I had a wonderful experience with Dr Atwa and his staff throughout the entire process of removing my gastric lap-band; however, the anesthesiology group he selected (LONG ISLAND ANESTHESIA LLP) was not in-network with my health insurance plan and furthermore, they failed to notify me of the substantial out of pocket cost. A year later, LIAP LLP referred me to Richard Sokoloff, Attorney at Law who put me in collections, froze my bank account, put me in court like a criminal and sent me the Marshall to confiscate my belongings. I believe that it is extremely important to give patients the best and most cost-effective options for services according to their policy. At the same, I believe Dr Atwa should be more careful in selecting the interdisciplinary group that support his work, so that, his professionalism and integrity wont't be jeopardize or dishonored. I would highly recommend, before you undergo any surgical procedure to request a different group of professionals other than LONG I

I had the gastric sleeve and hernia surgery together. Dr Atwa was. Recommended to me by the surgeon that took out my gallbladder. He said if he or a member of his family ever needed surgery he would use Dr Atwa. I don't think you can get a better recommendation then that. I am so pleased with my surgery, lost 60lbs in six months! Thank you Dr Atwa??

I had gastro by pass surgery on Dec 29, 2015. To date I have lost about 100 lbs. I went from 270 (Im 6' tall) to 167. I no longer need blood pressure meds, cholesterol meds, acid reflux meds, sleep apnea machine, I do now take vitamins. Dr Atwa has added years to my life, and life to my years. How can you thank someone enough for that? I'm enjoying life again...As is my family! I would give a million stars if they would let me. The staff at the Dr's office and at St Charles was outstanding.
