    Dr. Roohipour is THE BEST BARIATRIC SURGEON IN TOWN! Excellent care, advice and service for my weight problem. The Torrance bariatric institute treats the whole person, I especially appreciated the surgeon Dr. Ramen, dietitian and psych support. They are efficient and kind. Get your care with the best and it’s here.

    Initially came to Dr. Roohipour - interested in Orbera, but after discussing with him, opted for gastric sleeve operation. Had operation in September. Procedure went smoothly. I was working just a few days later. I am 60 pounds lighter, 6 months later. I feel great. This is probably the best investment I've ever made. My weight loss continuing now, but much slower pace than at the start. Only problem is that my wife won't stop groping me.

    I am so happy with the care that I received from the staff at this office. I had Bariatric weight loss surgery on February 24th 2016. It's a process, lots of hoops to jump through, but the staff is with you every step of the way. Dr. Rohipoor is such an incredible surgeon, I was in good hands. The staff wants you to be successful at getting healthy, losing weight and ultimately feeling great. What I love about the staff, is that you never feel like just a number. They get to know you and make y

    Dr. Roohipour took his time to explain everything to me about weight loss surgery and was a very nice man. After speaking with him, i am confident that i have chosen the right doctor to perform my bypass surgery. His office staff is wonderful as well and they get things done quickly.

    Dr Roohipour is poor in following his patient after surgery. Does not respond in a timely fashion to critical questions from his patient. Some answers had to be obtained through third party. During a single post operative visit, the dr. did not even physically examine the patient, just talked. This corroborates the known reputation of this doctor.
