I do think Dr. Pomp is an excellent surgeon. I'd recommend him and this surgery. My neice is going to do it next. But be warned, his staff isn't quite as good as his work. So I'd warn you that pre-op they are phenomenal. The girl Jennifer kim I think her name is, who handles his pricing is clear and gets you set up great. The nutritionist Adriana is decent. A bit matter of fact but thorough and tells you what to eat. Gives a lot of paperwork to read on food and what to do in the various post op phases. . The hospital stay is phenomenal. My room felt like a hotel and the nurses were great especially as relates to pain meds and monitoring. But the post op follow ups and care has been a disappointing, in my opinion. After you have the surgery, I feel that Dr. pomp simply don't care much about the recovery just the stats they need for their analysis for the school. He leaves it to Halsey his daily representative who gives differing opinions on things and does not do a great job of logging proper info. For instance, she asked me like three times if she put me on gallbladder pills. I had that removed. So no she did not note it or look before we met. Then, from day one I explained I take milk thistle due to a pre-existing liver issue. I even asked her if my issue stopped me from having surgery. She said no. But she did not note my liver issue in my first pre-op visit. So I recently did have a serious issue with Dr. Pomp accusing me of withholding impt health info, which I did not. His staff actually didn't log the info from our first meeting properly. So that really pissed me off to be chastised for an error on his team's fault. I'm sure he is covering his team's butt. But for me to be told by Halsey she will talk to him about my liver concerns. Then him tell me he didn't know about it before is not cool. Also for my meds to have been thoroughly questioned and supposedly logged but in my first follow up visit to be told by Halsey, I'm not sure why your meds are logged wrong. She had to re-enter details. It does seem clear their system and tracking has a lot to be desired. So I do think the hospital really needs to ensure properly documents convos and medical histories are logged. While I will admit that Halsey seems to be the more "caring one" she isn't as on point as his surgical skills are. But they are a school as well as hospital so maybe that's why their documenting has some errors. As much as that situation was trifling. I would still give Dr. Pomp high marks as his actually surgery skill and my results are pretty phenomenal.
My surgeon tried to shock me with the truth and he was right to do that. You really need to go into the DS fully armed with reasons why you can handle the bad with the good.
