Dr. Attia is a pleasant, caring, professional physician. I absolutely love him! He takes time and listens to you, encourages you, if needed he scolds you...gently..but he genuinely wants the best for you. He has operated on me twice, once the gastric sleeve and then hernia repair. In both instances he was very attentive and concerned about my concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Attia if you are in search of a general or bariatric surgeon.
