Nothing less than phenomenal
I choose 360 Sleeve after a very detailed information session with Dr Irshad 8 months ago. I had surgery 6 months ago, and every day I know that I made the right choice. The pre op and post op support has been nothing less than phenomenal. Alina in the office is just wonderful. A special acknowledgement to Yolanda who was right there with me every single step of the way. Yolanda is not only fantastic at her job and taking care of you, she is also just a lovely person.
The day of surgery Dr Irshad, Dr Kundhal & Dr Giad took the time to make sure I was comfortable, prepared and answered any last minute questions. The nursing & administration staff we all kind, caring, patient and attentive. The follow up care has been amazing, Dr. Kundhal has been so kind, patient and thorough during all of the follow up visits and whenever I needed anything at all.
If I could give more then 5 stars I would.
6 months later I have lost 80 lbs and living my best life thanks to the team at 360 Sleeve.
Best care I've ever experienced
Clinic 360 is where I underwent VSG (sleeve) surgery. After a lot of research I chose Clinic 360 based on their reviews and attention to client details. I have to say I have never felt so cared for in regards to my health. From Alana the office manager, to Yolanda my head nurse and Dr. Irshad my surgeon…the care has been the best I’ve ever experienced.
I have never had surgery or even stitches, so I was quite nervous despite the fact I knew I was in good hands. From the second I walked in the clinic (which is so beautiful), I instantly was relaxed and greeted with smiles. My anxiety was instantly calmed by the attention I received.
Waking up from surgery was very pleasant, I was greeted with three smiling faces (my overnight nurses). I had no pain, I felt wonderful actually. My nurses cared for me amazingly and there was never a time I even moved without one of them being there. It was one of the greatest sleeps I’ve had!
If you are considering VSG surgery then there is honestly no reason to look any further. I am only 2 weeks out, feeling incredible, tolerating everything and it’s thanks to Clinic 360. The attention to their clients doesn’t end when the surgery is done, in the two weeks I’ve been recovering I’ve talked to my amazing dietician twice and my surgeon twice. I am a priority at Clinic 360, and it doesn’t go unnoticed.
Thank you for getting me on the path to being the best version of myself.
Felt like home
I had my sleeve done March 5th 2022. There are no words to describe the treatment I got here. From the moment I walked in I felt like home. There wasn’t a moment where I felt nervous, shy or insecure, there were so many laughs, great conversations and warm smiling faces. Dr. Irshad and Dr. Kundhal are absolutely amazing, Dr Irshad explained to me the surgery procedure and made me feel so relaxed before entering the operating room. From the moment I woke up I was surrounded by the kindest staff. They never left my side. My assigned nurse Yolanda is a new friend for life. She has a heart of gold. I gained a new family. I love them all so much! All the staff at clinic360/360sleeve are amazing. You all made what could have been a stressful situation an amazing experience! I’m so happy they get to be a part of my journey ♡
