  • About Me

    I am passionate about the benefits of bariatric surgery and have seen the life-changing effects it has on patients. They have so much life still ahead of them, and you really see them blossom and transform their lives.  It is very gratifying to perform weight loss surgery and see patients so radically change their lives and health in as little as six months.
