My husband and I wanted to change our lives together, so we did the Buddy challenge! He went a month before I had my surgery. Him being a month plus and I only a week are learning day by day with our journey. The staff is Amazing! Coming in the office you are greeted by Ms. Dnessa with a warm welcome.
Then off to his Nurses Nikki and Nicole whom are both super sweet and lifesavers!
The man of the year is Dr Brakta, with his warm bedside manner. We researched Dr. Brakta and learned he has a plethora of experience in this procedure and other medical conditions as well.
My husband and I felt we were in good hands.
Thank you Dr. Brakta and staff for helping with the progression in our weight loss journey!
I have considered weight loss surgery since I have my knee replacement 2 years ago. I found out about Dr Brakta from a friend who had the surgery several months ago. My friend looks great and very healthy from her weight loss surgery. Dr Brakta’s staff has been very professional and supportive through my process to get healthy again. I like that he covers all bases to make your journey to health a success. Thank you to all nurses and support team members I feel I will succeed!
Dr. Brakta and his staff are absolutely the best out there. Dr. Brakta changed my life and I will always recommend him to anyone.
Amazing ! I can’t say it enough how amazing Dr. Brakata and his staff are! So friendly and very fast! I will definitely send family to him for their needs!
We were very impressed by Dr Brakta and his staff. Everyone was friendly and helpful. No one rushed us and they made sure all our questions were answered.
