Unbelievable care. We don't always hear what we want to hear, but being well informed and treated with "Empathy" is priceless.

I can’t stop raving about Dr. Benbrahim and his team. I’m a couple days post op from gastric sleeve surgery and I can say with upmost appreciation how happy I am to have been connected to him for my bariatric surgery. From the beginning of the whole process I have felt validated, respected and most importantly cared for all around. I had some issues I had to resolve with my relationship with food and his whole team were with me every step of the way. I am so happy and with minimum pain as well post op. I couldn’t even believe he had operated on me once I woke up. The incisions are healing very nicely and since I don’t accept blood products, being a Jehovah’s Witness, he was very understanding and comforted me in letting me know he had worked on many JWs throughout the years. He has passion for what he does and his eyes sparkle when he talks about how much he loves to help people have a better way of life. Dr. Benbrahim is an honest and true doctor and makes me have faith in medical professionals once again. Thank you for all you do, you have shown me my future and it’s sparkling with how bright I see it.
