Dr.Felix is the best bariatric Doctor in California! He did my gastric sleeve and my hiatal hernia fix. I could not get a doctor to touch me because of my pairitenitus when I was 21 and the fact that all my organs were stuck together. Dr.Felix did my surgery laparoscopically when every surgeon told me they could not and would have to fully open me up. Dr.Felix not only has the most experience but also the most confident doctor with a can do attitude. Dr.Felix is number #1 in bariatric surgery!
