My wife had gastric bypass a year ago and ended up getting pregnant 12 weeks post op. When we went in for her yearly checkup we had our 3 month old son with us. He made us feel like we were the preachers kids having a baby out of wedlock, Ie. talking down to us about having him before we were supposed to try. My wife replied, “well he’s healthy, and I’m healthy, so let’s move on and talk about what I’m supposed to do from here” and he would not move past it. Continuing to make us feel ashamed.

Dr. Cahill performed my Gastric Sleeve surgery and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. He and his staff take care of you as though you were family. They always take the time to answer any questions you may have and get you through the insurance process with ease. If you're thinking about having a bariatric procedure done then you won't be disappointed if you select Dr. Cahill!
