Charles A. Svendsen, M.D.
My first impression of Dr. Svendsen was that he was friendly and made me laugh, so he made me feel comfortable right away. I didn't really have many questions about the procedure, but he asked again and again if I had any. Since I'm a nurse, I felt that I really understood the procedure going into it... But for a lay person, I'm just saying it seems that he would be very patient and thorough in answering questions if needed. Dr. Svendsen was recommended to me by my friend Heather from work, who had her surgery just a couple weeks before I did. She knew other people he had operated on, and she had heard that he was the best. Dr. Svendsen shared with me that his complication rate was much lower than the national average. Methodist hospital is a \"center of excellence\" for bariatric surgery. I felt very confident. Even though I didn't have many questions, he thoroughly addressed the risks of surgery, and he also discussed with me in detail the game plan for surgery that considered my health history. I would recommend him to anyone considering bariatric surgery. He does a lot of these surgeries every year and is truly a specialist in this field.
