Dr. Throop was a great surgeon and he did all that he could to make me comfortable and informed!!! I would describe his office staff (Evansville Surgical Associates) as VERY BUSY!!! The lady that I dealt with in billing was very rude to me and I had to be rude right back to her for her to listen to me. After that she was the nicest women, funny how pointing out someone's mistakes makes them nicer! The people at St. Mary's Bariatric Center, on the other hand, are the nicest people in the world!!!! Everyone at that office knows you by name and everything that's going on with you personally!! I have never been to a Dr.'s office were the staff was so friendly and I really appreciate that!!! I used to dread going to the Dr. but now I love it because everyone there is so very nice!!! They go out of their way to be nice and to do whatever you ask of them without so much as a sigh!! Aftercare is a big part of WLS for Dr. Throop. I have appt.s at 10 days, 3 weeks, and 1 month scheduled and then I think it's 3 mos. and 6 mos. I also have to go to monthly support group meetings(they are required). Dr. Throop went over the risks of WLS in grave detail with me and my family and answered any questions that we had. I would rate Dr. Throop, on a 1-10 scale, a 9, he wouldv'e gotten a 10 but when I went in for my 10 day visit I told him about a pain that had not previously been there and he didn't even look at it or ask me any questions and it still hurts and I'm 1 month post-op now!! I think that surgical compliance and bedside manner are both great qualities for a surgeon to have!!!

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I have been on so many diets and i would loose 10 or 20 lbs and then gain all of that back and more. I am only 23 yrs old and i cant have children right now because of my weight! I haven't been able to ride a ride in yrs, i have broken my fair share of furniture and been starred at and teased because of my weight! My own father and brother-in law just flat out refuse to like me and go out of their way to be hateful to me because of my weight!!!
