Hi, Alex I just wanted to try to bring something to your attention. I sent an email to you awhile ago. I probably did it wrong but here goes again. The Dr that you have posted on this page, a DR. Brett Hanson as a BARIATRIC SURGEON here in Roseburg, Oregon is not a Bariatric Dr at all. Yes, he is a Surgeon but he doesn't do Weight Loss Surgeries at all. I was very excited because I would love to have him as my Dr. I just wanted to let you know.
