Surgeon: William O'Malley, M.D.
My first impression of Dr. O'Malley was a very good one that has not changed and I am now 2 days away from being 9 weeks post-op and I have already lost 45 pounds. Everyone at Highland Hospital was very knowledgable about my surgery (laparoscopic RNY) and concerned about my pain control as well as keepin me free from infection. Before I had the surgery, Dr. O'Malley was very thorough in explaining the procedure to me from beginning to end. He even went as far as drawing a diagram of how my digestive system was at the time and how it would be post-op. I received extensive patient teaching during my hospital stay. Dr. O'Malley's office staff is also very knowledgable about the surgery and what steps should be taken before the surgery and what precautions to take after the surgery. I was provided with a different menu at each post-op visit and was able to ask any questions that I could possibly think of. I also called the office with questions between office visits. I had no complications during or after my surgery and I am very grateful to Dr. O'Malley for a job well done - before, during, and after. If I had to rate the "DOC" on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being most satisfied, Dr. O'Malley would definitely receive a 10+. I am a healthcare professional and I must admit, I was a bit nervous before my surgery especially having heard the "horror stories" regarding the surgery but I am so glad that I did not let that discourage me and neither should you!!!
I had no problems with the insurance company because I had tried just about every other alternative.
