Dr. McDermott and his staff were so helpful every step of the way. While I was in surgery they discovered a hernia and repaired it. I didn’t have any issues after surgery and am really happy with the care I received.

Dr. McDermott is a very caring, professional and thorough surgeon, in whom I trust. He had my mental, physical and emotional concerns covered pre-op and then gave me a tool to use to achieve my personal goals. I reccomend he and his staff to people seeking my input on long term weight loss needs.

Dr. McDermott did my husband’s gastric sleeve surgery. I was totally blown away by his office staff. We were referenced by our name and did not mind answering questions. They helped us every step of the way through the whole process. He saved my husband’s life. My husband had a bowel obstruction...more
