Ocala Regional Medical Center (COE)

"The staff anticipated my every need. I never had to use the nurse call system for anything. I was well cared for, they checked on me regularly and the entire staff was completely attentive to my needs. I highly recommend Kelli Potenza, RN, Bariatric Coordinator and the entire ORMC Bariatric team!"

Muhammad Jawad

"PRE-OP - I've known Dr. Jawad for years and his reputation in Ocala is impeccable! I wouldn't have this surgery with anyone else as he is the best! I'm looking forward to going through this process with him. POST-OP - Having now gone through the process of having my very first surgery, I know I chose the right man for the job. Dr. Jawad was just as professional as I expected him to be. His complication rate is FAR below the national average and he is an expert in his field. He took whatever time I wanted to answer any questions or concerns and made sure I was comfortable with the WLS process. I highly recommend him and his staff is second to none - friendly, professional, knowledgeable, helpful and a GREAT asset!! I was honored to work with these people!! I tried to think of any negative comment, but Dr. Jawad has all his bases covered. He's got a great staff, he knows his stuff, he's kind and caring, he's got a wonderful aftercare program and support group. I just couldn't ask for more."
