Dr Bledsoe and his staff are the most caring group of people you could ask for. They take the time to get to know you and make you comfortable with every part of the process. I had gastric sleeve in 2017 at Arkansas heart hospital performed by Dr. Bledsoe. His bedside manner is excellent. As well as the staff. I've lost over 130lbs in 1 1/2yrs. Thanks to the follow up care he and his team provide! You wont regret choosing Dr. B.

I would highly recommend Dr. Bledsoe. My wife had gastric sleeve surgery in Jan 2018. Before scheduling the surgery Dr.Bledsoe and his staff met with us and explained everything we needed to know about the surgery. On the morning of surgery before my wife left to be taken to the operating room Dr. Bledsoe came and asked if we could pray together. My wife, her two grown kids, Dr. Bledsoe and I held hands as he prayed for the surgery. Dr. Bledsoe and his staff have always answered all questions.

I cannot say enough kind words for Dr. Bledsoe. I consider him the best doctor I've gone to and I have been seen by several. He is the best in helping his patients succeed in their journeys to lose weight. Anyone looking to shed pounds would never go wrong with this wonderful doctor and his staff. I really felt like they were part of my family after my surgery. He is the best !!!!

It was AWESOME, the most important thing is he will not perform surgery on you without having PRAYER first & he has compassion for his patients, etc.

I was very nervous about my wife having a gastric sleeve. From the nurses who admitted her all the way to the nurses who cared for her overnight, were absolutely phenomenal. The best part is how professional Dr Bledsoe is. He came into pre-op and asked if three of us could pray together. We prayed and he sent her to the operation room. Within minutes he came out to give me an update and in less than 45 minutes the operation was complete. We are both very happy with the work and professionalism!

AWESOME, WONDERFUL, AMAZING AND OUTSTANDING!!! Dr. Bledsoe performed my gastric bypass back in April of 2014. He was very caring from start to finish. He made sure that I understood the ins-and-outs of the procedure, the major lifestyle change and the ramifications that I would encounter if I did not follow his thorough instructions. He has been there for me every step of the way. On the day of surgery, he came to my bedside with a desire to pray for me before he began. At that very moment, I kn
