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.

It was a really good call. The doctor was well prepared when he got on the call, he knew all of my labs and referenced some of the observations of other doctors in the system. He advised me about a vitamin deficiency that he found in my labs. He listened to my issues and offered recommendations. I felt much better after talking to him. I also felt that he and his team are always available if I need their assistance.

I think Dr Braverman is a great Dr. I would not have wanted any other Dr to do my Bariatric surgery. From the moment I first stepped into his office Dr and staff were extremely kind and helpful. Dr explained in great detail how the surgery worked and what to expect. I am very glad I had done. I am the most healthiest I have been in the last fifteen years!
