    Dr. Zhang and his team were awesome. I was very nervous about having Bariatric Surgery, but after meeting him I knew he was the right surgeon. He has a calm demeanor and great bedside manner. I doing great after my sleeve gastrectomy.

    I can't thank Dr. Zhang and his bariatric team enough. Had Robotic Gastric Sleeve 8 months ago. Have lost 90 lbs and I don't need to take anymore medications and wear that annoying CPAP machine. God Bless Dr. Zhang!

    Dr. Zhang is a fantastic doctor and surgeon. From my first consultation visit to my post surgery visits, he has been great. I had gastric bypass and my gallbladder removed. Surgery went well and I was back at work only after a couple of weeks.

    I was diagnosed with colon cancer but I was lucky to be referred to Dr. Zhang. He performed my colon surgery on the robot through incisions. I went home after only 2 days in the hospital. I had almost no pain and was back to work in a week.

    Excellent Surgeon. I had a inguinal hernia for many years and did not get it fixed because I was nervous about surgery. After I met Dr Zhang I felt confident he was the right surgeon. He fixed it robotically through small incisions. I had no pain after the surgery and was back to work after only 2 days.
