"Dr. Svendsen was recommended to me by both my PCP and my daughter, who is a nurse.
His experience, his qualifications and his confidence gave me a sense of well-being and "rightness" about this surgery. His nurse Barb and the office staff are terrific. One of the very first things I recieved was a list of names and phone numbers that I could call if I had any questions. The bariatric program requires that I meet with both the surgeons office and the nutritionist multiple times the first year post-op then tapers off the second and third year. All in all, I'd give Dr. Svendsen and the Park Nicollet bariatric program an 11 on a scale of 1 thru 10."
"Checkin was smooth and swift. Everyone was very good about explaining what they were doing and what was going to happen next. Preparation prior to surgery was done in a recliner chair rather than bed. That was much more comfortable for me."
