I had my surgery on 3/11/16, the whole process SAVED MY LIFE!!! I started at 471 pounds on surgery day. Dr. Bobby and staff were very attentive to my pre and post op situations and had it not been for Dr. Bobby, I can truly say I was certain to leave my son without a dad, my mother without a son, and my two brothers without a baby brother. If you are in even the slightest bit of doubt on whether or not to have the surgery, let me convince you. Contact Dr. Bobby’s office and ask for my email. I will set your mind and fears to rest. Today is 3/17/16, I’m already down 22 pounds, not even 1 week out.*

Hi my name is Cecilia Rodriguez, I am 39 years old. I would like to give my testimonial and how it was a miracle that I came to see Dr.Bobby and how he changed my life. Before, my life was very difficult. I constantly struggled with my excess weight. I tried thousands of diets and nothing seemed to work, on the contrary I would actually gain weight. My cardiologist referred me to Dr. Bobby, my consult was on 02/05/15. It was very emotional for me because I knew how much this would help. I waited three months to have my surgery on 05/18/15. From then on I felt stupendous. I began to see results: my back stopped hurting and I was able to walk again without pain. In 3 months I have now lost 76 pounds. I live my life normally now. I am working now after not having been able to for 3 years because of all the excess weight. My self esteem has gone up. I feel pretty. I don’t hide from people anymore and I don’t care if they see me. I dance now, I exercise, I walk 2 hours daily. I use to not be able to stand for even 20 minutes. All I want to say is thank you to all my amazing doctors that helped me with this surgery and may God bless you for helping us change our lives and live normally with these tools we need to be careful of and keep fighting for as to not fall off track. Thank you so much Dr.Bobby and your amazing team. God Bless you I am very thankful.*

Doctor Bobby did a good job on my lap band surgery. I would recommend him to my friends and anyone that might want to have surgery. Dr. Bobby works well with patients and is there it talk to.*

What a thrilling miracle this has been! It has been four and a half months since Dr. Bobby performed my Gastric Sleeve surgery, and I have lost 87% of my excess body weight. I have enjoyed every minute of the experience and have developed a shape I never knew I could have! By following the instructions in the note book given to me, I’ve had great success and watched my body image and my confidence change radically. Dr Bobby was with me all the way, and I’ve never felt better in my life, in every way.*

After thinking about weight loss surgery for years, I finally signed up for Dr. Bobby’s seminar. I felt I received enough detailed and information to start the process. I met with Dr. Bobby and was confident that he was the skilled, compassionate surgeon to perform my vertical sleeve gastrectomy. His staff worked tirelessly with my insurance. They kept me updated as to their progress and patiently answered all my questions. I had my surgery three months ago. I was surprised at how little discomfort I felt in recovery and post surgery. The medical staff took great care of me and within 24 hours I was home. Since the surgery I have felt better and more confident with each passing day. By following Dr. Bobby’s post-op directions, I have lost over 40 pounds and continue to lose weight and inches. Dr. Bobby and his staff have been phenomenal throughout this whole process. I recommend Dr. Bobby without reservation. My only regret is that I didn’t have surgery sooner!*

I could not lose the weight that I put on after a year of inactivity. I had the bariatric sleeve procedure and have lost 70 pounds. I do not crave food or need food to comfort me anymore. I went back to work the following day after being released from the overnight stay in the hospital. I highly recommend Dr. Bobby. *

Dr. Bobby saved my life with the lap-band surgery. About a year after surgery, my to grandsons, ages 11 and 4 came to live with us. I would not have been able to take care of them or live the active lifestyle I am now living. Thank you Dr. Bobby!*

I had my surgery December 23,2014. As of today I have lost 21 pounds, I went from a size 16 to 10 in jeans and from an XL to medium in shirts. I went to see my primary care doctor who did lab work and found I no longer have high cholesterol. This surgery is the best thing that has happened to me and I thank God for Dr. Bobby and his wonderful team for taking really great care of me. God Bless!*

