Dr Acheson performed my surgery October 30th of this year, I couldn't have asked for a better doctor. He spends as much time as needed and never acts rushed. He's very easy to talk to. I would recommend dr. Acheson 100%
HIGHLY recommend Dr Acheson. Very nice staff and he is very attentive and listens to your concerns.
Dr. Acheson was great to work with. Was very personable and easy to talk with. I felt very comfortable with him and would use him in the future if needed.

Dr. Acheson performed bariatric sleeve surgery on me six days ago, and I cannot believe that I am doing so well. I believe it is all due to the Dr. Acheson's expert surgery skills, his positive attitude that I needed so much,, and his sweet caring manner. He is the best doctor I have ever had, and I would highly recommend him to be your doctor. He is the only doctor in town that will ever do surgery on me in the future if I need one.

Dr. Acheson performed the Gastric Sleeve on me in January 2015. He did a fantastic job and I healed exceptionally well. I have since lost over 130lbs. I have recommended several friends to him that have had great success as well. He is caring, listens to you, is very knowledgeable and a GREAT motivator! I wouldn't have surgery done by anyone else!! He gave me my life back.

Dr. Acheson performed bariatric surgery on my recently and I cannot remember having a more upbeat, pleasant and professional medical provider. He is highly skilled and knowledgeable, and my surgery was an overwhelming success, to the point that I returned to work five days after my surgery with no pain and great results. I highly recommend Dr. Acheson.

Met him when I was in ICU at St. David's North. I had a necrotic small bowel obstruction. He believes in very good pain control both pre-surgery and post-surgery. NEVER had a moment pain!!! Very kind, professional and always had a warm, caring smile and manner. He's is THE ONLY Surgeon who I would EVER allow to touch me here in Austin!!! And an extra PLUS, he is VERY easy on the EYES, too!!!

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
