Pompano Beach, FL |
Please run from this so called doctor!!!! Not only does he NOT do the lap band fills, he has a novice who doesn't seem to know what he is doing. I had the misfortune to go to him after having another doctor put in the lap band. This man is a nightmare. I got an infection from the surgery HE performed and had to go to the hospital. Not only did Dr. Wizman NOT answer the hospital calls but he did not even see me for 36 hours. This is the most unprofessional Doctor EVER!!!!

I am absolutely thrilled with the treatment I received from Dr. Wizman. The surgery was very effective - I am down 75 pounds and counting in a year and feel like I'm in the best shape of my life. He is kind, compassionate and also funny but most importantly he knows exactly what he is doing. I had virtually no complications or side effects. Having this procedure done was one of the best decisions I have ever made. If you are considering Bariatric surgery I highly recommend you meet with Dr. Wizm

Dr. Wizman truly cares for his patients and I brag about him on a regular basis. He is by far the best surgeon in town. I have traveled from out of town just to have him to be the one to do a procedure on me. I trust him with my life. Great doctor, great surgeon and great guy!
