Where do I begin about Dr. Hamad or as I call her "My Gentle Giant" for the petite woman that she is. Dr. Hamad made it very comfortable for me to be around her. She was friendly but very business at hand. She wanted to do her best for me but expected me to do my part and do it well. She is very upfront and forward and to the point. But that is what I needed in a professional, someone that tells it all and leaves no stone unturned. It was not always easy to swallow, this is a hard decision to make and if you can get through the frankness and it still feels right then you know you are ready to make a decison. There are numberous testing to accomplish before surgery. I find this to be a benefit also. I wanted to know as much as possible about my body and health for Dr. Hamad before surgery. Her staff is very professional and friendly and eager to help you in any way. Just ask. The monthly support group they offer are very helpful also. The risk of surgery is explained to you in both a video and in person. There are always papers (before and after surgery) that go home with you that reinforce what was discussed with you at your visits. I find it to be a very organized caring system. I was totally ready for surgery before hand. My care at McGee's Woman Hospital was outstanding. The nursing staff is very caring and well educated about Gastric Bypass Surgery and took very good care of my needs. My health and safety were always thought of first. My aftercare program is very important to Dr. Hamad. It is all in writing what I needed to do and to keep my scheduled appointments. Between appointments I am only a phone call away from anything I need to know. The surgeon and her staff are very competent and the bedside manner is wonderful (but so was mine :-) ). I only get what I put into it and I kept an open mind as to what I wanted to acomplished for my health and my future. As of today, January 8th, 2006 I am doing great ! ! ! I will do what is necessary to continue on this path. I owe that to Dr. Hamad. She has treated me well and really cares about my outcome and so do I.
She did her part, now it is time for me to do my part and to do it well. Thank you Dr. Hamad and staff.
