WHAT PATIENTS SAY ABOUT DR. CONTRERAS


Dusty F.

It’s going great man… I’m down to 380… 200 pounds lost! I definitely want to be featured as a success story. Feeling very good with… everyone was very professional and excellent.

AnnaMarie T.

So glad that I chose WLG! Had my sleeve done on December 29, 2016. I have had no complications. I was scared before the surgery because I’ve never had major surgery before. Weight Loss Getaways is amazing.

Samuel H.

Going from 4XL and almost 5XL to now fitting in an XL feels amazing. WLG transformed my life. The patient coordinators, and WLG staff in Mexico, as well as the Oasis folks really put in 110% effort to make your journey pleasant. I would highly recommend you guys!
