I wish I could give her more than 5 stars. I went to Dr. Kurian after having complications from the gastric sleeve that was done by a previous surgeon I had to have the sleeve converted to a bypass as well as needing a hiatal hernia repair. Dr. Kurian and the people in her office were wonderful. She went above and beyond to get my surgery approved. My surgery was a huge success and Dr. Kurian was a huge inspiration and support for me. She’s warm, caring and very talented. I am two years out and she is still my biggest supporter. I’ve surpassed my goal weight (which she always told me I could do) and I was able to have skin removal surgery recently. She changed my life and I recommend her to everyone I speak to.

Can't say enough great things about her. She rocks. You will absolutely adore her and her bedside manor is awesome. More so, she was given a gift with her skillful hands and knowledge that is second to none. How fortunate to have had her do my surgery. She becomes more than your caring and compassionate doctor. She becomes part of your family. Someone you can really to talk and not be judged for your faults. Thank you Dr. Marina Kurian for all you have done and all you continue to do.
