I went to another surgeon for a consultation and never felt comfortable with him. So one night I went on google and found LIO, filled out the contact information & went to bed. To my surprise, I received a call in the morning, and from that moment I knew I made the right decision. I met with Erin and then Dr. Andrew Godwin. They are both amazing and knowledgeable. I asked Erin from the moment I met her if she would be with me on my surgery day and sure enough, she was there with Dr. Godwin. Dr. Godwin is extremely professional and tells you what he expects from you and how to use the tool he has given you to help you reach your goal. If you’re looking for a team that’s extremely knowledgeable and passionate about seeing you succeed look no further. You won’t regret it​​​​​​​

I've been a patient of Dr. Buchin for 5 months now. I am so very thankful to him and his wonderful staff for their guidance, expertise, and genuine caring. I would not have been able to start and continue with this journey without them. Dr. Buchin helped me gain back the confidence and discipline that I lost after years of being obese. I feel amazingly healthy for the first time in many years. Thank you for giving me my life back ♡​​​​​​​

Dr. Buchin saved my life. In a year I’ve lost over 100 pounds. I feel and look like I’m in my 20’s again. My health is 100%. My marriage is stronger than it’s ever been after 20 years. It’s like when we first started dating. We found this new passion together of healthy living. We walk together, bike ride and work out and while we do this we communicate which we didn’t do before because we would sit and watch TV. This new active lifestyle is all thanks to Dr. Buchin. He has guided me through this new lifestyle. I want to tell the world because I want them to feel as good as I do. Thank you Dr. Buchin.​​​​​​​

I am so happy I made the choice to have bariatric surgery with Dr. Buchin and wish I had done it sooner. My results speak for themselves and now my son, my best friend, even my boss have gone to Dr. Buchin!! I would highly recommend it to anyone who is struggling with weight loss!​​​​​​​

I have struggled with my weight my whole life. As I got older I was told I had PCOS, thyroid, and diabetes which didn’t help my weight. I was referred to Dr. Buchin and he recommended the sleeve. 10/27/2019 was the day my life changed for the better. I have lost over 80lbs and I am not done yet. So many family and friends have been so inspired by my change they too have gone to see dr Buchin including my husband. I am beyond blessed and thankful for Dr. Buchin and the staff. I am going to continue to refer anyone who is looking to having a healthier lifestyle him. He is beyond amazing. I wish I can give more than 5 ⭐️ We love you Dr. Buchin and the staff.​​​​​​​

Dr. Buchin and his staff are beyond amazing. My specific case was incredibly difficult and luckily Dr. Buchin was able to take me on as a patient. I had gotten lap band in 2009 with another doctor which led to many, many complications. Thankfully in 2016, I met Dr. B, who was able to remove my eroded lapband endoscopically (which was the coolest and really rare!) and 6 months later he gave me roux-en-y gastric bypass. I am so happy that I landed at Long Island Obesity as everyone there is passionate, knowledgeable, and wonderful to work with. Dr. Buchin and his staff are truly a special team and I would go through this process a million times over just because of them. It's been an incredibly long journey and I feel the best that I've ever felt in my entire life!​​​​​​​

I've said it before and I will say it again... There is absolutely no one better than Dr. Buchin and his staff. He did my sleeve almost 2 yrs ago and no matter how busy he is, he sees me for every one of my follow-up appts. Every time I call the office, the staff is kind and caring and never makes me feel unimportant. If you want weight loss surgery with amazing results and amazing care, the only one to go to is Dr. Buchin!​​​​​​​

I went to Long Island Obesity Surgery in May 2019. Today I had my 1yr anniversary and couldn't be happier. I have lost 94lbs in one year and I feel amazing. The staff at LIOS are supportive, friendly and so encouraging. They answered all my questions, even the silly ones. They made me feel comfortable and never alone. I would highly suggest Dr. Buchin and his staff to anyone who is serious about getting their life back and enjoying being in their own skin. I am 40yrs old and getting a second chance to make the most of my life. Thank you Long Island Obesity Staff!​​​​​​​

Dr. Buchin and his team...nothing but the greatest in professionalism, skill, and patient care. Dr. Buchin is very knowledgeable in his field and is truly compassionate about the care he delivers. There is never that feeling of being left alone; a well-established system of support is in place for everyone. I can tell that he and his team want to see their patients succeed not just in the short term, but for the long haul. I can see that is genuine and is the goal for all of their patients. Since seeing Dr. Buchin and his team, I've lost close to 140lbs. I never thought I would get another chance at a healthy lifestyle again; to have a shot at a better life. Thank you Dr. Buchin, Dr. Godwin, Erin, Patti, Lacy, and the entire staff at LIOS. You are all amazing at what you do and I am forever grateful.​​​​​​​
