Dr. Ghandi helped me when no one else knew what to do. I ended up having a rare condition that wouldn't go away. He did a procedure to fix it and ice never been better. This was about 3 years ago now and still great results!

Excellent Surgeon! Very thorough and personal. He helped me understand the pros and benifits of bariatric surgery and enabled me to make a good informed decision. He walked me through every step of the process. Happy with my decision to be sleeved.
