We love celebrating our patients’ successes!

“I started looking for a surgeon that was in my network and Dr. Vafa Shayani was one of my choices. I knew from talking to him once that he was the best choice for me. He explained the different surgeries I could choose and what would be most fitting for me. He was able to answer all my questions and made me feel at ease by his amazing bedside manner. I chose to have the gastric sleeve and had surgery on September 6, 2018. He was there each part of the way. I didn’t do well coming out of the anesthesia, it made me very nauseous. He waited in the recovery room to make sure I was okay. He called that evening to check to see how I was doing and stopped in the next morning to see how I was doing. He continued to check on me even after I went home. He truly cares about his patients and wants to ensure they are doing well…(My)Highest weight was 245 and current weight is 145. It makes me feel really good that I have accomplished what I have, and my success is due to having the right surgeon!”


“The procedure changed my life and can’t thank the staff and Doctor enough. I would tell anyone to go see Dr. Shayani. He is a great guy and a really good Doctor and staff they really care about the patient. I had a great experience with them!!!!!”


Dr. Shayani, Tina and all the staff (are) OUTSTANDING!! They care more than you will ever know…. There are no words that can express for how wonderful this entire team is, so thankful I found them and so thankful for how they have helped me change my life.


In a letter to Dr. Shayani: “I have to say that your bedside manner is second to none and should be an example for all doctors. The week after surgery you checked in with me and made sure everything was going well. I know I was not your only patient you were caring for, but you took the time and (I) was never rushed. One year after surgery and having lost 100 pounds, I feel like I have a new life.”


“I am writing to thank Dr. Vafa Shayani and his entire Bariatric Team for the excellent care I’ve received over the past two years on my journey to a healthy lifestyle and a new me. Every time I needed advice, or a tightening of my band, I was always able to get in immediately. When I had an insurance issue, Dr. Shayani called me and stated ‘don’t worry, it will be taken care of,’ and it was. I cannot say enough about this wonderful team. I highly recommend Dr. Shayani if you are ready to take the step into a healthy you.”
