Paul Benn

"Dr. Benn is amazing in his competent knowledge and improvements for WLS. He is very 'genuine' when explaining the procedure and post-effects from surgery. He allows 'stupid' questions, and is approachable while being so professional and not at all intimidating. On a scale of one to ten, I rate him as fifteen! The FVSD aftercare program is excellent! There's positive, informative support from his medical assistant, a wonderful nutritionist, plus physical therapist to ensure we know the program, what's expected of the individual after attaining this invaluable tool for life and body transformation. "

Janice Maidman

"I've been in therapy with Dr. Maidman since May 2004. Only upon my mentioning my PCP's recommendation for weight-loss surgery end of March 2006, did I find out her specialty is WLS> I have continued seeing her bi-weekly from surgery to the present, and this therapy has been invaluable along the body/mind transformation."

Fairview-Southdale (COE)

"Fairview-Southdale has the BEST WLS in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Have gotten many less favorable comments from clients at other numerous programs. Dr. Paul Benn teaches other bariatric surgeons--he revised the staple/and suture new pouch method which has greatly reduced complications in his patients."
