Dr Taggar gave me a quotation for a surgery. I asked him if the price will be increased (self pay) and his answer was no, the price is what it is and you will pay that. We signed the price. A few days later his assistant called me to let me know that the price has increased in $1000 (one thousand). She gave me some unprofessional explanation that the hospital raised the price, etc, etc. Very dishonest. Be aware if you get a quotation (self pay). I felt betrayed. Unprofessional and dishonest.

I met Dr. Taggar in Birmingham, AL in the summer of 2015. I was experiencing problems and weight gain from the original procedure I had in 2005. We discussed thoroughly about the problems i was having and the reason for the weight gain. Once we decided on a procedure that was best for me, which was the Revisional bypass. So in February of 2016 we did the surgery. After months of loosing slowly, this procedure kicked in and to this date i have lost a total of 77 pounds and still loosing

After many years of procrastination & research I decided to get the surgery done. I had met with Dr. Amit Taggar who works with Dr. Wizman and he made me feel very comfortable about booking my Surgery with him. He is a brilliant, young, up and coming surgeon. For the 2 week pre -op I lost 16/lbs and for 2 week post-op I lost another 24/lbs and I feel great. 40/lbs for the month of January total. Thank you Dr. Taggar for saving my life.

Dr. Taggar is personable and answered all my questions straight forward. I feel he has done everything in my best interest as a patient and I would recommend him to anyone that is considering this procedure. I have total confidence in his ability and would do it all over again, only sooner!
