“There are no words to describe how incredibly grateful I am to Dr. Devalia, she is honestly the best doctor I’ve ever come across. She is the true definition of patient care. Dr. Devalia did my gallbladder removal surgery and when I woke up, I thought nothing happened. I asked the nurse wether they were able to take out my gallbladder as I felt completely normal, no pain. When the nurse confirmed I was so happy, hours later she asked if I needed pain medication and I didn’t, I recovered very quickly and not a single complication. I am due to have my gastric bypass surgery with Dr. Devalia in the next couple of months and I know that I am completely in safe hands. My surgeon is the best out of the best and I recommend her to everyone. I know everything will go smoothly. At every single appointment, Dr. Devalia always reassures me, she makes sure that she gives me as much information as possible, answers any questions I have and really takes her time to go through everything with you, step by step which is very important. With every single appointment with Dr. Devalia I do not feel like my appointment is rushed, I feel she fully takes her time with her patients, it’s very visible that she takes care of her patients. Dr. Devalia has truly without any exaggeration changed my life, with my upcoming surgery I know my life with change too, for the better. She has given me more life, more health. She is someone I will cherish forever and always keep close to my heart. I hope more people find Dr.Devalia because I know that your experience will be the same. “
