Malcolm Robinson, M.D.
My first impression was he is very nices person answer all my question. Dr. Robinson really cares about his patients . He sat down and talk to me about the risks and the benerfit of the wls. I dont feel rush at all the staff was kind too. Jennifer is his sercetary and she call me back everytime I left a messages.I talk to her about a surgery date but she needed my file first and it was not there so she said she will call me back when she gets them and she did first thing the next morning with my surgery date. I like the fact that they follow your prograss for 5 or more year. I would rate Dr. Robinson and his staff A+ +.

The visit wiht Dr. Robinson went well, I was seen on time and asks alot of questions. Which was good cause you need every detail covered when it comes to surgery. He also told me to lose 25-30 pound before surgery. I am 282 and 5'3. I was 280 I don't know how I gained 2pd I really need to start watching my weight better. He was very nice to me. I feel very comfortable with him as my surgeon.

I got a call from jennifer which is his secratery to make an appointment to get my psych evaluation its the 13 of this month. Actully most of my appointment is this month. My upper GI is the 21 and I see the nutritionist later that day. I have a ultersound on the 24. I have to go to my supervised diet program on the 22. Its required for me to do a 6 month supervised diet program for the insurance in order to have the gastric bypass approved. This is my second month 4 more to go. I see my pcp on Jan 11 2007 to get my referral. Then I see Dr. Robinson on Jan 29 2007 at 1:30 to set a date for surgery. I will be finish with my supervised diet program on March 14 2007. Then they will submitt my paper work and wait for the approval. I call ahead of time to make sure that mass health covers it they do. The lady I was talking to told me just submitt all of the requirement and there shouldn't be any problem. I was also talking to some people who have the same insurance and they really never had any problems getting approved am not worried at all. I just want to get the surgery now. Pray for me in hope that every thing goes well.

I hated the tube in my nose they took it out in the morning at 7am, I was thanking god for that cause the tube is in your throat for your nose and it made me sick when I talk.
