Our Weight Loss Doctors

“Weight loss surgery is not a “one size fits all” procedure. I believe that it is my duty to educate patients on the many weight loss surgery options available. With this knowledge, patients can make informed decisions about what weight loss option is best for them.”   - Dr. Ayoola
