Sheila K. Partridge, M.D.
I'm writing this review as I'm nearing my 1 year post op from having a Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy with Dr. Partridge and the Center for Weight Loss Team at NWH.
What can I say....? She saved my life.
When I decided weight loss surgery was the right decision for me, I did a lot of research. With the help of my primary care doctor, I found Dr. Partridge and feel so blessed to have met her and to have her as my surgeon.
I had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy on 04/12/12 and feel amazing.
Prior to my actual surgery date, I had several appointments with Dr. Partridge and the staff. ALL of my experience has been nothing but 100% positive. These people care, and by the way... they know what they are doing.
I found Dr. Partridge to be so thorough in her explanations. I asked tons of questions (even down to my bougie size) and she spent time with me, explained everything, so that when surgery day was here I was completely prepared.
My surgery went great. In fact, I was amazed at how fantastic I felt. AND - I was able to have a "single incision" gastric sleeve which, in my opinion, speaks high of her skills as a surgeon.
The follow up post op has exceeded my expectations. Dr. Partridge makes rounds twice daily during your hospital stay and is available after hours should you need her.
I had some additional surgery months later and I was so fortunate that Dr. Partridge was able to be my surgeon again. (I had my gallbladder out and a hernia repair. NOTE: I do not consider this a complication from surgery, rather, something that came up a result of rapid weight loss). Again, my experience both pre and post op was fantastic.
Next week I am going to see Dr. Partridge for my 1 year follow up appointment and I've never been so excited to go to the Dr's office before!
Dr Partridge has been truly remarkable pre and post op. She knows her stuff and I am lucky to have her as my surgeon. This is a life long relationship and I know she and the rest of the staff at the Center for Weight Loss will be there for me.
I feel like I've been given a second chance and I'm so grateful to them.
My experience has been life changing.......for the better.
