Vadim Sherman MD, FRCSC
Baylor College of medicine offers a Comprehensive Bariatric Program and they hold free information sessions every month. This was where I first met Dr. Sherman. He spoke to the group about the 2 bariatric procedures they offer, the RNY and the Lapband. rnrn Together with Dr. Sweeney, Dr. Sherman exudes knowledge a vast knowledge about these procedures and answered every question that was thrown their way with ease and confidence. They gave the group pamhlets to take home, and encourage everybody to research and ask questions before committing to these procedures that is life-altering, as they sressed out.rnrn Thier comprehensive bariatric program is really well thought out. Monica, their coordinator really follows through with insurance and paperwork, that made me feel I had a guradian angel watching over me, and making sure that this happens for me. She hounded the insurance company for me, and kept me updated on everything that was going on. rnrn Sabrina, their nutritionist, and Rose, their nurse practitioner, were also very knowledgeable about the procedures and guided me really with the preop stuff I haad to deal with. Sabrina was open to receiveing questions via email and even responded to my call of plea during the 1st few days of my preop liquid diet at late in the afternoon, while she was at another state! Talk about dedication to their work.rnrn My actual meeting with Dr. Sherman was also full of information. He really delved deep into and stressed the importance of their aftercare program and discussed in detail what i wil lbe expecting at 1 week one through 5 yrs out. He also addressed the risks of surgery in detail.rnrn He met with me again the day of surgery, and just gave me the reassurance I needed to hear that everything iwill be all right and that he will take care of me. Post op, I expected fellows or residents to check in on me. No! Dr. sherman came by to visit, 2 times, even 3 times a day while I was at the hospital, reviewing my vitals, and labs, and always reassuring me that everythings moving on track. rnrn overall, Dr. Sherman is a great surgeon, knowledgeable in his craft, and caring, approachable, compassionate, and one who will really make you feel at ease while talking to him. He has a great bedside manner. These traits are important so a patient will not feel threatened to ask questions and voice concerns. The fact that he's cute does not hurt at all either ; )
