    Dr. Caruana is an exceptional surgeon. He explained everything thoroughly as to why my body could not physically lose the weight on its own. He made me feel very comfortable and I felt at ease with my decision (VSG) and I am glad I went through with it. I definitely recommend Dr. Caruana and Synergy Bariatrics if you are considering WLS.

    Yes I have. I had gastric bypass surgery on 2/22/12 and have lost 80 pounds and am now having issues with having difficulties eating which is partly because I now have a hernia. The surgery went well and everything, but now almost 5 years out I am having these issues!

    I would and HAVE highly recommended Synergy Bariatrics and Dr. Caruana to anyone considering weight loss surgery! I could not have had a more positive experience from initial consultation to now almost 8 months post-VSG surgery--from the helpful staff, Dr. Caruana, PA-C Christina, Nutritionists, the Pharmacist, nurses, to the Bariatric Support Group administrators. The website and on-site health education was instrumental in my success...and saved my life. 85 lbs down & counting, 0 complications

    I have been treating with Dr. Caruana for 8 years. He is very caring and friendly. He explains everything to you, in terms the patient can understand. I recommend him to anyone seeking a weight loss surgical consultation.
