"Dr. K exceeded all my expectations." - Patient Oct 9th, 2012
"Dr. Kakkilaya was really great. He gave me all the information I sought and answered all the questions I had. I decided to have the Sleeve Gastrectomy procedure because I felt that it gave me the added benefit of appetite suppression. The procedure involved an overnight stay and I was gone by next morning. The nurses and support staff –everyone at MHSC made me feel comfortable. Today, I definitely feel better all around – mentally and physically. My blood pressure is back to normal, my diabetes is gone, and I am sleeping better. I am playing more golf and feeling better while doing it. I notice I have more stamina – if I am on the range, I can hit more balls without becoming too tired. I am working out more. My energy is up and my overall outlook on life is better than ever! My experience was very very positive with Dr. Kakkilaya and the team – Kelli, Joni, the nurses. Everyone was excellent. I could not have asked for a better experience." Patient, Sept 2010
