Love Dr. Bobby!! Dr. Bobby and his staff are awesome. Very kind and professional. I would recommend seeing him if you are thinking about any kind of weight loss surgery.
I honestly don't know how he has so many great reviews. What was supposed to be a same day procedure turned into 5 days in the hospital with 4 pints of blood needed. All because he didn't prepare for, or do his job as a surgeon properly. He didn't suture me so my incision stayed open for weeks. The pain was unbearable and he didn't prescribe anything, not even Motrin. While in hospital he didn't bother to check in, and nsg couldn't get him to call them back when I was so anemic I was on Oxygen.

Dr. Bobby, overheard my conversation with his office staff, he ended up getting on phone; answered my question "I help your brothers all the time and perform bloodless surgery Gastric Bypass, just come down." I drove from Upland to Rancho Mirage. Dr. Bobby seminar was collegian level instructive as if he was teaching dr's explaining all the time. NOT ONE LOST LIFE TO DATE. Dr. Bobby worked with me. I am allergic to Morphine, he used another med to do surgery and saved my life. Forever great full

Dr. Bobby performed a VSG during October of 2016. Since my surgery I have come off of all of my diabetes and blood pressure medications. Blood pressure is normal. Sugars are getting lower every day. I feel incredible and have so much energy. Thank you Dr. Bobby!

My experience with Dr. Bobby has been one of the best. The only problem I had was with the Hospital and that was in no way related to Dr. Bobby. Once everything was was handled it was smooth sailing. I would do the whole process again, because it is literally saving my life. Thank you Dr. Bobby.
