    Dr.Fromm did my sleeve surgery in April. This is one of the best things I have ever done! I’m so glad my friend recommended Dr. Fromm. Everyone in his office is great! I felt really great with the knowledge that Dr. Fromm and Susan Davies gave me how about the surgery and nutrition. I feel I will be successful in living a healthy life with the tools they have given me to continue on the journey. I would do it all over again as long as they are my team!

    Hello, I am a patient of Dr Fromm. In Oct of 2017, Dr Fromm did an awesome job with my rather difficult abdominal surgery. I was told that such a complicated and involved surgery should be done in Mayo, Denver or Omaha. Dr Fromm assured me he could do the procedure and have it out turn out well. He in fact did just that!! I would recommend Dr Fromm to anyone out there needing his services, he was confident throughout the process and delivered!! In a nutshell he "Rocked the House!!)

    Dr. Fromm and his team are amazing. Everyone works so well together. I felt like they knew me and cared about me. All of my questions were answered and my concerns addressed. I felt like part of the team. I especially appreciated the way they coordinated my visits so I could see everyone I needed to see in one visit to the clinic, with no waiting. They have perfected the art of patient care.
