Obesity Control Center, under the supervision of Dr. Ortiz, is second to none. Dr. Ortiz and his well trained staff of professionals make the patient feel welcome and they treat everyone as family. Everyone from Dr. Ortiz to the newest member of his staff are very polite and respectful to their patients. The facilities are as spotless as any hospital anywhere in the world. After my procedure I never felt any pain at any time and his staff told me to let them know if I had any pain. If anyone reading this post is interested in having the procedure done then I highly recommend they consider Obesity Control Center and Dr. Ortiz and his staff. They get a double thumbs up from me.

The greatest decision I have made for me, having the gastric sleeve and having the procedure at Obesity Control Center. Dr Ariel Ortiz along with the entire staff are amazing. There is not one question that you can ask that cannot be answered. It is safe, there are videos, pod cast, and step by step nutritional and diet instructions. Lucia Chavez is the Nutritionist, she can answer all of your questions and provide all of the information needed for your weight loss success. For those of you on the fence, do your research. In the end, you will find the only Dr's and staff to provide your procedure with safety is Dr Ariel Ortiz and the staff of Obesity Control Center.

The level of care I have received from OCC is awesome. I was initially hesitant of traveling out of country for surgery, I was greeted at the airport and taken to the hotel (Great Hotel too). I was fully informed of the procedure and healing. One of the biggest pluses for my is the JCI accreditation (Part of JACHO). The hospital was as nice and new as any facility I have been in. The Dr's and staff are top notch. Well worth the travel and the money. I am a 100% happy patient.
