Reasons to choose Dr. Ortiz at OCC.

I RESEARCHED DR. ORTIZ FOR 6 MONTHS BEFORE MAKING THE DECISION THAT CHANGED MY LIFE.

SELF HATRED TO BEING MY OWN BEST FRIEND

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A BIGGER GIRL. I REMEMBER CRYING MYSELF TO SLEEP AT NIGHT BECAUSE I HATED THE WAY I LOOKED. I WOULD LOSE 10 LBS AND GAIN BACK 20 LBS. I FINALLY GAVE UP TRYING. IN 2012 I TRAVELED TO MEXICO AND DR. ORTIZ PERFORMED THE GASTRIC BAND PROCEDURE. I LOST 50 LBS OVER THE NEXT YEAR. I COULDN'T FIND ANYONE NEAR ME TO DO THE BAND ADJUSTMENTS SO I HAD TO RETURN TO MEXICO TO GET THE ADJUSTMENT AND I ONLY LOST 10 MORE LBS. I DECIDED THAT MY NEXT TRIP TO MEXICO I WOULD HAVE THE BAND REMOVED AND I ASKED DR. ORTIZ TO PERFORM THE GASTRIC SLEEVE INSTEAD. I HAVE NEVER BEEN HAPPIER IN MY LIFE. I LOST 100 LBS OVER THE FOLLOWING YEAR AND HAVE KEPT IT OFF. I HAVE ENERGY, MOTIVATION, AND JOY IN MY LIFE THAT I NEVER HAD BEFORE. I HAVE A GREAT JOB, A GORGEOUS BOYFRIEND, AND AM AT COMPLETE PEACE WITH WHO I AM.
