Successful Weight Loss Surgery Patient / Marilyn Hall

Marilyn Hall, I have accompanied appx 40-50 patients down for procedures – this is a personal free mission of mine. This was so life altering that I never want anyone to be afraid to go down. I am in the business of Physician Management here in the states and I have had some of my clients use the services there. It is a wonderful facility and the surgical skill of Dr. Aceves and team is absolutely second to NONE.
