I saw Dr. Mehran several times for an umbilical hernia. I suffer from severe chronic pain, spine issues, plus at the time had debilitating anxiety and Dr. Mehran was extremely compassionate, patient, and very attentive to all my needs. He is an outstanding doctor and I highly recommend his services.

Dr. Mehran is kind and was patient with all of my questions and the amount of time it took for me to make a decision to go forward with VSG. Great bedside manner but a straight shooter and tells it like it is. Very respected surgeon in our community among other doctors I spoke with leading up to surgery.

Dr Mehran changed my life! I cannot thank him enough, he was so helpful and patient with me. No question is a dumb question. I got my gastric sleeve in Sept 2020 and just had my one year check up. I am healthier and happier. Yvonne in his office is amazing and super helpful also. I have never had such a great Dr. Thank you so much I could never tell you how much you have changed my life for the better.

If you are willing to do the work, this is the Dr for your weight-loss surgery! His incredible talent and encouragement to get healthy has helped me lose more than 100lbs in less than a year! I met with Dr Mahran in June of 2020. The clock started and my insurance required 12 dietitian visits to be approved for this surgery. You will receive a folder of documentation showing you everything you need to do to prepare. You will need to lose a little weight (in my case) prior to surgery. I worked with my dietitian closely and he got me started riding bike at least 1x per week. You have to do the work and be your own advocate! My diet slowly changed and as a result my mind changed. My surgery was in November 2020. Dr Mahran and the hospital were impeccable! A 5 month process to go from 42" waist to 34"! He will tell you,"I just do the plumbing". Dr Mahran is The Best Surgeon for your weight-loss surgery. I went from 20 miles to 300 miles per month cycling. From 291lbs to 188lbs! U got this!

Dr. Mehran is awesome! He did my VSG in 12/2020...YES, I did it during COVID. Everything from the first consult through the post op appointment was great. He explained everything very thoroughly, Yvonne in the front answered questions quickly between appointments and the insurance approval was painless, they handled it all. The surgery was great, no pain or complications of any kind. I didn't even use the pain meds is was prescribed. I recently had some intestine imaging for completely other reasons none associated with my VSG and the radiologist came in a couldn't stop raving about how good my VSG looked! I am down 80lbs in 8 months. You have to follow directions to be successful by the doc and his staff set you up for success!

Dr. Mehran was excellent! He helped to put me at ease. My case was a bit more complicated being a revision surgery and there was a lot of scar tissue. Dr. Mehran went out of his way to make me feel comfortable and at ease. He allowed me to ask as many questions as I wanted and I never felt rushed. After my surgery, he saw me every day that I was in the hospital which helped me feel like he cared and wanted to make sure that I felt good. He also went out of his way to come in to the office to help me take my drain out. Yvonne in his office was also super helpful and sweet. If you are looking for a caring doctor and staff, look no further! I would 100% recommend Dr. Mehran.

Dr. Mehran was easy to talk to and answered all my questions whenever I had them. My surgery also was successful and all the nurses at the hospital told me how lucky I was I had him overseeing my care when I was in recovery and I felt that relief when it was rocky the first few days and I walked out of the hospital happy and healthy.

Very knowledgeable. He listens and does not treat patients with a "one size fits all" attitude. He was kind and helpful. His staff is friendly. He made the process easy to understand. He is an excellent surgeon and I have had zero complications. He followed up plenty of times after surgery and was supportive. I highly recommend Dr. Mehran.

I'm about 6 months post op and have lost 75-ish lbs. I appreciate Dr. Mehran's honesty and encouragement on this weight loss journey. It's not easy, and I've felt like I can go to him with my concerns and issues. He is straightforward and easy to talk to, but also willing to further explain things if you do not understand or need more clarification. I've still got a long way to go, but feel excited for the changes ahead.

So happy I chose Dr. Mehran! He is completely present and attentive when you meet with him, spends as much time as you need going over every aspect of the surgery, and is clear and precise when answering your questions. My surgery went smooth as could be and I had very little pain after. Also, after the procedure he was available to me via e-mail when I had questions and/or concerns. I could count on him more than any doctor I've ever had before.
