My initial consultation with Dr. De La Torre was great! I went in thinking that I was going to get one procedure and after speaking with him he told me about another procedure that would work better for me. At first I was a bit apprehensive about the new procedure, but after he explained it to me I felt a lot better about it. I am really looking forward to working with him and the rest of his team as I begin my weight loss journey.
