Dr Orris did my Gastric Sleeve surgery Nov. 13, 2015. I have been well pleased with his work. My incisions look great. He made sure I was well prepared at home with the right pain and nausea meds for when I left the hospital. the week after surgery his team was very willing to answer all of my questions. (and I called a lot :) ) I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting this type of surgery.

I am a new patient with WLIAZ. I have had 3 separate appointments with them in preparation for the VSG and have to say they seem to treat me well. I had a little bit of a hard time getting ahold of them for some questions but once i got ahold of them they were very friendly. Dr. Orris is going to be the one to do the procedure for me and after meeting with him he seems to be very nice and informal. Answering any and all my questions the best he could to make me understand everything. At this time i have to say I'm pleased with all my services so far and hoping it continues throughout my whole journey.

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 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
