i have been going to WLIA for overa yr and finally had lap band surgery.. staff and dr orris have been very helpful and patient with me. they are always ready to answer any questions about procedures and outcome ,. good work
I had a terrible experience a year ago at a different weight loss center. I am so happy to report how thrilled I am with WLIA and Dr. Orris! My first visit, I was treated with friendliness and respect. All of my questions were answered. Dr. Orris showed patience during our meeting. I feel like WLIA has a whole team to help me get through not only the surgery but in my plan to change my whole life patterns for an ongoing health and happy future. The staff here is excellent.
I had my original consultation with Dr. Orris for my lapband. He took all the time we needed until I felt comfortable in my understanding of the procedure. He answered all my questions so they were easy to understand. Overall I felt comfortable in he hand of WLIAZ and Dr. Orris
I have been working with Dr Orris since July 2014. It's now March 2015. My insurance required I do 6 months of nutritional counseling prior to my band surgery. I saw Dr Orris every month when I came in to meet with the nutritionist. Dr Orris is very thorough and always discussed how I was doing and gave details on my upcoming procedure. I had a hiatal hernia repair in November. Dr Orris was great at explaining the procedure and the after care. As I got closer to my band, Dr Orris made sure that they had everything they needed to submit my case and have a higher chance of getting an approval from the insurance. The insurance approved and I had my band surgery on Feb 12th. So far my experience has been great. I would highly recommend Dr Orris and Weight Loss Institute of Arizona.
I started my journey for weight loss surgery in September '14. I was so nervous and unsure of what to expect. Dr. Orris was so helpful and continues to be supportive and easy to talk to. He helped ease my anxiety along with the rest of his staff. I enjoy going in to see them and know that my questions will be answered. I feel very secure in knowing that he will be performing my weight loss surgery. I would recommend that if you are looking to get weight loss surgery that you go with Dr. Orris.
I love this place and Dr. Orris is great! After a friend had surgery through another company that was just horrible to her, she started going to WLIA instead and the difference was like night and day. Dr. Orris and his staff has given her more success and a support system that wasn't available elsewhere. Because of her reviews, I will always pick WLIA! The group meetings are friendly and you feel welcome every time you attend. Michael Murphy is the best Nutritionist you could ask for. Everyone on the staff have been friendly and helpful. I only give a three for punctuality because they are always busy but that is a good thing, it means they are well liked.
I had a coworker that went to The Weight Loss Institute of Arizona (WLIA) and had told me great things. I called and got an appointment right away to get in and discuss my options. I spoke to the dietician and to Dr. DeBarros (informative, straight to the point and funny!) and decided that the lap band was right for me. I switched to Dr. Orris (Insurance reasons) He has been AMAZING through my journey. Dr. Orris and his team have walked me through the entire process. From my PreOp Diet, to the day of surgery, and to the present - 2 years later and 90 pounds down! I have nothing negative to say about WLIA and their team. Do yourself a favor and give them a call. They can help with any questions you have. Remember it is a process, its not overnight weight loss. We are here to get healthy and active. Make sure you go to a support group when you need extra motivation!
I started my journey in Dec 2014 and have found Dr. Orris and his staff to be nothing but helpful to me. I am very encouraged with all they have told me and helped me with so far and look forward to my future.
