Dr. Feiz & Associates
I cannot say enough about Dr. Feiz. Awesome guy. Awesome surgeon. Awesome nurse (Lupe). Bet decision I ever made was to have him do this surgery. I'm one year post-op and have lost 80 lbs. I've gone from a size 28 to a size 8 and I feel like a completely new woman! I really lucked out when I found Dr. Feiz. Thank you for giving me a new lease on life Doc.
I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. I had a lap-band back in 2008, from a horrible doctor. I felt the band never worked properly and I experienced long-term severe side effects. That??s when I found Dr. Feiz. I had him remove my band in the spring of 2011 after careful consultation. Dr. Feiz had discovered that my port had turned over and that??s why I was having such problems. The care I received from him, the surgery center, and his staff was absolutely wonderful. They all go above and beyond to help their patients. Since the band was removed my weight has gone up and back down. I contacted Dr. Feiz to see what my other options were. He suggested the Gastric Sleeve. I was debating about another surgery given the unpleasant experiences from the first, but I know under Dr. Feiz??s care I have nothing to worry about. I will be sleeved later this month, and I look forward to sharing my results. I??ve seen a lot of doctors in the past couple years and Dr. Feiz and his associates are in a league all of their own, I wouldn??t go anywhere else.
I had the Lap Band surgery about 2 years ago and realized that I was not getting the results I wanted. My problem was, that I wouldn't listen to the "band" when I was full and would keep eating and causing me to throw up. After talking to Dr. Feiz he informed me about the Sleeve Gastrectomy and how it can be a better solution for me! The Band works but the Sleeve turned out to be a better solution for me. No post ops, like the band and I know when to eat and not to eat and don't have problems throwing up. I had the sleeve surgery about 2 months ago and i'm already down 40 pounds!! Thank you Dr. Feiz for everything!! I can't wait to get into a bikini this summer for the first time after years! Thank you to Dr. Feiz's staff for being with me from the beginning to end and still supporting me on my journey to reach my ideal weight! I recommend everyone and anyone to Dr. Feiz he is unbelievable! Plus unlike many other doctors, he always gives you his cell phone and is always there and ready to talk, help and give advice!!
I am so lucky to have found Dr. Michael Feiz! From the first day I attended one of his seminars to the date of surgery Dr. Feiz and his staff was right by my side. They arranged all needed appointments with a dietician, psychologist, handled everything with my insurance and set me up with a surgery date in no time. Dr. Feiz is very personable and has always been available when I've needed him. I have struggled with my weight for years, two months into the surgery, I have already gone down 2 waist sizes and looking to lose even more. Dr. Feiz's staff is always available to answer any questions and have been very supportive through it all. Now as a post-op patient, I have all the tools necessary thanks to Dr. Feiz to continue on my life changing experience. From his blog, facebook page of daily tips and tricks (https://www.facebook.com/DoctorLapBand?sk=info) and after care, I know I will ascertain my goal within the next 6 months! Thank you Dr. Feiz for changing my life!! You are simply AMAZING!! I would recommend everyone to Dr. Feiz!!
My wife has had major complications following her gastric sleeve surgery and we have not heard from Dr. Feiz in almost 2 months. We had to go see another surgeon to get proper care.

! I searched for months to find the right doctor for my lap band surgery. Since I was self pay I wanted to make sure that I got the best. And I DID! Along with the grand amount of knowledge and passion for what he does, DR. FEIZ is truly a doctor that puts his patients first. Before and after the surgery, he was always there to address any of my questions or concerns, and I had a lot of them! Dr Feiz called me a day before the surgery just for a prep talk and to make sure I was ready, he was amazing and knew just what I needed.
On the day of my first fill, which approximately takes about 5 minutes, it took me about a half hour! I usually get light headed and nauseous with anything that has to do with needles. Dr Feiz held my hand and helped me get through it. It was embarrassing for me, but he continued to assure me that he will stay as long as it takes for me to feel better and to continue with my fill. On another occasion, my first stuck episode, I called Dr Feiz at 9pm, and guess who answered on the other side ?yes Dr. Feiz! He was very comforting and explained exactly what I needed to do. Other than his excellent bedside manners, may I add that my scars are so unnoticeable, the smaller ones are as big as a rice grain and the bigger scar is in my belly button hood (which barely shows), I personally think my belly button looks better than it did before the surgery! I am so grateful for all the time I spent searching for the right doctor and all my effort paid off. Thanks Dr Feiz!!
Dr. Feiz is a wonderful doctor who truly cares about his patients. He and his staff made my experience extremely seamless. Lupe worked with me through insurance verifications and followed through with my insurance to make sure all of my documentation was in order. Dr. Feiz was always available to answer all of my questions ?? and even provided his cell phone and email which I did use on more than one occasion! My surgery was in April 2010 and everything went smoothly and free of complications. My scars are tiny and are fading fast at only 4 months post surgery. I researched several different doctors and I would definitely recommend Dr. Feiz as a doctor who not only cares about his patients and is skilled in the field of bariatric surgery, but who also has excellent bedside manner and works to accommodate his patients. If you are even considering Lap-Band or Bariatric surgery, so see Dr. Feiz!

