Dr. David Hall in Wylie, TX


6 posts in this topic

Has anyone used or heard of Dr. Hall in Wylie? My sister went to one his seminars on Thursday. She is wanting the band badly but he and his staff kept pushing gastic bypass. He says that he will do Lapband but would not recommend it. What a bunch of bull! I don't feel comfrtable with my sister using him, but she feels confident. Just wanted to see what anyone else thought of him. Unfortunately, he is the only one in this area on her insurance.

I would suggest going to a hospital that has a better education program. I work in the dfw area with lap bands and also have one myself. I have seen complications from wylie due to lack of education. it would be worth a drive to find a better program.

I hope your sister can find a doc that suits her. There are a LOT of good ones in Texas that do both surgeries and don't run one procedure down over the other. I would tell her to do some more shopping around, even if it means looking at other financing options. Don't get in too big of a rush and then be really disappointed with the surgery and/or after care.

Terry :eek:

I am very familiar with the Wylie area and have never heard of Dr. Hall. Also, if she is looking at doing it there in Wylie, I know they had a death related to this procedure. That hospital has opened/closed many times over the years, each time under a different bariatric treatment name.

There are too many good doctors within easy driving distance from Wylie for her to settle for an outmoded surgery at a questionable clinic.

The Surgical Center of Richardson (just off No. Central on Belt Line) is not far from Wylie at all and Dr. Benevides there is one of the most experienced and successful in the country.

My insurance company (BCBS) would not approve several of the clinics in that area. Has she checked with her carrier to see who they will approve?

Who is her carrier??

Personally I wouldn't go through with him if he already has such a negative approach to the band.

Dr. Barker, Dr. Powell, or Dr. Benavides are the 3 I recommend the most to our patients. :(
