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.

Very informative about procedure to be done

After dealing with a particular issue for over 3 years, Dr. Braverman put aside everything he read and personally asked to hear my story. Because of his empathy, he was able to diagnose my illness and directed me to another specialist. At this time, both doctors will work together to correct the issue and start the healing process. I am very appreciative.

I had made a special request which was for the whole operating room to please be careful with my back and they did. My back did not hurt at all when I woke up. I am so thankful for that. Thank you everybody.

He is vey passionate about his work and patients

Dr. Braverman is a competent doctor who cares about his patients. After my first visit, I felt that he would figure out what was making me so ill. Dr. Braverman did just that, and within 4 months, I had surgery that seems to have made a huge benefit to my quality of life. The process was quick and efficient; and he made me feel cared for, which is a dying quality in doctors. He created a safe, comfortable environment for me to be honest; which I have no doubt affected the quality of my care, in a positive way. Dr. Braverman is an outstanding physician, I believe that he saved my life; and I am forever grateful. I've already referred a friend to him.
