×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Phillip Hornbostel, MD?
I have every confidence in Dr. Hornbostel and his Bariatric Team after having him perform my Gastric Bypass this past September. Prior to selecting him for Bariatric Surgery, I did my research and consulted with National Bariatric Accrediting Agencies and discovered the benefits of his experience coupled with a Nationally Certified Bariatric Treatment Center
