What People Say About Dr. Robert Marvin, MD

I had the scope. I was lethargic and beyond swollen when pushed out of the surgical facility. Dr Marvin never checked on me. Called his office and was told my symptoms were common. I waited until after hours so I could get his AS and speak to him. Went to ER and had an emergency chest tube put in. Bilateral pneumothorax. Transferred to cardio pulmonary hospital. He punctured my thoracic cavity. I lost weight due to PTSD after almost dying. Gained it right back as it didn’t work. Think twice.

Answered all of my questions and concerns. I was able to do my initial consultation over the phone because I lived out of state. Had my face to face consult on Thursday, procedure on Friday, and follow up on Monday. He was very competitively priced because the procedure I had was not covered by insurance. (Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty). I lost 9 pounds so far and I am on post op day 6!

I had my gastric sleeve two years ago and lost 102 lbs in year and have been able to keep it off. Dr. Marvin was very compassionate pre-surgery and wanted to ensure I understood every detail of what I was going to go through. I felt comfortable in asking questons and never felt "dumb" for asking so many. He has been encouraging about my results and wants to ensure I stay on the road to good heath. His team ensures I have the tools needed to maintain my goals acheived.

I had gastric sleeve surgery in December of 2016. Dr. Marvin did a great job. He has a caring team that works with you and your insurance to begin the process. Post surgery, his office has been a great resource for my changing body. Dr. Marvin has a good bedside manner and wants to make sure you are healing properly and adjusting in a healthy way.
