Weil-Cornell- Dankin or Afaneh?



Recommended Posts

Hi,

I will be making an appointment with cornell for a consultation. I was referred to Dr. Pomp but it is my understanding that he just retired. I have a choice to see either Dankin or Afaneh. Has anyone had Either for surgery? Although it’s my understanding that Dankin took over for Pam, the reviews for Afaneh online seem better. Thoughts? Thanks.

@Classc1I've been a patient there for a long time. Yes, Dr. Pomp has retired from Weill Cornell and will be at the U. Of Montreal. I know Dr. Dakin fairly well. He's taken over as chief. Afaneh has a decent reputation, too. I think it depends on which surgery you want as to who you see.

Thank you. I’m thinking the gastric sleeve.

@Classc1 I think either would be fine for that. If you want to speak to others about who they've used, you can always go to a bariatric support group there.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
