    Dr. Edward is simply the best gastric surgeon in the United States in my opinion. Almost zero scars and a piece of cake (LOL) with my gastric sleeve. A 40 minute procedure. Aftercare was perfect. He is caring and always available and appointments can be made with only a short wait time and immediately if there is an emergency. Great bedside manner and immense experience in minimally invasive surgery. See him without hesitation and as a first choice Mission Hospital surgical weight loss surgeon.
