Thomas Beetel, M.D.
25Aug05: What can I say about Dr. Beetel? He is a HUNK ... he is a miracle worker ... he is fantastic! From the beginning, he took the time to explain each leg of my journey and I never felt that I was bugging him or annoying him with my questions. He was able to take this old tired body that had already had a previous abdominal surgery (gall bladder removal in 1966) leaving scar tissue, adhesions and a big ole scar and perform laparoscopic WLS on it with no complications! In addition, I have a history of hypertension; hyperthyroidism (Graves Disease); afib flutter; sleep apnea & phlebitis of the lower extremeties. All of those co-morbidities were addressed and precautions were taken to insure my safety and well-being. My surgery was on Thursday morning, July 21st and I was home by Saturday afternoon, July 23rd!!! And I felt wonderful. I had very little pain (high tolerance?) and good energy and was back to my office in four weeks. I would recommend RSA to ANYONE for WLS. The whole program is professionally coordinated with a personal touch. The Support Group is amazing! I am extremely happy that I chose RSA and Dr. Beetel for my WLS.
Now, as for Reading Hospital ... I was NOT impressed. It appeared, in my opinion, that the floor nurses were overworked and understaffed. I don't believe they are incompetent ... just very stressed! I'm sure that someone else may have a different opinion, but for what it's worth, this is mine.
