Paul Cirangle (COE)
My first impression of Dr. C was that of confidence. He is very \"matter of fact\" & professional, and that's a good thing. He doesn't seem to have much of a sense of humor, but I didn't go to him for his wit (which I suspects he hides). I wanted his surgical skills and expertise, which he has in abundance.rnrnI was impressed that Dr. C runs his own New Patient meetings. He is a VERY busy man! I've seen other Drs who have staff that run the meetings and answer questions, but it was even better to ask the Dr direct! That really helped my confidence level as a person seeking info about WLS.rnrnAnother thing that I REALLY like is that you can contact one of the surgeons 24/7 if you have an emergency. I am too far away to visit them if there is an urgent problem, but I know that I can contact them and they can speak with the local Dr. if necessary. Quite a comfort to me!rnrnLapSF (Dr. C's practice) has wonderful emphesis on aftercare for all surgical procedures. He has support meetings available, plus a web site devoted to support and tracking of progress, and of course there is the office staff during business hours. LapSF has a higher-than-average sucess rate with WLS, and I think it's due to experience and aftercare.rnrnHis office staff is great once you are a patient. They are extremly busy and put priority on current patients rather than on new patients. I feel this is appropriate, although frustrating at first.rnrnOverall, I would highly recommend Dr. Cirangle for his expertise. I was self-pay, and feel he was worth the price. His bedside manner is straight-forward and polite. And again, I'd rather have the surgical expertise than a fun sense of humor.
