Review of Dr. Higa

- in CA |

Dr. Higa, is a highly skilled specialist in his field. He's concise, polite and occasionally funny. :) He saved me 8 years ago from what I call, "constant pain" from my first surgery by another Dr. For this, I'm forever grateful, because I feel he has a truly caring heart. Thank you Dr. Higa

Review of Dr. Higa

- in Los Banos, CA |

I went to see Dr. Higa about revision surgery. He was arrogant and condescending. My blood pressure was high and he told me that I should go on a blood pressure medication that would help me lose weight, but he REFUSED to give me the name of the drug. I wrote to him and he did not respond. I talked to his office manager, who also refused to help me with the blood pressure medication question. Also, he would not answer questions about revisions. I would never recommend this "doctor."

Review of Dr. Higa

- in Fresno |

I had a gastric-y bypass surgery in 2001 that was not done correctly by another doctor. I was on the brink of death in 2013 because of it. Dr. Higa is the only doctor in the entire San Joaquin Valley that would provide me with any medical and surgical help. Needless to any say, I am still alive today thanks to God and Dr. Higa. I am so very grateful to be alive today to be a part of my little boy's life and not leave my husband a widower. Thank you Dr. Higa!

Review of Dr. Higa

- in Atwater, CA |

On 2/17/2004 Dr.Higa gave me the gastric bypass. In the last year I have gained up to 222. I started at 338. I've stayed around 190 for years. But I can't seem to get the weight off now. What to do. Dr. Higa is a wonderful doctor.

Review of Dr. Boone

I had my roux en y 16 years ago. I lost 120 lbs and have maintained that weight for 16 years now. Dr. Boone was the best and I suspect he still is. I'd do it all again :)

Review of Dr. Boone

- in Madera, ca |

I saw Dr Boone about two years ago because he was highly recommend. My mistake. I saw him my first visit, and again the day of my surgery. All seemed to go well with surgery was released on schedule and without issues. My after surgery vist he was not available. Or any visit there after. Did not ever see him again. Only the nurse practioner. Office visits made me feel like I was being hurded in like cattle. Was even forgotten one time and left in the back room for hours.

Review of Dr. Boone

- in Fresno, CA |

This doctor is probably the best doctor and surgeon out there. I had a small bowel surgery completed due to damage in the small intestine. What I really enjoyed about this doctor was the fact that he figured out the medical issue right away and had me in surgery in under a couple hours. What took other specialists over a year and a lot of medical exams. He is very straight to the point which I appreciate and trust in a doctor. I already recommended my dad and a few others who have medical issues

Review of Dr. Higa

- in Hanford, CA |

He told be what weight loss surgery worked best for me. He answered all my questions. I have been looking for a doctor for the last 6yrs. He had all the answers and statistics to back it up. He even told me information on my nationality and what works best for me. Even though, I think he should spend more time with patients during the process of getting the surgery, I know there is not way he can. He is so busy and the office staff he has is nice. I did it and I would never regret it.
