Dr. Wagner was a phenomenal surgeon. I love the communication and his passion for his craft. I just had my surgery December 28 and I can't imagine having another surgeon on this journey to a healthier life.

I think Dr Wagner is not interested in your well being, but rather another surgery notch in his belt. I had the lap-band put in 4 years ago. I immediately noticed what looked like a hernia. He dismissed it. 2 years later due to complications I had the lap-band removed. Here I am now 2 years later about to have hernia surgery in the exact spot that the port was in. I think he messed up and did not admit it. Buyer beware.
