Should you be considering weight loss surgery, I would wholeheartedly recommend that you don't finalize your choice of surgeon before you meet with Dr. Nicholas Bertha and his team. From start to finish the office is present and helpful and they provide you with a road map on how to get where you want to go. Dr. Bertha himself is calm, collected, takes all the time the patient requires and certainly knows what he's doing. I would recommend him and his team to anybody.

Dr. Bertha is an incredible surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone interested in Bariatric surgery. He has great bedside manner and takes his time to listen and answer any questions. I can't say enough wonderful things about him and his staff. Everyone is so attentive and caring. Sue, the NP, would call to check up on me and showed true concern. Patti, the front desk receptionist, helped me schedule any necessary appts needed for my surgery without hesitation. Love everyone there!

Dr. Bertha is an incredible surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone interested in Bariatric surgery. My boyfriend is going to him next year! He has great bedside manner. He takes his time to listen and answer any questions or concerns. I can't say enough wonderful things about him and his staff. Everyone in so attentive, caring and understanding. I had a rough recovery and Sue, the Nurse Practitioner, would call to check up on me and showed true concern. Amazing practice and staff!

I am not exaggerating when I say that Dr. Bertha saved my life. His straightforward, no pulling punches approach to your care was a great motivator in my journey. It has been over 7 years since my gastric bypass surgery and I have lost a total of 170 pounds and am able to do everything I couldn't do before. Thank you Dr. Bertha. My family and I are forever in your debt.

Dr. Bertha and his staff are knowledgeable, professional, compassionate, caring and understanding. No questions went unanswered. He and his staff were extremely supportive prior to surgery and post surgery as well. Dr. Bertha is tops in his field. If you are considering Bariatric Surgery, see Dr. Bertha first.

Dr Bertha is amazing. His bedside manner is so rare these days. He actually takes to time to listen and addresses all concerns, because he genuinely cares about every one of his patients. You may occasionally have to wait a couple of minutes to see him (because he's giving another patient the time they need), but it's a tradeoff I'm willing to make. Even the staff is phenomenal. I had surgery with him twice, and can only say, I highly recommend scheduling an appointment!!!!
