I have recently undergone Gastric Sleeve surgery with Dr. O. He is my hero. His program is extremely detailed and easy to follow as long as you follow it. Dr. O is a no nonsense Dr though- he will tell you how it is. I chose to follow the program by the book. My surgery date came, I was home within 24 hours and on the way to recovery. I had little to no pain post surgery (I worked out everyday for 30 days prior to surgery). I highly recommend Dr. O and his bariatric program!!!!

Dr. O has been nothing short of a savior to me. He was informative and made sure that I was fully aware of the procedure options and potential risks. The bariatric progam at Atlanticare is top notch. I felt fully prepared for my surgery. Recovery was quick- virtually no pain within 24-48 hours of surgery (although this isnt typical) but I followed his instructions to the T. Follow the instructions that are laid out for you- if you dont then it will be difficult.

Dr. O is a caring and compassionate surgeon witha good sense of humor. He makes you feel at ease at your office visits and answers all of your questions to your satifaction in easy to understand language. While in the hospital after surgery he checks up on you everyday and makes sure you are getting the best care that the hospital provides.

I had gastric sleeve done several months ago by Dr.O. His job is to assess you for surgery, provide you the tools you need to succeed, this should be a positive experience. Instead he will berate you because you are obese, he already knows you have lower self esteem and NEED this surgery. If you are one of thr many to complain about it, dont expect an apology, staff will not apologize for his treatment. They will turn the situation on you and make it as if you deserved it. BEWARE!

Great doctor with a great sense of humor who really cares. Some people may say he's rough, but the truth is he gets upset when you don't follow doctor's orders. He tells you these things to make sure you're int he best health and wants to to be as well as possible. This guy changed my life....saved my life and I can't recommend him enough.
in Nashville, TN |
Dr. Onopchenko delivers a caring and patient spiel in promotion of his gastric bypass and gastric sleeve surgery history. On the first visit he will answer all your questions, spend as much time as you need to feel comfortable to proceed with the surgery process. After you are hooked his true colors show. He is condescending, uncaring and shows this in his unprofessional bedside manner in the visits thereafter. Please please please search him on google for other reviews!

Dr O is awesome! He gave me the tools and empowered me to change my life and I took it from there. Bypass 8 years ago and I'm maintaining my 125 lb loss. I'm extremely active now and love to run/walk 5k all the time. I believe I've added many years to my life. Thanks Dr O!!!!
