Fantastic, trustworthy and knowledgeable are just a few adjectives that come to mind. I've known the management at Vida for some time now and have to say that they not only know what they are doing when it comes to cosmetic / plastic surgery & dermatology, but they are definitely a cost effective solution in the saturated surgical space.

Muchas gracias al neurólogo doctor Quintero me opero de neurología del trigémino y estoy muy agradecida con Dios porque lo puso en mi camino para sanarme yo lo recomiendo al 100 por ciento muy buen doctor
I visited VIDA Wellness & Beauty on February of 2019. My experience was beyond amazing. I travelled from Miami because a close friend recommended me this wonderful clinic. The staff was very friendly, professional and attentive to all my needs, not to mention the faculty was super nice and very upscale. I love the way its designed, it felt very comfortable, clean and gave me very relaxing vibrations once I was there. Dr Fuentes performed Botox injections to erase my frown lines. The procedure was very quick, and my results are wonderful! I'm definitely going back and I HIGHLY recommend this place.
My experience at vida wellness has been greatWith Dr Alberto de la Fuente the dermatologist I been suffering with melasma hyperpigmentation problems And DR has been treated me with Just creams I noticed a 80 percent banish dark spots my skin looks way better And clean Soooooooo happy 😊😊😊I would really recommend them with you beauty needs all of them
Very professional, clean and unique. I was recommended by a friend and she was clearly not wrong. This is the place where you want to go, trust me. 10/10, will come back for sure.
I always get my quarterly botox here and i have just started doing the fabulous oxygen facials! The VIDA has always been A+++ with client service and satisfaction! The staff is wonderful and always going the extra mile! I highly suggest VIDA Wellness and Beauty!
My husband did an otoplasty surgery with dr. Fuentes and the results were very bad in fact he did the surgery second time there was no difference it was not professional work we wasted time and money the doctor did not see him until the day of the surgery when he should have done a consultation and plan for it please be careful my husband he is very stressed because he spent money and time for nothing and it looks very bad
What an amazing experience! From the moment I was picked up from the train station and walk through the doors of the facility, I felt amazing. The staff is friendly and attentive and everybody speaks both English and Spanish beautifully. My questions were always answered thoroughly, and I left there feeling like a new person. Everybody from the Cordinator’s, nurses and doctors all work together to create a comfortable and pleasant environment. Thank you so much to the team members at Vida and CosMed. I would recommend them to everyone I know😊
Dr. Castaneda and his staff were amazing. I found myself a doctor I will be returning to for all my cosmetic needs.😊
I was looking into this as a cheaper way to go for BBL and Breat lift but after looking at the all the unsettling review I'll just spend more somewhere else that I know I'll be in good hands rather than risking my life with a careless and unsympathetic office . Honestly this company should feel ashamed of themselves for the lack of care and trouble patients went through after coming here this is very alarming and concerning and I hope more people do Thorough research on every place and surgeon. I'm in the medical field and plastic surgery is very dangerous and can be fatal if done carelessly. I pray the ones who suffered from this experience are all in good healthy now🙏 . The review also tells me its difficult to make an appointment and keep it and for people traveling there, that's a huge inconvenience. I hope everyone takes the time to really research this place before making a decision, Remember your lives are put in there hands .
For those who have any reservations about the quality and care at Cosmed...well let me begin by saying my experience was nothing but wonderful. I definitely had my reservations about heading to Mexico for surgery but after interviewing some of the best Drs in CA I opted to go with Dr. Quiroz. Here is why: For the last few years I have been suffering with acute health ussues sending me to top notch specialists and countless trips to the ER ...still searching for ways to get my health back, and after research and consideration I opted to remove my implants to boost my immune system. Over the years I have been seen by over 50 doctors. Dr. Quiroz is by far top notch over all the rest. He is not only highly qualified, but his validation of my concerns, caring, friendly, sincerity and genuine kindness exceptional patience, expertise in his craft, has earned him the rank of my FAVORITE doctor EVER!!! Wish he could be my regular doctor. Can we clone him?! Lol. Not only is Dr. Quiroz someone who goes far and above to exceed expectations but his highly qualified staff follows his example. From the patient coordinator, Denise, who is the backbone to the clinic with her sweet, professional, truly caring ways, but also the recovery center nurses who genuinely cared and worked hard to keep you confortable, and properly cared for. In fact, every person staffed there that I interacted with or even observed at a distance truly shined bright with being a solid memeber of the clinic promoting a safe, comfortable, caring and friendly environment. There are no words to express how happy I am with my decision to go with cosmed and Dr. Quiroz over all my other countless choices. As far as I am concerned he is and the clinic is the RIGHT CHOICE.My sincere thanks to each and every one of you at Cosmed, you truly made a difference. And a special thanks to Denise for being you! And my greatest thanks to Dr. Quiroz for being the best doctor ever. A million thanks to all at Cosmed.Oh...One last thing...crossing the border is better on foot. Get a price BEFORE using taxi...or use urber....all the rest is SMOOTH sailing.
