I started my foray into a surgical alternative for my obesity on January 2014 at 355 pounds . Finally had a laparoscopic vertical sleeve gastrectomy accomplished by Dr. Alexander Abkin on April 7th 2014.
My first impression of Dr. Abkin was that he was interested in me from the git go. My first telephone conversation with him was so comfortable and he understood all the problems I had , he made me feel so comfortable. My admiration of him as a humanitarian and prodigal surgeon grew with each conversation and meeting.
All the people in his office were great . Dr Abkin is more than competent, bubbly and supportive. You should know that Dr. Abkin is attentive, caring and available. He delights in his profession and the blessings it can bring to others by the tools he offers. He is very honest about risks and benefits and that this surgery is just a tool. He is right. That is all it is. That is however, what made the difference for me. I took his advise very seriously. I am currently at 200 lbs.
Overall, I would rate Dr. Abkin on a scale of 1 to 10 at 1000 I cannot speak highly enough of him. This surgery was the best decision of my life I had high cholesterol high blood pressure and many other health problems and now after a year down almost 150 pounds with the help of my new stomach and lots of exercise I accomplish to have the body I have now without much lose skin and very tone up for the most part .
THANK YOU VERY MUCH DR ABKIN. I can’t say you gave me my life back because I been overweight my whole life but what I can say is you deff gave me a new one that I can now enjoy.
