Pueblo, CO |
Dr. Metz is very friendly and honestly cares about his patients! Although I do not quailfy for gastric surgery, I appreciate his honesty. He explained to me why due to other medical reasons I was unable to have the surgery rather than just doing it. And for that I am grateful.

Dr Metz is an excellent dr. He saved my life. Every visit and appointment is very pleasurable and I never leave his office with any questions. He is very thorough and very professional. His office is the cleanest I've ever been in. He is an amazing surgeon. I knew everything that was to be expected before i even went in for surgery. I recommend him to everyone I know.
in Parker, Co |
I was pretty nervous when I decided to see Dr. Metz for my procedure. When I arrived at my first appointment, his staff made me feel welcomed. They ALWAYS answered all of my questions. Dr. Metz is an amazing guy. He is very involved in his care with you. He made me feel comfortable in the decision to have this procedure. I would definitely give well above a 10+ rating to him and his staff. They helped me get my life back.

in Denver, CO |
Dr. Metz performed bariatric surgery on me. It couldn't have been a better experience. He listened to all of my questions and concerns and gave clear, helpful non-judgemental responses. I felt that he was concerned about.me as a person, not just a patient.. In speaking with other patients when attending the support groups he had, virtually everyone had similar high regard for him and his services.He's terrrific.
in Denver, CO |
I found Dr. Metz very easy to talk with regarding the issues regarding my concerns. He was very through and explained the pros and cons about each procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Metz for those who are seeking any type of weight loss surgery.
in Aurora, CO |
Dr. Metz is a skilled and professional surgeon. Since having my gastric sleeve, I've referred about several friends to him. We are all happy with our results and his care!
