I am beyond grateful to have found them and to have completed my revision surgery with them this passed February. The support and education provided without a doubt sets each patient up for a successful surgery and the after care allows each of us to move forward with a sense of purpose and certainty that we will succeed.

"I went for my one year post op today and I still can’t believe how lucky I was to find Dr. Buchin and his office. I had been going to another doctor and it felt like a factory. Dr. Buchin took me as a patient and made me feel comfortable and safe. I will never regret switching doctors. He has an amazing bedside manner and his entire office is just as friendly and welcoming. My only regrets are not going to him sooner and having the surgery done sooner. He is extremely professional and comforting. Explains everything every step of the way and answers all questions. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr. Buchin and his entire office.​​​​​​​"

"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 the lapband in 2009 with another doctor which led to many, many complications. Thankfully in 2016, I met Dr. Buchin, who was able to remove my eroded lapband endoscopically (which was the coolest and really rare!) and 6 months later he gave me a Roux-en-y gastric Bypass. I am so happy that I landed at Long Island Obesity Surgery 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!​​​​​​"

"As a medical professional myself- I am very selective with my care. Dr. Buchin and his staff have saved my life physically, mentally and emotionally- Being a patient over 7 years, Dr. Buchin and his staff continue to give me the Newest, best and compassionate care on LI. I would recommend him to anyone who wants the best and brightest in Bariatric and continued Surgical care! I owe my life and continued success to him and his staff. Support groups, nutrition to continued care no matter how long post op you are; they really are leaders in continued care and success. Losing over 250 lbs and keeping it off over six years with their medical care and support!​​​​​​"

"Both my parents and I have gotten the gastric sleeve and we all received the best pre and post care imaginable. Dr. Buchin’s knowledge is abundant and makes it super easy and understandable for his patients. I weighed 190lbs and now after five months I’ve lost 71lbs and weigh 119lbs. Would recommend to anyone wanting to change their lifestyle for the better". "Thank you Dr. Buchin​​​​​"

"I have had nothing but positive experiences with Dr. Buchin and his amazing staff. The office is clean and they run on time. Dr. Buchin is great. He has an extremely knowledgeable and dedicated team who are extremely courteous and always there to assist in any way. Dr. Buchin and Erin Nastro consistently answer all my questions and are straight forward. Seriously, he is the first doctor that ever made me consider going outside of my HMO plan. I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a first class Bariatric Medicine team!​​​​​​​"

"I am 3 months post-surgery and am so happy with my new life. I have been to many doctors’ offices in my life, but never one like Dr. Buchin’s. From Sara, who is the first person to meet and greet us, to Lacy, Patty, Erin (Dr. B’s right arm) these women are the way to a wonderful Dr. I am so very happy I entrusted this office to help me enter this new and wonderful new journey of mine. If after reading this, you go somewhere else for your journey......I’m sorry for you.​​​​​​​"

"Dr. Buchin was not my physician, he was called in as a consult because of his reputation. I have never met a more caring and genuine person in a hospital before. My husband was a patient in Huntington Hospital and Dr. Buchin was not even his doctor, he was called in briefly as a consult but took the time to fully explain things to us in laymen's terms. When our doctors were not available to answer questions (which was often) he always came and answered our questions until we were fully satisfied and understood. He came daily just to check on my husband, even in the evenings when no other doctors were to be found. Most surprisingly the weekends!!! It's like you don't exist on the weekends, but there was Dr. Buchin. No matter what day or time, he was accessible to us. He was so patient answering the same questions over and over as he knew this was such a stressful time in our lives and he did everything he could possibly do to reassure us. Whenever we contacted the office we never felt like they were put off by our calls over and over again. They were so friendly, pleasant and understanding and truly helpful. I would recommend this doctor to anyone! I wish they were all as dedicated and professional and kind as he.​​​​​​​"

I have lost and kept off over 160 lbs. The change is asronomical. I am hittig the gym, competing in athletics, doing things i never though I would do due to my weight. I highly reccomend anyone thinking of havig a bariatric procedure done...go see Dr B. Dont be scared. This gentleman will change your life!"

"Dr. Buchin and his practice are, and were, amazing! Throughout the entire process, from information session just to learn about bariatric surgery, through follow up care after surgery, they are accessible, knowledgeable, sensitive, and caring. I felt comfortable and relaxed from the first time I stepped into his office. The monthly support groups, and Facebook patient support group foster a real sense of camaraderie among his patients, and probably increases overall compliance and long term success. Dr. Buchin even joined a group of patients for a "Color Run" 5K! Best bariatric doctor I've ever met!"

"In April I had a laparoscopic procedure called Nissen Fundoplication done by Dr Buchin. This procedure is done to repair the valve between the esophagus & stomache to prevent GERD. I had been suffering badly with this for many years, also I had a lot of difficulty in eating due to food getting stuck in this area when eating, almost every meal. I was in the hospital only one night post op surgery, and one week later I was fine to return to work. I no longer have GERD, problems with eating, and I no longer take proton pump inhibitors that I had been on for a long time ( they were barely helping at this point ). This surgery resulted in an unbelievable improvement in my quality of life. Dr Buchin performed an incredible surgery for me, the results are AMAZING, and I can’t thank him enough!!!"

"Dr. Buchin is an amazing surgeon with great bed side manner! Its been almost one year since my surgery and I'm more than thrilled with my results and with his continuous support and guidance. What makes Dr Buchin stand out from all other doctors is his skill, knowledge, and accessibility. Whenever I have a question he always responds immediately and his staff always makes sure I come in for my follow up appointments. Sometimes there is a wait but I know its because he takes his time with each pt, answering all of their questions. I love that Dr. Buchin is always at the support groups answering all of our questions! I couldn't ask for anything more from such an outstanding team. Thanks Dr. B for all of your help on my weight loss journey!"

"Choosing the right bariatric surgeon was a very difficult decision until I met Dr Buchin. The professionalism, the bedside manner, the pre-op and post-op care among other outstanding interactions that I've experienced from Dr Buchin himself and his office stuff made this journey of mine the most comfortable one. Dr Buchin is a true professional and an amazing person. From my first interaction with him at the consultation appointment to the 6th month after the operation follow up, he has shown a great deal of interest in my progress and has being there for me for all of my questions and concerns. His office stuff is outstanding and will go above and beyond to help you dealing with insurance, coordinating appointments and supporting you with diet and appropriate recommendations to keep you motivated. Finally, if bariatric surgery is your treatment of choice then I highly recommend to you my doctor, Dr David Buchin.​"

"Dr Buchin holds regular group support meetings for ore and post op patients to discuss the entire process. He and his staff are experts on the approval criteria and process with insurance requirements and thoroughly prepares his patients with what to expect at every step per and post procedure. I had surgery on a Wednesday and was back at my desk the following Monday. The only real restriction was not being able to fly for a few weeks after surgery. I would definitely recommend the procedure and Dr Buchins practice Long Island Obesity​"
