"I had a Sleeve Gastrectomy in June 2019. Dr. Patching's approach to eating behaviors and exercise is exactly what I had hoped for. This process is not an,"easy fix." You have to do the work. The advice, tools, and follow up visit have made this life changing for me. I know several other people that have had bariatric procedures and didn't have the follow up plan like Dr. Patching has, and consequently have not had the same success. Everyday my journey gets better. I'm living my best life. Thank you Dr. Patching and staff. "

I cannot say enough about Dr. Patching and his staff. When you meet him he tells you if he does your surgery then he is your surgeon for life.

He has changed my life for the best life ever. I have lost over 80lbs with the sleeve tool he gave me. This process really works if you follow what this man tells you, but please remember it is all up to you. I absolutely love, appreciate, respect and need he and his staff for the rest of my life.

This was by far one of the very best decisions I have ever made for myself. If you are obese you should consider seeking out either Dr.Patching or someone like him that will truly give you the gift of living again. He does the surgery but you MUST do the work!

I met Dr. Patching 2018 when my PCP referred me for a hernia consultation. During both visits with the doctor, I was very impressed with his kind nature & warm and generous personality. 

I've really never met a doctor that I liked almost instantly. And I certainly didn't feel that our time together was rushed or cut short in any way. 

Instead, I felt he gave me his full attention, and answered all of my questions. He explained the surgery in detail to me. 

I'm so thankful that I had a chance to work with Dr. Patching.

Dr. Patching and his staff were incredibly supportive. I was very unhappy and unhealthy with many bad habits. Thanks to Dr. Patching and his personal care, I learned that I matter and all the hard work and good choices I learn has helped me become happier and healthier.

I was afraid at first and I didn’t think my current weight required surgery. But for over 4 years I tried various diets. What I needed was to be educated on weight management. Which I believe I have mastered. I believe today the key to managing your weight is portion control.

With the surgery to help me get started, and portion control, I have lost over 70 lbs. my journey is not over, but my health has improved and the confidence in my self that I can maintain this way of life change. So, if you’re on the fence of a surgery, go into a bariatric doctor and get the true facts.

Dr. Patching was clear, concise, and reassuring. Becky and the rest of the team navigated the difficulties of communication across governmental agencies in relation to my work place injury with ease. Their efforts did more to not only diagnose but treat, for the short and long term health benefits, than any other team over the last 18 months since injury. I would happily recommend them all to anyone in need of their services.

I am a patient of Dr. Patching since 2013. I was diagnosed in 2013 as "morbidly obese" with high blood pressure, diabetes, gout & high cholesterol by my primary care physician with a weight of 210lbs in a 5'2" frame. I was referred to Dr. Patching for a bariatric surgery. Dr. Patching discussed with me the pros and cons of the 3 types of surgeries and we opted for the sleeve gastrectomy. I lost 70 lbs in after the surgery from (210 lbs to 140 lbs; size XL to Small) and no more high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and gout. I also noticed too that have more positive outlook, friendlier, very active and more out going since the surgery. The caveat though is to follow the instructions of Dr. Patching. He gave me a binder that told me what food or diet to follow after the surgery and during the recuperation. It was a life style change for me and I'm proud to say that I was able to maintain my weight up to the present. My weight plays between 142-145 lbs. Getting that sleeve gastrectomy is one the best decision that I made. I definitely recommend Dr. Patching as he's friendly and very professional and cares for his patients and his office staff too are friendly, professional and have good customer/patient service.

This surgery is life changing, therefore I chose the best surgeon in all of Northern California to put my life in his hands. Because of his expertise and skills in robotic surgery I have had virtually no pain post surgery. I am one week post op and have not even taken Tylenol. I have been impressed with the staff, Becky and Nadia, by thier warmth and care in making this entire weight loss journey a success. Dr. Patching, thank you for helping me change my quality of life for the better!
