Ratings for Dr. Michael J. Orris
A co-worker referred me to WLIA and spoke so highly of the staff and Dr. Orris that it convinced me to make the initial appointment that same day. The staff was always very professional but also welcoming and friendly. Most have worked with Dr. Orris for many years, are very knowledgeable and it shows that they share his mission. All of my surgical and financial questions were answered thoroughly, without feeling rushed or scripted. As this was my first surgical procedure ever (gastric sleeve), I probably wouldn't have proceeded if I had a hint of doubt. Dr. Orris and his team have changed my life and I wish I had known about WLIA years ago.
Highly recommend! My husband and I chose a consultation with WLIA for lap-band surgery based off the recommendations from other nurses and they were right! From the moment we walked in the door, you could see from all the little touches that this doctor's office was different. About half of the chairs in the lobby were build for larger folks which was a relief for anyone that has had the horrible experience of trying to be comfortable in a chair that is too small. There were pictures of successful clients all over the place, and magazines that included articles and awards about the surgeons. The office staff had told us in advance that our appointment would be about two hours long and so we expected to spend some time there. They showed us into a consultation room and over the next 2 hours we saw a medical assistant who took my husband's medical history and drew blood, spoke with the financial advisor, the dietitian, and the surgeon. It was wonderful to accomplish in one visit what would normally take 4. When we left, my husband felt very comfortable with the staff and the upcoming procedure. Especially once we were notified that the staff travels together to the different offices and so we would work with the same staff members at every appointment. My husband and I are so happy we choose WLIA and would definitely recommend them to others.
Dr. Orris is the most amazing doctor. I had my surgery done in 2007 and have never regretted a day of it. I can not say enough about Dr DeBarros and Dr. Orris and Mike Murphy RD and staff, they are very caring and want you to succeed in your weight loss journey regardless of what surgery you have done there (Lapband, Gastric Bypass, Sleeve). I had the lapband done and I still go in on occasion to follow up or just to show them how well I'm doing. I am treated like family and if I have any questions or concerns they are more than willing to help and go the extra mile for me. I will continue going there and suggest that anyone thinking about weight loss surgery go there and check them out, you will not regret it.
For many years I have tried and failed to lose weight so in desperation I decided to turn to weight loss surgery. After doing some research online I decided that Weight Loss Institute Of Arizona was right for me. I met with Dr. DeBarros and Dr. Orris at my initial consultation. They were both friendly, professional, answered all of my questions, and alleviated any concern I had about the procedure. I was very satisfied with the care that I received and am greatly looking forward to my procedure.
Dr. Orris and his staff have helped me get my life on a new path that will be the only path I walk for the rest of my life. I am getting healthy and will remain healthy with their support. They walk through the weight loss journey with you and continue for years after. I had the sleeve 4 weeks ago and am down 27 pounds!
