Patient Comments (5)
in Boonton,NJ |
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
