Performed bariatric sleeve on me 5.5 years ago. Lost 75 lbs..only gained 10 back. Just the friendliest most personable doctor/surgeon I've ever met..but more importantly he did an excellent job.

10:00am appointment means you will be seen at 12:30-1pm......RIDICULOUS! PATIENTS TIME IS VALUABLE TOO! No one should have to sit and wait for over 2 hours to see a doctor especially WHEN THEY HAVE AN APPOINTMENT! DO THEY KNOW WHAT THE WORD APPOINTMENT MEANS....IT MEANS YOU WILL BE SEEN AT OR AROUND THE TIME OF THE TIME SCHEDULED.....NOT 2 OR 3 HOURS LATER. They obviously do not know how to plan, schedule, and run an efficient doctor office. do NOT use this office!

Pissedoff in NY – Oct 27, 2017
Dr. Braithwaite is an excellent surgeon. He is a life saver and has helped me so much! He has great bed side manners and he is a very caring doctor. He is honest and is very intelligent. I would not be here if it wasn't for Dr. Braithwaite. Despite a few complication I had before seeing Dr. Braithwaite, I am so happy I selected him to be my my surgeon. I have never met a surgeon who is so caring. I highly recommend Dr. Braithwaite. His team and nurses are great. Thank You Dr. Braithwaite!

Ana Siddiqi – Jun 03, 2017
I met Dr. Brathwaite June 2004 after suffering 6 mo. of complications from Gastric by-pass performed by another surgeon. The Night I met Dr. Brathwaite I knew I met "My Personal Angel". Dr. Brathwaite is the nicest, kindest, most caring and compassionate doctor. From his Associates to his Staff . When you are a patient of Dr. Brathwaite you feel instantly at peace that everything is going to be ok. I can't say enough about him except that he saved my life and i will forever be grateful to him.
