      I had Loop Duodenal Switch surgery with Dr. Bilof in December 2015 and my life has changed forever. Dr. Bilof is an excellent, skilled surgeon and I have had not one complication. It's been an awesome recovery and in 6 months I've lost 80 lbs. I was highly recommended to him by 2 friends who had successful weight loss surgery and I can see why. I had multiple pre-op appointments with him and not once did I feel rushed or pressured. He answered every question I had and was very patient with me, e
      Morristown, NJ |
      Overall I had a negative experience. He came highly recommended, however he does not get to know his patients. He placed a removable filter in me prior to my procedure stating that it was necessary. The filter a few months later was banned and unable to be removed in surgery. Current medical procedures/protocols were not followed. Dr. Bilof has questionable ethics. He is more concerned with money than his patients well being. A long list of unacceptable behavior for a physician.

      Dr. Bilof has an outstanding reputation and has helped many patients that I know. Dr. Bilof's work has changed the life of so many people and I highly recommend him to all my friends and family.
      in Cliffwood Beach, NJ |
      I was apprehensive about doing the DS, which Dr. Bilof recommended, and I asked him to convince me why I should choose that surgery. He responded that he wasn?t going to try to convince me because it was ultimately my choice. He gave me advice that changed my mind; he said you have to be happy with the results. I decided right then that I wanted to go all the way that I could and didn?t want to look back and wonder ?what if?, so I chose the recommended surgery and I haven?t looked back!

      All the staff is amazing. They boost your confidence every time! I was scared at 408 lbs and now I'm down 64lbs in 4 months! Best decision I ever made!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
