After doing a year’s worth of research on the various options for weight loss surgery, I decided that the lap Band system offered the most flexible solution. I met with Dr. Mehta and he immediately put me at ease. He understood my concerns with all of the options, and agreed that in my circumstances the lap band was right for me. Dr. Mehta and all of his staff were instrumental in helping me through all of the processes involved with getting medical and psychological clearances for the surgery and insurance company authorized. After my surgery Dr. Mehta and all of his staff continue to be helpful, supportive and encouraging. I cannot emphasize enough how happy I am with my surgery, Dr. Mehta and his staff. 17 months after surgery and I have lost 105 lbs so far, and continue to lose. My sleep apnea has been resolved and I have more energy than I have had in years.
