He was very attentive

1 out of 5 stars

He was in and out in about 2 minutes after taking about half an hour to come in. He changed what was going to happen after reading my chart, which should have been read before and communicated with me so I didn't have to drive to the appointment. I didn't get a chance to ask any questions. Now, I may not even be able to get my surgery that he's changing the date on and I'm very upset about it. He should have rescheduled with me until after the ENT appointment I had set up instead of a useless appointment.

Dr. Benbrahim was terrific. He explained the entire process to me and spoke to me during the procedure to explain what was going on.

As previously noted I have a terrible fear of needles and anxiety. He was more than willing to have me wait a week or so to get a prescription for an anti anxiety so I would be more comfortable with the situation. He offered breathing exercises and joked with me. Kind and patient while I calmed down.

I had a great experience from my 1 appt to my surgery. And my post off the staffs , nurse , and surgeon treated with so much care . They made sure if I had any questions before/after surgery. I could have reached out to the office . As a patient that is very important to me . Thank you again to the staff and Dr Aziz.

I'm getting ready to have the Sleeve Bariatric Surgery done on June 27th, 2023. It took me about 6 months to get ready for the surgery, because I had severe sleep apnea without knowing.....Now, "everything " is under control and supervised by the whole team. All the tests are done and I'm clear for my life changing surgery and medical support. THANK YOU to Dr. Aziz Benbrahim and his WHOLE TEAM. THEY'RE ARE JUST WONDERFUL. 👍

Takes time explaining everything. Answers all my concerns.

Explains things thoroughly. Doesn't rush the patient and directs them to other areas for information. Kind, non judgmental and makes you feel comfortable.
