I'm 6 yrs post RNY gastric bypass done at New Start (St Alexius Hospital - NOT a great experience) in St. Louis. Shortly after my surgery, my surgeon retired, and I switched my care to a physician in Paducah, KY. Did great with his care until he quit practice in 2009. Since then my care has been managed by primary care physician. This hasn't really worked well, since bariatrics not a familiar specialty to him. I really need to find a bariatric surgeon in state. I live in Southeast Missouri - so none located anywhere close - but am looking to the St Louis area again since it's the closest (2 hours away). Just do NOT want to see anyone connected with New Start. Please, any suggestions appreciated. Thanks!
