What patients are saying About Our Doctors

  • 554974_10150762237104881_139147669_n

    The staff was very attentive from the office to the hospital. Love the sense of humor and comfortable atmosphere they all convey.

  • 554974_10150762237104881_139147669_n

    I had a wonderful experience with the entire team from first calling in to make an appointment to post op check up. Everyone has been courteous, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I hope to never have to see you again, but if I do need a surgery, Surgical Group of North Texas will be my first choice. Thank you.

  • 554974_10150762237104881_139147669_n

    The staff at the Surgical Group was excellent. I had no trouble getting here. They made my appointment, and the service for my appointment was excellent. They answered all of my questions. I was very pleased.

  • clifford_sq

    Dr. Clifford is very friendly and knowledgable. I have been seeing him for 12 years for followup.

  • clifford_sq

    After my breast cancer diagnosis, I was referred to Dr. Clifford for a lumpectomy. Dr. Clifford has a calming presence during an extremely emotional situation. After reviewing my records, he thoroughly explained the best treatment for my situation and performed the lumpectomy. He did an outstanding job and I would recommend him to anyone facing this situation.

  • clifford_sq

    Dr. Clifford was the first doctor I saw after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. He was so calm, when I was absolutely beside myself with worry. He presented my options, giving me the choice as to how I wanted to proceeed. Before each procedure he explained what was going to happen and always answered all my questions no matter how trivial they seemed. If I needed any more surgery, he would be my first choice of Surgeons in The DFW area.

  • clifford_sq

    Having had a positive biopsy, I was in a total "panic attack" state prior to going to see Dr. Clifford. His manner was so reassuring that I left there in a far better, more calm state than when I arrived.

  • clifford_sq

    Dr. Clifford was the surgeon my Dallas gynecologist recommended, when I discovered a tiny lump in my right breast at age 67 -- 6 weeks after a "clear" mammogram! It was malignant, but Dr. C. found, in the 2nd lumpectomy, that it had not spread. He was still VERY careful to get a "safe" margin around it. It has been 6 years; I'm confident it will not return.

  • emerson-sq

    Dr. Emerson and his staff were cordial, friendly and efficient. I've had no post-operative problems to date and feel great.

  • emerson-sq

    Dr. Emerson is amazing. I hope his passion for what he does never dies. His bedside manner is admirable. He made me and my family completely comfortable. He kept my mom informed, which meant so much to me. I saw him on Tuesday and had my surgery Thursday. His confidence put me at ease. I'm grateful for my entire experience with Dr. Emerson.

  • emerson-sq

    I had a gall bladder attack, second one this year and went to the emergency room. There they determined I needed surgery asap. They scheduled me to have surgery with Dr. Emerson. Not knowing of him, made me a little nervous at first but once I met him I felt relieved. He is very attentive and answers all your questions and concerns you may have. My surgery went well and since it was a very bad case as the gall bladder was infected, I had a lot to deal with but Dr Emerson was terrific and I can't say enough about him. I highly recommend him.

  • emerson-sq

    I was suffering in pain with a gall bladder that needed to come out. He was able to get me booked quick, and even when an obstacle came up, he did not reschedule. He overcame it, waited and complete the surgery the same day. Hopefully it will never happen, but if I even need a surgeon again, I will see Dr. Emerson in a heartbeat.

  • matin_sq

    Dr. Matin is an outstanding surgeon, with a point blank manner. He is among the best in his field. Dr. Matin repaired damage from multiple surgeries as well as treated a critical infection. He saved my life, and while he has a wonderful bedside manner, he tells you the truth not what you want to hear.

  • matin_sq

    I have had 4 laproscopic surgeries. The first one with Dr. Matin. Recovery was exceptionally easy. I thought it was because it was a laproscopic type procedure. Then my gyn did a hysterectomy laproscopically. It was difficult to recover from, as well as the laproscopic gall bladder surgery I had done after that. In fact, I had to return to Dr. Matin to fix problems from that gall bladder surgery. That was the fourth laproscopic procedure and it was once again, easy to recover from. I have since come to learn that Dr. Matin is the key to having a good successful surgery and easy recovery. He is the most skilled.

  • matin_sq

    Y'all did great! It stinks having surgery but I felt like everyone cared and took great care of me. I trusted Dr. Matin and he didn't let me down. Hernia surgery is painful and he did what he could to help me manage my pain and understood when I said I didn't take my pain meds (pain meds make me nauseated). He helped find a solution. I appreciate everyone! Thank you!

