I was very compliant yet had failed VSG surgery and the doctor and staff did not return my calls. very unhappy with this surgery and this doctor! over 3 months out, total weight loss was 11 pounds...I was NOT cheating. I think he rushed me through and did not do a good enough job! such a waste! and I feel worse now after surgery! Think twice before considering this surgery.

I had the sleeve done by Dr T 4/10/17 at Orlando health. I just want to say the entire process was flawless for me. His staff worked with my insurance to get approval. They explained the whole procedure & process to me. It was 6 months of tests and diets and documentation. They even set me up on a payment plan. surgery was performed at ORMC and I couldn't ask for a better experience. Everyone there was great from prep to discharge. I'm 4.5 months out and lost 74 lbs. 26 to go!

I was hesitant about committing to bariatric surgery, but a friend had had her surgery with Dr. Teixeira and was ecstatic with her results. Because of her recommendation, I decided to have a gastric sleeve and I'm so very happy that I did. I haven't had any pains nor complications. The doctor is very professional and amiable. I regret not having done the surgery sooner, but thanks to the surgery, I'm more energetic and a lot happier. Thanks Doc, Susan

I have tried repeatedly to get in touch with this office as I was referred here by an oncologist. No one will return my calls and finally days later I get an email, they used the wrong name for me and basically do not care what an urgent situation I'm in (I haven't been able to keep solid food down in 5 weeks). its been a very frustrating situation and I'm going to definitely try a different doctor now.

Dr. Teixeira has got to be the best physician I've ever gone to. I had gastric sleeve surgery WITH major complications. I would have never made it through all of what I went through had it not been for him. He is extremely knowledgeable, kind and genuinely caring of the patients needs. I was an exception to the rule as far as having complications, but thanks to Dr. T., I made it through and have lost 50 lbs in the last 3-4 months. He is also the ONLY doctor that I actually enjoy going to see.
