Stephen G. Boyce
Dr. Boyce is an awesome doctor! The staff is friendly and helpful. I have no complaints about Dr. Boyce, as-far-as what I like least about him. Our office is big on aftercare and we belong in a \"club\" where we are offered a nutritionist, excercise physiologist and 24 on call nursing. I was well informed of risks in a 4 hour class where we could ask questions freely. There, we were again coached on nutrition, excercise and other aspects of the surgery and what to expect afterwards. We were given a manual to refer to when we had questions. Dr. Boyce's surgical competence is excellent. I was able to bend over the day after surgery and walk without real discomfort. Pain meds were not necessary upon returning home from the hospital. I atribute this to his procedures and gentleness during the surgery. I rate Dr. Boyce at the highest rating possible and all of my friends, that had surgery with him, do as well.

Always a new diet or trial medicine. I was always ashamed...or different. It didn't seem to matter that I had a kind loving heart, I just never was comfortable being morbidly obese. If just one more doctor told me I was overweight, I think...