After checking around for many Dr. I met Dr. Feiz in one of his offices for a consoltation, and with in moments I said this is my Dr.. He said something that most Dr. are afraid to say, the "truth". He said what has to be done & how it works with lots of care. He answered all my questions and said it like it is. He told me that this is not majic, that i still have to work at it & he was right. On the week before surgery he called and checked on me if i was ready and had any other questions, then came surgery day. He told me what to expect after and just like he said, he was right. He told me what to do and how to care for my after care and it was very smooth. When i saw his work on my body, he was an artist. Honest. 6 months later, I have 2 hairline scars that look like skin marks, and nothing else. Even my kids were amazed. What realy was amazing that Dr. Feiz even saw me on a Sunday at his office, 2 weeks later when i had a redness on my stomach, that was not surgery related. He just wanted to make sure i had no infection. He left his family and saw me for a few minutes and he was happy it was nothing. But that makes the difference, when you care of your clients. I really have no words. I know of a few people who did another surgery with other Dr., and they were shocked at the outcome. Not as nice and clean surgery and not the same bed side manners. I can go on & on, but really Dr. Michael Faze will always be a friend and i can not see why people would even talk to another Dr. Also congrats to his office staff. I have lost over 60lbs in 6 months, and going strong. I know thanks to Dr. Feiz, I will live longer and enjoy my wife & 4 kids for many more years. Thanks Dr. Feiz.....Nir
Oh! My Goodness, I am so very blessed to be a patient of Dr Feiz. His entire office is simplying amazing. I particularly impressed with Larry you should definitely be a doctor because he has excellent beside manners. Dr Feiz and his staff takes exceptional care of their patients and ensure that the patient is aware of the entire procedure and the aftercare is exceptional as well. I know God had his hand on me when I met Dr Feiz. My surgery was performed on August 5, 2009 and was very successful. Many thanks to Dr Feiz, Larry, Lupe, and all of the other staff. I love you guys!!!!!
Dr. Feiz is the most amazing doctor! Not only is he kind and he has a great bedside manner, he is brilliant and determined to be your doctor for life. He has been there for me through the hard times and easy times in terms of weight loss struggles and I have gone from a size 16 to a size 4/6! I cannot recommend him enough!!!
FYI - I hit the "No" button under "Recommended" erroneously, thinking it would give me more info on who said No and why. It should not be so easy to do that. I don't know this doctor yet, but I will give five stars because its the least I can do to correct this. If I go to this doctor, I will update with the results if can again here.

Dr. Feiz was absolutely amazing! He didn't just tell me what to do or what not to do, he gave me reasons for everything. I was not kept in the dark about anything! He is an encouraging, supportive, positive person that treats me like a person, a friend, not just a patient. I know that whenever I need something, I can call or email him and he will get back to me same day or the next day. I was completely satisfied with my experience and continue to be satisfied with followups. I recommend him to anyone that I speak with and if I had to do it over again, wouldn't have changed a thing. Dr. Feiz is nothing short of the best.
I researched a lot a doctors before I decide to use Dr. Feiz. I did not find another doctor that could help me understand and make me feel so good about the surgery I was about to have. I was very happy I made the decision to become one of Dr. Feiz's patients. Beside being what I consider one of the best surgeon in his field, he has been great to deal with on all of my post op adjustments. He is always avaliable and very helpful. How many doctors actually give their personnal email and actually reply to you promply? Dr. Fiez does! I truly believe he cares about his patients. I do and would recommend him to anyone. He is an exellent doctor.

Dr. Michael Feiz is an amazing doctor. My original consultation with him was over 1 year ago. I had some anxiety going into the consultation but my mind was immediately put at ease once we started discussing weight loss options. I opted for the Gastric bypass surgery. I had my surgery one month ago and Dr. Feiz was with me every step of the way, from insurance approval to post-op. He is always available to his patients for any questions and has always said that he is your doctor for life. I've never met a Dr. with such compassion for his patients and passion for what he does. I am truly thankful for having such a wonderful surgeon.

Dr. Feiz is the best doctor I have ever met. He is very pleasant and approachable. He explained the Lap-Band procedure and worked diligently for my Insurance approval and surgery date. He stayed in contact with me on a daily basis and has always been reachable on the phone to answer my questions. Dr. Feiz preformed my Lap-Band surgery 04/18/2007 and so far I have lost 108LBS. I recommend him to anyone who is seriously considering weight loss surgery.
