I would love to send before and after pictures to Dr. Boynton I went from 260 to 130. He's my life saver. Had my surgery in 2010 here it is 2016 and I'm still thin with NO compilations. He did an amazing job AND you can barely see my scars. ??
in Beverly, NJ |
I was a Gastric by pass, in 2003 and I did not have any bad issues the procedure was flawless and I lost all of my medicines 2 Cholesterol, 3 Breathing, C- Pap 2 Blood Pressure. Now its just vitamins. His demeanor made me feel like he cared more than most Surgeons. To this day, I had a foot surgery and he was there on another case and remembered me and still was very hospitable. Anyone going through a procedure with him I'll tell you from personal experience since 2003 . The Best
