Robert Read, M.D.
Dr Read and the Samaritan Bariatric Team (Susan, Bobbie, Kim, Denise) have been fantastic to work with. The orientation programs (open forum/general information, Dr Read's presentation of the procedure/risks/etc) are well organized and provide repeated opportunities for anyone's questions to be answered. The office staff is always available for questions, no matter how random, and respond to phone messages promptly. The program has a very strong emphasis on after care including annual (and obviously more frequent in the first year) labs and follow-ups, nutritional counsel, and monthly support group meetings. My only frustration has been delays and late running appointments... Dr Read tends to get pulled in many directions between two offices and in-hospital duties and his appointment schedule tends to feel that strain. Dr Read is not going to mince words with you... you will get the straight story with no hesitation to lay it on the line... so be prepared to be held accountable for your part of this process... ultimately it will be all about your discipline and he is going to make sure that you know everything possible before he cuts you loose.
