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.
