Patient Testimonials

Thank you, Dr. Garcia, for the fantastic bariatric surgery. Three weeks ago, I had surgery, and everything went well, with no pain and a good recovery. I received support and trust from Dr. Garcia, who explained the health benefits bariatric surgery will bring to my life. He took the time to explain every detail of the process. I also received tremendous support from his office staff. I am forever thankful for bringing my confidence and my health back. I definitely recommend Dr. Garcia.

When I found Dr. Alvaro Garcia through the internet in my intense search for advice from the best doctors in South Florida who are performing the surgical intervention I needed. The first thing that caught my attention was that he is a board-certified surgeon and his extensive preparation, beginning at the Universidad Central de Venezuela, Yale, and Georgetown, including the many patient reviews of his non-invasive interventions. I had many questions about Gastric Sleeve Surgery, which were answered in detail in my first appointment with Dr. Garcia. Other doctors, I had seen before just chatted and explained my questions to me in less than 10 mins and then sent me to the nurse on duty. Dr. Garcia spent about one hour explaining to me the benefits and risks of the gastric sleeve procedure in detail, which I valued a lot when choosing him for my procedure. My gastric sleeve bariatric surgery was a complete success, my recovery was super fast and today, after one month of surgery and following the program's dietary recommendations, I have lost 16 pounds and I feel super healthy. The good pre-operative and post-operative care of the doctor, and the care of his team for his patients are among other things that make him an expert in his profession. Once again, thank you Dr. Garcia and his staff.

When I first went to see Dr. Garcia, I was not in a good place. Dr. Garcia took the time to listen to my concerns and provided a solution. After my first visit with him, I was optimistic! Dr. Garcia has been the most attentive and caring doctor that I've ever seen. Not only is he an excellent surgeon but he truly cares about his patients. The follow up has been superb and his office staff is the BEST (shout out to Liz & Barbara). I thank Dr. Garcia for helping change my life in so many ways. I highly recommend Dr. Garcia for his specialty services, as there is no other like him! Thank you, again, Dr. Garcia!

Dr Garcia and his staff are top notch. From my very first visit I have been treated like a VIP. My surgery was virtually painless and I have my life back. I am a tennis coach and had resigned to think that I will never play again. Thanks to Dr. Garcia I will be back and better than ever very soon. Thank you!!!!!
