I recently had hernia surgery performed by Dr. Krikhely. I want to recommend his services enthusiastically. The surgery went well but i was most impressed with the genuine concern Dr. Krikhely had for me as a patient. He prepared me thoroughly and met with me shortly after the surgery and then again six months later. At both meetings, he had all the time I wanted to discuss my concerns. In fact, at the second meeting, he even raised issues that I brought up at the first meeting and that I had long since forgotten. This is a terrific doctor.

I had Nissen Fundoplication done by Dr. Krikhely a few months back. I highly urge any potential patients to have it done somewhere else, not at NYP, unless they want to wake up in the operating room in full pain, unable to breathe because pain is too much - and to scream until they sedate you again, second time, which is what happened to me. Richard Raker was my anesthesiologist for that procedure. Please learn from my experience, this is a serious surgery, don’t put your life and wellbeing in their hands.

Dr. Krikhely is an amazing Bariatric Surgeon. He completed my surgery on July 19. Dr. Krikhely gave me a second chance at living a healthy life. My surgery was completed in a 40-45 minute time frame. I had no complications. Thank you, Dr. Krikhely for making this process as comforting as possible. I will forever be thankful to Dr. Krikhely and his team.

Not only is he a phenomenal, knowledgeable and professional doctor he’s also an amazing person, kind hearted, reliable and is someone who really cares about his patients. From office visits to urgent calls, he’s always so helpful and is so patient with me and addresses all of my concerns. I highly recommend him. His team is also great, they are all super nice and helpful in every way possible. Dr. Krikhely thank you so much for all that you have done to help me, it’s so greatly appreciated.

I feel completely blessed to have had Dr.Krikhely as my surgeon. He did a phenomenal job with surgery. I was never really in any pain and the incisions are barely visible only a week post op. I received the best care from the office visits, surgical room, recovery room and inpatient. Was in and out the hospital within 30 hours. Was out and about the very next day after surgery running errands. I am extremely blessed and thankful for Dr. Krikhely and the amazing team at Columbia Presbyterian.

I met Dr. Krikhely on March 22 and I knew that day that I was in good hands. My surgery was April 24(one of the best days of my life) my surgery was a complete success, today July 31st I am down 47 pounds lighter and have never been happier. People tell me that they don’t recognized me because the change has been so drastic. I recomend Dr. Krikhely and his staff 200%. It is the best investment that anyone can do for themselves. Also please join a gym after surgery.

I saw Dr. Krikhely for a 2nd opinion for surgery to repair a hiatal hernia. He sent me for additional testing to ensure that he would perform the correct surgery based upon the findings. I had my surgery done on March 14, 2018. My progress post-op has been better than I had expected it would be. I am really feeling wonderful! Dr. Krikhely is an exceptional doctor and surgeon. He takes his time with you and answers all questions. His support staff have also been wonderful to work with.

I had a gastric sleeve done by Dr.. Krikhely on Feb. 02, 2018 just a little over two weeks ago. The operation was relatively painless (as I was asleep) lol. but definitely a success. I woke up from the anesthesia and recovered extremely well. I had no sores or extreme pain at all..Now today is the 16th of Feb. exactly two weeks after my surgery and I have went from 323lbs to 285lbs in only 1 month. this is counting my 2 week liquid diet. Thank you very Much Doc! You have changed my life!

Dr. Krikhely and his team are absolutely phenomenal. Prior to seeing him, I was in a different bariatric program but I wasn't 100% comfortable. I was referred to Dr. Krikhely and decided to get a second opinion. He listened to everything I had to say and answered all of my questions. Explained everything in a way that was easy to understand and addressed any concerns I had. The admin & clinical staff are all incredibly kind. Best decision I made was to have him as my surgeon!

Dr. Krikhely is a very talented surgeon. He is people-oriented. He answered all questions clearly. Throughout, he was available and attentive. On surgery day, I felt so relieved when he visited me, right in pre-op area. He was reassuring. After surgery, he and team visited me multiple times -so appreciated! For post-op appts., he has been sensitive and pain-staking regarding follow-up. His staff is also kind and thorough. I highly recommend, Dr. Krikhely as your bariatric surgeon.
