I was so nervous about having the sleeve because of prior surgeries, (6) on the abdomen and there were a lot of adhesions. Dr. Cywes assured me that he was entereing w/ caution and if he was not able to perform the procedure he would close me up. The surgery was a success and the trust and faith I had in Dr. Cywes paid off!!!!!! I love his direct approach, he doesn't beat around the bush!
