Patient Testimonial

This review is long overdue. My Mom had surgery in February 2021 with Dr. Darido (Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication). His hard work and expertise has completely changed my Mom’s life. We were at a point where we were hopeless – she had horrible symptoms EVERY DAY from her severe GERD. Many doctors were not helpful – they kept changing medications, thinking it would help FOR YEARS. We kept going back with issues and she was getting worse. My sister did some research and found Dr. Darido and his team. I wish we found him sooner. We traveled from Las Vegas, NV – he did testing on a Tuesday and did surgery on a Thursday. I cannot thank Dr. Darido and his team enough, THANK YOU SO MUCH! You gave me my Mom back. We appreciate everything you guys did, and we plan on coming back for future follow-ups if necessary. THANK YOU.
