From the office admin staff to the nurses and Dr S himself, my experience was first-rate. I would much prefer to trust my life in a surgery to him with his experience. The pre-surgery gastric sleeve process was a bit disorganized to me but it went well. I hope they change up a bit and set patients up with the full binder of info and instructions long before they now do that. It would really help.
