He wasn't my surgeon but I hear he's one of the best in fact he has the Lap Band himself and I believe he has done thousand's and is one of the pioneers in banding. What did you think of him?

i like him very much..so far. But of course I have not been banded yet. I first went to him about two years ago because he was a pioneer and was so impresed that he was banded...that's a walking advertisement, he looks great btw. He is an Aussie and very approachable and fortright. The waiting room the other day became a support group..we were all laughing and talking..and for the first time in memory, I was one of the thinner people in the room:)

Dr. Fielding is hands down one of the greatest band surgeons in the world. In fact, he impressed me so much when I heard him speak it was one of the reasons I started banding in the first place. You could not possibly be in better hands!

Dr. Fielding is *amazing*

He banded on 10/23 and it's been a great ride. I'll be seeing him again on 2/27 for another fill and I'm really excited about it. You'll be in great hands... and not just him, the whole office is awesome.

If you have any questions about the surgery or what to expect, please feel free to PM me. My friend is also having surgery her surgery on 3/5.

You just know it's going to be a great day! Good luck, Mags.

Hi there,
I attended an info session conducted by Dr. Fielding and I agree-he seems like an incredible doc. This was just last week, and I'm still pondering the whole surgery. How did you feel about the sessions with the nutritionist and the psychologist? I'm trying to get an appt as soon as possible with Dr. Huberman, so any feedback on the entire process leading up to the approval would be very much appreciated. Thanks for any suggestions, information, and help you can offer,
Best,
Mari
