Dr. Rodriguez expertise in their start to finish compleye surgical experience. I am so glad I found Jessica and kept her information on my bulletin board for the last 2 years! 227lbs- 8 days later 213lbs. Age 53. Female.

Very organized and will answer any questions you have (BeLiteWeight). They make the whole process so easy. I had such a great experience. Hospital Angeles was so organized as well from my ride to the airport and on my way back they had everything together and ready and kept me informed on each step. I was visited by the doctors twice before surgery and twice after, also the nutritionist came to see me, the nurses explained every step as well.Everyone was very pleasant no flaws in this process. BeLiteWeight reached out to me afterwards to check on me. I am very happy with the choice I made. O btw if you have questions about the hospital it’s beautiful, clean, everything is in English and Spanish and all the staff assisting you speak English really well or enough to where you can understand. Your room is cleaned daily!

Before I went, I followed the pre op diet. I didn't want any complications and it worked. I went with an open mind too. I met my friend in El Paso who flew in from San Diego who had a similiar Gastric operation and spoke spanish too.
We both were so impressed on how nice the rooms were.Just like a resort. White slippers and large towels, along with shampoo and all the goodies. Shower was tiled in marble and glass. Great view in all the rooms. Really nice. I got done with the blood work and ex rays and we took off to find a resturant to eat that big last meal. There are so many nice people there. We were trying to find out how to call a taxi and ended up having a security gaurd out to lunch give us a ride to a fantastic resturant. We enjoyed what we ate and had fun listening to the Mariache band. The manager said that if we needed a ride back that he had an employee getting off work that would give us a ride back to the hospital. So we did! Such nice people.
Back at the hospital, everything was different as far as care. You weren't bothered by anyone except the ones who either needed blood, or to give meds. Everyone introduced themselves coming in and what they needed. Then the operation went well. The Dr's explained everything ahead of time and then afterward I was able to go to the xray machine and watch how my new stomach worked. It made a lot of sense, once it was showed and explained. I know I made a great choice going to Beliteweight for my surgery. They really took care of me.

To start off, when I told my friends and family that I was thinking about getting weight loss surgery in mexico, they freaked out!! I was 100% ready and comfortable in doing the surgery with beliteweight. My first phone call was to do the procedure thru my insurance. I spoke with Sharon (she was great). Then I found out I didnt qualify and how long it would actually take to get it done thru insurance, I didnt want to wait. So then I started to talk with Jamie (she has been amazing). But let me go back a second, when I first sent in the info to show them I was interested I got a personal call from the owner, Joanne!!! All of these ladies are so informational and aren't pushy at all, and I loved that! So I scheduled my surgery for July 18th and i was also contacted by Ginger & Sofia...all amazing!! I was able to get financing thru them and boy was I ready!! So I booked my flight and I flew in on the 17th. I was picked up from the airport and taken to the hospital for testing before surgery. Blood work, xrays and EKG. Then I got to go for "My last meal" 🤣. I forgot to say that the hospital is very high security and in a great place. When I got there I was greeted by one of the doctors!! Just to make sure i didnt have questions or concerns and to let me know what was going to happen. Ok, I'm from California and any surgery I've had I have NEVER been greeted by a doctor to make me feel comfortable!! Just saying!!! Then I hung out in my room for the rest of the night. The rooms, are pretty nice!! Your the only one in your room and it's got a very nice bathroom and a beautiful view!! I even got a free lightning show!! So then the next morning around 8:30, Dr Rodriguez and his team come in to see how things were going and if I had any questions or concerns! Still at this point I am amazed at how caring and helpful everyone is. And I went to mexico by myself (another reason people thought I lost my mind) and I'm glad I did...never felt uncomfortable AT ANY TIME!!!! But I also didnt want to worry about anyone I brought being hungry or tired or taking care of them selves. They came in for me at 12:00 PM and I was back in my room, I think around 3:00 pm. That night on of the doctors again came in to see if I needed anything or had questions. I was up walking that night, and i wasnt to bad from the actually surgery, but the gas was terrible, but expected! The nursing staff was really great too and I never had a language problem. I saw the doctor the next day and went for a leak test, things looked great and I got to see just how little my "pouch" is. The day that was to go home, the docs came in and removed the bandage that was for the drain I had and things looked great...so at 11:00 am i was again picked up and taken to the airport! So July 18th 2019 was my surgery date. I am down 13 lbs, and I'm doing amazing!!! Do NOT hesitate to ask questions and trust in this company!!! Beliteweight changed my life!!!!

