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.

Yes, Dr. Braverman, just wanted to say thank you for always treating me like a person, and not like a person who's overweight there to help me. There is not ridicule me, just give me options. And also [name removed], and all of the nursing staff. They were very professional. Any time I leave a message, they've got back to me in a timely manner. I am trusting them on the 18th with my bariatric surgery. And I used to be very nervous, but now, I am not. I feel completely like I'm in good hands, and that's due to their professionalism, and their devotion to their craft. So, I appreciate them. And absolutely, I definitely recommend them for anyone in their future. That's dealing with what I'm dealing with.
