I have never had a doctor yell at me until Dr Patching. He has a real short fuse!

I am 4 months out from my Vertical Sleeve procedure. I just wanted to thank Dr. Patching for educating me and staying on top of me and my habits and let me know what I needed to change! Without his perseverance, I would not be down 70 lbs and going strong! A lot of what he had to say, I didn't want to hear. But without him drilling it into me, I would not be successful! Thank you Dr. Patching, for loving us enough that you don't want to see us fail. Do not change a thing!

I just had gastric bypass two weeks ago. I feel great and it was relatively painless with no side effects. He was very encouraging and professional. I think my rapid recovery is related to how skillful this physician is. I am very pleased with the results of this procedure.

My experience with Dr. Patching was really great! Super Professional. Dr. Patching took time with me and let me ask any and every question I could possible have about Bariatric Surgery. I felt cared for and have complete trust in his abilities as a surgeon. I didn't feel like just a number as is often the case with busy doctor's. In fact all of the hospital staff sings his praises during the process. I highly recommend him if you are considering Bariatric Surgery.
