Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Valentine "As a bariatric and general surgeon, I believe patients are happiest when they are healthy. From a surgical standpoint, I believe the best practice is to cure disease. Fixing the core problem allows the patient to thrive. I also believe patients need to be active decision makers and partners in their care. Care is one area I pride myself and my staff on; from the front desk through to surgical excellence you will know you are cared for-not only as a patient but as an individual as well."

Dr. Valentine is an awesome surgeon! He is kind, understanding and very talented. If I ever need a surgery that he does, he is my first choice. I would recommend him to anyone who needed an excellent, skilled and caring surgeon. I would trust anything he says, without question.
