I had gastric bypass and Dr Oakley was my Dr in 2008. In 2017 three of my staples came undone from my gastric bypass and I have had severe troubles since. I do NOT recommend this place to have ur weight loss surgery done.

If you listen to Dr. Oakley and do what you're suppose to do, you can lose weight and keep it off. I'm well over 10 years out, and I lost over 130 lbs. I have maintained my weight successfully with this surgery by following his instructions. Dr. Oakley is a terrific doctor.
