“I respect Dr Ladosci as he truly cares about his patients and their health and outcomes first. His main concern is that you are safe to have the procedure. And, secondary, he wants his patients to have realistic expectations of what the results can be. After the procedure has been done, the care and follow up have been great! Other doctors respect him, and also like to work with him. He is very thoughtful, caring and respectful to me as a patient. He is sincere. There have been times I needed to wait, but that is because he cares about his other patients too! And, that is balanced by him working me in when it was necessary. We are all important to him!”

“From the staff to the Surgical Center, they made me, my husband and my son feel very welcomed and appreciated. Dr. Ladocsi is an incredible doctor as well as a person…. Open, honest and very sincere. He is completely dedicated to his work. He is passionate about making sure the end result is what the patient is wanting. So often, doctors tend to be dismissive and focus on their own idea of what the results should be and not the patients wishes. He is diligent in creating a natural-looking appearance for the outcome of the procedure. His dedication to constantly educate himself is a testament to his professionalism, and his desire to have the end result look natural, is a testament to his compassion. He is a master at his trade!!”

“I am hard to impress and do not normally trust rapidly. Dr. Ladocsi was impressive from the first visit and, amazingly, earned my trust at the same time. He is an outstanding professional, is intuitive in deciding how to interact with patients according to their volatile emotional states (mine vacillated greatly due to an unexpected return of breast cancer and the need for bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction). He was exceptional! His calming, positive, supportive approach while maintaining a forward looking focus kept me upbeat. The results: beyond my wildest expectations. I am cancer free, pain free, am not disfigured and have a great deal to be thankful for: and that includes being the patient of this remarkable physician.”

“In 2008, I found myself fast approaching 420 pounds in a continued decade-long struggle with my weight. I was very unhealthy, with a list of co-morbidities that would most likely have resulted in an early exit for me. I knew I needed to change something to be around for my family and decided to have the gastric bypass. The surgery was a success and over the course of 14 months I lost 240 lbs and dropped from a 56 waist to a 36 waist…20 inches!!! Nearly 5 years later I was successful in changing my habits and lifestyle and was able to keep the weight off where so many others had failed. The by product of such massive weight loss was the amount of skin hanging from my stomach. I decided that I needed to explore surgery to remove the skin and fix my abdomen and improve the way my clothes fit. The first surgeon I approached spent 5 minutes with me, told me what I needed and walked out the room. No questions. No discussion. No information other then the surgery he felt I needed. It felt cold and impersonal; almost as if talking to me was an inconvenience to his schedule. That did not set well with me and I decided to seek a second opinion. I then found Dr. Lewis Ladocsi. What a completely different experience from the first doctor! Dr. Ladocsi started by asking about me, my weight loss success, how I had been successful in keeping the weight off, and the overall impact it had on my life. When we discussed the reason for my visit he asked a lot of questions regarding what I was looking for in a surgical result, how much time I was willing to invest in recovery, and what I had in mind as a starting point. Once he understood my story, he began to give me options around procedures, techniques, and answered my multitude of questions around each of those two topics. His warm unassuming manner made me feel very comfortable and right at home. Dr. Ladocsi never pressured me to make a decision but rather gave me options to consider and make my own informed decision. On the day of the surgery he came in after I was prepped to make sure I understood exactly what I was getting ready to do and what I could expect in detail after the surgery as well as assure me that he would be one phone call away when I woke up and got home and began the healing process. The results are fantastic!!! The surgery and subsequent healing have gone exactly as he said and I found the follow up to be refreshing in that I wasn’t treated like a post surgery afterthought; but rather just as important as the day I came in for the consult. If you are looking for a surgeon who cares, is invested, and desires to set the bar for excellence not only in surgical results and outcome but also in patient care and interaction…look no further then Dr. Ladocsi.”
