I have seen stories on the internet,
even on other reversal doctor's
websites that say that the doctors in
Mexico are not qualified to do this
surgery, and that I will get butchered
in Mexico! This really scares me
- so how do I know that won't really
happen to me? I don't
see any complaints on your site about
other doctors. Is that because
the other doctors are better doctors?
We have all heard the expression
"don't believe everything you read". It
is necessary to
remember that bit of wisdom especially
now with the internet becoming the world's #1
method of communication.
People are generally
not held responsible for what they say
on the internet - so they can say
anything regardless of accuracy or truth.
Sadly, that makes it difficult
to distinguish between truth and
fiction. Some stories are false
and are made for monetary
gain (please note we will never pay to remove a
negative story or to post a positive
one), and some stories are fabricated
who have never been a patient here.
Again, if you are not able to verify
their identity then it could just be a
false rumor. But, with some research
and a little time, the truth can be
distinguished from the rumors -
allowing you to make a well informed
It is important to
keep in mind the site you are looking
at ask some questions:
Is it a real and reputable site?
(The "Better Business Bureau" is a reputable
and legitimate site /however the
Bad Business Bureau is 'not'
legitimate nor reputable)
Can anyone post anything they want - or
is it monitored for legitimacy and accuracy?
some of the other stories? Do
they sound legitimate - or just disgruntled people
Are they actual
patients? (yes, sadly some
people 'do' just sit around making it

It is very important to talk to
real patients so you can get accurate
reviews of service and outcomes.
This is why we have set
where you can talk directly with other
patients and find out what their
experiences were. Many patients
have been around for years and have a
lot of knowledge to share.

Do we butcher, cheat, or harm patients
medically? Of course not.
That is evident by the
number of 'happy' patients we have and
our high success rate.
Dr. Perez is an ethical and
compassionate person and a
highly skilled surgeon with an
excellent reputation. And the vast
majority of his reversals are
successful. There are times
when - even under the best
of circumstances - he cannot make a
patient's dream come true. Not
all patients will conceive after a
reversal. This is not because of
their reversal surgery, though we
sympathize with their disappointment. Lashing out and
looking for someone to blame is human
nature. Instead of choosing to blame the
doctor who 'broke' them - they blame
the doctor who could not fix what was
already broken. We
grieve with them and
wish them well - but we can only do
what can be done - and beyond that it
is out of our control.
Do we ever get complaints
about US doctors or disparaging
letters sent to us about them?
Absolutely!! We do quite a
number of 'second reversals' for
patients who previously went to
other US doctors. But,
NOT allow them on our site. It is
Attempting to discredit other
allowing patients to do it on our
forums) to build our reputations is not how we choose to do
business. We believe that most
doctors do their very best to try to
help all patients, but no one is 100%
successful. We choose to do
business with respect for the
profession, and stand on our own merit
and patient/doctor referrals for
growth. It is also unproductive.
It does not make surgeons better,
it does not make patients healthier,
it does not increase our success rates or reduce
put, it serves no purpose among
professionals, and therefore we choose
not to participate in it.
Patients have a right to choose
whichever doctor or hospital they
believe is best for them.
