Review for Dr. Kowalczyk

Before my first appointment the Dr was sending requests for five star reviews. At no point did she make me feel comfortable. I felt gas lit. I did not have a good experience in the several appointments I've had with her and would not trust her to do surgery.

Harry M Feb 15 2024

Review for Dr. Hertz

I had bariatric surgery done with Dr.Lalezari. I choose to have the sleeve gastrectomy. In 1 week I have lost 18lbs. I know I made the right decision in coming and deciding to get this surgery. Since day 1 Dr.Lalezari made feel confident and safe to make this .

Jacqueline T. Feb 15 2024

Review for Dr. Lalezari

Dr.Lalezari repaired my hiatal hernia. He did it laparoscopic and robotic.I felt no pain after surgery. My incisions are not visible and I feel great. I recommend any one who has a hiatal hernia to come see Dr.Lalezari because he is a great hernia surgeon.