My experience with BeLite was amazing from the very beginning to end.
First, I'd like to note that even from the first point of contact, my experience with them was great. They had contacted me about 45 min after I first inquired which is usually not common. They helped me so much with the planning an execution of my surgery and I could not be more grateful. Throughout the planning phase I spoke to a quite a few of their staff members and EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THE WAS AWESOME. They are ALL knowledgeable, helpful and patient. They gave me their best options and were very on top of getting everything taken care of. They kept in contact and had great communication throughout the entire process.
Now for the actual facility and procedure... also, I am more than satisfied with that as well. The facility was amazing. Very comfortable, safe and clean. Going to another country for a procedure can be a bit scary nut once I touched down at the airport they were extremely punctual with picking me up and escorting me to the facility. The staff were all great and the procedure was done quickly.
A week after the procedure BeLite contacted me and to check in and see how I was doing. They even sent me some multivitamin patches! These people genuinely care for their clients and it shows. I worked in hospitality for 12 years and I know good and sincere customer service when I see it, and they definitely have it. I would 100% recommend BeLite to anyone who is looking to have something like this done and if I need any further assistance with procedures in the future they will for sure be the first ones I contact!

I started my weight loss journey in November 2018 at age 59. For years I had tried to lose weight. Until I turned 50 I never experienced weight issues. Blood work was fine with the exception of high cholesterol. After researching the various weight loss centers and options I went with BeLiteWeight. This is because they were responsive, had good reviews and the cost was reasonable. In all honesty I was borderline as far as my BMI level. Once approved things went fast. I rarely travel so not only was it foreign for me to travel but to venture to another country was an experience. Fortunately, I have always had an adventurous spirit so I bit the bullet and made reservations to fly from California to El Paso. Once in El Paso I was picked up by shuttle and driven across the boarder into Juarez, Mexico. My reservations were for early February. Even before departing I was provided a pre-op diet and post-op diet. If I had any questions my patient counselor, Lejla, was reachable. Despite contacting her on weekends or after hours Lejla was always available.
I was surprised at how smoothly my surgery went. The only challenge is that I speak little to no Spanish. Staff at the hospital speak little to no English with the exception of the doctors. At one point the water for the hospital was shut off but that is atypical. A water line broke so the the entire area had their water turned off.
At all times I was treated with dignity and respect. Following surgery I was provided with medication and instructions on how and when to take my medication. I would recommend taking a few days off following surgery. I returned to the Bay Area on Thursday and went back to work on Monday. Overall I felt great.
Six months post op surgery and I am happy to report that I am down from 162 lbs to 125 lbs. Prior to surgery despite watching my diet and walking five days a week, it was impossible for me to lose weight. I am so happy with my weight loss surgery that I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who seriously wants to lose weight. Be prepared to make lifestyle changes if you want to keep the weight off. In the end you will be healthier. BTW, I underwent gastric sleeve surgery.
One last thing... I took photos at the boarder crossing and I witnessed no caravans or migrants. Don't believe what our president is saying. Once entering Juarez, I couldn't help but notice how clean the streets and the area is.
A big shout out to Lejla. Lejla, thank you for answering all my questions and for being there. I could not have done it without you. I credit you with my success.

Excellent! Skye and the rest of the team answered all my questions and virtually held my hand through the process. I went to Juarez Mexico for my Mini-Bypass. From the time I committed to the surgery to the surgery date was about 2 weeks (just in time to start my liver reduction diet). Everyone through the process was top notch. The hospital was excellent and I was very well taken care of, which was a big deal to me since I was traveling alone from California. I highly recommend Skye and the team at BeLiteWeight for your weight loss surgery!

Jessica was very informative and helpful through the whole process. We couldn't have hoped for anyone better. She went above and beyond what we expected. She was also the facilitator for my son a year ago. He still calls her with questions and updates. We have already recommended her to other people we know that are considering this surgery. Thank you.

This is by far the best thing I have done for Myself. The process was easy. They talked me through everything from financing, to hospitalization, surgery, post surgery. The hospital in Juarez was great. Very nice and attentive. I was scared due to the location and horror stories of the area, but we felt very safe. The Taxi picked us up at the airport and dropped us off at the front door of hospital. I would do it all over again.
