Dr. Jawad did my Lapband almost two years ago. I have been successful losing weight and have lost over 80 lbs. Unfortunately for me my lapband slipped, which unfortunately does happen. Now I will have to have another surgery to get the sleeve done, but Dr. Jawad has been so supportive and caring through the whole process. He has made time to talk to me and my husband to explain what is and will be happening. He has readjusted his schedule to take care of me more than one time. After being a doctor for as many years as he has not lost his sensitivity to his patients. I find that absolutely not usual in the medical profession. Someone with his reputation to have the sensitivity to his patients that he has makes him one of the best doctors I have ever had the privilege of being a patient. I would recommend Dr Jawad to anyone since he always takes the patients best interest first, and I find that refreshing in the medical profession. His staff is wonderful and also caring and very efficient but that is the staff in Ocala that I have dealt will Cheri and Milly are the best! Thank you Dr. Jawad for being a person as well as a talented Doctor! Jan

I am a patient of Dr. Jawad. He did a lap band on me years ago and it never worked. I can not blame that on him as most lap bands have been found to work anyway. But after many years I go back and try to get a revision to a sleeve. While Dr. Jawad saw me and the course of action was agreed to I was then turned over to a very very bad back office with little skills. I was told that I was approved by insurance to then be told that I was not approved as they submitted the wrong request, then I was told that I could pay cash but then again told that it will be much more since I was having a revision done. The problem as a whole is that Dr. Jawad as experienced as he is is now an employee of Orlando Regional Center and his office is in Ocala. It seems that this group is at the end of its cycle. Even trying to get a hold of them is hard to do. Odalys Verdejo who does insurance is arrogant and non helpful. There are just too many great groups out there now instead of this place.
