Patient Testimonials & Reviews

I was able to lose a total of 80 pounds in 8-9 months and that is exactly the number I was aiming for. If I had any issues along the way (which I rarely did), Dr. Roohipour was there for me. I now have the energy and strength to play with my kids which I couldn’t do before. Words cannot express my gratitude towards Dr. Roohipour and his team! It truly is life-changing and I am the happiest and confident than I have ever been. Read Full Story.

Diana Balayan

I had bariatric surgery 7 months ago. It was a wonderfully positive experience from the moment I checked in to the second I was allowed to check out. Since then I’ve lost almost 90 pounds. The weight loss has been achieved safely and effectively due to the months of education given to me beforehand, some of it quite intensive as my surgery date drew closer, as well as the equally attentive aftercare the bariatric program employs.