  • rivera_sq

    My overall experience with Dr. Rivera and the Weight Loss Clinic staff has been excellent. There is an atmosphere of caring and concern for patients as individuals. I found that all staff members were approachable and available to answer questions and provide information. Dr. Rivera and his group helped me to make the choices for myself and were supportive and educational so that I could feel in control of my surgery and choices. Thanks Dr. Rivera and Staff - you are awesome!

  • rivera_sq

    I can truly say that my experience with Dr. Rivera and his staff from the first meeting, to scheduling my surgery, to the actual surgery and then post operation was by far the most impressive and excellent experience of my life as it now relates to having surgery. I cannot say enough about the excellent and wonderful experience I had at Baylor hospital in Grapevine, the nurses assigned to me (they were awesome!) and just the overall experience.

  • 554974_10150762237104881_139147669_n

    I was given the options, and his opinion of the outcome of each option. With his experience, knowledge and thorough explanation of the pros and cons, I felt at ease with my final decision; that my best interests and treatment were at the forefront.

  • rivera_sq

    Dr. Rivera really impressed me with his down-to-earth explanations of the procedures, as well as the tools and techniques he would be using. I felt very confident before and after the surgery, and if I had to have another procedure, he would be the first surgeon I’d call.

  • rivera_sq

    This is the second time SGNT has cared for me. Dr. Matin cared for me the first time – did a revision on a previous surgery by another physician. He was wonderful! Had another need, but Dr. Matin was on vacation, so saw Dr. Rivera. He was absolutely wonderful to us. I can’t say enough about his personal touch, professionalism, bedside manner, capability, attention to detail. He conveys a sense of trust, knowledge, and explains everything. Dr. Matin and Dr. Rivera are just personable – it’s not all business to them. I felt like I was family. I felt a complete trust from day one with them. I hope I never need them again, but would go to them over and over again if needed.

  • rivera_sq

    We felt very secure in our decision to have Dr. Rivera perform my procedure. He is ABSOLUTELY worth traveling for. He is in two great locations in the Mid-Cities AND his staff is excellent; from the front office, to his assistants, even down to his billing department. The whole team made the surgery and recovery go smoothly. I was VERY fortunate to find Dr. Rivera and his staff!”

  • 554974_10150762237104881_139147669_n

    He was fantastic for my dad and is one of the reasons he is alive today.

  • rivera_sq

    I really can’t say enough great things about Dr. Rivera, the office personnel and/or the billing department. His office and staff are phenomenal and to have that kind of trust in them during a difficult situation, makes decisions so much easier and less stressful!

  • rivera_sq

    I received great and friendly service from everyone at Surgical Group. Dr. Rivera was excellent and very knowledgeable! I would highly recommend him to family and friends.

  • matin_sq

    Dr. Matin and his staff were excellent. Everyone was very patient, knowledgeable and respectful. Veronica was extremely helpful in scheduling the surgery and answering all of our questions. I highly recommend Dr. Matin and his team!

  • matin_sq

    Dr. Matin saved my life. Before emergency surgery I was scared and crying, and he took the time to let me know that he cared and I would be okay. Not to mention how cute he is. His staff is very efficient and took the time to explain certain matters with me regarding payment, but they did it in a way that made me feel it was all on my terms. They were all professional.

  • matin_sq

    Dr. Matin and his staff have been great. Every time I call they have an answer for me, and Dr. Matin, I feel, is one of the best surgeons in his field. I want to thank him and his staff for the wonderful care and personal way they have treated me. Thank you.

  • 554974_10150762237104881_139147669_n

    Great experience. Lots of info provided. All questions asked and answered. Great doctor and office.

  • 554974_10150762237104881_139147669_n

    It’s been great and professional. No long waits, even when I am late for the appointment. The office atmosphere is pleasant and efficient. While in the hospital, I appreciated and looked forward to the doctor visits, keeping me informed of what was ahead of me. I fully realize the doctor’s extra efforts and concerns which saved my life, and I am grateful. He was very attentive to my wife and family by keeping them informed to help ease their worries.

  • rivera_sq

    I don’t know how to put into words my gratitude towards the level of care I have received being one of Dr. Rivera’s patients. His staff has been nothing less than cordial and attentive and when faced in emergency situations have exceeded expectations as to the quality of care and advice towards my recovery. I don’t know if I could have picked a better doctor to have performed my procedures. Dr. Rivera is thorough, insightful and genuinely cares about one's quality of life. Thanks, Doctor.

  • rivera_sq

    I have had a great experience with Dr. Rivera and his office staff. They have been kind and helpful every time I have asked a question. I really appreciate the fact that I have never had to wait more than a few minutes to see the doctor. If you need surgery this group is the one to come to.

