I had the gastric lap band in 2010 and the gastric sleeve in 2014. I completely trust Dr. Paya and would never go to anyone else. He is the Best JHughes

BEST SURGEON IN THE WORLD..... YES I AM BIASED

I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Paya, and his staff. Especially Denny. I had my surgery, just about 18 months ago, gastric sleeve and went from a size 30 to a size 28, and plan to lose about 70 more pounds. I leave his cards where ever we go, on cruises. to the movies. I thin he has gotten 2 or 3 people from me doing this. My brother and sister-in-law (who happens to be a nurse a Northridge hospital} told me that Dr. Paya is one of the most highly regarded doctors in the valley. I had gone to another doctor, but through him you had to put together your own package i.e. him as you surgeon, then through the hospital )St. Joes) your had to find the doctor who put you under{come on people, please..... if I am paying cash I feel it should be down for me). Through Dr. Paya, it is all down for you. The doctor who puts you under has a wonderful sense of humor. I looked at the operating table, which was small in my estimation and I looked at him and said *I do not think my big butt will fit. He patted my back and laughed and said * honey, there have been much bigger butts than yours on this table, do not worry, we will take great care of you. AND THEY DID. FROM START TO FINISH., SO IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A DOCTOR AND STAFF THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL SPECIAL, AND MORE IMPORTANT GIVE YOU THE BEST MEDICAL CARE IN THE WORLD DR. PAYA IS YOUR MAN.

Beware!

Two and a half years ago I had a revision of a lap band to a sleeve previously performed by Dr. Paya. I was told he was going to remove the slipped lap band and do a sleeve. Within the year I kept visiting him and mentioning I feel like there is something in my abdomen and he said no it nothing and never checked. Exactly a year later I ended up at the emergency room with a lower right side pain in my pelvic area. After an x-Ray and C-T scan they realized a foreign object " the tubing " of the band was left behind! It had dug into my appendix now removed and given pressure to my bladder. I wore a catheter for 3 weeks at risk it may have been longer if I couldn't urinate on my own. To make my story short after all this a second opinion told me my sleeve was also done incompletely! I had it redone by another doctor. I have reported Dr. Paya and he is under investigation but everyone I warn you go get checked out before you end up like me.
