I was/am very pleased I chose Richard to do my surgery. He listens and is concerned. He follows up and is very professional. I would recommend him.
He is a bariatric surgeon for Counties Manukau DHB in Auckland as well as having a private practice. His preference is to do the sleeve, but he listens to one's concerns and carefully explains his rationale.
I had no problems with the surgery or the care. He explains the risks carefully.
Things moved quickly for me and I saw him twice before surgery and the dietician once. Twice in hospital post-surgery and dietician once and physiotherapist twice as well. There is not a very structured aftercare programme:- appointment to see him at about 2-3 weeks and 6 weeks after that. Dietician at about 6 weeks. But as everything seems to be going smoothly, I don't know how often I will see him going forward. He didn't refer me to the psychologist nor is there a support group organised through his practice... but he didn't feel I needed to see the psychologist and I agree.
Surgical competence and bedside manner are great. Very impressed with him and everyone that works with him.
