I was over 180 lb before I had the Lap band procedure, and now I weigh 148 lb and I’m happy with my results. Dr. David Davtyan is an amazing doctor and he made me feel calm during this whole process. He is knowledgeable in his field, and I would recommend him to anyone that needs help with their weight loss.

6 months ago I was a size 16 and I wasn’t happy with myself, but now that I had the gastric sleeve procedure I am happy to say I’m now a size 10, and I feel absolutely amazing. My husband sees that I’m very confident now and couldn’t be happier for me. Now I can travel a lot more comfortable because I don’t get tired at all anymore. Thank you Dr. Davtyan.

With the Orbera Procedure, my life has changed for the better. I lost a total of 67 lbs and I’m happier than I ever was before. I now go out with my friends and even take pictures with them. I’m more confident and Dr. Davtyan has really taken care of me in my weight loss journey. I appreciate the time he takes with answering questions and being available for me. Thank you.

I was banded by Dr. D on March 23, 2009. 5 days later I am feeling great and happy with my decision to choose Dr. D as my Surgeon. He is also a Lap Band Patient which makes him even more wonderful. This office seems to cater to a the Armenian peeps that you will find in Glendale. He also has an office @ Cedars Sinai in Beverly Hills. I would recommend that anyone who is interested in exploring Lap Band Surgery should make an appointment to meet Dr. D. - Wendy S.

. My goal was to lose at least 85 lbs and even though I only had the Lap Band procedure in February 2016, I’ve already lost 65 lbs. The procedure was very easy, I don’t even remember waking up, all of a sudden I was just at home. The surgery center he operates out of is very nice, clean and professional. I owe everything to Dr. Davtyan. He has been perfect through my whole journey and he is easily one of the nicest men I ever met in my life.

The doctor is kind and listens to you and he’s an educated man. He knows his stuff. The staff is very helpful and make you feel good. You never halve a problem when you call and they will always take the time for you. They don’t make you feel stupid for answering questions they’ve already answered. I drive up from Orange County and he’s worth the drive. I highly recommend Dr. Davtyan all the time. I even recommended him once to a stranger on a plane to Hawaii.

When we were researching the lap band, I talked to my personal doctor, who happens to be a patient of Dr. Davtyan and immediately recommended him. During the consultation with him, he ran tests and was very thorough, which I appreciated. Dr. Davtyan is stellar -- he’s had the band so he knows what it’s like to go through this. The whole team is very supportive and it’s like seeing family. They are our cheerleaders, our success is their success, but they really truly want you to be successful.

Dr. Davtyan really is a life saver. I feel so much better now, I don’t have issues with my leg anymore, I’m on half the dose of my thyroid medication, I’m more mobile, content with myself socially, and even my self esteem has improved. When I’m at the doctor’s office, I don’t feel like a number. I feel like he’s family and he’s always made me feel that way from the first day, which isn’t always the case with physicians.

Dr. Davtyan goes above and beyond for his patients. He really does treat you like family. I had good insurance when I started my treatment with Dr. Davtyan, but unfortunately I lost it and my new insurance doesn’t cover my visits. However, the doctor was very generous and provided me with a free deflation because he knew it would have been hard on me financially to pay for it without insurance. He doesn’t let anything get in the way of his professional care.

Dr. Davtyan was the best choice for me to go after my consultation I was very comfortable with choosing him as my surgeon and I now I'm so much happier with the progress that I'm already seeing in such a short amount of time everyone in his office is amazing anytime I have any questions they are happy to explain in ways where I don't need to worry and I couldn't be happier going with Dr. Davtyan I made the right choice going to him.

That’s the difference between Dr. Davtyan and other doctors – he’s very honest and really looks out for his patients. He gives me his real opinion and isn’t the type to give you things you don’t need. It’s hard these days to find someone as honest and ethical as him. I got great results because of Dr. Davtyan and highly recommend him.

Dr. Davtyan is just so invested in his patients, it felt like he was truly on my team and would do everything in his power to make sure I succeeded. I think the results speak for themselves. Dr. Davtyan is a fantastic doctor. If you need to lose weight, he’s the doctor for you.

As a healthcare professional, and a former Professor at the UCLA Medical School. I carefully researched who was the best trained and highest quality surgeon for LapBand’s in Southern California. Dr. Davtyan’s credentials are unmatched. He was trained as a surgeon and least invasive specialist at MD Anderson/ Univ. of Texas, the top Cancer Center in the World, and has done hundreds upon hundreds of Lap Band procedures outpatient.

Having the Gastric Band has changed my life. The emotional stress of yo-yo dieting is no longer, I can now enjoy food without worry. Thanks to Dr. Davtyan and the "band" now for the first time, I feel that I am the person that I was meant to be. You are my hero! Thank you for changing my life. You are the greatest doctor ever! I appreciate you more than you will ever know. Blessings to you, and your family. May you always be prosperous.
