I had the VSG by Dr. Akkary. He and his office are AMAZING! I am so thankful for their kindness, ability to make you feel comfortable, dedication, skills, and their knowledge. I cannot begin to put into words how thankful I am for this surgery. This is a tool that is helping me continue on my journey towards health and wellness. Prior to meeting Dr. Akkary, I was struggling with continuing on my weight loss journey and was feeling very frustrated. As of today, I am 3 weeks out and down 20# from the day of surgery. That is amazing. If you are thinking about Bariatric surgery, I highly recommend Dr. Akkary and his office. They are my heroes because they are helping me get my life back.

If you are looking for a doctor who will listen to you and explain what & why he’s going to do something, you have found him. He has the added benefit of a wonderful bedside manner minus the arrogance found in doctors ( just because they are doctors, you have met a few if you’re reading this I’m sure). In all he’s a wonderful person who if you’re lucky enough to find him, give him a call. You will have an amazing doctor who is there for you without dodging your call’s no matter how silly you think the question or thought may be ( this isn’t a paid ad I promise, you have his cellphone number incase of anything no matter the time. Sorry, but I’ve never been able to reach a doctor 24-7 without going through a answering service and even then how many times do you get to talk to them? Not many from my experience and I’ve seen more doctors than I care to think about.) he’s always able to answer it or calm your pre surgery nerves. He’s great if you’re looking for anything in his specialty and if I could, he’d be my doctor for everything, but he’s only one person so I will settle for his specific fields.

Dr. Akkary gave me my life back. I’m almost 7 months post op. Down 134lbs with 50 more to goal. I love my new me and I can’t wait for my skin revisions. Thank you Dr. Akkary.

This is my story, for most of my adult life I have struggled with my weight. I had severe depression and was taking more then one antidepressant. I had high cholesterol (on medication). I had sleep apnea and used a c-pap machine at night. I had other minor issues as well. In 2006 I started looking into having weight loss surgery. In 2008 I decided to take control of my weight! I went to see Doctor Akkary. Together we concluded that the lap band was the right procedure for me. I have to tell you, it was the best decision I have ever made in my life!! After the first year I had lost over 50 percent of my weight, no longer needed any and i repeat ANY medication. The c-pap machine also a thing of the past.( It’s great to sleep at night without that contraption). By my second year I had reached 100 percent weight loss. Four years later, I am still at 100 percent, and feel better than I have felt in a long time. I started the program weighing over 245lbs, today I maintain a weight of 127 to 133 pounds. Doctor Akkary and his staff have been there every step of the way. If I had any questions or concerns my mind was always put at ease. I got the personal attention I needed to be successful! Having this surgery gave me my life back. I went back to school, have a new rewarding career in the medical field. I can run a 5k, something I used to only be able to watch. I don’t have any trouble keeping up with my two young grandchildren. Best of all I’m healthy and medication free!

I am a physician. After researching and exploring all my options for bariatric surgery, I decided to see Dr. Akkary. Based on his reputation, I even went out of network to have him do my surgery. I can attest that Dr. Akkary is a superb clinician with a great bedside manner as well. I would recommend him to anyone in need of bariatric, or any general surgical procedures. His staff is also excellent.

I’m only 10 weeks post op total of 12 with liquid diet I have came such a long ways I started out at 261 I am now down to 200 Dr Akkary has changed my life no it hasn’t been the easiest Road but this journey is worth the wIld… I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Brings…thank you so much
