Covid conscious office!
Mar 6, 2021
We all have nothing to really sell but ourselves......FIRST.....no matter what we are doing. At no time did I feel the staff was doing anything but giving me information with options and diagrams related to how my body could be affected by a procedure. The staff approached my case as INDIVIDUAL, with clear explanations of where my body is now, and how their efforts might improve my ability to manage my weight.

Excellent Experience, Sharon my nurse, was well versed in Bariatric medicine having personal experience as a patient herself. She worked to make sure that my chart reflected a mirror image of my present health condition and medications that I am taking.
