The #AskDrA Book 2: Easy & Practical Answers To Enjoying Life As A New Sleever

In May 2016, my team and I set out to help more people understand the benefits of vertical sleeve gastrectomy by launching Vol. 1 of the #AskDrA Book. The book was based on the hugely successful #AskDrA Show which airs every week on YouTube, Facebook and other social networks. This book is Vol. 2 and a companion resource to the first book and the show. It contains 87 questions and answers guiding you through pre op, post op, nutrition, exercise, supplements and much more. Every chapter contains a “follow along” link to the episode on the show, so you can listen along while reading.

I’m a patient of Dr. Alvarez myself and I must say that he is the best Doctor performing Sleeve Surgery. This book is an excellent read for someone who is Pre/Post Op bariatric sleeve surgery.
