Becoming a doctor was always what Dr. Braverman wanted to do. When asked why Dr. Braverman chose Bariatric Surgery as a career he stated, “It provides me with the opportunity to not only help patients lose a significant amount of weight, but to also potentially cure their weight related diseases. Really though, it gives patients a second chance at a healthier life.  Surgical weight loss increases energy, improves appearance and most importantly, dramatically improves the patient’s quality of life. I truly love what I do.” Dr. Braverman enjoys the continuity of care that comes with Bariatric Surgery as he gets to know his patients through their weight loss journey. Having performed over 3,000 bariatric operations with extremely low complication rates and no deaths, he is one of the most experienced and safest weight loss surgeons in California. Dr. Braverman’s hobbies include physical fitness, oil painting, gardening, and playing softball. Most of all, he loves spending time with his wife and young children and enjoys taking advantage of living in sunny, Southern California.

Before my primary doctor/a friend of 30yrs retired. He used Dr. Braverman as a referral for his patients having weight issues, he told me he did this based on what I told him of my experience with Dr. Braverman.

Best Dr ever!
August 02, 2019
I highly recommend Dr.Braverman. From day one when I first met him pre operatively, till the day of surgery, post operatively and now a year later, he still explains everything thoroughly and answers all my questions and or any concerns to the fullest! (Whereas, other doctors seem to rush you in and out of appts.) He truly listens to me as his patient and remembers what we talk about from our previous visits.
July 30, 2019
I've seen Dr. Braverman before, so I trust his knowledge, professionalism and honesty, so I was excited to reunite and continue my health care after 4 years hiatus. Although this was a very brief visit, I was expecting possibly more in depth testing or health updates and coaching for success. It was kept at a basic visit and off I went. Because I was expecting a more thorough exam, it may be that I'm where I need to be for the time being. Everything must have looked successful from Dr. Braverman's view. I will ask & see where I am within the next 6 months!
July 26, 2019
Again. The doctor and staff were very professional, friendly and informative.

Doctor Braverman and his entire staff made my life 100% better through the gastric bypass surgery process. A year later, I have gone from 303 pounds down to 188 and feel healthy and happy. The educational process prior to the surgery, along with scheduled follow up office visits have been key in the success. I am very grateful for the opportunity to regain my health.

Dr. Braverman is extremely informative and knowledgeable on his field of expertise. His "bedside" manner was friendly and informative. He spoke in "layman's" terms to both myself and my husband when explaining the different procedures. The long drive, 1 hour) was definitely worth it!
