Dr Paragi did my gastric sleeve surgery after my insurance was denied when already far into the process with a different surgeon. I’m so glad I switched - he was great! I never felt uncomfortable or rushed. He was attentive before the surgery and visited afterwards, checking up on me every step of the way. Very professional, kind, and supportive.

I would like to start off my review with saying that Dr. Prakash Paragi changed my life . He is very professional and as well makes you feel comfortable and his staff is great very nice . I started my bariatric journey in the end of January weighing in at 285. Just had my VSG June 13th weighing 252 and he did an amazing job . I am now 8 weeks post op and weigh 213. Best decision I ever made I highly recommend him.

Dr Paragi and his staff take excellent care of his patients. I had my VSG surgery by him in July 2017 and since that time I have lost about 120lbs and am still losing weight to get to my goal about 40lbs more. I went from a size 24 jeans to a size 10. It is not always easy because of my past poor food habits but it is well worth it. He gives support pre and post surgery for the patient's best outcome. His office is beautiful and well-managed. There is a wait for an appt but well worth i

Began my bariatric weight loss journey with Dr Paragi in September 2017. It has been a fantastic experience. Dr Paragi is very professional, knowledgeable and provides thorough,detailed education. He partners with quailty nutrionists who take personal care throughout your journey. He is clear to communicate that your experience throughout the weight loss process is in your hands and it's effectiveness is based on your commitment to the program. I have had successful results and thank Dr Paragi.

Dr. Paragi is an excellent surgeon. His Gastric Sleeve surgery on me was well done & I recovered quickly. The after care, however, is quite lacking. I have only seen the doctor 3 times for cursery visits left lots to be desires--Hello, you look ok, goodbye--& I had to wait an hour for that! I can't see him again since all his aftercare hrs. are moved to 3:30 on. Staff is unfriendly. "Shrink" on duty insulting. Nutritionist interested in herself only. Would NOT recommend
