"When Dr. Cole first came into the office he sat down next to me and proceeded to explain to me the process of surgery. All throughout he was very compassionate and assured me that it was not my fault, and he put his arm around me and made me feel a lot better about my choice to have the surgery. My mother had roux-en-y several years ago and he was her doctor. She loved how thorough and how caring he was. That is the reason I chose him and I believe I made a good choice."
