Andrew DeWitt, M.D.
First impression: Excellent. Caring, patient with questions, very frank about risks. Emphasizes aftercare for best chance of success. Open about his personal statistics with complications/mortality. At some appointments there was a very long wait. I assume this is a combination of overbooking and a complicated and sometimes unpredictable general internal surgery schedule. In the year I have been seeing him, the wait time has been reduced greatly, even running ahead. Regardless, HE'S WORTH THE WAIT.
Impression over time? Still excellent. Very thorough and careful. Very patient and caring, with a great sense of humor.
Office staff: Remarkable! Excellent!
Like least? Sometimes the wait is a pain, but I see that as a hazard of a busy general surgical practice. He's not running a WLS mill, that's for sure!
What should future patients know: You're in good hands with DeWitt & his staff.
Aftercare: Strongly emphasized! Carraway has a bariatric coordinator who works closely with DeWitt's patients, and they have support meetings monthly in addition to other activities and online contact.
How did he address risks: He was open & frank about the risks, nothing sugar coated, both in general, and particular to my health & family history.
Overall rating: 10+++!
Surgical Competence or Bedside Manner Better? Both equally great.

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
Overweight since childhood. First diet in 5th grade. Mother put me on all her diets thru jr & high school - Atkins, Cabbage Soup, Stewardess Diet, Military Diet, Grapefruit Diet, Scarsdale, and Weight Watchers several times. Tried it ALL. Lost a little, then gained it back plus. I also went thru an outpatient eating disorder program. Overeaters Anonymous saved my life initially, helping me get out of compulsive overeating. Once I stopped the compulsive overeating, tho, I was still 200 lbs overweight, and pain & mobility probs made effective exercise impossible.
