Dr Landers and his office staff are the best. He not only restarted our hospitals bariatrics program but, he also advocated with our insurance program, to increase our coverage. I had my laparoscopic Roux n y, in september of 2019 and I could not be happier with my results.

I feel so blessed to have had Dr. Landers and the bariatric team at Overlake Hospital to work with through my weight loss journey. Dr. Landers has an incredible bedside manner and so easy to talk to. He demonstrates his compassion and dedication to the needs of his bariatric patients, making one feel at ease and secure at placing themself in his very capable hands. He will always be my angel who gave me my second chance. The entire staff at the bariatric clinic is awesome in the way they provide top notch services for their patients from all the preliminary testing, education, and information to the way they continue to followup with you after surgery. This team is dedicated to helping you achieve success and I especially appreciate that they are always accessible and ready to help whenever you might need them. I believe I had the best of the best for my WLS and am so thankful for each and every one of them.

The important thing to remember is that this is NOT a magic cure. The staff is always there for support and encouragement but you alone are responsible to do your part to insure your success. If you are not committed to making lifestyle changes and being healthy, then this is not for you. I've been given the gift of a second chance and I have no intention of ever going backwards. God bless you Dr. Landers and the entire bariatric team....you are my heros!

It couldn't have gone better. Dr Landers was very informative and very down to earth and kind of adorable, I must add. ;) ha ha
From the beginning it was such an easy process. I was approved by Group Health and Medicare at first request. If it wasn't for my issue with quitting smoking I would have had the surgery a year ago. Group Health's process is well established and made the entire process very easy. I was very confident with my decisions because all of my questions were answered before I had to ask them. The communication through email was very convenient and sped up the process in my opinion. I had less office visits because of it, which meant less co pays too!
The social worker was amazing, she found me financial aid programs that made the process a lot more affordable.
The surgery went exactly as planned and the hospital staff took great care of me. I couldn't be happier.

Well Dr. Landers is a great guy and a real nice person to have as your WLS. He is like me a kind of nit picker and pays special attention to even small details. He communicates very well and takes the time to explain exactly what he is going to do and why he is doing it. He has a great sense of humor and pleasant personality. Your confidence will be assured after a meeting with him, he obviously knows what he is doing. I would highly recommend him as he removed my gal bladder and did RNY on me 5/2012.

No surgeon as of yet, had to start the process over again, but I am with Group Health now and they are great! They have fantastic surgeons and do all the paperwork, plus I work there so I think that makes it even better!

Best surgeon ever!!!!

First impression: Laid back and funny! Super knowledgable. Great staff, not crazy about the PA he works with, but we have only met once at my first post op, Truely I have no complaints about Dr Landers.

I met my surgeon today 9/4. He seemed to mutter a bit, and he was younger than I anticipated, but I felt comfortable that he was more than competent. The only member of his office staff that I met was his medical assistant Robin. But in an earlier orientation today, I also met the bariatric program case manager Julie Grimm, and the Accomplish Weight Mgmt program director, Wendy McKennon. I liked them all very much. Robin had also had the gastric bypass and looked great.
Aftercare was highly important to Dr. Landers and there is a program with Accomplish Weight Management for 12 months of nutritional counseling.
Dr. Landers did address the risks of the surgery and discussed that if the lap rny did not look like it would work, he could do an other procedure. I would rate Dr. Landers very highly, of course this was my first meeting. Surgical competence is much more important, at least as far as my insides are concerned! He took time to answer all my questions and explained all to me.

I met my Doc today. He was half an hour late, however he was needed at the hospital which I feel totally takes priority. If I were in the hospital, that's how I would want it! His MA was wonderful. She is 10 months out and 90 lbs. lighter from her own WLS.rnI appreciated that we have a \"back up plan\" in the event a Lap RNY isn't doable. Highly unlikely though. rnWill write more later!rnrnFebruary 23, 2009rn In the hospital I saw my Doc once, briefly, and his PA, Bill, a couple of times. Bill took care of my discharge. He is amazing. What a great team! Very warm and personable. I felt like I was important, which goes to show the level of care I received was excellent!rn I had my two week post op on 2/19. Doc was great. We reviewed labs, and my procedure,which he thought would have been a bit trickier due to scar tissue, and turned out it wasn't. I apprecite that Dr. Landers uses a level of self-disclosure as to why WLS is an important part of his practice.
