Dr. Irani did my sigmoid colectomy six years ago and recently repaired my hiatal hernia. Both events were exceptional. His skill and knowledge as a surgeon is outstanding and his staff is very supportive.

I needed an emergency bypass revision, was in extreme pain and had almost 100% blockage. Dr Irani and his staff expedited everything I needed to get authorization and get into surgery. It was accomplishing and after surger with Dr Irani I was a new person. No more pain I reintroduce food per Dr Irani’s instructions and did a complete turnaround. Dr Irani basically saved my life. Highly recommend Dr Irani and hi staf!!!

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr Irani, 12 years ago when I had my 1st surgery. Unfortunately, life happens and I've needed his services a total of 5 times, the most recent surgery being the most intense. I am 10 days postop recovering remarkably well, other than lifting I am back to my normal activities. Dr Irani is an INCREDIBLE surgeon with impeccable bed side manner that has remained consistent over the years, his quiet confidence makes me feel safe. He. Is. The. Best.

My experience with Dr. Irani has been nothing but exceptional. He is patient, caring and explains your procedure with clarity and depth. While under the care of Dr. Irani, his staff, and his PA Ivan, I felt confident and at ease that I was getting the best care possible. I would recommend Dr. Irani without reservation. Thank you so much for taking such good care of me.

I saw Dr Irani for a WLS consultation and ultimately had the surgery done on July 11th 2016. That man is the most amazing human being,I have ever met. He is soft spoken, gentle, sweet, caring and goes above and beyond the standard of care a patient needs. I have had the best care in the almost 16 months since my surgery! It is not just him, but his office staff and his PA Ivan. All amazing people! I would recommend him with my eyes closed! I am very blessed for having had him as my Surgeon!

Pre-op care was outstanding. When I called back a week after surgery with a problem, I was told I had to wait a week to be seen. The office staff has scheduled me for follow up appointments TWICE on days when there were no providers in the office! Dr. Irani didn't even come to the hospital on the day I was discharged. Very poor post-op care. Would not recommend this doctor to anyone!
