  "From the first time visiting Healthier Weight to the completion of my operation I can only say that my surgeon Mr Singhal filled me with confidence to go ahead. I have a few health issues that were taken care of completely. A very caring and helpful gentleman "

  "The operation and consultant Mr Singhal was beyond excellent."
Amy C.

  "My experience with Healthier Weight has been excellent throughout. From the  Patient care Co-ordinator, Cavell, to the nursing team through to the hospital team at the wonderful Priory hospital. Mr Singhal was the ideal surgeon throughout. My procedure was complicated because I’d had invasive abdominal surgery over 30 years ago. Mine was a complicated case! Mr Singhal planned my treatment and made sure everything went well. I had mini gastric bypass surgery and  I couldn’t recommend the service highly enough"
