"So far I feel very safe and confident with my surgeon. As time went by I felt as though his staff remembered me personally each time I checked in with questions and reports of my presurgical progress. Dr. Ikramudin and his staff are wonderful. Some of the staff are all past Bariatric Surgery patients. All surgery risks were covered and I was given many opportunities to ask questions, \"There are NO dumb questions\". His bedside manner was that of a concerned surgeon.. If he couldn't be there his collegues were there daily. They gave me plenty of time to ask questions and voice my concerns.rnAfter care is stressed and the appointment times I had ran pretty much on time. I would have to say his surgical competence is overall his strongsuit. Working in this field doesn't afford him the time to get too overly chatty.rn I feel as though I was his prime concern at all times.rnI am going to see him on my 3 month post op appt. I haven't been able to schedual times that coincided with his schedual. This will be the first time I have seen him since I left the hospital. I am excited to be able to thank him in person:)"
