Dr. Dewitt and his staff are amazing. They walk you through every single step from pre-surgery diets to after care. He is the only doctor I have recommended to all my friends and family for bariatric weight loss options. I had surgery about 4 years ago and lost over 200 pounds and have kept it off...more

Dr. DeWitt to me, is nothing more than a rogue and unconscionable surgeon lacking in even the most simple surgical skills, but having the motivation to cover up his egregious errors. I believe that he is a public/health menace!

He is the most caring doctor of there, he has a wonderful personality, doesn't rush through appointments and truly listens to his patients concerns. Although us his wait for of long. But I have always been warned ahead of time, just remember, if he's busy that says slot about him.

An hour and a half in the waiting room and 35 minutes waiting in a room is ENTIRELY too long to wait for any doctor. It's like this every time.
