I had surgery in August of 2016. A year later, I can not be more happy with the results. Dr. Belsley isn't going to hold your hand and tell you you are great. He is going to be real and give real answers. Formerly my BMI was 47. It is now 27. I put a lot of hard work in too, yoga, running, etc, which all became easier to do once I lost my first 60 lbs. Don't expect him or the practice to sugarcoat things for you. He is a great surgeon and they a great team.

Dr. Belsley is an excellent doctor. He listens and explains very clearly in a way you can understand. His office staff is friendly and professional, appointments are made promptly. I was seen on time for my appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Belsley!

Beware. This practice is very unorganized. Shara, the dietician is condescending obnoxious & unethical. I was coaxed into having a gastric bypass by Dr Belsey instead of the sleeve which is what I originally desired. My bmi was 35. Not really warranted for a bypass. I was told I could not change my mind once I decided. I postponed by surgery & 2 months later tried to rebook it & had lost 6 lbs in the interim from a stomach flu & the Dr told me I proved I could lose the weight myself
