WLIA's co-founding surgeons, Dr. John DeBarros and Dr. Michael Orris were named Phoenix Magazine's "TopDocs" in 2010, 2011 and 2012. They are both recognized as Bariatric Surgery "Center of Excellence" surgeons, and retain priveleges at several of the area's most prestigious hospitals. With two other surgeons on board - Dr. Anthony Galitsky, Dr. Jason Richardson, and Dr. Thomas Buddensick WLIA is one of the largest bariatric practices in the area.

THe Dr's and staff at the WLIA have been great. They have made this process an easy one and have answered all my questions. I would highly recommend Dr Orris to anyone that is considering this.
