C D, San Jose: Laparoscopic Roux-en-y gastric bypass's Story

  • ~ C D, San Jose: Laparoscopic Roux-en-y gastric bypass~

    Sept 09 – My surgery was 6 months ago. I am amazed at how fast my life and body has changed. I have lost over 100 pounds and my BMI has gone from Morbidly Obese to get this NORMAL. I am 13 pounds away from my goal and life is fantastic. Dr. Zaré has been with me every step of the way. From follow up visits to phone calls. When I have needed him he has been there (and Ben is pretty great too). I even get calls just to make sure I am doing good and staying on track. I could not have chosen a better surgeon or office to be my partner through my bariatric surgery.

    Thanks for saving my life and helping me make the best of my future!rnrnFeb 09 – After having my insurance approved and then denied 4 years ago (and losing and gaining 50 pounds) – I felt like I was ready to start the process of looking into weight loss surgery once again. I met with 3 surgeons in the San Jose area and was most impressed with Dr. Zaré and his office coordinator, Ben. Dr. Zaré was very informative in explaining the benefits/risks of gastric bypass vs lap band. His friendly, relaxed and upbeat manner reassured me that he was the surgeon for me. I did not feel any pressure from him or his office (which I did from one of the other surgeons). My approval process was incredibly fast (thanks Ben) and I was scheduled for surgery on March 4, 2009. My surgery did not go as smooth as planned due to a medication reaction on my part.

    However, Dr. Zaré was completely on top of the problem, working with me, my family, the nurses and additional doctors to resolve the problem. His bedside manner was fantastic, always reassuring me in his calm manner that everything was going to work out fantastic (and it did!) plus he was always available (checking in on me in person numerous times a day and by phone with the nursing staff). I was well aware of the risks before surgery, but never thought that I would have any problems, I am so glad that Dr. Zaré was my surgeon. His conservative proactive approach and excellent surgical skills truly saved my life. I give him an A+ rating in both surgical competence and bedside manner.
