I absolutely love Dr. Joshua Long. I recommend any one to give him a try. I was so scared and he and the staff were very warm and informative. I wish all Doctors were as amazing as he. The moment before surgery and my doctor prayed over me. Was the best feeling in the world.

I've been working with Dr. Long for nearly 2 years. I had a roux-n-y 13 years ago that worked at first, but didn't give the long term loss that I had expected. Dr. Long works tirelessly to know every aspect of my case to make the best outcome possible. He revised my procedure a few weeks ago. I couldn't be happier at this point. The best is yet to come. If you're on the fence, make an appointment to discuss. It's worth the rest of your life.

Had LapBand surgery 15 years ago and went to Dr Long for its removal. Also upper GI scope done for possible issues. Both procedures had excellent results given Dr Long's experience and care. Would highly recommend!

Unfortunately, I called his office and the receptionist was super rude towards me. I said in English, that I had a referral from my doctor to make an appointment with Dr. Long, and she said that I called the wrong number and gave a fax number to call to make the appointment. Then, I called her back and nicely told her about that she gave me a fax number instead of the office number, then she gave me the number for a pedriatric doctor, when she knew that I wanted the nutritionist. Then, I called her back and told her to stop playing games with me, and she put me on hold and called the office manager, and they were saying that I said a bad word, that I never use in my life. I had to call the doctor that I made the referral to ask for a different doctor. The lady who answered the phone, from the beginning had a horrible aptitude towards me, and gave me bad phone numbers to call. I do not need this...

A beautiful experience, from the moment you walk through the front door everyone helpful and efficient and friendly. Nursing staff put you at ease and able to answer questions. Dr Long was easy to talk to and answered all questions. Explained all procedures and timeframes. Never felt rushed into making a decision. Received a binder of information to take home and read.

I was very nervous about surgery but within minutes of being with him he made me feel comfortable and explains everything so well that I had no questions about the surgery procedure. From the start of my weight loss journey he and his staff have helped making this process as smooth as possible. Not only has the staff and Dr. Long adjust my surgery and pre op dates to fit me they also make contacting him easy when u have questions or concerns and I love that I only need 1 number for my doctor.

Hearing a compassionate professional bariatric specialist discuss my life issues without knowing me is humbling at least and promising at best. My husband and I visited Dr Long. We have now whatched the Webinar together as well. It is a solid commentary of what is to be expected. There are some good talking points, fear factor points, reality checks in it. I need to go back and watch the video again being sure I take notes for further discussion down the line. I am not as aprehensive now. Thx.

I saw Dr Long for the first time yesterday. I am overjoyed and beyond impressed with this gentlemen. He is professional, personable, caring, compassionate and I am honored he has accepted me as a patient. I came to him for a revision of a 25 year old gastric bypass and he did not shut the door in my face he gave me a game plan and showed me he cared. thank you.

I was given Dr. Long's name by an office at Denver Health because he treated patients with lapband. After having a long conversation regarding all my issues I was already schedule for an Upper GI, xray and barium swallow the same day. My lapband hadn't slipped like I originally thought. I was schedule for an EGD shortly afterwards turns out I have acid reflux and gastritis from the band never had issues before. Also, learned that its leaked. I am now in the process of being revised to bypass.

I had read an article about Dr. Long a year before surgery. Although my PCP was going to send me to another doc, I convinced her to send me here. It has been the best thing I have EVER done. Dr. Long and his staff walked me through every step from insurance approval, classes to get prepared, beginning to lose weight and change even before surgery, and everything since. I lost 105 lbs, am no longer diabetic, on medications or O2. I am an active grandmother now and I would not change a thing.

Dr. Long is such a wonderful doctor. Very caring and ready to answer any questions you may have. Going to a specialist for this type of procedure usually makes a person nervous, but Dr. Long has such a calming influence that you forget to be nervous! His staff is wonderful and always helpful to get you everything that you need to make this process as smooth as possible. He has everything there at his office so you don't have to make 5-6 different appointments. Very knowledgeable and amazing!
