Robert L Richard
I chose him (well, the practice) because they don't seem to be the type that just slap a band on and send you out the door. They seem to be interested in the well being of their patients. They make you do a couple of things that some other doctors may not require (3 hour class, 3 hour psych eval, dietician appt, consult, you have to attend at least one group meeting pre op, etc). They really strive to have successful patients. Both of the doctors were very blunt about complications, there error rate (which they've had no in surgery complications thus far for lap band, which is what I'm getting). I'll update more post op. >>>> I had surgery on 1/22/09. Dr. Richard was awesome. He has an amazing attitude. He's so positive, cheerful, helpful, and very clear with his descriptions of things. I wouldn't chose another surgeon if I had the chance.>>> 2/26 I would just like to add that the staff at Obesity Solutions is awesome. They were great about answering my questions while I was going through all of the pre op hoops, they have always promptly returned my calls whenever I've had to leave messages. >>> 4/27 Just a little update to say that I am still 100% satisfied with everything. I have reached perfect restriction and have had no issues post op. Dr. Richard, Chris (his PA), and all of his staff are just perfect. Whenever I call with a question, I don't have to wait 1-2 days to get an answer. I almost always just have to hold on for a few minutes to get an answer. Followup appointments are always smooth. I'm not left in the waiting room or treatment room for an unreasonable amount of time. The nurse (I've always seen the same one) is super friendly, helpful, and positive. I've never left the office with a bad taste in my mouth, and that says a lot considering how many times I've been to the office in the last 8 months.
