Cyndie recalls how she found out about bariatric surgery and discusses feeling comfortable with bariatric surgeon Dr. Shyam Dahiya.
I first found out about bariatric surgery years ago, probably through talk shows, and I had seen success through these shows and became very interested. And, when I found Dr. Dahiya, I had originally gone to my general family doctor and wasn’t even there to speak with him about that reason, but while I was seeing him, I asked him about gastric bypass surgery and he said, “Oh, I have a friend, you know, a great doctor I can refer you to.” And so I immediately took the number and called him and got all the steps rolling.
Well, when I first met Dr. Dahiya and his staff I was very nervous, but they are very welcoming. Dr. Dahiya is very friendly. He is very forward. He tells you exactly what the procedure involves. He tells you what the risks are. He tells you the positives. He doesn’t leave anything out. He is very informative.
The staff has been incredibly helpful, even in times where it doesn’t necessarily relate to their specialty, they have been really great to just, you know, be there for you. They are a great staff–all of them. I like every single person that works in this office.
