My father is considering having LAPBAND surgery at King's Daughters hospital in Ashland, Ky. (I had mine in Georgetown, KY) Does anyone have any feedback on King's Daughters, or Dr. Tompkins and Dr. Wheeler????

Kings daughter hospital in ashland ky is the greatest. They have been a part of my family history. I myself was born at kings daughter. All of the staff at the hospital are wonderful. You shouldn't have anything to worry about? Marcy

I'm bumping this because it looks like this is where I'm going to have to have my surgery after all.

Gibson, do you have a surgery date? I am still waiting and have been since oct 06. My insurance is hard to get lapband surgery approved. Speaking of Kings daughter Hospital, I was there 3 weeks ago to visit my aunt. Again I tell you not to worry as this hospital is the greatest. I come to Ashland to visit my family occasionally. Do you live in Ashland? Keep in touch as it helps to have the support from friends. Marcy

Thanks for the reply, Marcy! Nope, I don't live in Ashland, I live around two hours south of there but since I live thick in the sticks Ashland is the closest surgery center. I'm glad to know that you have a lot of faith in the hospital! I talked to the wife of a man who had lap band surgery there a couple of years ago and she said it was FABULOUS! I feel so much better now. =)

Oops, I said all that and didn't answer one of your questions! No, I don't have a surgery date yet. No where near it, unfortunately. But I'm not giving up!!!

Hey guys, I just wanted to add that I had surgery at Kings Daughters in November. Dr Wheeler is my surgeon. I loved the hospital and Dr Wheeler. The office staff is great too!

So glad to hear you all love KDMC!! I am an employee of the medical center and am very proud of the work we do. I see Dr. Wheeler on 2/11 to schedule surgery and am so excited!! By the way, Dr. Wheeler and Tompkins are great. They have good outcomes and the SWL staff are wonderful and sooooo supportive. Best wishes to all!!!
