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!!!!
