"I personally think ... Dr. Lin a wonderful physician~ He was prepared, caring and thorough, he explained all of my options and potential risk. I originally decided that the Realize band was my best option because I already knew I didn't want the RNY (more like the malabsorptive effect). Dr. Lin provided a recommendation based on my healthcare condition(s);Which was food for thought! SO ... I decided to go with a more aggressive WLS... The Gastric Sleeve! I am so excited and pleased with Dr. Lin, surgical competence and his bedside manner. The Emory Bariatric staff are wonderful and been extremely helpful in preparing me for pre-certification phase with Aetna. The aftercare program is a $600.00 which is a little costly but, not bad in comparison to other programs that charge 3x times that or more in the Atlanta area. They provide access to the dietician and groups etc 's So it's worth every penny in my opinion. "
