Absolute worst doctor ever! He performed what was supposed to be a very simple routine surgery. He made a mistake leaving me unable to eat. He did a second surgery to correct the first mistake resulted in a bigger mess than the first surgery. Had to travel to teaching hospitals to attempt to correct - still dealing with complications 5 years later. If you want problems the rest of your life - he is your guy - otherwise run as fast as you can to someone else!

Dr. Edward is simply the best gastric surgeon in the United States in my opinion. Almost zero scars and a piece of cake (LOL) with my gastric sleeve. A 40 minute procedure. Aftercare was perfect. He is caring and always available and appointments can be made with only a short wait time and immediately if there is an emergency. Great bedside manner and immense experience in minimally invasive surgery. See him without hesitation and as a first choice Mission Hospital surgical weight loss surgeon.