Excelente clínica, las instalaciones me encantaron y sobre el servicio los doctores fueron muy amables, muchas gracias por todo.
Excelente servicio, recomiendo a Dr Quiroz sin duda alguna. Estoy feliz con los resultados de mi facelift. Gracias a todo su staff.
Excelente Servicio con Dr Quiroz. ampliamante recomendado
Mi nombre es Kenia, he asistido muchas veces a botox con el Dr Quiroz, siempre han sido muy amables y muy profesionales Denisse y Dr Sanchez hacen un excelente equipo con el. 100% recomendado
I went to the Dermatology clinic and it was a waste of time. The doctor told me to do a simple 3-step skincare routine... He seemed aloof as if he didn´t care and there was a man following him around during the consultation (uncomfortable), which must have been a student. So basically, I paid $100 to be told what a ProActiv commercial tells me. I was already using a acne fighting skincare routine!
Definitivamente recomiendo este lugar. Me encantó mi consulta con el Doctor de la Fuente. Muy educado y con mucha ética profesional.
Very detailed and cleaned and everyone is really nice.
Excelente servicio, recomiendo al Dr. de la Fuente, es el mejor dermatólogo.
Went in for Botox with Mr. Quiroz and came out feeling amazing. This doctor is truly great!
I really recommend this.Dr Quiros has been really profesional and im very happy with the results
Wonderful place, very clean and they offer a great service.
I am writing this review in regards to Dr. Medina and hormone replacement treatment. I had a lot of questions, concerns and doubts in regards to the treatment; Dr.Medina answered all my questions and went over my treatment options; My health has improved tremendously since I started my hormone treatment; I am not taking any of the medications I was on; My family, friends and colleagues have noticed it; I have shared with them about my treatment. It is a pleasure to recommend Dr. Medina them based on my positive results.
Dr. De La Fuente was great! You could tell he really cares about his patients. I went in for a skin consultation and he determined something that 2 Doctors in the US had previously missed. Also he was great on walking me through the plan of different situations that may happen if the initial medicine does not work. This was an awesome feeling for myself as many Doctor just throw you some pills and send you on your way. Highly recommend him!
I had the pleasure of having Dr. Alejandro Quiroz and his very professional staff as my surgery team. I had a great experience from the very first day, to all of my follow-up consultations. Dr. Quiroz is very personable and easy to talk to. He made me feel extremely comfortable from the first day I met him. He's extremely knowledgeable about the plastic surgery procedures he performed. All of his staff, from his coordinator (Denisse) to his nurses (such as Jonathan) and assisting physician (Dr. Sanchez) were very helpful through out the whole process. The facility is nice and modern and really clean. I stayed in the recovery house that is also in the same building, which made it extremely helpful when I needed to visit with my surgeon or his staff for questions and check ups. I also had a great experience with the spa treatments (I had lymphatic massages to help with healing after surgery). They were extremely helpful and the masseuses are very well trained. I had post weight loss surgery (lower body lift, fleur de lis tummy tuck, breast lift and augmentation).
beyond happy and thrilled with my procedure done at Vida Wellness & Beauty. Having everything under one roof is very Convenient! The transportation is quick and the staff will always make you feel right at home!
Dr. De la Fuente, the Dermatologist, is amazing. Definitely worth the trip. Him and his staff are very professional, courteous and friendly. Highly reccomend them for any of your dermal needs.
Just a short hop from San Diego, spending a day at Vida Wellness left me refreshed and recharged. The oxigen facial was exceptional., as was the cosmetic dentistry. Highest quality of service at a fraction of the cost in the US.
