Alexander D. Abkin, M.D., F.A.C.S
I guess divine intervention led me to Dr. Abkin. I way on my way with another surgeon when I found out that insurance would cover 0% because he was out of network.
I did my research on ObesityHelp and other forums and found Advanced Laporoscopic Surgeon's. Reading one review made me choose Dr. Abkin - a reader said she saw god in his eyes. That had a profound affect on me.
After seeing Dr's Bertha and Iannace for follow-ups in the hospital I now know that any of them would be an excellent choice for a surgeon. These doctors work as a team during the operation and it works out great.
Dr. Abkin is very professional and very smart. He has a very nice disposition and listens well to you. He's concerned about your needs and addresses all of them.
He explained all the risks / benefits of the surgery to me. His surgical competence and bedside manner are both great.
I would rate him a 10 out of 10.
If I had to do all this over again I would and I would choose Dr. Abkin again.
I am almost 2 month post op now and have had only 1 glitch, which was a small leak from one incision about 2 weeks post op. That was quickly addressed and just a faded memory already. I have lost 53 lbs since surgery in 56 days. What can be better than that!
I am now walking daily 45-60 minutes or more and am starting strength training tonight.
God bless Dr. Abkin along with doctors Bertha and Iannance.
