      He is warm, caring and an excellent Surgeon. Went into St. David's North near death and he literally saved my life. He has a gentle manner and a sincere attitude that immediately puts you at ease. Would never allow any other Surgeon except Dr. Acheson to ever do surgery on me here in Austin. I was in the Health Care Field for many years and seen it all from "the inside." He is truly the best!!!

      Dr. Acheson is dangerous. He performed a bariatric revision surgery on me in December, 2015, and he said he "had done a couple" before. Following surgery, I had no change to my anatomy and it was clear that Dr. Acheson did not have enough experience with this surgery to perform it. Weight loss surgery is very manageable, but please find other doctors outside of the Southwest Bariatric Group or the Capital Surgeons group that are more capable. Do you want success, or do you want them to pract

      Why Does Experience Matter?
