Dear Friends & Family of LapSF and the Surgical Weight Loss Center of Hawaii,

   Here at LapSF, we hope you all are having a great summer and keeping on the weight loss track. It may be hard to stay away from the hot dogs and burgers at BBQs, or ice cream on a hot day, but it is the feeling of being healthy and happy that hopefully motivates you all to keep on the diet after surgery. This leaves us with a quote we would like to share with you all, that hopefully one you will relate to with your committment to weight loss surgery.


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.”

Meet Our New Physician Assistant: Nisha Hazari, PA

We would like to introduce our new Physician Assistant, Nisha Hazari.


Nisha Hazari, Physician Assistant, joined the practice in June 2012. She completed her Master's in PA training at Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia. She first gained experience in nephrology before transitioning to surgery. She has extensive experience in pharmaceuticals from her previous work in neurology on migraine medication and immunology on the development of flu vaccines. Nisha got her first Master's degree in cancer biology at UCSD where she earned her Bachelor's degree as well. She is eager to help patients lose weight and looks forward to meeting you soon!
