in Palatine, IL |
I first went to Dr. Ujiki as a referral from my general doctor, Jory Natkin. I trust Dr Natkin without question. Dr Ujiki discussed different bariatric surgery: Gastric Bypass & Loop DS. With Dr Ujiki's guidance I decided on Loop DS. Unfortunately, I had reflux. Dr Ujiki explained that reflux gets worse w/Loop DS and actually gets better w/RNY. We switched. My surgery went great! I am only 4 weeks in & I've never felt better! Everything about my experience with Dr Ujiki is excellent!
