Roc W. Bauman, MD, FACS,FASMBS
He's very nice, very up front about what this surgery involves, what your choices are for surgery, and that it is your decision. I met him first a couple of years ago and my impression has not changed about him. His office staff is very nice, very well educated about this whole process and your requirements. His waiting room is very comfortable, and seats are large to accommodate obese patients -- a nice touch! A lot of emphasis is placed on the importance of lifelong lifestyle choices that have to be made for this WLS to be successful. There is a lot of postop care required by him, and that is stressed at your first presurgical consult. Risks of surgery are plainly stated over and over again, each time death being one of the risks stated. I would rate him a 10 on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best. I think he is both competent surgically and has a good bedside manner with patients. Now ... don't ask me as a nurse how I feel, because my opinion of surgeons in general is not real high on that side of things (just a hazard of the job...lol). Since I have worked for the hospital he practices at and know several nurses on that unit, I know he can be a bit uptight. But since he has a zero mortality rate, I don't mind him being uptight with nursing staff and keeping his patients safe.

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I suffer from depression and I'm a stress eater. I got to the point this last year that I refused to try to purchase more clothing because it was such a humiliating experience.
