Dr. Anwar is the single worst physician I have ever had. His medical knowledge and capabilities are sub-par at best. All of my experiences with him were awful. Following a sleeve gastrectomy, Anwar discharged me after on night. I went home but was hospitalized the next day with horrible pneumonia. Anwar's incompetence almost got me killed and was beyond unpleasant. Don't trust this incompetent egomaniac. My surgery has only been marginally successful. I think he did something wrong.

Hands down a very smart and talented surgeon. He tells you the truth and he does expect you to get through some hoops. It took me exactly 5 months to get into the surgery room! COnsult with him, if you dont like him go elsewhere but you will! He cares.

I love Dr. Anwar and his staff. Everyone is friendly, kind, patient, and understanding and they really listen. I had a lap band put in 8 years ago, a horrible experience. Dr. Anwar removed it and performed a gastric bypass. It was like night and day. I don't feel like a number or that this is just a money making scheme. I feel the staff cares about me. the follow up is excellent--I go in every three months--and they all remember me and my issues. I highly recommend Dr. Anwar and his team.
