What People Say About Dr. Michael Hovey, MD
Reply
Had bariatric surgery in November 2016 with wonderful results. The video that Dr Hovey made with information about the types of bariatric surgery was very helpful when it came time to make the decision. Pre-surgery education was also very helpful to prepare before and after the surgery and took the guess work out of what I could expect. He has excellent bedside manner and he and his staff are a pleasure to deal with. Follow-up appointments were timely and helpful.

I have had two surgical procedures performed by Dr Hovey. The pre-op education was very good-I knew what to expect going in, and both operations were very successful. I feel in good hands with Dr Hovey
