Dr. Ramin Rooipour is a SICK doctor. He pressed SO hard on my stomach and made my hernia 100 times worse. I think he purposely made me worse so he could make money doing surgery on me. I have never been the same since I last saw him. I’ve been in horrible pain.

Dr. Roohipour is an excellent a caring doctor. Appreciate very much his quick and caring responses to my health needs. Originally had the bariatric sleeve which then had to be a by pass. This visit was to try to resolve issue nausea and vomiting. Dr. Roohipour performed indoscopy to widen passage of liquids. This seems to have been successful since I feel much better. I can now more easily can continue with my bariatric phases. I highly recommend Dr. Roohipour for bariatric surgeries.

I can’t say enough good things about my time with Dr. Roohipour. Him and his staff have been the most helpful group I’ve ever felt with. Thanks to him I’m well on my way towards my weight loss and health goals.

I really wanted to meet Dr. Roohipour and over the phone I was told by Zaid that it was important to meet Dr. Roohipour before continuing to talk about the financial cost. That made me feel like the company really cared about my health concerns, but when I got into the office Zaid would not let me meet with the doctor unless I fully committed to financial side. I told him finances wasn’t the issue, but my health questions were and he still wouldn't let me meet the doctor. It didn’t make since. He also said Roohipour would try his absolute best to meet my in network cost and they more than double that which wasn’t an issue. Everything was very misleading The girls in the front office were awesome. I just hoped for better service. I wasted my time going down there to meet a sales rep. Not impressed

It is impossible to say how much I trust and appreciate Dr Roohipour and his staff. One year ago I suffered what I thought was a hernia. I went to see Dr Roohipour and he instantly recognized that it was much more serious. Dr Roohipour had me rush to the hospital with my wife and meet him there after our consultation. I underwent emergency surgery and after opening me up, the situation was dire. I had a burst intestine with necrotising faciitis that had gotten into my intestinal lining and bladder. My prospects were bleak as most people die from this infection. After 2 very complicated surgeries and 21 days in the hospital I walked out. I am now fully recovered after 1 year under his care. He and his staff treated me better than I have ever been treated by a doctor in my life and they truly care. It is not saying enough to say that I owe my life to Dr Roohipour and his staff and I am eternally grateful for their care.

Dr. Roohipour and his team of professionals did an outstanding job repairing bilateral inguinal hernias. Dr. Roophipour is an excellent surgeon. Pain was well managed and scars are minimal. There were no infections or post-surgical complications of any kind. Dr. Roohipour and his entire office staff were professional, conscientious, well coordinated, prepared, courteous and exacting in their standards. They took care of every detail perfectly. This whole experience was top-notch from start to finish. I cannot recommend Dr. Roohipour and his team enough!

Dr. Roohipour is phenomenal. Had my laparoscopic hernia surgery with Dr. R 3 weeks ago. He's compassionate, caring and knowledgeable. His skills in the operation room made a difference. I barely had to take any pain medicine after surgery. His staff is very caring. Highly recommended ????

I had an ORBERA balloon placed by Dr. Roohipour about 8 months ago and had it removed after 6 months. I lost 62 lbs and more importantly my diabetes gone away. I no longer take Metfromin. Dr. R. is very attentive and he saw me every month. He was readily available on his phone every time I had a question. His staff are truly courteous. I recommend him to anyone who is seeking weight loss procedures. Dr. R. is the best!

I found Dr. R. very knowledgeable & spends the time needed to understand procedure; nurses at surgical center noted he was very good. The kind and attentive staff were great till I paid. Although they verbally presented info in the beginning, turned out to be incorrect compared to release papers to sign; I can't get copies of these docs, There were other admin issues, not very efficient. F/Up after procedure was great for a few days; still waiting on f/up appt.. Would not use again.

Dr. Roohipour is THE BEST BARIATRIC SURGEON IN TOWN! Excellent care, advice and service for my weight problem. The Torrance bariatric institute treats the whole person, I especially appreciated the surgeon Dr. Ramen, dietitian and psych support. They are efficient and kind. Get your care with the best and it’s here.

Initially came to Dr. Roohipour - interested in Orbera, but after discussing with him, opted for gastric sleeve operation. Had operation in September. Procedure went smoothly. I was working just a few days later. I am 60 pounds lighter, 6 months later. I feel great. This is probably the best investment I've ever made. My weight loss continuing now, but much slower pace than at the start. Only problem is that my wife won't stop groping me.

I am so happy with the care that I received from the staff at this office. I had Bariatric weight loss surgery on February 24th 2016. It's a process, lots of hoops to jump through, but the staff is with you every step of the way. Dr. Rohipoor is such an incredible surgeon, I was in good hands. The staff wants you to be successful at getting healthy, losing weight and ultimately feeling great. What I love about the staff, is that you never feel like just a number.

Dr. Roohipour took his time to explain everything to me about weight loss surgery and was a very nice man. After speaking with him, i am confident that i have chosen the right doctor to perform my bypass surgery. His office staff is wonderful as well and they get things done quickly.

Dr Roohipour is poor in following his patient after surgery. Does not respond in a timely fashion to critical questions from his patient. Some answers had to be obtained through third party. During a single post operative visit, the dr. did not even physically examine the patient, just talked. This corroborates the known reputation of this doctor.
