Dr. Michael Feiz on What Makes a Great Bariatric Physician
Date:10/1/2013

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ask Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S., about why he chose weight loss surgery as his specialty, and he might tell you that it chose him. "It all started with the fact that I am very good technically at being able to work with laparoscope and a TV screen.
