Dr. Steven Fass did an excellent job providing me with a Tool that saved my life. I had Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy on 4/6/2015 and to this date I have lost a total of over 323 Pounds. Dr Fass provided the tool I did the work, that is what really matters, I am really blessed and happy I found him and he was "In Network" The office does provide larger seats for the larger bodied....

Dr. Fass and his staff are by far the best!! I have been seeing him for 5 years now and it's never a dull moment when I am in the room. I love the patient vs doctor relationship we have developed. I trust his advice and decision-making process concerning my health. Anyone looking for a bariatric doctor I highly him and his assistant Jenna. They are a wonderful team.

I had to be admitted into the hospital with a partial obstruction of the small intestine on March 2016 and December 2016. He was excellent and very good at explaining, making the right decisions for my treatment, and cares very much about his patients. If one doesn't understand he is very, very patient and discusses it further making one feel safe and in good hands. He will be my surgeon if I should need him at any time. My sister was also fortunate to have him. Couldn't be happier.
