Laparoscopic Associates of San Francisco giving back

Dr. Cirangle and the LapSF team are pleased to give back to the local and national community through financial contributions, time and in-kind donations and gifts.

Dr. Cirangle credits his passion to help people and animals to his upbringing. "Having both parents as teachers has really provided me with a strong sense of community and the importance of giving back. Being a leader in the bariatric community has given me a wonderful platform to educate others about the perils of obesity and the benefits of weight loss surgery. As for my canine friends, how could you not help?" His love for all pooches leads back to childhood, when he considered becoming a veterinarian. He has provided forever homes to several rescue dogs and is proud to have a dog-friendly office.
