Dr. Metz is the most caring, professional, and knowledgeable surgeon I have ever been a patient of. I tell all of my friends and coworkers to go to him. I am a nurse on a surgical unit at a teaching hospital and I am impressed by Dr. Metz and his willingness to share his knowledge with others, he actually told me any of our residents who are wanting to learn his skill he will mentor because he wants people to learn the right way for patient's safety. I will be having surgery again soon and I feel very confident in Dr.Metz! Not to mention he has an excellent team behind him. HE IS A TEN STAR SURGEON!!!

Dr. Metz and his entire staff are incredible! They are very personable, you feel like they really honestly care about you. They take their time with you and don't make you feel rushed or like you are not a priority. I was and still am very impressed with them! My surgery went so smoothly and every time I had the tiniest question Dr. Metz always called me back right away to answer me. I highly recommend Dr. Metz and his staff!


I am 4 years out from my gastric sleeve. Dr. Metz is just as approachable and concerned today as he was when I walked into his office in 2015. I believe he saved my life. Since my surgery I am a happy, healthy world traveler. I have been a nurse for 40 years and I have known many physicians. Dr. Metz is one of the most skillful and caring doctors/surgeons have ever known.
