Bariatric specialists might be from surgical backgrounds and perform obesity-related operations or they might be nutrition and hormone focused, prescribing diet and exercise plans as well as weight loss medications.

In July, I will be celebrating 3 years with my lapband! It has not been the easiest process, and is still something I work hard at every day. With the help of WLIA I was able to say goodbye to diabetes, and live a healthier lifestyle. Thanks Dr. Orris and team.

Highly recommend!

Highly recommend! My husband and I chose a consultation with WLIA for lap-band surgery based off the recommendations from other nurses and they were right! From the moment we walked in the door, you could see from all the little touches that this doctor's office was different. About half of the chairs in the lobby were build for larger folks which was a relief for anyone that has had the horrible experience of trying to be comfortable in a chair that is too small. There were pictures of successful clients all over the place, and magazines that included articles and awards about the surgeons. The office staff had told us in advance that our appointment would be about two hours long and so we expected to spend some time there. They showed us into a consultation room and over the next 2 hours we saw a medical assistant who took my husband's medical history and drew blood, spoke with the financial advisor, the dietitian, and the surgeon. It was wonderful to accomplish in one visit what would normally take 4. When we left, my husband felt very comfortable with the staff and the upcoming procedure. Especially once we were notified that the staff travels together to the different offices and so we would work with the same staff members at every appointment. My husband and I are so happy we choose WLIA and would definitely recommend them to others.

Dr. Orris is the most amazing doctor. I had my surgery done in 2007 and have never regretted a day of it. I can not say enough about Dr DeBarros and Dr. Orris and Mike Murphy RD and staff, they are very caring and want you to succeed in your weight loss journey regardless of what surgery you have done there (Lapband, Gastric Bypass, Sleeve). I had the lapband done and I still go in on occasion to follow up or just to show them how well I'm doing. I am treated like family and if I have any questions or concerns they are more than willing to help and go the extra mile for me. I will continue going there and suggest that anyone thinking about weight loss surgery go there and check them out, you will not regret it.
