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.

I liked that Dr. Braverman sat on his stool and looked straight at me when he talked. Great communication skills, he speaks and he listens. He fit me in on an emergency basis due to a possible band slippage from placement in 2007!! He is the only Doctor I have let touch my lap band since it was placed. Even the needle stick in my abdomen was painless.

The office visit was perfect. The parking lot situation at PIH and the auxiliary building like Putman has turned into a nightmare. No place to park and long lines trying to exit because you don't have someone manning the exit gates. People pull up (especially the elderly and/or non English speaking people) and they can't figure out how to pay the parking fee. Numerous times, myself and others, have had to get out and go help these poor people who can't figure the thing out. I don't mind paying but you need to make getting the ticket paid and the exit gate easier for people.

I think the nurse's assistant should be a little bit nicer and a little bit more patient. And I felt like I was rushed.

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.
