Wonderful Experience!

I had my sleeve done in 2011 and had a great experience with Dr. Boorse. He listened to me and never made me feel rushed. His warm and confident personality helped me feel so much better about having such a life changing surgery. Highly recommend him!

Fantastic

Dr. Boorse exceeds his already excellent reputation. He's the first doctor that actually had a real conversation with me about my care plan.

Very poor follow up after surgery

I had complications (infection) after surgery & Dr. Boorse didn't even have the courtesy to follow up with me personally at my appts. I ended up seeing his partner with my problems more than my own primary caregiver.
