Dr. Sowemimo takes time to explain and offer guidance for positive outcomes. I highly reccommend if getting bariatric surgury or if considering. I had the Sleeve surgury the week before Thanksgiving and my experience was very positive, The level of professionalism and care ranks among the highest in all my experiences dealing with Dr.'s. Also accessibility to Dr. Sowemimo, staff, nutritionists, etc is great. Thank you Dr. S!

My experience with Prime Surgicare and Dr Sowemimo and the rest of the group has been a very positive one. Dr Togbe was my primary doctor of the group but he is no longer with them. I have transitioned to Dr Sowemimo's care. I have attended Dr Sowemimo's pre-surgery seminar, viewed his you tube presentations and now have had my 6 month post surgery telemed visit with him. I find his knowledge enlightening and encouraging. Lori's nutrition information and assistance has been an excellent guide on my weight loss journey. Always encouraging and never judgemental. They are always available for questions and advice. I highly recommend Dr Sowemimo and his group.

I was sleeved on 5/31/18 & can honestly say that this surgery has completely changed my life! I'm happy, healthy, and have more energy and a zest for life, at 53, than at 23! Dr. Seun and his staff are beyond words! The support I have received & continue to receive, has truly made the world of difference, as I continue my journey. Dr. Seun is extremely dedicated and devoted to his patients. He's an unbelievable surgeon! I would highly recommend him!

After finding out that I had a heart condition, I decided to take control of my health. PrimeSurgicare and Dr. Sowemimo were instrumental in helping me. In Jan 2019 I weighed 255 pounds and could barely walk half a mile without becoming winded. I had gastric sleeve surgery in May 2019 and now I weigh 190 pounds and just passed a stress test with flying colors. So one year later I feel I’m well on my way to a better me. PrimeSurgicare provided me with the comprehensive tools, aids, and guidance I needed to get better. I cannot thank the doctors, nurses and staff more.

I can’t recommend Dr S and staff enough. Dr Sowemimo will answer all of your questions and the staff will treat you like family. My surgery was done in May 2018. Down about 90lbs . I am much healthier and feel 10 years younger. Choosing Dr S and his team is a no- brainer! Thanks Doc.

After watching my husbands success journey, with the help from Dr Seun, I decided to do it myself. It’s been 3 months, and I feel great— down 53 pounds, off 2 of my medications for Crohn’s disease and one is a less of a dose, and working on getting off my high blood pressure meds and sleep apnea issue—- this would never have happened with the help and support of Dr Seun and prime surgery care. Dr. Seun helped before, during and after the surgery process and is truly are wonderful man.
