I just wanted to update since my last update... As of today, Feb 20, 2012, i have lost 100.2 lbs, and my surgery was Dec 12, 2011 by Dr.Fath in Odessa, Texas... He did a remarkable job and i highly recommend this surgeon to you.. I had himark blue cross/blue shield and after i had met my deductible, i only had a small out of pocket... Dr. Fath is a remarkable surgeon... He is literally giving me my life back. You can find me on facebook at www.facebook.com/tcoman

Dr Fath... did an incredible thing for me by converting an old NON-ADJUSTABLE Gastric Band from Marcel Molina... Dr. Faith has great bedside manner and what impressed me is that he called me back on a saturday, listened to my story and they got my insurance stuff handled quick, and on Dec 12, he did my surgery to a Full Gastric Bypass...

Dr. Fath, upon first meeting him, was very knowledgeable and seemed very helpful. I don't live in the same city he works in. He assured me he would follow up by phone calls and visits. Had surgery, all went well, and his visits also went well while in the hospital at Innova.
I am 6 mos post op and have yet to have any type of follow up with Dr. Fath. I have had very little communication with just his staff and the Dr has no longer come to my city.

I am lucky that I have not had any other problems.

All in all, I am thankful I had this surgery.

Dr.Fath performed Roux en Y Bypass on me 16 months ago.I received excellent care from Dr. Fath and the entire staff at Innova.Dr. Fath is a very skilled and caring surgeon.He made a great first impression,which was reenforced with time.He addressed the risks of the procedure and emphasized the importance of aftercare.I would rate Dr.Fath as a very fine surgeon,his great bedside manner,is matched by his skill as a surgeon.

My surgeon was wonderful!!! I had my surgery 5 weeks ago and he has been there for me!! He is just a phone call away. He calls and checks up on me. He is my surgeon, but he has also become a friend.! I have not had any problems with my surgery. He is a very competent surgeon. I don't have anything negative to say about him, only positive comments.

Dr. Fath was wonderful to work with. He was very informative and answered all of my questions and concerns. He made certain I understood that the surgery is a tool and would give me an opportunity to change my behavior. Dr Fath also made certain I understood that people who revert back to old eating habits WILL gain weight.rnrnMy most memorable moment with Dr. Fath was the day after I came home from the hospital and began to feel very sick. I called Dr. Fath at the office and told him what was going on. He advised me on what to do, then gave me his cell phone number in case I did not get better within a few hours. Funny thing is that I never had to use it because Dr. Fath called me at home every few hours to check one me. I jokingly told him the next day that he was one call away from being a stalker!!rnrnThe staff in Dr. Faths' office and the aftercare program have been awesome as well. Even though I'm 3 1/2 years post-op and now live 6 hours north, I still call now and again with a question or concern and receive the same outstanding service.rnrnIf anyone in the San Antonio TX area is looking for a GREAT surgeon and good aftercare team, these guys are the BEST!!rnrn

MY FIRST IMPRESSION OF DR FATH WAS A POSITIVE ONE . HE IS AN EASY GOING KIND OF PERSON THAT DOES NOT MAKE YOU FEEL BAD ABOUT YOURSELF. I HAD MY SUGERY IN MAY OF 2007. HE HAS STILL MADE ME FEEL GREAT ABOUT MYSELF WHEN I WOULD GO FOR MY FOLLOW UP VISITS. HIS STAFF MEMBERS ARE GREAT; VERY FRIENDLY. I HAVE NOTHING BAD TO SAY ABOUT DOCTOR FATH OR HIS STAFF; I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE THAT WANTS A POSITIVE FEELING BEFORE AND AFTER SURGERY. THERE ARE SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS ONCE A MONTH SO HIS PATIENTS CAN SHARE IDEAS THAT WORKED FOR THEM AND WHAT HELPED THEM THROUGH THEIR HARD TIMES. I WOULD RATE DOCTOR FATH 10 ON A SCALE OF ONE TO TEN.

Dr. Fath is fantastic!!..He is a down to earth kinda guy..which is important. He speaks to you on your level while addressing the importance of aftercare and any risks of the surgery. His staff is always very welcoming and always has a smile on their face when you come in to their office. Overall, I know I made the best decision by choosing Dr. Fath and the Bariatric program at Guadalupe Regional Medical Center.
