in Palm City, FL |
Dr Follwell is extremely knowledgeable while also caring. He performed emergency surgery on me and I've been very impressed. I highly recommend him
in Port Saint Lucie, FL |
I would highly recommend Dr. Follwell. He performed my VSG surgery and I am very happy with his care and the results. He gave his full attention at every appointment and answered every question to my complete satisfaction. His office staff is friendly and professional. I did not have to wait long at my appointments. I received a prompt response when I emailed his office with a post op question. He is a surgeon with the Martin Memorial Bariatric Program, which I highly recommend as well.
