Clifford Deveney, M.D.
Dr. Clifford Deveney is taking me on to do my revision surgery. He seems very knowledgable. More to follow after I have my revision.rnrnFirst surgery first impression: Dr. Robert Rutledge is very knowledgable and easy to talk to. He and his staff work very hard to ensure every patient has their questions answered. Dr. Rutledge was good about going over our aftercare requirements. His manual he provides patients is invaluable as we navigate the various stages post surgery. I would say his surgical competence is superior, and his bedside manner is great too, while in the hospital. I started out very happy with my experience with Dr. Rutledge, but over time as I developed complications, my impression of him changed. At six months out I had surpassed my goal and continued to lose. I went to Las Vegas to talk to him about how to stop the weight loss. He blew me off, in person. And since that time he has pretty much ignored my communication with him except to send me e-mails that state \"you need a revision.\" He has ignored two fax requests, and two phone calls urging him to comply with my fax requests to send my records to my PCP. It looks like I will need a revision, and I sure don't trust Dr. Rutledge again, as I believe the reason for my excessive weight loss was taking too large of a bypass on me for the amount of weight I needed to lose. I would caution anyone using him to consider that his post-op patient care for patients with complications is next to non-existant. While I believe Dr. Rutledge does a fine job with his new patients, and those immediately following surgery, my experience of his post-op care for patients with complications has not been great. I also question his judgment when determining the length of intestine to bypass in his lightweight patients. This has just been my personal experience and is no reflection on what other patients of his may think.rn

Hi, I'm a 43 year old single mother of two and I'm ready to stop losing at the losing game. I have fought my weight my whole life. I've tried just about every diet out there, only to lose and then gain back more than before. I have several co-morbidities that if left unchecked would cause me problems later and probably cut short my life. I want to be healthier and not be on so many medicines.
