August 20, 2019

This was my initial visit to meet with Dr. Giselle Hamad regarding bariatric surgery. I also met with two of her Physician Assistants, Megan Meyer, and a young man. I apologize I do not remember his name. They all treated me with kindness and respect and definitely outlined the different procedures available to me. I was not 100% sure which type of surgery I wanted when I came to the office that morning, but, after listening to them describe in detail the two procedures I was thinking about and addressing my concerns, I was able to make a thoughtful and informed decision. I felt much more relieved and confident about my upcoming surgery after meeting and speaking with Dr. Hamad and her staff. I know that I can call anytime if I have a question.

This was my first visit to this MD, she was prepared and understood my condition. I felt crowded in the small patient room with two or three residents and the doctor. It was distracting to me,