I researched several Doctors for this surgery. After meeting with Dr. Bobby and his staff, I knew I had made the right choice. I drive from Arizona and it is well worth it. I had my surgery at Eisenhower Medical Center, what a great hospital. Everyone was fantastic. I am post-op 3 weeks now and other than feeling a little tired, everything has gone great.*

My experience has been very rewarding. I have not experienced any pain after surgery. It has been a little difficult because I still crave food, but with a few sips of soup I am full. I am excited to see my end results.*

Working with Dr. bobby and staff has been a blessing. In my 27 years of life I have never felt better. My procedure has helped me lose weight. And thanks to this surgery, I now have a lot more energy and my joint pains are gone. I would definitely encourage others to have weight loss surgery.*

When I first came to Dr. Bobby Bhasker-Rao I wore a pant size of 24-25. I started to lose hope of becoming thin. I started to see the dietitian and lost 12 pounds. I then scheduled an appointment with Dr. bobby to get the lap band surgery. In about 3 years I lost 57 pounds. I now wear a size 10 and I am also off all my medications. I love to exercise and I enjoy sports. My experience today with Dr. Bobby has been extraordinary and amazing. His staff is very friendly and informative. I hope to lose another 30-40 pounds.*

I had my surgery on 1/14/12 and I haven’t felt better. Dr. Bobby gave me my life back, I can dance again. I am now planning a wedding with my love. I want to thank you so much for all you have done for me Dr. Bobby.
You’re a life saver.*

This surgery was a last resort for me. I was diabetic, had high blood pressure, and pain everywhere. The day of surgery I was 406 pounds. I knew I needed this for my kids because my health was going down hill. I had the surgery on 12/6/14. Dr. Bobby and his staff have been nothing but courteous, helpful, and very professional. I have followed the guidelines given to me. In the first 6 weeks, I lost 58 pounds. I can feel the weight is gone. I have more energy, I am off my diabetes medication, and I feel like a new person. Thank you Dr. Bobby.*

I have had such success with my bypass surgery. It lowered my blood sugar levels and my blood pressure. I’m 1 week post-op and am already down 25 pounds. I am looking forward to having more pounds come off and a healthy active life to come. It’s hard work but so worth it. Thanks Dr. Bobby*
– Ronald 3/5/15
Dr. Bobby is kind and cares for his patients. I am thankful I had the bypass. I have lost 80 pounds in 4 1/2 months. I feel so much healthier. I got my life back. I am able to ride a bike and play with my grandkids. And, my relationship with the hubby has improved greatly. Best thing I have done for my self in years. Thank you.*
– Fonda 3/5/15
Surgery results were exactly as expected. No pain and no hunger. Although complicated by shingles, my post- surgery experience included only some dehydration difficulty. Weight loss is now over 50 pounds and on track. Insulin dependance is decreasing substantially and may cease altogether. I highly recommend Dr. Bobby and his staff.*
– Ronald 3/5/15
Before I got the surgery I was over weight and very depressed about my weight. I had low self-esteem because of my weight. After I had the surgery I feel like I did a 180 on my life. I feel good about going shopping. I go to the gym, a lot and am motivated to loose weight. I feel better taking pictures now. I don’t see a big fat girl any more. I also feel great that I can sit down and eat like a lady and not like a man. I feel like Dr. Bobby has given me a new life. Thank you.*
– Jazmin 3/26/15

I’ve been fighting obesity for most of my adult life. About six years ago I decided to finally do something that really works and after speaking to several people about weight loss surgery, I started to find a program. In 2007, I took the fist step and called Dr. Bobby’s office. I had a lap band and 5 years later a sleeve. I’ve lost around 95 pounds. I feel wonderful and live a very active life. I have no regrets and wish I had done it earlier!*
– Cindy-Lu 3/5/15
I did a lot of research. I wanted a Doctor who cared. I had my surgery on October 29, 2014 and am down 48 pounds. I do a lot of things and feel so much better about myself. The team at Dr. Bobby’s office is great and I would refer anyone to this office*
