I had a gastric sleeve with Dr. Burpee. He is a great surgeon! I had no issues whatsoever. Dr. Burpee was always very kind and professional and always willing to answer my questions. His staff is just as amazing. I recommend Dr. Burpee to anyone and everyone.

Dr. Burpee did my gastric sleeve way back in Jan. 2005 . I had it laparoscopic. You can't see any incision spots. I lost almost 100 pounds. I have kepted it off . Dr. Burpee also did my husbands gastric bypass. We both really like and trust Dr. Burpee as a surgeon.

April 2014, Bariatric Bypass surgery. Lost 80 lbs in 8 months and kept it off for two years. His NP Nurse, Debbie Belcher, is outstanding in everything she does and helps the patient to understand instructions. Everyone in his office staff is professional and courteous. This decision to have Dr Burpie do my surgery was the best decision of my life.