I had a procedure done by Juan Carlos Fuentes at their facility in 2016. He did a huge amount of damage on my health. I was calling multiple times wanting to speak to him, or a director of the clinic Alejandro Quiroz. Both of them ignored my calls, and then they blocked me. I spent 2 month at the hospital fighting for my life. Fuentes damaged the saliva duct. He refused to take any responsibility for the damage he had done, I almost died. I had multiple surgeries, went through a lot of physical and emotional pain because of Fuentes mistreatment! I highly do not recommend this place from a personal experience. DO NOT TRUST JUAN CARLOS FUENTES!
Just a clean building and NOTHING . I took my daughter over there for her acne to visit Dr. Alberto. After doing lab tests, medication and nutrition program that he prescribed for one month, Not only My daughters acne got worse but also she got some digestive disorders . I made an appointment with him and have been driving all the long way from San Diego to let him change the medication. Unfortunately when my daughter and I went there, his office employees did cancel my appointment for no any reason. Can you believe that???. I have never seen such a weird Dr office, They cancel your appointment without letting you know in advance. They don't care about your time and you have no value for them but your money. Then I changed the doctor with another one in Tijuana downtown. To tell you the truth, The acne went off in just one week and most parts of her face got smooth without any side effects. I am really glad that pointless appointment with Alberto was canceled,
Beware visitors! These people are con artists especially towards Americans visiting for their services. I have been conned out of $560USD because they gave me a false estimate on the total treatment and changed up their story and said it was per session instead.I visited this place in June 2018 to get an estimate for tattoo removal. They were very inviting and seemed nice. I received an estimate on paper for full removal of my 2 tattoos ($560USD), which was clearly stated on the form that I was handed after the initial consultation. I found the estimate because I was given an estimate of $3000USD in San Diego. So I went back in July to start the treatment. I was told over the phone that I would only need to pay $56USD cash for each of my 10 sessions needed. So I showed up to my appointment and once again they were very inviting and got me started right away. As soon as the session was over everything changed. They told me that I needed to pay $560USD for the single treatment. I told them that was not what the estimate stated. I asked to speak with the lady who originally gave the estimate and they told me she was unavailable and that they could not access her records of estimates she gave out. So I was assured by the staff there that they would speak with her and resolve the issue, but that I would need to pay the entire bill before I’d be allowed to leave. They also ensured me that I would have a credit for any future visits of the miscalculated price on file. I asked the receptionist if this was a fairly common price and she said no and that she herself was surprised at the elevated cost. She told me that for a single session this price is very high! I paid the $560USD and hoped that they would get back to me in a timely fashion to resolve any misunderstanding about the bill. They told me to email the original estimate to them so they could review it and speak with the lady that gave it to us and they would respond in a day or two. I emailed them the original estimate as they requested and waited for a response for a week. No call or email or follow through on what they promised. So I called VIDA back and asked if they received the email, I was told yes but they didn’t have a response yet. I asked if I could be transferred to The lady who originally gave the estimate, they said yes but then hung up on me. I called back multiple times after on the same day and the phone was busy until finally a lady answered and told me she was not available anymore but they would have her give me a call back the following day. Not a single call back for two weeks. Finally, I called back today and asked to speak to Anna a cashier who I’d spoken to one my first call and who was aware of our situation and told me she had spoken to the doctor about the issue. I was transferred to her and as soon as I stated who I was she asked if I could call her right back in five minutes cause she was with a customer. I said ok. I called back several times, each time the phone was busy. I finally got through an hour later and the lady who answered told me Anna was no longer available today and that she would call me back. Every single person I’ve talked to at this clinic has given me the run around and all keep saying I have to speak to the original person who gave me the estimate which is not possible because they do not even know who it was themselves. Anna, the cashier said she would talk to the doctor and clarify to get my issue resolved because apparently no one else is able to help me but at this point I am going to have to cut my losses and move on. I would not recommend this company to anyone especially Americans because they do not run an honest, transparent business and in no way possible make efforts to communicate or clarify any issues.
Me encantó el personal muy amable, muy buen servisio respondieron a todas mis preguntas. El dr. Castañeda maravilloso definitivamente regresare.
Was looking forward to this place it's too bad the reception staff didn't coordinate well with me. I was told I would get an email with a quote after sending detailed pictures and never got one. I kept getting the run around and the end they promised to call me to schedule me in and never received a call. After telling them I was only in town for a week. What a huge disappointment. Don't waste your time on this place!!! Horrible service!
