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.
