This doctor is a liar. I gave him all the facts of my case and he agreed to do surgery. He didn't even bother to call and tell me it was cancelled. His office staff didn't even know what was going on. He finally got on the phone with me and told me several lies about why he was cancelling (rhe morning of the surgery).

I was referred to Dr. Wadiwala by one of his former patients who had gastric sleeve surgery. Upon meeting him and speaking with him, I knew I had made the right decision in choosing him to be my doctor. He is genuine and very caring. He greets you with a big smile on his face, and he takes the time to have a conversation with you, and answer any questions you have. When I had my surgery, he made me feel very safe in his care. My surgery was a big success! I absolutely recommend Dr. Wadiwala.

He met me 2 minutes before the operation and didn't to want to converse on my diagnosis or condition. Post-op I have not seen him. He left 2 sheets of paperwork for me and disappeared. Not only would I not recommend him- I'd warn people to choose a different surgeon.

I do not like leaving low reviews for anyone, however he seems to have no time for post operation follow up. I have made numerous attempts to contact him for a work excuse and gather other post operations information. His staff always states he is busy and they will pass along the information. He maybe a good surgeon but I suggest if you have questions be prepared to have to wait. I hope your experience is better than mine

Initial bariatric surgery and recovery was good. 2-3 years post surgery follow up very poor. Dr. Wadiwala was unconcerned with my new pain and digestive issues, mostly interested in any referrals I could send to him and any new procedures that I wanted done. Once he discovered I was just there to follow up for the new pain issue he said, I'll work it up if you want me to, otherwise let me know if the pain gets excruciating. I'll see a gastroenterologist who will know more about GI system.
