What our patients think of Dr. Brian M. Long.

"I am a respiratory therapist and did some research before choosing a clinic. I found Dr. Brian Long and I could not be happier. He explained my options to me and what he felt would be best for me. I appreciated the fact that some background goes into the decision such as nutrition and consulting to ensure you are in the right state of mind. I am 5 months post op and I'm down 71 pounds. I'm running 3 miles, 4-5 times a week now. I feel fantastic and I love that I treat food with a different mindset. It is for nutrition only not for pleasure. Thank you Dr. Long!!!"
