  1. God bless him for what he has done and continues to do in helping the morbidly obese. I had surgery as well. He is a Godsend. I hope God blesses him with health, happiness, wealth and a long life. I love you Doc.

  2. I applaud Dr.Now for all he has done to help the obese population live long and healthy lives physically, socially and emotionally through his superb surgical abilities. May God bless you!

  3. Un cordial saludo Dr now.!! Soy de Venezuela veo siempre su programa y admiro mucho como ayuda a sus pacientes … Lamentablemente tengo mucha distancia para llegar a usted pero aún así . Quisiera obtener su ayuda para bajar de peso.!!! Se q la voluntad tiene que venir de mi pero sin un apoyo firme creo q no podré lograrlo..peso 90 kg y tengo miedo de seguir aumentando como mucho dulce y es incontrolable…. Espero su pronta respuesta y gracias…

  4. I love watching Dr Now’s show. It makes me realize how important it is to be healthy. I am needing to lose just a very few pounds and watching his show has driven me to do more to get there. Thank You Dr for your honesty and bluntness with these people to get them to do what is needed to be healthy. God bless you Richly!

  5. I recently lost my dearest daughter from corona she however did have anaroexia and it breaks my heart to watch the program and see how the patients are killing themselves with eating non stop and mostly fattty junk food, I witnessed the complete opposite for many years and do not know which is worse to die at 6oo pounds or to die at 86 pounds. Either way it is heart wrenching to see how nothing seems to scare them into mending their eating habits.

  6. I watch your show all the time
    I’m not over weight, I just love the show
    I am so impress how much patience he has with the difficult patients
    You change many people lives !
    you give them hope !

    You are a God sent

  7. Thank you God for men like Dr. Now. Sometimes I can’t watch because it’s so heart breaking but, most time I just sat through it. Blessings Dr. Now.

  8. I am impressed to see Dr. Now often meeting his potential clients in the parking lot or parking garage of his practice or the hospital. He personally fetches wheel chairs or heavy looking weight scales. How many Dr’s do that? I respect his firm, fair, non-dramatic way of advising clients as well as his ability to call BS on excuses.
