Insurance left me withbfew options. Before surgery I saw him once where he read a flip chart w he th redundant info from the webinar I had watched. Day of surgery 3 hours late. No explanation. No care in the world. Beside manner is the worst. Spent 3 days in the hospital, saw him a total of 8 minutes. Morning check ins went like this..."did you drink enough water? " "No, I'm in so muh pain it hurts to swallow" "Alright, not going home today, see ya tomorrow." Then he left till the next day.

Dr. Dyer did my gastric by-pass in June, 2015 and I weighed in at 278 lbs at 5' 10". As of Jan 2017 I have lost 155 lbs, am a size 4 (first time ever!) and have a normal BMI, no longer diabetic and no more meds . Not only is Dr. Dyer a miracle worker but the program that he provides really works. You can not fail with this team as your support system. With a dietitian and exercise physiologist at your disposal whenever you need them - that is the team you want on your side!

I would have loved to try and see Dr. Dyer for a consult to see if pursuing Bariatric Surgery was the right decision for me but this office won't even schedule a consult visit until you are approved for the surgery. When I called and spoke with Holly I stated that I would like to come in for the consult to even see if the surgery was something I wanted to pursue. I work in a specialty practice myself and never have I heard that you can't have the consult before the surgery is approved.
