5.0 ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Amazing

I had my gastric bypass surgery done last March 31st by Dr. Buchholz from Advanced Surgical and Bariatrics at RWJ Barnabas of New Brunswick. The whole experience from the first appointment to the post-ops were amazing. They made me feel heard and guided me throughout the entire process. The team at RWJ Barnabas was also great. I ended up staying two nights at the hospital and everyone of their team took really good care of me. I feel great and my life has changed completely. The new me is healthier and happier. Thank you Advanced Surgical and Bariatrics for the amazing job you do.
