UVAHealth Bariatrics

"Every appoinment I have ever had at UVA has been wonderful. All doctors there are so caring and dedicated. There are a lot of residents around, but they mostly observe. Some people may have issues with that, but it doesn't bother me. One day, those people may be in a position to save my life. I like knowing they are getting a great education."

Bruce Schirmer

"I am very impressed with Dr. Schirmer. He took his time with me, answered all my questions. His office is doing all the leg work with my insurance company, so all I have to worry about is completing the tests needed for approval.rnrnI like the fact that the UVA team will be following up with me at least once a year for the rest of my life. It's nice to know that what I am doing now will, one day in the future, help other people have safer WLS.rnrnThe only negative thing I can say about my experience was that we were there from 8 am until after 2 pm. However, we got a lot accomplished in that amount of time. Lab work was completed, a class about the different weight loss surgeries, and consults with a dietician, surgeon, and the insurance man (he who saves me much trouble)."
