If you are reading this, you have more than likely decided that the lap band procedure is a good idea for you. The next big decision to be made is, which doctor is the right one for you? I was lucky. I found the exact doctor for me after only one interview, and that doctor was Dr. Monali Misra. As a businessowner, time is important, and finding Dr. Misra early in my search certainly saved me time and stress! Sometimes life just breaks your way, and it certainly did in my choice of lap band doctors!

I immediately felt at ease with Dr. Misra because it was obvious that she knew her business, AND she took time to know ME. She answered every single question that I had, and she even anticipated a few questions that I was a bit too embarrassed to ask. I felt from the very start that Dr. Misra and I had a great rapport which has developed into a fantastic working relationship, even friendship, all focused on my success.

Dr. Misra is supported by a fantastic team of professionals who helped me through every step of the way, beginning with insurance and financing. They were totally focused on finding a way for me to make this meaningful step in my life happen. They walked me through all of the steps and cheered me on and cheered me up when I got scared (I admit it, I did get a little scared at times!).

It has been a little over a year since my lap band procedure. Since that time, I have lost about 50 pounds, and I am still losing! I recently had a set of tests done, and my cholesterol is now 165, and my blood sugar is within normal ranges. I still have work to do, but I am confident that I will reach my goals because I still have Dr. Misra and her team cheering me on and urging me forward. I urge you to feel free to ask questions. No question is too "dumb" and no question will make you look "stupid." Believe me, if it's an unasked question that is keeping you from taking this vital step in your health journey, it is an important question!

Not that long ago, my eleven year old daughter came up to me to give me a hug. She immediately stepped back and said, "Daddy, I can reach all the way around you when I hug you!" I asked her if she was getting bigger or if I was getting smaller. She said, "I think a little bit of both." Because I got the lap band, I plan to get many more hugs from my daughter, and every one of them from now on will reach all the way around! Many thanks to Dr. Misra and her team of people dedicated to my success, because MY success is THEIR success! I could not recommend her more highly.

"Dr. Misra is just plain wonderful! While in the decision process to get the lap band procedure done, she met with me one-to-one and went through my options thoroughly. She wanted to make sure that I had all of the information about the different procedures available in gastric surgeries. She didn't rush me. She answered all of my questions. She was kind and patient. This was so incredibly important to me as this was such a huge decision (and life changing). There hasn't been a time when I've reached out to her that she wasn't available to me. My care was and continues to be very important to her. She has impeccable credentials not only as a surgeon but also in gastric bypass as a specialty. She knows her stuff. You can find a lot of surgeons that do, but few really care about the person. She's warm, friendly, with an excellent "bed side manner." I would highly recommend Dr. Misra to anyone considering a gastric procedure. My surgery was a few months ago. I'm down 36 pounds and not looking back. I can thank her for giving me a new outlook on life, a healthier "me" and (soon!) a smokin' body!!" –Sunny Bain-*

"I had severe diverticulitis and was very fortunate to have been placed under the care of Dr. Mona Misra. She was at all times honest and straight-forward with me. I am truly honored, grateful and extremely thankful for having her as my physician. Quite frankly, Dr. Misra gave me my life back." –Sandra K-*

"Having Dr. Misra as my doctor was the best decision I could have made. I was very unsure of the process and had so many questions. She was extremely patient and comforting to me - her knowledge and tender nature made my experience well worth it. She is top notch! Gratefully, looking good and still working on it!!" –DA-*

We feel great, and look better in our clothes. I feel so much better going up the stairs, I don't need to take a break anymore, and best of all when I tie my shoes the bow is in the middle and not on the side! Plus I can go shopping now and buy regular size clothing! My self-confidence is up, and I feel much cuter. All we do is follow exactly what Dr. Misra tells us to do, and the results are there. We pay attention to calorie intake and the sensation of being full. We find that we eat so little and get satisfied after smaller portions. We didn't realize what we were missing out on until we got healthy, and now our marriage is stronger too.*

I want to Thank Dr.Misra and Beverly Hills Physicians for changing my life. At my heaviest I was 287 and after being depressed and having trouble shopping for basic needs such as panties because I can't fit in them I decided I needed to make a change. I chose the Gastric Sleeve wls and have not regretted it one bit! Day of surgery I weighed 262 and 6 months later im down 77lbs at 185 and down from a size 24 to a 16. Also from a 3/4x to a large in shirts and DRESSES. Yes I said Dresses!! I would never have been comfortable in short dresses being the weight that I was. This weight loss has boosted my confidence and self esteem and physically, emotionally i feel like a whole new person. I know this journey will continue for the rest of my life. If i can inspire and motivate anyone to choose to be healthy and happy then i will be satisfied. I want to thank Dr.Misra and the entire BHP staff for helping me change my life forever. Sincerely*

I have always hated hearing "if I could do it, so can you" because I always tried and failed. I have done every diet known to man. I realized I needed help. I walked into Dr. Misra's office and told her how scared I was to fail again. She walked me through everything and assured me she would be there for me through the whole process; and she has! I had lap-band surgery in August of 2010 and in just shy of 2 years I had lost 100 lbs. It wasn't easy and weight loss surgery doesn't mean you don't have to work at it, but it was the missing piece for me. I worked out, ate as best I could and with the assistance of the lap-band, I didn't binge on food which was a major issue for me. Dr. Misra was honest about everything and encouraging when I struggled, because any weight loss journey is a struggle. Today I am in the best shape of my life and I wouldn't have been able to be there without Dr. Misra and the lap-band. Being a woman struggling with weight, it was nice to have a female doctor who could understand and relate. She always made me feel like family when I would walk through her door. I have reached out to her in this past year of maintenance and it's nice to know that she will be there for me in the future!*
