Amber CRNP was the first staff to discuss my pending surgical procedure - she was fabulous! She took her time explaining my options, listened carefully to my concerns and complimented me on my knowledge (and research) of my upcoming bariatric procedure. She helped me understand the various options, the downtime and maintenance post op. I have worked in an OR setting previously, and she is an asset to your team! She calming and fun demeanor put me at ease with my surgical decision. Dr Ramanathan is simply a pleasure!! He is caring and personable. He took the time to candidly answer my questions and reassuringly assisted me to finalize my bariatric surgical choice. I have yet to meet surgeons and their team who are this high level of compassion and friendliness. I'm feeling very comfortable to have them work with me to obtain my healthy weight goals.
