5 out of 5 stars Sleeve Gastrectomy

Worth It ! - Houston, TX

After years of dieting, exercise and failure I decided to have the procedure. Dr. Bonnor was referred by my primary physician and I am glad I had the procedure.

Once the Doctor found out I was lacking and...

42 Years Old, 2 Kids, and Sick of the Yo-yo! - Katy, TX

Here we go, I'm going to say it out loud, on a social media...I am 5'2" and 227lbs. I am scheduled to have my procedure next month. I'm actually having a revision done, from the lap band to the sleeve. I had the lap band done in 2009 and wish I knew then what I know now. If I did, I would have NEVER done the lap band. It's been awful. So many complications with it. The thing about the...

She took care of everything for us. We drove 2 hours & it was definitely worth it. They let us do everything together right down to the surgery. Dr. Bonner & his staff are very professional & exceeded our...

EXCELLENT SERVICE! I LOVE MY NEW FACE! DR. Bonnor did a great job and I will be coming back for more injections. No pain and he was very gentle with an excellent bedside manner. He also did my weight loss surgery 2 years ago and I have become a healthier new person all together! Thank you Dr. Bonnor and January was great too! I could not have done this without you!
