Caring and devoted to patients ... After years of pain and surgeries performed by other doctors, Dr. Yurcisin was able to find what was wrong and revise my G.P.. I should add that by the time I went to see Dr. Yurcisin I had grown very skeptic and afraid of any further surgery, but he assured me it would be fine, and sure enough, he was able to bring great relief to my very difficult situation.

Dr. Yurcisin and his staff at GSBWC are very friendly, supportive, experienced, and positive people. While I was looking for my options for weight loss, I found then randomly through Google Search of Top Bariatric Doctors in NJ. Having my surgery with them was the one of the best decisions of my life. They were all there to help and support me before, during, and after the surgery. Being a patient of GSBWC feels more like being among great family and friends. Awesome doctors and medical staff!

I would recommend Dr. Yurcisin to all my friends and family. Dr. Yurcisin was kind and friendly when I met him. Dr. Yurcisin took the time to explain what the best type of bariatric surgery was best for me. On the day of the surgery Dr. Yurcisin made me feel the surgery would go fine and he has great at talking to family when I came out of the surgery.

All the staff is amazing! Dr. Yurcisin helped me with gallbladder surgery. The incisions were very small healed very nicely and you could barely see him and it's only been about a month or so after and I'm back to my self again! Thank you!
