I went to see Dr. Arnold after having difficulty keeping food down with my lap band that was placed by another physician 7 years prior. He ordered a swallow study and discovered the lap band had migrated into my esophagus. We planned surgery and removed the lap band and placed a gastric sleeve. He is amaging, his staff, Elena the MA, Jocelyn the MA, Trudy, the Nurse Navigator are amazing as well. Down to earth and kind.
