I had seen other bariatric surgeons and decided to continue my weight loss goals with him. My prior doctor had retired and the field was wide open. I chose him because of his professionalism and his ability to answer my questions succinctly. We discussed all my treatment options and I made the decision that was right for me. He supported me in that and didn't try to dissuade me. His office is efficiently run, never too busy that they cant answer a question I have. If they don't know the answer and have to get back to me, they or the person I need always does so in a timely manner.

Dr. Taggar performed my gastric sleeve 12/26/19 and I’m feeling great. 25 pounds down! No complications from the surgery...everything went perfectly. He explained everything to me and answered all my questions in every pre-op and now post-op visit. Never made me feel rushed, and gave me what I felt was personalized attention. I highly recommend this surgeon and his practice to anyone looking into WLS. Very personable, friendly, accommodating, and experienced. Thank you Dr. Taggar!

June 30, 2018 will make my one year mark since my gastric sleeve. Have Dr. Taggar perform my surgery was one of the best decisions I have made in my life. He made me feel at comfort before and after my surgery. He even text to check up on me several times after. I highly recommend Dr. Tagger to help with your lifetime change.

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.
