Derrick Martin, M.D.
When I first looked into weight loss surgery I was scheduled to see Dr. Fallang but because of insurance reasons I was then asked if I would mind seeing Dr. Martin. So of course I said, yes.
In June I went to the informational session that Dr. Fallang has and then I met with Dr. Martin in July 2001. I was so happy that I was given the opportunity to see Dr. Martin because he is truly a wonderful surgeon. He is so thorogh and caring and tells you everything about what your facing when you have this surgery.
The day I had surgery he talked to me before I was put to sleep and he came to see me that night, infact he saw me everyday I was in the hospital. I had my surgery on Mon. morning and went home Thurs. morning.
I did exactly what the dr. ordered and I am very happy with my weightloss. The only problem a year ago this spring I was put in the hospital with a internal hernia or so they thought. So I did follow up with Dr. Martin and he ran a bunch of tests but I put off following up with him and ended up having to have surgery that I needed to have in the summer due to my work schedule and that is where Dr. Curry came into the picture. Dr. Martin wasn't able to get me into until August and I needed surgery ASAP.
The only flaw to this was that I was one of Dr. Martin first patients and my records never got transfered from Dr. Fallangs office over to Dr. Martin's office. So my follow=ups haven't been exactly how they should have been. I have tried several times to get this taken care of buy to no avail. Dr. Fallangs office keeps telling me they sent them. So I kinda got lost in the shuffle.
I can't say enought about these two wonderful surgeons.
Dr. C. was my lifesaver. I'm 3yrs. post-op and even though Dr. C. wasn't my WLS Surgeon, he did repair an internal hernia this past summer on July 16th, 2004. He was the only one that truely cared enough to find out why I was having these severe attacks.
I can't express enough gratitude that I have for Dr. C. and his staff. He truely is an amazing Dr. and so caring and professional at what he does.
If anyone of you are looking for a more than qualified doctor, please don't hesitate to go and see Dr. C. You won't be disappointed, I assure you.
Thank you Dr. C.
