This doctor is the best. Last year in March 2019 I had my sleeve done with him and lost 90lb, he did a great job. 2 weeks ago I went back for a brachioplasty and I am so pleased with my result and it was a real easy recovery, he is just the best, I would go any time back to him

I would never recommend this doctor. He is a scam artist that only cares about money and not your health. He is uninterested in people's health and will try to push you into surgery.

I had a consultation with him for a lap band revision today. This guy is a real gem.!!! He has an awesome and comforting bed-side manner and genuinely cares about the patient . I've had s negative experience with the dr who did my original surgery and a different dr for revision consulatation.. This guy is the real deal -- can't recommend him enough (infact, I have already recommended him to my cousin!) -T

I felt that H. Joseph Naim was invasive and unprofessional. He interrupted me all the time and did not listen. How can a doctor not want to know about your symptoms? He didn't have patience or respect and he was in a hurry all the time. I was told that his schedule was packed for surgeries. I felt that H. Joseph Naim is not interested in dealing with people, but only making money with stomach reduction surgeries.
