Darin Minkin, Bariatric Surgeon M.D.
I'm 12 days out of surgery and am really pleased. My stay at Des Peres hospital was really good, great nurses, great interns, private room, quality care! It really was my best stay in a hospital. If any complaint is possible, it would be that they were over attentive.
I couldn't be happier with my surgeon, Dr. Minkin, either. He's good! He has a great group of surgeons and interns supporting him and I believe he did a fantastic job.
As for his office staff-ehh-lets just say I'm glad I didn't get a band and have to schedule fills and adjustments with them.
I'm very happy and glad with my choice to have WLS VGS with Dr Minkin.
Dr. Minkin lead the seminar last week. He was very thorough and answered all of my questions. I have my first consulation March 2nd and I'm very excited to begin my journey.rnrnrnDr, Minkin is GREAT! He is so patient and addresses ALL of my questions (which seem like thousands, so far). He's kind and compassionate. His office has been great, too. They rushed my paperwork through to insurance, knowing that I was in a time crunch. I am so thankful!March 28, 2009
I first met Dr. Minkin when I needed Hernia Surgery. He was very thorough, compassionate, and understanding. His facilities are first-rate and the after-care I received from the hospital following my hernia surgery was better than I had ever experienced before. I am sure my Lap Band surgery will be no different. Knowing Dr. Minkin and Des Peres Hospital are on my side takes a lot of the worry out of my decision.May 12, 2007
