What They Say

"Dr. Davis is the best surgeon I have ever had the privilege to meet. His bedside manner and down to earth demeanor make him easy to understand and work with. I had robotic surgery with Dr.Davis. He and his staff were so knowledgeable they prepared me for every aspect of recovery. Pain was minimal and recovery time was quicker than expected."

"My primary care physician recommended weight loss surgery due to my uncontrolled diabetes and hypertension. When I tell you I was so nervous about the whole thing, but Dr. Patrick and his staff made me feel comfortable and at ease about the entire process. I was thoroughly educated about the process and how everything works. Best decision I ever made! The best surgeon was picked as well. Very professional and really good at what he does!"

"I LOVE not only Dr Davis, but his staff too! They are fabulous! Especially Evelyn, she is awesome! Her ever present smile makes each visit so much brighter.
Dr Davis is so encouraging and supportive. He made this whole process much easier, with the kindness he showed. If I could give him 10 stars, I would!"

"Very professional and friendly .Very happy with the procedure and Dr. Davis is professional and friendly. Office staff as well. Would definitely recommend Dr. Davis to any one needing surgery."

“One of the things that drew me towards doing a fellowship in minimally invasive and bariatric surgery was the potential to embrace new technologies as they come out. In my fellowship, I did a lot of advanced laparoscopy, which in turn brings with it a lot of decreased postoperative pain, faster recoveries, and quicker return to normal activities. It also allowed me to venture into the field of robotics. We’re now able to perform a lot of surgeries robotically that laparoscopically were quite a challenge.”
