Dr. Cywes is beyond an amazing doctor. I came to know Dr. Cywes in Sept. of 2006. He became my weight loss doctor as well as my doctor that saved my life that no other doctor could figure out as to what was happening to me. Dr. Cywes worked day and night to make sure I was at 100%. There truly is no other doctor in world like him. Thanks Dr. C. for everything you have always done to take care of me. Deana O-H.

He saved our 8 1/2 year old daughter's life when removing a 20+ cm malignant mass and 1/2 of her liver in 2015. We can't praise him enough! Very straight to the point and very good at what he does. Thank you Dr. Cywes!

I don't recommend this doctor for kids, maybe he is good with adults but with kids he is not the best doctor. He confused the diagnostic of my child and he did a treatment without having knowledge of the illness of my kid. definitely I don't recommend him for you son or daughter

He's awesome treats the mind then the body he really cares he shoots from the hip that's very refreshing because if need to see a bariatric physician you're at the end of the road No better physician great bedside manner's and spend the extra time nobody else would He's also available by Tex 24/7 unreal thank you for saving my life Chad

If not for Dr Cywes. I would probably be dead by now. I got my band in 2005, and everything is still great. It is the best decision I have ever made. Dr. Cywes is the most personable, and real doctor I have ever had. I take no medications for anything. I am now 51 years old. I am so much better! Thank You Dr. Cywes. I would not be here if it was not for you!

Dr. Cywes does more than just place a band or sleeve, etc... He is with you through the entire weightloss journey. If it weren't for him I would still be almost 400 lbs and feeling helpless. I am so blessed to have found him and his staff.

Dr. Cywes is the real deal! He gives you the knowledge and tools to be better for yourself! Real help for the obese. He has saved me from myself!
in Margate, FL |
I was so nervous about having the sleeve because of prior surgeries, (6) on the abdomen and there were a lot of adhesions. Dr. Cywes assured me that he was entereing w/ caution and if he was not able to perform the procedure he would close me up. The surgery was a success and the trust and faith I had in Dr. Cywes paid off!!!!!! I love his direct approach, he doesn't beat around the bush!