  • rivera_sq

    I would like to thank the Surgical Group for all their help. They were all helpful and kind when it came to my surgery. Dr. Rivera was very professional in taking time to answer all my questions. Thanks to all.

  • shafi_sq

    The Surgical Group has been “THE” perfect group to go to for my needs. Dr. Shafi and his staff have to take care to address my Lipoma Removal from clarity of understanding to complete follow-up. Dr. Shafi is an excellent communicator taking the extra care to call and text me daily! Thank you!

  • shafi_sq

    Dr. Shafi and the staff here in Grapevine have really been just great. Dr. Shafi actually called me at home the day after my surgery to check on me. He knew I lived alone and just wanted to make sure I was doing OK. I’m still healing and tomorrow will be a month since surgery. I hope and expect to make a full recovery. Thank you! Dr. Shafi and all your staff.

  • shafi_sq

    Had a great experience. The reps were on top of getting paper work done for my insurance. Dr. Shafi was excellent! Surgery went well. I would recommend him to anyone who would need surgery. If I ever need surgery again, I would use Dr. Shafi. He is also kind and very thorough.

  • rivera_sq

    I struggled to lose weight my whole life. All the methods I tried were unsuccessful. I had to improve my health at any cost. I decided to go for gastric bypass surgery and it worked. I lost 150 lbs. I was on asthma medication, but not anymore. Thanks SWMS!

  • shafi_sq

    Dr. Shafi operated on me last year. I was nervous at first. It was my first surgery and I was concerned about what could happen. Dr. Shafi was on call and performed the surgery. If I had to do it again, I would want him for surgery. Very precise and good follow-up.

  • matin_sq

    When I needed surgery recently, I asked for a recommendation from my doctor. Without hesitation I was told to contact Dr. Sina Matin. I found him to be a great surgeon and would recommend him to anyone.

  • matin_sq

    I have had a lot of surgeries the last 7 years and Dr. Matin was by far the BEST surgeon ever! He was compassionate and easy to talk to. He was able to relieve my fears and be comfortable.

  • shafi_sq

    When I was diagnosed with a benign tumor, my primary doctor recommended me to Dr. Shahid Shafi. Consciously, I said to myself, "Shafi! What?" But without hindrance, I contacted this Dr. Shafi. I did my research and to my surprise, I found out he is a great surgeon. During my visits with Dr. Shafi in his office, he was very professional and kept me truly at ease for the surgery to come. I was afraid of the surgery until he mentioned that he had performed the surgery many times and I would be alright, but I was still afraid. Dr. Shafi is a perfectionist. His mannerism and attention to detail exceeded my probabilities. As a surgeon, he is so willing to take the stage and answer my questions. I will recommend you to family, friends and colleagues. I sincerely thank you, Dr. Shahid Shafi . "Shafi!"

  • shafi_sq

    Dr. Shafi, you were fantastic! Your bedside manner and attention to detail exceeded my expectations. I have never seen another surgeon so willing to take the time and answer my questions. Thank you for saving my life!

  • 554974_10150762237104881_139147669_n

    Before Gastric bypass surgery, my weight was 339 lbs. After Gastric bypass surgery at Surgical Weight Management Solutions, I lost 150 lbs and now my weight is 163 lbs. I am very happy with Gastric bypass surgery.

  • 554974_10150762237104881_139147669_n

    He is the best MD ever. Very kind, patient and cares a lot for his patients!

  • 554974_10150762237104881_139147669_n

    This surgery is really helpful for life. I had sleep apnea, but now it is completely gone. I have the energy to play with my grandson. I used to take eight pills a day but now I am taking just one.

  • shafi_sq

    Dr. Shafi met my husband when he was diagnosed by an internal physician with constipation. After continued pain we went to Baylor Irving TX ER and met Dr. Shafi. His bedside manner is excellent. He enters the room, introduces himself and takes a chair before he begins to discuss his diagnosis. He makes sure you understand what he has described and medical solution. My husband had an inflamed gallbladder with stones - not constipation. When my husband decided to wait a few days for surgery to complete a work assignment, it was a mistake. We were able to reach Dr. Shafi quickly and schedule surgery within a few days. With regard to ratings I would rate Dr. Shafi 5 star in every area. He is a wonderful physician.

  • matin_sq

    He is so honest and has wonderful bedside manner. His care and concern make me feel like a person, not an obese number!

  • matin_sq

    He is a wonderful doctor. He does gastric bypass and is very encouraging. He is always caring about how his patients are doing and makes sure to check on you from time to time.
