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.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
