Dallas Surgeons / Clinics



Recommended Posts

Hello!

I am interested in hearing about various weight loss clinics and specific surgeons in Dallas, TX. I am looking into gastric sleeve. I am not looking outside of Dallas, just in Dallas proper.

I have an appt today with Dr. Davidson at Presbyterian Hospital. I have another appt scheduled with Nicholson Clinic. I am sure any surgeon can do the surgery ... I'm looking for excellent after care.

Thanks!

I'm interested in this too. I'm in Dallas and have met with a doctor at True Results in Plano. So far, I've had a positive experience - friendly staff, easy process, good facility and they work hard to keep costs down without sacrificing quality of care. I'm just waiting to have my tests reviewed and to set my date. Good luck!

I went through True Results and they paired me with Dr. Smith out of Ft. Worth Lap Band, but my surgery was actually done in Richardson. He has several facilities he's able to operate at.

I had mine last year with Charlotte Hodges with Barker Bariatrics. They use Forest Park Medical. It is a beautiful facility and since this is primarily what they do....the staff is great and well trained to care for you.

I live in Ft. Worth and was referred to the Nicholson clininc by someone I really trusted and can't say enough about them, Dr. Nick and his team have been recognized and awarded Best Baraitric Doctors in Dallas the last several years. I drive about 60 miles just to see them, I am 3 weeeks post op today and everything is going great. AWESOME DOCTORS!

I am just starting this journey and have met with Dr David Kim, Dr. Clayton Frenzel and Dr. Nick Nicholson. Was actually impressed by all three. Have eliminated Dr Nicholson and I am torn between Lee and Frenzel. Loved, loved, loved Frenzel but like the office staff at Dr Kim's better. I need to make a final decision and will likely go with Frenzel.

I suppose it would also be dependent on your insurance and who Is covered by your policy. I can tell you if you are cash pay there is about a $5000.00 difference between these three. I am cash pay but price doesn't matter when it comes to my health and who I feel more comfortable with.

What was wrong with Dr. Nicholson? I was going to check out his clinic next, but see a different surgeon.

Met with Dr. Davidson today. I don't think he's for me. I need a sense of community and partnership as well as aftercare. He's just the surgeon lol

There was nothing wrong with Dr Nick but had to start eliminating. My decision to eliminate him was based on one of my friends who was not impressed with his staff or aftercare but she raved about him. I think deep down inside I already have my heart set on Frenzel. I loved him but his office is a little old and the staff that you initially interact with seem a little lost....however I have been impressed with their insurance coordinator and my baristric coordinator.

If you want a sense of community you might want to check out Dr Kim in Colleyville. His patients rave about the support groups and their private Facebook support page. They do 5ks and things like thst together. Another reason why I am torn with my decision. I like the after support with Kim's office!!

I'm in Dallas proper so it's not very feasible to go to Colleyville. Where is Dr. Frenzel?

I went to his office in Arlington. It is fairly close to the Six Flags/ballpark area.

I believe he has a office in Dallas as well.

I know he has support groups too. In Arlington I think she said they were on Thursday nights and they are trying to get a group set up for Saturday mornings as well.

Doesn't Dr. Kim have a pending law suit against him? Or am I thinking of someone else?

Hi, Dr Kim did my inverted sleeve 3 years ago. He's done over 7500 surgeries and I highly recommend him and his office staff is very helpful and nice. I am down 90 lbs and am living life again thanks to him! I think its really cool that you are thinking of after surgery support. Well I tell ya, Kim Bariatric has the most amazing after surgery support I have heard of!! They offer monthly fitness events with Nate Newton, they are just starting monthly bike rides, Dr Kim throws his patients a really nice Christmas party every year, the private patient only Facebook support group has helped me a ton!!! We do monthly 5k/10ks, monthly Breakfast and dinner get togethers, we do fun event get togethers like painting, dancing, bowling, and we are working on doing more fun event get togethers. The FB group is like a little weight loss surgery family. I have met sooo many friends through that group. Its been so helpful for my journey to be successful! I wish the best for you on whomever you chose. :)
