Dr. Verboonen performed my gastric sleeve surgery one year ago. I flew from Texas alone and was naturally nervous but once I arrived in Tijuana, Mexico he and his staff took great care of me. He’s an amazing surgeon and I wouldn’t change a thing! I’ve presently lost 166 lbs and counting. Thank you Dr. Sergio Verboonen for changing my life!!! Melissa Jackson, 5-Star Review, 2022
