Those who undergo surgery routinely report that the surgery changed their lives. They feel better, they're more healthy and active, and they're not limited by their disease. Not only do they have more life, they have better life. I can't think of any area in medicine where a doctor is as privileged to be part of such a positively life altering endeavor as in bariatric surgery." –Dr. Paulk Dr. Paulk is married with three children. Outside of work, he coaches his son's baseball team, participates in several road and mountain bike races each year, and is an avid skier. He is fluent in Italian and enjoys camping and going to Lake Powell with his family."
