I have to start off by saying Dr. Misra is amazing – one of the sweetest caring doctors I have ever met. The first time I met Dr. Misra was at my consultation and right away I felt comfortable with her. Prior to surgery I had several questions, but felt bad and didn’t want to bother her so I decided to email her and she got back to me in a timely manner and made it clear that anytime I have any questions or concerns to feel free to call her or email her. Even to this day when I email her some questions or concerns she gets right back to me and I never feel like I am bothering her because she makes it very clear that she is concerned and wants the best for me and all of her other patients.

I had my lap band surgery on August 13, 2010 at Cedars Sinai. The day of my surgery Dr. Misra greeted my mom and I with a big hug and was very comforting explain exactly what was going to take place and reassuring my nervous mother that they were going to take good care of me. I honestly can say this procedure gave me my life back and I am the happiest I have been in years.
