Ian Soriano M.D.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Soriano. He has an amazing bedside manner and is an excellent surgeon. Is very matter of fact and wants the best for his patients. I am following him to another hospital in January because I want to stay with him for my follow up care. When I was hospitalized with dehydration a few weeks out, I went to a local hospital instead of his and he was in contact with the ER physician there and kept me updated on tests and results through text messages quicker than the ER did. Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous and would recommend him to everyone.

I was a normal weight in high school, however still struggled. My senior year I had went from 135 to 152 and then just continued on a downward spiral. I went up to 185 the summer after I graduated due to living on my own and not eating right (plus undiagnosed thyroid issue). After that it was a steady incline until I reached my highest weight of 287 several years ago. The lowest I was in the past 12 years was 235 in 2005. Going to Overeaters Anonymous has helped tremendously, and along with seeing a counselor who specializes in food addiction issues, have been the 2 biggest things to make me realize i cannot do this on my own. The last straw for me was not being able to get pregnant. After a year of fertility treatments, I went for a second opinion and she said that unless I lose weight, it will be unlikely for me to get pregnant. I've decided to get the sleeve because I didn't want the malabsorption of the bypass and the upkeep of the band.
