Dr. Steely is such a caring man and one of the best surgeons I've ever dealt with. His staff is so patient and caring. I developed tachycardia after surgery and he made it his #1 priority to get me taken care of by a cardiologist before their office closed for Christmas break. He is super polite and has excellent bedside manner. He emphasizes that the RNY is just a tool and it is up to me to determine how I use this tool. If anyone is thinking about having RNY, then I would definitely recommend Dr. Steely.

Excellent Dr, i just think im the patient that gives him the most headaches :). Excellent bedside manners and you are his number 1 priority.

Thank you Dr Steely.

Regardless of all my inital complications he has my well being at top intrest. He is sort of quiet, but when he speaks he speaks clear, with out all the medical terminology involved so i can understand what is going on with my care.

My first impression of him was he is very professional, and he seemed like a very good surgeron and doctor. Plus I have heard very good things about him which made me choose him. My impressions about him really didnt change except he is the kind of doctor who does not want to be woke up in the middle of the night lol. Which most people don't but he doesn't like it at all. His staff at the office are very nice and they don't rush you or make it seem like you are bothering them and they actually seem to take the time to listen to you. What paitents should know about him is that he is a very good doctor he knows what he is doing and does it very well.

Dr. Bolar is a skilled surgeon as attested by several of the hospital staff and former patients. He is a man of few words, but was very willing to answer any questions I had.rnrnHis post-surgery visits with me in the hospital were informative and caring, but brief, which was perfect for me. He came to see me early every morning--even Saturday and Sunday--so I didn't have to sit there all day wondering when he would arrive as I've had with other surgeons/other surgeries previously.rnrnThe combination of the Center of Excellence hospital and Dr. Bolar's practice allowed me to simply focus on resting and walking rather than having to worry about what was going to happen next or what to do when I left the hospital. The information I was given thoroughly prepared me!rnrnI would recommend Dr. Bolar to anyone looking to have RNY GBS.

I am so grateful for my surgeon. He is so nice and kind. I have OCD, so I had HUGE list of questions at my first appointment. He did the exam, then pulled his stool up and we chatted for a while about EVERY question...It was AWESOME! I knew then that I found the perfect surgeon! Thank God!

He did a great job, answered my questions in a straight forward manner. Not a big hand holder, but then I did not need that, I was to the let's move on and get it done stage. Maybe he would be if you needed that. 1 year out and I am down 120 lbs. Pretty cool.

Dr. Bolar was one of the nicest doctors I have ever meet. His staff is Awesome! I was so embarrest at first and they made me feel so comfortable. In this time and age that says a lot. I highly recommend him! Actually two of my friends had the same operation by Dr. Bolar because of how successful mine was, and nither of them had any trouble.

As doctors go I like Dr. Steely. He has a sense of humor, but is straight to the point. The office staff has been great to me, especially Melissa. I know I bugged her alot waiting on Aetna but she never put me off or acted like I was bothering her she's been great!
