I researched extensively before I chose Dr. Aceves. I could not find one negative thing about him. I went into the surgery confident I’d made the right decision and my experience in Mexicali did not disappoint. Dr. Aceves and his staff were competent and caring. I felt like I received excellent medical care. I had very little pain and have had an easy recovery. My scars are minimal and my weight loss has been good. The hospital was clean and comfortable, and it was important to me to spend the three nights in the hospital. I would highly recommend Dr. Aceves for anyone considering weight loss surgery.

I was sleeved by Dr. Aceves on 3/30/12. I am extremely happy with the care I received by him and his staff. I read rave reviews of him and have to say they were completely accurate. The equipment used was all very modern and up-to-date. The facility was exceptionally clean and the nurses seemed to anticipate my needs. The doctors were so patient with me and my father, who accompanied me. They provide detailed instructions for every step of the way, so you are never in doubt about what to do or eat in any situation. I was initially a little worried about being in Mexico, but it was completely safe. The trips across the border were uneventful and every person I met in Mexico (i.e. at the hotel/pharmacy/walking on the streets) were friendly and non-threatening.I was given the option to have a relative pay the difference to have the procedure done in the US but after my exhaustive research, I only wanted to go to Dr. Aceves. I feel he can be considered more qualified than many of the US based surgeons. I experienced minimal pain from the procedure and absolutely no complications to date. I am very very pleased with my treatment and would recommend him to my closest friends and family members. In fact, my father is considering returning to Mexicali to have Dr. Aceves perform the procedure on him!

I am so happy with the care I received for my entire stay at Hospital Almater under the careful watch of Dr. Aceves and his team. Not only did they do everything they could to calm my preop jitters, and not only did Dr. Aceves stop in personally to check on me several times a day, as did Dr. Campos, one of the other doctors on his staff, but he also took an interest in how my husband is doing… my husband is 15 months post vsg, and Dr. Aceves caught him drinking a diet coke in the hospital. Not only did he discuss this with my husband and remind him of all the reasons why he needs to be making better choices, but he also allowed hubby to get an xray of his stomach for free so that he could see how his sleeve is doing! Where in the US would anyone xray you for free?Both Aceves and Campos have great personalities and kept me giggling the entire time I was recovering. And I have already heard from Gaby, Dr. Aceves’s follow-up coordinator, twice since I got home two weeks ago. They genuinely do care about their patients over there, and I feel safer knowing I can email her any time and get a prompt response.

I am a self pay VSG patient who had surgery with DR Aceves on December 28, so just over 3 months ago. I have lost 80 pounds so far and feel great. Dr Aceves and Campo were both very professional and showed real care for their patients. The nursing staff was great too. I would highly recommend DR Aceves to anyone considering VSG surgery. I chose him over some cheaper doctors because I liked he worked out of an actual hospital and had a long track record of success. There were 4 patients having the procedure the same day and one of them has had issues with vomiting after every meal, but I dont think she was taking her medicine properly and didnt heal her stomach completely. For me I have had no problem eating other than I cannot eat much volume, which was the point. The money spent on this surgery is the best money I have ever spent in my life. I have a new life now. Thank you Dr Aceves!

I was a self pay patient and went to Mexicali by myself. I must say this was the cleanest most professional hospital I have ever been too. Both Dr. Aceves and Dr. Campos were very professional, compassionate, and new their stuff! I have no regrets and they took magnificent care of me from start to finish! I would highly recommend Mexicali Bariatric Center and would go back in a heart beat. They had an excellent nursing staff!

I have to say I was scared up until the minute I walked into the hospital. I was greeted by smiling faces, and I immediately felt better. I was taken to testing and then I met Dr. Campos. What a nice guy. I wish he and Dr. Aceves were closer to me. I would see them regularly. Dr. Aceves came in while Dr. Campos was talking to us, and I knew then I was in good hands. He is so relaxed,and knowledgable. The next day was surgery, and let me tell you, they dont mess around. If they say you are going to surgery in a few minutes, they mean it. Afrer surgery, I didnt really have any significant pain, and I dont really remember feeling bad. I have to say, it was the smoothest, most uneventful surgery I have ever had, and I credit Dr. Aceves for that. He is a wonderful Physician, and a very nice man. I recommend him highly.

Because I had my surgery in Mexico, I only “met” Dr, Aceves on these message boards. He is everything everyone has said before….he is kind, gentle, compassionate, friendly and so much more. I believe he is a talented surgeon. I’m not quite 3 weeks post op and my incisions are healing nicely. I have very little pain. I went back to work within a week of my surgery. I had surgery late Wed. afternoon and was back to work the next Wed morning. His staff is as wonderful as he is. Nina, preop, answered all my questions. Ernesto, the driver, was very kind. Yolanda and Blanca were with me every step of the way as was Dr. Campos. I wish they were local so I could see them all more. What a great team. I felt safe and secure the whole time. I believe both his surgical competence and bedside manner are both a 10 out of 10!

I’m a 26 year old mommy of two who traveled solo to Mexico to have VSG by Dr Aceves. I thought I would be really nervous, but I was at ease the entire trip! I was picked up by the driver at the San Diego airport and driven to Mexicali to the hospital. I hate having my blood drawn, and they were able to get my vein the first try! ( I have very small, deep veins) the hospital was VERY clean and the staff was. So friendly! I felt at home! After testing we were driven to a nice hotel a few minutes away. There was a very nice, inexpensive restaurant that I ate at for dinner. It was really good! The hotel room was nice and big! The next morning we were picked up and brought to the hospital for surgery. Dr Aceves came in as well as the other Drs to let me know what would happen and answer any questions. Dr Aceves put all my nerves to rest and I was excited! After surgery my pain was very little! The nurses took great care of me! The Drs all came to check on me several times during my hospital stay! It’s now been almost three weeks since surgery and I’m feeling great! My tiny incisions Are almost gone! I would HIGHLY recommend Dr Aceves to Anyone and everyone! He’s awesome and his work is impeccable!!!!
