CIMA is the only hospital to consider
My experience was as a mother accompanying a grown daughter for elective bariatric surgery not covered by her US Insurance. The surgery would be a healthy choice, and CIMA was the only hospital to consider. I had done a great deal of research and my husband, who works in CR, made personal inquiries about the surgery and the choice of CIMA Hospital before proposing the experience to my daughter. When speaking via telephone conference to Dr. Ariel Riviera, her designated surgeon, we were certain he was the right choice. Dr. Rivera answered questions for over an hour in a clear and a professional manner. He provides medical reasons after reviewing her history why certain medical options we had not considered would be of optimum success. After our phone conversation, we knew Dr Rivera had to be the surgeon for her procedure. I recommend the Hospital because it is modern, clean, and technologically efficient. My impressions are not only those of a family member accompanying a patient but of a person who has spent a fair amount of time in US Hospitals and whose son is an IS anesthesiologist. The medical staff is well advanced and everyone seems able to answer technical questions quickly and easily. The atmosphere is genuinely caring, and the staff responds quickly.
