- Dr. Cirangle is fantastic. My initial consultation went great. My surgery went great. I'm looking forward to working with him for the next 3 years. I highly recommend him for the lap-band procedure.

"I felt Dr. Cirangle was the first person I have ever met that understood me and offered a permanent solution. His integrity was impeccable. Both he and his staff were always prompt and courteous. I really can't think of anything I don't like about him - I would rate him a 10 out of 10."

"Dr Cirangle is a young surgeon who I have total confidence in - for a nurse to say this is a good thing! He was easy going but very informative. He really seems to care and is very good with his patients. He is down to earth and you can actually tell he loves his job, and that is a big plus for me."
