I saw my provider and asked him if I could have the "gastric sleeve". I went to classes for three months before I saw a doctor who would perform the surgery. I saw Dr. Irani, and was very glad I had him for the doctor who was going to do the surgery. Dr. Irani is very personable, and welcomes you with a handshake and a hug..well a hug if you're a woman. Everytime I see him, he is so friendly and will answer any questions I have. GREAT DOCTOR!!! I highly recommend Dr. Irani.

I would highly recommend Dr. Irani. He performed a lumpectomy and hernia surgery on me several years ago. I was extremely happy with the outcomes of both procedures. I was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer last month and needed a surgeon to remove the cancer. There was no question as to which surgeon I wanted to do the surgery. Dr. Irani is a very kind, caring, compassionate man and an excellent surgeon.

Very poor follow up after surgery, still have pain pain and more pain
Bakersfield, CA |
I was very satisfied with Dr. Irani and the outcome of my surgery. He took the time during every visit to answer my questions, ordered tests to rule out possible alternative explanations for my symptoms before recommending surgery. Dr. Irani even encouraged me to get a second opinion.
in Bakersfield, CA |
Huge Abdomenal Hernia repair. AWESOME!!!!!! Absolutely NO pain. No problems. Surgery was perform Thursday, 12/8. Doctor told me to schedule a followup appointment at his office on Tuesday or no later than Thursday, 7 days after surgery. Front desk refused to schedule an appointment in compliance with doctors orders. Did not see doctor for 12 days after surgery.

My 1st appointment I was able to get in within one week from when I called. Waiting for an appointment after arriving was short (less than 30 minutes for 2 appointments). My surgery went well. He carefully explained my condition and his proposed procedure.

Dr. Irani is an outstanding doctor and a very caring individual. He performed laparoscopic surgery on me and did an amazing job. I healed very quickly and was able to leave the hospital within a few days. Dr. Irani makes sure that his patients are in good care post surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Irani to anyone considering laparoscopic surgery.

in Tehachapi, CA |
I am a retired R.N. who practiced many years in the Los Angeles area. Since living in Tehachapi, this is the first time I have needed a general surgeon. After consulting with three recommended surgeons in Bakersfield I chose Dr. Iraini to perform a colon resection. He was the only one that indicated that he understood my request to have the surgery done as laparoscopic if at all possible.His experience,skill,and compassion led to a very successful surgery and a grateful patient in recovery.
in Bakersfield, CA |
Dr. Irani is professional and compassionate. He checked with the refering physician to make sure the surgery was necessary before scheduling. The laparoscopic procedure went smoothly; everything to expect was explained clearly in advance. I was back to normal activities within a few days. I could not ask for a more skilled or caring physician. I have no hesitation highly recommending him to friends and family. I am grateful to him for his services.
