Dr Vito Bagnato is a very good surgeon. He helps you understand you are doing this for yourself, not others. He teaches you that you will feel so much better after you lose the weight. This is not some surgery you can just work in his office and say I am here to have the lap band. It has stages you go through, it took me a year about I got everything one at a time. His staff is wonderful, as smiling, and will help you with all of your needs.

I had been to many doctors before finally finding Dr Bagnato. He immediately diagnosed and fixed my reflux. The procedure was easy and I was back to work in just a few days. I am so grateful to him I'm sleeping through the night for the first time in years. He is truly a lifesaver. A Happy Nanny
