Dr Hans schmidt is a genius. Words can't describe how intelligent this man is. He saved my life I would recommend him to anyone. I can't complain about weight loss so far I'm dropping weight at the gym burning 500 cal a day. Thank you Dr schmidt. I will have other patients to come and see u

Loved working with Dr Schmidt to achieve my journey to lose weight through a gastric sleeve. He was extremely knowledgeable, informative and caring. He gave me a confidence level that made me know I made the right decision for me. The surgery was performed in January 2016 and it has been the best decision I ever made in my life. I would whole heartedly recommend Dr Schmidt to anyone considering a bariatric procedure of any kind.
