Are you a patient of Frank Duperier, MD?
1 out of 5 stars Sleeve Gastrectomy
The physician need to develop overall care that include complete bloodwork & more then just one follow up with patient. Dr loves to refer patient to in house dietitian to sell vitamins & supplements. Needs the dietitian to explain the diet beccause he doesn't even know what the diet is. I've seen them make commericals for their practice they have a pair of really x large pants at the office so patient so pic can be taken with them, BMI of texas is a joke - drs are just in it to make money. Their work is stoddy at best - always recommending a new procedures. If you don't lose weight with lap band then they recommend a gastic sleeve if that doesn't work then Incisionless Revision Surgery it never ends.
