Ervin Denham III, M.D.
First impression was caring and professional. That impression never changed, although post-op there was a definite sense of humor that was not noted pre-op.
I find the office staff to be extraordinarily helpful and willing to respond as quickly as they can, even (perhaps especially?) to paranoia questions. I have heard that some people have quarrels with the no-nonsense attitude of the staff, but I'd rather have the straight story from the start than having things glossed over, so I'm very happy with them.
Future patients should know that Dr. Denham does the surgery, but aftercare is provided (unless it involves further surgery or surgical complications) by nurse practitioners and dieticians. The system works well for me.
Aftercare is hugely emphasized - regular visits, regular data checks, monthly education groups, reminders that, forever, if you regain as little as 8 pounds to come in for assistance. The intent is to help you lose and KEEP IT OFF.
Risks of surgery were delineated several times, including those which are extremely minimal. Search online for complaints or problems revealed only that some people didn't like the office staff - no complaints about Dr. Denham or any of his surgeries.
Overall, superb program. I found both surgical competence and bedside manner to be excellent. The only quibble I have is that it is difficult to schedule appointments - he's good enough to be extremely busy!
