Dr Cribbins is the best and he literally saved my life. Thank you for everything and for being my doctor. You are calm and sweet, which is not what I expected a surgeon to be like and I like that you have a dog in the office. You are the nicest doctor I have ever met and I always felt comfortable asking you questions.

Dr. Joe is the best! I was embarrassed & confused about weight loss surgery. This guy does not judge and told me to call him Joe. I was a smoker and didn't think I could have weight loss surgery. I am still a smoker but I am a thin smoker and have come off my blood pressure pills. I suffer from anxiety and depression and everytime I came to his office before surgery it felt more like visiting a friend Because he is so positive and never judged me. His office staff office staff and friendly dog Always made me smile. Thank you for being nice to someone who was scared and didn't know what to do...you saved my life.

Friday hernia surgery....walked out of hospital without the help of a wheelchair. Was an absolute great surgery. Was eating Saturday morning and walking around the house. Dr. Cribbins is great, made me feel comfortable and relaxed before the operation. He has a great staff as well. Thanks to them all. Keep up the good work doc we need good people like you.

Office staff seem friendly enough. Able to get appointments scheduled as needed. Had Gastric sleeve surgery and don’t feel it is successful. I feel like the ‘pouch’ is large. I have no restriction and can consume 24 ounce protein shake withougt issue. Asked Dr. Cribbins to do a swallow to view the pouch and he said it isn’t necessary. I need to follow the diet. If I had to live being hungry and follow a liquid diet, why did i spend thousands of dollars for tool that isn’t working?
