Dr. Naim is an excellent bariatric sergeant, he has done gastric sleeve for both me and my daughter. The results is been phenomenal. I am down to size 34 from 44 within 2 months and the process was very easy and professional. His surgery center is very comfortable.Thanks

Everything was good and everyone was very friendly. I just wish they went into more detail about what to expect over the next 6 months in preparation for the surgery.

My experience was very very good, especially the ability, care and concern of Dr. Naim & Staff during the whole process. The only caution is to be WELL INFORMED. Dr. Naim's staff does an amazing job, giving you plenty of 411 but it is A LOT to take in .. so do your homework. Honestly, I've never been met with such a a concern for the patient, every step of the way.
