    My first visit was great. I left feeling confident and with a plan. Weight was not even mentioned in my first visit. Basically I was told I was fat and needed to lose 40 pounds during my second visit. I was also told they would get preauthorization for the CT. Not done. So basically I have to pay for CT and a second office visit. Do not bother to see Dr MacFarlane if you are depressed or over weight. Make sure preauthorization is confirmed by yourself before you have anything done.

    I saw Dr MacFarlane for a hiatal hernia. Don't recommend him at all if you suffer from depression or are fat. He knew I was fat at the very first visit and yet he ordered a CT anyway and had me return for a second visit a week later for the results. The results were to tell me what we both already knew. I am too fat for surgery. What a waste of time and money. He should have just told me I was too fat at the very first visit and saved me the cost of a CT and a second office visit.
