We appreciate the feedback. Bariatric surgery comes with a multitude of steps to ensure patients are prepared for surgery. Dr. Duncan sees every patient prior to the day of surgery and we accommodate all requests for meetings with him outside of the standard pre-surgical visits. The experience had thus far is conducive with the early to midway point of the process. Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns, we are here to help. Best wishes.
