Choosing a surgeon for Bariatric Surgery was a process for me and my husband. We wanted to be absolutely positive that he/she was not only brilliant and a great surgeon but also had an understanding of obesity and everything that comes with it. We wanted to be sure that the surgeon as trained, educated and had empathy for the morbidly obese while also understanding I would need him/her and their practice in my life to help me with this struggle. I was NOT looking for a one and done. Surgeon, Support and Education was my criteria for choosing a practice.

We found it all. It takes time to vet the surgeon and also find exactly who and where it have the surgery. We wanted the hospital to be a Center of Excellence in Bariatrics'.

Lindsey S. Sharp MD and his practice (REX Bariatric Surgeons) fit my criteria and have exceeded my expectations in all aspects almost 5 years later. Dr. Sharp and his practice have provided me with a great tool, great support and education to keep myself focused and successful.

Rex is the best!!!! I am 6 days post op and I feel like this team has supported me every step of the way! I chose Dr Bermudez to do my surgery and I could not be more pleased with how I am doing so far. I know this Dr and support team will be with me through my full recovery and beyond.

I had DS with dr Sharp on 4/1. The clinic and everything that goes along with it are fantastic. Great support & information before surgery & now I've had great support after. Awesome group.

I wish that I could say the same. I did not even get as far as the consult. I had messaged them and called and I guess I fell between the cracks because they were not very responsive to me. I wondered if it was because I am self-pay. It was a poor first impression and because of that I did not choose them. I am still pre-op.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
