I had the sleeve procedure done and lost weight immediately. It has been 10 months and have lost over 60lbs. I previously had the lap band and lost about 70 lbs and after several years converted to the sleeve. Should have done the sleeve in the first place. but today I am happy with my overall decision. I am feeling great and no longer have to take my medication for diabetes and high blood pressure. I met my goal of becoming healthy again and losing the weight was just a plus in my life. Dr. Coon and his staff are absolutely wonderful and have answered all my questions and concerns. They have been there for me through out the process. Thank you!

I became aware of Dr DeBarros when I required emergency gall bladder surgery. The first time we met was me on a gurney waiting to be taken into surgery. In that emergency situation, he was confident and reassuring. The follow up visit with him left a lasting positive impression. Fast forward 6 years, I am researching weight loss surgeries and my first thought was Dr DeBarros. He is very thorough and honest when answering questions and discussing options. If he has concerns or hesitations about a certain procedure, he will ensure the proper tests are performed. He checked all of my information in the system and verified all the information was correct. He did not just take for granted that others had entered the information correctly. Dr DeBarros will be performing an EGD to make sure I am a candidate for the sleeve. I am excited about the EGD and finding out the results. I highly recommend Dr DeBarros. I wish you all a happy journey.....SMS

Hello I'm Robert and I would like to tell you about my experience with Dr. Feiz. First let me start with that I have done my research on weight loss surgery. After all my research last year I made my decision to go with Dr. Feiz. I went to his office in Beverly Hills over a year ago and sat down for the free seminar which was very helpful. Larry one of Dr. Feiz's staff was very helpful and full of information and answered all my questions. I had my surgery less than 4 months ago and I feel GREAT!!!! I have lost over 80 pounds now and 8 inches in waist. Now let me talk a little about the surgery. I had the surgery in Huntington Beach at a surgery center and the staff was so great. They made me feel so comfortable. The surgery was quick. Lol I was knocked out with anesthesia after waking up I feel some discomfort but not too bad. I was transported to a surgery aftercare in Beverly Hills. Which was really great as well. Nice staff. I have to say my whole experience was great. Dr. Feiz and his staff have been awesome and so helpful. A special thanks goes to his staff. All of them have been so great. Dr. Feiz would take time to call me if I had any questions. They have taken care of me and I'm glad I chose Dr. Feiz and associates. If there was 10 stars to rate them they would get them from me. If anyone would like to talk or have any questions please Dr. Feiz's office and ask away. They have my info you would like to hear more about my experience.

Dr. Feiz performed my gastric sleeve surgery in late September 2011, so it's been just over a year since then. In that time I've lost 80 lbs. and gone from a size 28 to a size 8! I look great. I feel amazing. I am a totally different woman. Before my surgery it was painful on my knees to walk up a flight of stairs. Never mind that I also had to stop to catch my breath as well. My boyfriend and I go biking, hiking, swimming...you name it. On a recent trip to Joshua Tree, he said that I was like a baby colt on new legs. I just couldn't stop climbing things and running around. My two favorite moment in the past year have been these. I used to say that I wanted to lose enough weight to wake up in the morning and put on my boyfriend's jeans by mistake. Well, when dressing for a commercial audition I found that the pants I wanted to wear were too big. So I went into my boyfriends closet and sure enough, he had a pair that were perfect and....THEY FIT! (Anyone who's met my boyfriend knows what a huge deal this is, because he is...to be blunt...a petite guy). My second favorite moment was recently when I visited my family in Florida. My sister took one look at me and said, "Oh My God! Your head looks HUGE!" I just loved that. When I was larger I always watched myself on television and lamented that my head looked positively tiny on that enormous body.

Patient's go into surgeries with certain expectations. Whatever the reason for the surgery, we offer ourselves unto the mercy of the surgeon and the operating room staff. Close[-] Our hope is that when we come out of the surgery we will be better for having gone through it. We begin with identifying the need for the surgery. Finding the right surgeon is generally next on the priority list. Not only is that person going to be responsible for your life, but where he or she practices is key to the decision making process. The need for surgery in my particular case was growing more evident with each meal. I had packed on the last 70 lbs in three short years. I had tried every possible diet imaginable, and then some. It was just a vicious circle. The more weight I gained, the more depressed I got. The more weight I gained, the more depressed I got. At 270 pounds, it was clear I needed help. Researching the options available and who offered these options was very involved for me. I had been to other physician's seminars on bariatric surgery, talked to office staff, looked surgeons up online, and met with them. I found Dr. Alshkaki on a bariatric website, We spoke in his office and I was very impressed. He gave me three surgical options and he explained each of them, I took the information home and decided on the gastric sleeve with a non- adjustable band. The option I chose was right for me. I was able, with the help of Dr. Alshkaki, to make the right decision. He explained the surgery fully and wanted to know if I had any questions. He really took the time to make sure I knew what the surgery involved. George Washington University Hospital is where Dr. Alshkaki performed my bariatric surgery, the professional staff there made me feel like I was top priority. Everyone from the admissions staff to the nurse practitioner was wonderful. Knowing that I was at GW meant that I was in good hands. I believe everyone should have the kind of confidence in their team as I had in mine. The surgery has changed my life, It seems like it all happened so fast. I went in first thing in the morning, had the surgery, stayed one night and went home. The road to recovery was a quick journey; The scale is no longer my enemy. I am so thankful for this experience.
