I chose WLIA due to the excellence of Dr. Orris' staff. Very helpful, keep you on track. Dr. Orris answers your questions and Mike the nutritionist is the best. I am post op 2 months and have lost 32 pounds towards my personal goal of total loss of 110 pounds. I would refer WLIA to anyone who asked.
Dr. Orris at the Weight Loss Institute of AZ has been available to answer my questions and help me understand the details of the lap band procedure. The location in Glendale is convenient and the office staff always try to assist as needed. During follow up visits he is attentive and helpful
I was very impressed with the support I received at WILA. Everyone was very friendly and always had a response for all my questions. The medical staff was amazing to work with as they made me feel comfortable with all my procedures. I highly recommend WILA.
I had the gastric sleeve on 7/31/15 with Dr. Orris. Prior to leaving the surgical center in Tempe, I was provided instructions on how to use the blood pressure cuff, heart rate monitor, and the ear temp device. I was informed what to look for and if any of the changes happened that I needed to contact the oncall. The night of my surgery I started to vomit small amounts of blood, I couldn't keep any of the ice chips down. I checked my temp and it spiked up to 102, blood pressure dropped, and heart rate spiked. I contacted the oncall number and within a few minutes the oncall DR called me back. I was informed I needed to go to Tempe St Lukes right away and Dr. G (oncall) would coordinate care to get me admitted. I went to the hospital, they told me they were expecting me and took me back within 15 minutes. I had a scan confirming that Dr. O did an excellent job - I did not have a leak even though I had vomited several times. Dr. G came to the hospital and met with me. He was able to rx me a medication that actually stopped the vomiting. So, after a two night stay in the hospital I was able to go home and finish recovering. The MD at the hospital coordinated my discharge with Dr. G and told me to follow up with Dr. O at my scheduled appt. Dr. O and Dr. G were so awesome. I highly recommend them, as if you are one of the rare patients that ends up having complications - they will coordinate with other medical professionals to get you the care that is needed. I felt cared for during this entire process. I highly recommend WLIA!
Just as an FYI, I'm down 45 lbs and I've contacted Mike/Kate (nutrition) and they have always answered my questions. They were very helpful pre and post op.
Office staff were amazing to work with as well. I had Tricare and I was nervous about them covering my surgery. They submitted the paperwork and I was approved on the first try. How awesome is that! I couldn't be happier with the service that I was given with WLIA

I have known Dr. Orris for over a year now, and am very pleased with his practice. He is very laid back and helps explain things to patients. He performed my lapband surgery in 2014, and has been very supportive throughout the whole experience.
I have been a patient of Dr. Orris for almost 2 years now. He and his staff are some of the most caring and nicest people around. They accommodate me with my appointments and their care program helped me afford the surgery. I am please with my results and wish I would have done this sooner. Thank you WLIAZ - Norma
I'm really glad I chose to go with WLIA for my weight loss surgery. Dr. Orris and his team have helped me through every step of the way, even when I started freaking out over cost they have been able to help me figure out ways to make my surgery work for me. The whole process has been relatively stress-free, thanks to the staff there. The dietitian I see there, Mike Murphy, is awesome as well, and very supportive but never coddles you! I don't think I would have made it this far without his help! I woe a huge thanks to the whole team there! -Jill R.
