“The professionalism of EVERYONE involved! From Rosie at the first contact to the driver at first pickup, to Dr. A and ALL of the Endobariatric Team! And a well-oiled team they are! I forget but it may have been Jessica at the hospital showing my wife extra attention even though I was the patient.”– Craig Carlyle
“I was impressed with all the doctor’s bedside manners. You don’t see that in America. Dr. A. even helped my mother with her luggage on discharge day and I was the patient. Never seen a doctor do that. Great staff and caring.”– Sharon Dunn
“The professionalism of everyone from the moment I contacted Rosy, all of the nurses, and of course you Dr. A. I am still in awe of the care I receive even 18 months later. You are there at the drop of a hat to answer my questions, share my success, and give encouragement when it is needed. Endobariatric was the best decision of my life.” – Brenda Wooley
“I remember standing in the hall when I first got there and was talking in Spanish to Dr. A’s father. He told me not to worry about anything that Dr. A. would take good care of me. I remember waking up to Dr. A sitting on the side of the bed holding my hand because I, apparently, was a “little” agitated…the staff was amazing…and Rosie was and still is amazing. Even 8 years out I have still been in contact with Susan and Dr. A. and they continue to offer their support and advice.”– Laurie Pringle
“The staff was very helpful and kind. I have been in the hospital many times and never had the care I had with the Endobariatric team. Simply amazing!” – Amanda Bushong

In recent years, converting previous bariatric surgeries to new sleeves has become a significant...
What happens in the bathrooms stays in the bathroom…except after gastric sleeve surgery. Because sleeve brothers and sisters talk about everything, am I right? Including, yes, constipation. It might be a touch embarrassing, but it’s very common after the sleeve, so rest assured that you’re in good company. Here are...
It’s a common refrain from my gastric sleeve patients: “I never realized how much of my social life revolved around food and drinks!” Meeting up for post-work cocktails, grabbing a bite to eat before a movie, digging into big family dinners…it’s tough to think of an instance when eating and...
