Dr. Kukreja is very knowledgeable, personable, caring. He explained everything in terms I could understand, and even made sure my family was comfortable with the decisions. His staff is great as well. Every time I called I was able to get answers immediately. Surgery was a breeze with him and his team! Would recommend him a hundred times over!

Hes a real mess the worst of the worst in my opinion. He should not even be allowed to practice medicine, patient care is not his priority, getting your money is PERIOD, a rating of 1 is being kind. I would give him a - 150 if I could. If the POPE himself was standing in front of me and said SON would you recommend this guy I would say POPE run for you life. I am a veteran at the VA , when i begged for help to go on the outside the VA it was you can not go outside because we do the surgery here, another LIE is you have to move 40 miles away - another was you have to use CBOC clinic. Excuse after Excuse, After Excuse to do absolutely nothing, When I saw him my weight was 215 now my weight has been over 250 Using this guy will be the worst decision you EVER made that I GUARANTEE it may even cost you you life. There are rumors among other Veterans everyone talks WHY HE NO LONGER WORKS AT THE DALLAS VA. My opinion is he was a real snake in the grass. Ask Him Demand Answers

Dr Kukreja has been very helpful and honest with me from the beginning. We were not sure if having the gastric bypass to correct the sleeve would even work, but I can now keep some foods down whereas before I couldn't. I also had a pick line in my arm and I no longer have it nor do I take TPN for the nutrition. The surgery has been a major part of my life, and I thank Dr Kukreja for helping me.

Dr. Kukreja performed Sleeve Gastrectomy on me in August. My surgery was a success and he has been diligent about checking on his patients. I would highly recommend him for any weight loss procedure. He have me my life back and for that I’m grateful.

After what he has done to me physically, emotionally, mentally and financially I would never recommend this doctor for any surgical bariatric surgery. I almost lost my life due to this surgeon. Run away!!
