What Patients Say About Me

I just want to thank Dr. Amr and his entire staff for changing my life tremendously. The Gastric Sleeve surgery was the best choice I could have ever made for myself and the best thing that has ever happened to me. Before the surgery I had major health problems including stroke, seizures, migraines, vitamin deficiency, sleep apnea, high cholesterol, borderline diabetes, and taking about 20 -25 pills a day for all of my ailments. It has been 6 months since my surgery and I no longer have the symptoms / health problems above and only take vitamins! I have gone from a size 18 to a size 6 and living a much happier and energetic life everyday it keeps getting better! If you’re considering the surgery, Dr. Amr is definitely the surgeon you want performing it. My surgery was a complete success without any complications. I cannot thank Dr. Amr and his entire staff enough everyday for saving my life.
Anonymous, Weight Loss Surgery Patient.
I just wanted to write this note to thank you and your staff for helping me make one of the most important decision in my life. It has been one year since I have had my Gastric Sleeve procedure and I have to say that it was the best decision that I have ever made outside of marring my wife. I have lost over 150lbs and this is in no way my stopping point. So once again Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!! You basically helped save my life and gave me back my family!!!
