I had Baricict surgery by DrSingh in September 2017. I had nothing but problems. He or his staff will not help me.. He and his PA tells me to go to my primary care for follow up. Having trouble swallowing anything and also dihydration. Call the office and they don’t return calls. Now my primary is stepping in and helping me with this problem and trying to find me a new Baricict doctor but is having hard time because of who did the surgery. Do not go to this group..,

Go to this guy if you feel like having your post-operative pain ignored and then having emergency surgery performed 7 months later to fix his surgery.

Dr Singh did a decent job with my surgery. I'm giving him a low rating because he is terrible about communicating expectations after surgery. One shouldn't have to see a different surgeon to get the expectations of how healing will go over the course of time. The information he provided was limited and in some cases inaccurate.
