What Our Patients Are Saying
"Dr. Johnell is very professional in every way. My first experience at the office was very good. All the staff were polite and up-beat which makes all their patients feel good.
"The initial process of all the testing was over whelming but in the end I felt well taken care of. I had to do six months of supervised weight loss with Gina and Steve. This was a big key in getting me prepared for the life change I was going through. Both Gina and Steve helped direct me in getting ready for this change and both were very helpful. I thank both of them.
"The after care program is very good. The support group they have has given me a good avenue to ask questions and listen to other people’s experience. Thanks to the staff and Doctor Johnell." Sally W.
"I can't speak highly enough of Dr. Johnell and his staff. His bariatric program offers amazing pre-and post surgery support and follow up. I'm so glad I did my research and found Dr. Johnell. His practice is totally evidence based and very cautious. I feel safe with his staff and confident that I will lose 100 percent of my excess weight, as most of his patients do.
"I think Dr. Johnell is a wonderful doctor. He made me feel very comfortable at my first appointment with him. I have heard nothing but good comments about him in the surgery room. Everyone in his office is very helpful and understanding." Angela Z.
"The [Bariatric Surgery] clinic has been most helpful for all my needs.
"For me, the clinic has helped me in many different ways including emotional, and physically with weight loss. They care about how I am doing as a person, not just as a statistic. The after care has been SUPER! The free and informative after-care classes, were not just information but practical applications for my changing body. The support group has been my life line. It is such a good source of ideas, sharing concerns and to have the other patients or the dietitian say, “I've been through that before, try this solution.”
"In the support group, we have exchanged clothing and menu ideas, also life helps,. The clinic is not just an office, it is real people who really care about me. I am very happy for this new beginning!" Renee' M.
