Dr. Kurian is the most caring doctor. I had multiple procedures in one day and she was beyond brilliant with everything she did for me. She really cares about her patients, and she is masterful as a surgeon. Even the follow up visits are amazing and caring. Her staff is warm, welcoming, and answers all your questions. Shanise and Avis really helped me alot before and after the surgery. I cannot say enough about Dr. Kurian she is a lifesaver! My procedure was complex but, she got it done and explained everything to me. I just adore her and her staff!

Dr. Kurian is an excellent doctor. She’s been helping me, another family member, and several “family” friends for years. We all had/have the same experience with Dr. Kurian, she’s always goes above and beyond for me, and I’m a handful. Most of all I’m extremely grateful for Dr. Kurian.

Dr. Kurian performed a vertical sleeve procedure on me on July 31st 2020. I've followed her instructions before surgery and after surgery and in less than 6 months, I've lost 90lbs. I still have more to go but I'm very happy with Dr. Kurian. She's always been approachable, she's always answered all of my questions, including the ones that raised concerns with me from watching YouTube videos on this subject. Youtube videos on the subject have been very beneficial but nothing has been more beneficial than actually having the surgery done by Dr. Kurian. She doesn't just claim victory knowing that I have more to go but she helps me to recognize that I'm moving in the right direction so long as I follow her plan. She literally wrote the book on this subject and I'm sure I could not have made a better choice. I'm a male, 5'9", started at 340, currently at 249 after 5.5 months. This isn't easy but it's 1,000% worth it. Her office workers and supporting staff are excellent. Thanks!

Dr. Kurian was highly recommended by my sister who had weight loss surgery over 10 years ago. Even my mother and cousin who came with my sister to her visits speak well of Dr. Kurian as her bedside manner leaves a lasting impression on loved ones of her patients as well. I would not feel confident with anyone else performing weight loss surgery, except Dr. Kurian. She's empathetic, smart, and has a really dynamic personality. If you research her, you will find that's she at the top of her game in her field.

Dr. Kurian is an extremely skilled, knowledgeable and compassionate physician who considers every patient individually to put together the best treatment plans to ensure the patients success. Her office staff is just as knowledgeable and compassionate as Dr. Kurian, but above all, they efficiently and effectively assist every patient with navigating the administrative aspect of their care. Dr. Kurian and her staff understand that as patients we are often anxious and sometimes scared, so they do everything possible to ensure the safest and most comfortable patient experience. Dr. Kurian is one of the best and most competent physicians I've had the pleasure of attending to me. I do and will always highly recommend Dr. Kurian to any of my friends and family.

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.
