Dr. Mirza was my surgeon for my gastric sleeve. Not only was he amazing, but his staff was as well. They helped every step of the way and made sure I was supported before, during, and after surgery. I am one year out from my surgery and have lost 150 pounds! I am half the person I used to be! If you are looking into any Bariatric surgeries, use Dr. Mirza. You will not regret it.

Listen please! Dr. Mirza and his team are beyond amazing... Dr. Mirza is very informative, from the first meeting and beyond. His bedside manners are one of those that a patient desires from their doctor. He makes you want to have surgery all over again!! DR. MIRZA IS THE BESTTTTT. Oh and I can't forget his nutritionist Ms. Sheila. She is tiny, but a force. She will fuss at you and get you on the right track. And, she knows when you are lying, LOL. I loveeee Dr. Mirza and his team.

Dr. Mirza is the best bariatric surgeon. I am very picky, and I did tons of research before deciding on Dr. Mirza. He has the best bedside manner, he is honest, caring, and the communication between doctor and patient is amazing. I wish all doctors were like Dr. Mirza. He will go over every detail possible, answer any questions, and alleviate any concerns you have. He will tell you the truth and not sugarcoat it, but in a professional way. He will spend time with you and not make you feel rushed
