I graduated from Ohio State University College of Medicine and Public Health and then did an Internal medicine residency and am board certified in surgery and surgical critical care.
Taking care of patients who are struggling with obesity and medical co-morbidities that could be alleviated by weight loss surgery has become my passion. I understand the disease process unlike any other bariatric surgeon, due to my experience as an internist and surgeon.
In my mind, the most prized possession a person has is their health. If you decide to have bariatric surgery, there is no better place to come than to Southern Nevada Bariatrics. I understand what you are going through and the frustrations you have had struggling with weight loss. Bariatric surgery is a tool that will help you loose the weight and gain your life and happiness back.
Hope to see you soon.
