Dr. Mithani managed my emergency case of a ruptured colon. She was very professional and yet compassionate and caring toward my family and myself. During post-op visits she was very understanding of the issues I was experiencing. Dr's office team were very empathetic and helpful at all times. My family and I would very highly recommend Dr. Mithani

I went to Dr. Mithani in November 2017 weighing 220lbs.. I chose to do the weight loss surgery gastric sleeve because I didn't want to be diabetic. She gave me tips to lose some weight before the surgery and also recipes from her dietitian in the office. Today I am 85 pounds lighter.. From a size 20 to a size 4.. Dr. Mithani saved my life and her staff is excellent.. I highly recommend her to anyone that is looking to lose weight and get your sexy back.

I first met Dr. Mithani when I needed surgery for a hernia repair, and she was recommended by my doctor. I really liked her, and was very pleased with the results. Two years later, I went back to her for bariatric surgery. She is a great surgeon, and I am very happy with the surgery and my results. I will recommend her to everyone!
