"I met Dr. Facundus on my first visit to his office. He was nice, professional and of course like everyone says, nice looking. I also met one of his associates...Dr. Fernandez. Dr. Fernandez was actually the one who spent the most time with me explaining the procedure and doing a brief physical exam.rnrnThe office staff was nice and have been helpful.rnrnDr. Facundus is very big on aftercare. He requires that you visit the Bariatric Counselor, Nutritionist and a support group before you even meet with him for the first time. The Bariatric Wellness Institute is the entity that he is associated with to accomplish the aftercare goals. They check your metabolism before surgery and at one year, have nutritionists on staff and run the support groups. Since everything I read says that patients who are serious about aftercare do better, I'm happy that my surgeon stresses this as well."
"My stay was very pleasant, the nurses took good care of me, the short stay unit was absolutely beautiful! Hardwood floors in the hall and rooms! They were kind to my family, was very quiet and easy to rest."
