Alexander D. Abkin, M.D., F.A.C.S
My first impression of Dr. Abkin was quite favorable. He must do hundreds of orientation sessions, but he was fully involved and very patient with questions. One on one, he is very good at explaining the process and very knowledgable, even for obscure questions. rnrnHis office staff is very competent and responsive. I've been particularly impressed by the insurance person, Karla.rnrnThe surgery process and aftercare are very well thought out. All bases are covered in a format that is easy to follow and very supportive.rnrnTo me, surgical competence is paramount and Dr. Abkin certainly has that. As an added bonus, his personality and style are also top notch. On a scale of 1-10, I'm thinking Dr. Abkin is an easy 10.

I'm 53 yrs old; married to my best friend; mom to one son, step mom to 2 sons; grandmother to 6, with 3 more on the way. Weight has been an issue for me all of my adult life, but has gotten really out of control in the past 10 years. For a long time it was mostly just troubling to my vanity, but now it's compromising my health and quality of life. I've considered WLS for about 2 years and finally gathered up the courage to move forward with it. Since I assumed I would have to pay out of pocket, it came as a pleasant surprise that my insurance policy would cover it. My surgury date is 7/28 for gastric bypass.
I know that this is going to be hard work, but for the first time in years I'm feeling optimistic about getting to a normal size and staying there. I can't wait to get this show on the road!