Me encantó el servicio, todos muy profesionales y siento mi rostro súper fresco, súper recomendable.
From the moment, the driver picked me up from San Diego and drove me across the border to VIDA I was impressed! I had done a virtual consultation with Dr. Quiroz so I was comfortable and ready for my makeover. The surgery went extremely well along with the recovery. I was waiting a couple months to write this review, to see my final results. I am beyond happy with my new face! I am thrilled and forever grateful to Dr. Quiroz and his team! THANKYOU.
La atencion de recepcion en el primer piso es pesima un hombre con muy mala actitud y muy pendante.
El día 24 de enero de este año, tuve una rinoplastia con el Dr. Fuentes, fué mi primer cirugía y la verdad que fué una muy buena experiencia, no tuve ninguna complicación durante la cirugía ni después, la recuperación fue de lo más tranquila, no tuve ningún dolor, no me salieron moretones en la área de los ojos, ni en ningún lado, en pocas palabras todo estuvo perfecto, el Dr.Fuentes es muy profesional en su trabajo, es excelente, también las enfermeras y el demás equipo de CosMed lo son, fueron muy amables y atentos conmigo. Si están considerando operarse, les recomiendo CosMed, es el mejor lugar sin duda. Muchas gracias a todos por esta increíble experiencia. ❤️
Do not I repeat DO NOT use this place...they are not only butchers who will screw up your surgery leaving you need many more surgeries they do not practice sanitary procedures...MRSA is a problem here... I got MRSA got stepic and almost died because of them not following proper post o.p care. I meet many women who got MRSA here... save your life STAY FAR AWAY FROM HERE.... they replied saying they would have my dr get back to me lmfao my dr knew i was in icu septic he touched based the 1st week of my 4 week hospital stay couldn’t care less like i saud do not go here
I cant say enough great things about the Bariatrics team at VIDA Wellness and Beauty. I have to admit I was a little apprehensive about going to Tijuana Mexico for my Gastric Sleeve procedure, but I was so wrong! From beginning to end, I was reassured that I was safe, and in great hands. The facility is beautiful with state of the art equipment, the bariatric surgeons are experts in their fields, and the staff is warm and caring, you just cant get this kind of attention in the States anymore. VIDA was also one of the first facilities in Mexico to get a AAAASF certification, an international recognition for safety and sanitation, which they constantly have to comply with, this reassured me as well. VIDA also helped me get over my fear of Anastasia. In the past I would get sick and vomit after surgeries, VIDAs anesthesiologist was amazing, she listened to my concerns and said, "I got you", and she did. VIDA is the real DEAL! VIDAs pictures and videos are true to life, what you see is what you get.This was one of the best decision I have ever made, my only regret is that I should have done it sooner. I am happy, healthy, and I got my groove back! This was a life changing event and I am so thankful it was with VIDA...I Cant wait for my next surgery with their excellent plastic surgeon team.
Me encanto, se lo recomendé a todas mis amigas. Los doctores que me atendieron son muy profesionales.
I live in San Diego and came to VIDA Wellness & Beauty in Tijuana for botox. The office and facilities were beautiful, and nicer than most other medi-spas I’ve been to in San Diego and LA. It was easy to book my appointment through the patient coordinators, and the girls at the front made me feel comfortable as soon as I arrived.The appointment itself only took about 10 minutes, and in that time Dr. Fuentes took before photos of my face, studied the lines in my forehead and between my eyebrows, asked me if I wanted any movement to keep a more natural look, and started injecting (I get 24 units). His process felt thorough and that he was taking his time, and between each injection he would ask me to furrow or flex my brow so he could see exactly in which muscle to administer the Botox. I have been to other places (in San Diego and LA) where a nurse would take one look, mark up your forehead, and inject the Botox as if she does it the same exact way for anyone. At VIDA I really felt that I was in great hands, and after seeing Dr. Fuentes and his decades of expertise as a board certified plastic surgeon, I will be coming back to VIDA again and again for my Botox. I have been telling all of my friends to come to VIDA! Though I only got botox here so far, I saw that they also offer other injectables and fillers as well as laser hair removal and other laser treatments.
Te hacen esperar mucho para que te atiendan.
me encantaría me proporcionaran un correo electrónico.
