Thank you so much!!!

Dr. Jawad's clinic is in Ocala Florida.  My friend is having a procedure there next month.

Dr. Shebani is a Medicare provider and is presently accepting Medicare patients for Gastric Bypass surgery. Medicare patients whom are considering Bariatric Surgery should call the office to arrange for a consult with Dr. Shebani to discuss their surgical options.
