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!

Dr. Mithani is always friendly but professional. She listens to your concerns and makes decisions that are right for you. She remembers you and your issues. The staff always greets you in a friendly manner too. I liked her so well that my wife went to her for surgery.

Submitted my referral for Dr. Mithani through my gastroenterologist and her office didn't call me until 1 1/2 month later to schedule an appointment. (Should have been a sign). Her staff were very friendly, however, needs diversity. Dr. made me feel like i was just another pay check for her. Visited twice and I spent 45 minutes in the waiting room and 3 min. with the dr the first visit and maybe 2 minute the 2nd time. Been 2 1/2 weeks and still having pains. Will have to go see another Dr.

Dr. Mithani's concern and attitude towards my health was very sincere and comforting. I'm a 29 year old female and I had to have my gallbladder removed and she was very informative about the procedure and answered all my questions. The surgery was scheduled fairly quickly and the day of the surgery went very well. Post appointment went well also. Overall an awesome person and surgeon!
