At first I was very hesitant to go, but my mother said she would check it out and I told her I would go with her just for the ride. As soon as I entered OCC, I was so surprised on how attentive they are with everyone. Everything was so clean and they answered every single question I had. They took their time with me and made me feel very comfortable. Long story short, I ended up getting surgery before my mom! I would recommend they to everyone!
Growing up, I had always been on the heavy side. At the age of only 21, I was at my highest weight of 298 lbs. I thought I was normal until I saw my before picture. In my head, I was not that big, but that picture was a big reality check! I went on a strict diet. Gym everyday, nothing but water, and I had no social life. I did this for 6 moths and lost 52 lbs; however, I was miserable. I felt I could not do anything without being tempted to eat or drink. Then, I gained 35 lbs back within a year, all my life, my weight had yoyo’d. I tried getting the sleeve done here in California; however, I did not have $27K just laying around to get the surgery. I tried going through my insurance, but they would always give me excuses. I felt like I was never going to loose weight. I knew I needed help, so my father did his research and informed me about Dr. Ortiz. I did my research and visited the clinic. That was the best decision I have ever taken! After my consultation, there was no doubt in my mind that, this was the place for me. It is 100% affordable, they treated me like family, they were so attentive, and honestly the pain was like a 2 out of 10. I could not believe it! I am now 165 lbs and still working on going down. My goal is 145 lbs – 150lbs. 2019 is the year to reach my goal! If I can do it, YOU can do it!
