I first came across the Live Life Again Center for Bariatrics through an online search. Their website is great but it is the testimonies and informative videos that really inspired me to move forward. I felt that Dr. David Kim was very understanding to the discrimination that overweight people endure day in day out. He was up front and was real about the procedures and what he expects from you as a patient. It made me nervous that I might not be able to \"live\" under those obligations not to Dr. Kim but to the surgery. Dr. Kim's staff Shelly in particular was very encouraging that it sounds harder than it really is. If we have lived a portion of our lives overweight at all and have survived the ridicule and looks then the requirements of the surgery after life is a drop in the bucket so to speak. The great thing about Dr. Kim's Practice is that they offer wonderful \"university classes\" to inform the patient all about their procedure and what they will need to do to be successful after surgery. The after care that is offered is wonderful too. There is plenty of support and they offer once a month support groups and they also offer get togethers for things such as playing the Wii or even just working out together. I would give Dr. Kim and his staff a 9 out of 10 rating just because of the treatment, information, and support that is offered alone. I personally feel that surgical competence trumps bedside manner however this is an emotional decision and change so therefore bedside manner carries a little more considering this choice. So even though I believe surgical competence trumps it, bedside manner is ONLY a fraction behind.
