Sage Bariatric Institute Doctors Awarded the Women’s Choice Award

Sage Bariatric Institute is proud to announce that Dr. Ramiro “Sonny” Cavazos, Dr. John J. Gonzalez, Dr. Allen Alvarez, Dr. John Pilcher and Dr. Henneth Corado have received the impressive Women’s Choice Award.

Women’s Choice Award

The Women’s Choice Award identifies the best doctors, healthcare facilities, brands and companies, to assist people in choosing the very best for themselves and their families. The Women’s Choice Award uses objective criteria to evaluate doctors and determine which ones are the most trusted in their field. By doing this research, the Women’s Choice Award helps  women, (and also men!) navigate their options when choosing a physician.

Awards and Accolades for Sage Bariatric Institute

Sage Bariatric Institute is not unused to awards and accolades.  Under the leadership of our surgeons, our surgery facilities have been awarded the MBSAQIP (Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program) Center of Excellence certification, which is determined by  an independent, voluntary, and rigorous evaluation in accordance with nationally recognized bariatric surgical standards.  We have also received San Antonio Magazine’s Top Docs Awards every year since 2006. On Google we take pride in our rating of 4.9/5 stars with nearly 700 ratings.

What Makes Us Special?

The doctors at Sage Bariatric Institute have undergone the highest levels of training in the field of obesity and bariatric surgery.  They have performed over 15,000 bariatric surgeries and have helped thousands of others with non-surgical weight loss options.  Several of our surgeons travel throughout the country teaching surgical techniques to other surgeons and programs. They are truly regarded as the experts of their field.

In addition to unsurpassed experience and expertise, our doctors are known for their deep passion for fighting obesity and a sincere compassion for their patients.  Patients continually praise them for their excellent bedside manner and genuine care.  Many of our patients have felt ostracized by society because of their weight.  That changes here at Sage Bariatric Institute.  We understand that obesity is a disease and we are committed to helping people overcome it.
