Message from Our Founder, Saniea F. Majid, MD, FACS, FASMBS

I am a Weight Loss Surgeon performing surgical and non-surgical options for my patients. I have been trained by world experts in the field of Obesity, and I have chosen to dedicate my career to help individuals fight this disease.

This is truly my passion and I find no greater joy than seeing my patients lose weight and gain control over their life and health; and seeing individuals potentially cured of their chronic illnesses, including hypertension, diabetes, sleep apnea among others.

I founded the Metabolic and Bariatric service line at Saint Michael’s Medical Center in Newark in 2012 which became a Center of Excellence, the highest level of National Accreditation for a hospital.

I am proud to serve on the Board of Directors for the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) Foundation. In March 2021, I became the President of the New Jersey chapter of ASMBS.

11-28-22Today I was really nervous when I walked in the weight loss and wellness center but after talking with Dr. Majid and her staff the nervousness started fading away. I love the fact of having a nutritionist that would assist you along your journey. They answered my questions that was really concerning to me and was worm and welcoming. I decided to have the sleeve done because I’ve tried for over five years or better to loose this weight and I’m ready to get off all these medications, just sick and tired of being sick and tired. So excited
Response from the owner: So proud of you for taking action and putting your health above your fears! That takes courage 👏👏👏. We appreciate your trust in us. We take this very seriously. #weightlosssurgery
Dr Majid is amazing! I just had a Gastric Band over Bypass removed less than a week ago and feel the difference already. She saved my life. I had an esophagus measuring only 1/2 inch in diameter to swallow food which was slowly killing me without even knowing. I knew I had issues keeping anything down but did not realize how serious. Besides all the adhesions and scar tissue in my stomach and esophagus. Thank you Dr Majid for basically saving my life! Now onto healing my body and getting back on the correct nutrition plan.
Response from the owner: Extremely grateful for the trust you put in myself. Taking care of my patients is our number one priority. Thank you !
Love the way they treat their patients and Dr Majid has made a life changing in my health. She treats her patients with care and love and they always look out for them. Thank you so much Dr. Majid

Muy buenas atenciones es excelente un equipo extraordinary
My name is Madeline Butler just to clarify that because I see this is coming up under my daughters log in but anyway, I met Dr. Majid in 2018 as she was referred to me from my primary doctor. The reason they referred me to her because I had a lot of things wrong with me health wise, not only do I have Lupus but I had high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea and the list goes on. I’m so thankful that I did get the chance to meet her because this was being done for health reasons not to go by a lil red dress or out of vein I did it cause I was young and sick. I had my surgery in July 2018 and I no longer have the things I mentioned before (of course I still have Lupus) but all the other things was just to much on my body. I thank GOD for Dr. Majid even a year later she still keeps in touch with me and she truly cares about her patients. Her heart is truly to help those fight obesity and you don’t find to many doctors that take there time and are truly in love with there work. If anyone is reading this post and your contemplating having surgery do it, it has totally changed my life for the better and I had the best doctor, which even under maintenance she with me every step of the way. Pls do your homework because you have the best teacher right in front of you and if I can go thru this with all my medical problems I know you can too! Love u Dr. Majid for caring about me so much that you’d probably saved my life. God Bless you and keep up your positive and passionate work to help ppl you truly do it from the heart and not for the money.
I have had a pleasant experience here the staff is well mannered and kind and Dr.Majid is super nice and caring excellent bedside manners and extremely knowledgeable I definitely recommend her for weightloss surgery and or consultations and other methods of weightloss
