I came from Atlanta to see Dr Black . He is wonderful and has a great bedside manner. Explains everything and his staff is great. Best price for private pay gastric sleeve. Believe me, I've looked! Took care of my reflux and weight problem with one surgery!
Anniston, AL |
I was operated on by Dr Black on an emergency basis and afterward was told what was wrong. My condition did not change after the surgery which required an addition emergency surgery a week later because of complications of the first and that only fixed the problems of the first surgery. I was still left with my original condition 2 surgeries later finally going to a specialist to fix my original condition.

Had hiatal hernia with toupet nissens procedure done by Dr. Black. It was well worth the 2 hour drive from the south Atlanta area. I chose Dr. Black due to his experience and reputation and was impressed. His staff and the Stringfellow Hospital staff were wonderful. As I write this I am 4 weeks postop and am normal except I can't eat as much as I used to which is a good thing for my waist line.
