I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Darido and his team! From my first consultation to post-op, they made the entire process an absolute breeze and were there every step of the way. One of the things that sets Dr. Darido apart from others is the ability to contact him directly with questions. He’s quick to respond, very involved and overall a very knowledgeable doctor. Thank you, Dr. Darido, for all that you do!

Dr. Darido is a very good surgeon. He was willing to actually FIX my hiatal hernia and I'm no longer in frequent pain. I have been able to eat a completely normal diet including coffee and spicy food with no issues.

I am one week post op and wanted to take a minute to thank Dr. Darido and staff for all of their help to get through the procedure. Honestly this was the best decision I’ve made in a long time. I have been suffering from complications of unmanaged acid reflux for years. The only thing my doctor and Gastroenterologist would do was change my meds which would work for awhile and then back to the constant pain and discomfort. By the time I got to Dr. Darido my quality of life was deteriorating. In constant discomfort, coughing, regurgitating, losing sleep, etc. One week out of surgery no acid reflux symptoms at all, recovery is better than expected. Dr. Darido, his staff and First Surgical Center made it almost too easy. Don’t wait like I did, until I had severe damage to my esophagus, if you have complications from acid reflux I encourage you to call.

1 year out from Nissen Fundoplication. Had horrible acid reflux that was starting to damage my esophagus and a hiatal hernia. No more symptoms, my eating is better and have lost weight even though this was a side effect and not the reason for the procedure, but I'll take it. The hospital they use was amazing, everything was taken care of when I had the procedure. Extremely happy with the results and especially with proactively protecting myself from possible esophageal cancer from the constant damage to the tissue from the acid reflux. Great place and great group of people. The insurance lady, Isabel I believe, was very helpful and thorough.

2016- 21 years old Hiatial Hernia, Nissen fundoplication, severe acid reflux, vomiting of bile, stomach pain, etc. Dr. Darido and his team did a great job, recovery process was quicker than expected, a textbook surgery is what I would call it. 5 stars.

I suffered from acid reflux for 20 years. I have been on meds for it for those 20 years. About 18 years ago my bone density went from good to severe osteopenia. So doctor adds another medicine. All these years later by research I find that the acid reflux meds cause osteoporosis. I can’t go one day without the protonix. My blood pressure is high, my sleep pattern is sketchy, my acid reflux, even with meds comes and goes. Th fear of getting Barrett’s syndrome (esophagus disease) worries me. My research leads me to Dr. Darido. He is confident in his medical practice. He explains everything in detail. I had to have a complete heart work up due to my age (65), which I should have had years ago anyway. The surgery for me was not painful. Even the large hiatal hernia repair has been good. The incisions are sore, but I did well. I can only take my bp and depression meds for a month, so go over your meds with the doctor. My blood pressure has not been this good in 20 years. The damage acid reflux and a hiatal hernia can do to your body is amazing. Do it. Consider the surgery. Make your life better. Dr Darido is the first man that told me he would change my life, and actually did! Lol.

I love Dr. Darido! I am 1 week post op and I have absolutely zero heartburn and I feel amazing. He repaired my hernia and did the Gastric Sleeve. I am off medicine and like I said, I am feeling better than ever. If you are looking for a knowledgeable doctor to help you relieve heartburn/acid reflux I would Definitely recommend Dr. Darido. His office staff is also great!

Before my surgery I had too much acid on my stomach. I was not able to sleep because of choking at night fro. Acid reflux. I was constantly coughing. I was referred to dr Elias Darido at houston heartburn and reflux center by my PCP. Dr Darido recommended hiatal hernia repair and Nissen fundoplicatio. Surgery was succesful. Cough dissapeared next day after surgery. I'm very happy i can sleep all night. Thank you Dr Darido for saving my life. no more acid reflux!! No more pills.
