    Pam,
    Would you recommend your doctor? Even though I'm in central California now, I'm afraid by the time I get approved, I will have retired and moved. My husband and I are planning to move to the Cypress, TX area to be near our son and his family as soon as we retire at the end of this year. In case I haven't had my surgery by then, I would love to get recommendations for Bariatric surgeons in the area. Even if I have had surgery, I may need to find a doctor for follow-up care. I appreciate your in-put.

    Cypress is WAY far from Sugar Land. I wouldn't recommend him though, if you're looking for a comprehensive bariatric experience. go to TLC or one of the big bari centers that provide nutrition and emotional support. My guy is a general surgeon, so he's considered a 'sleeve em and leave em' doc.

    If that's anywhere near Central Texas lookup Dr. Fass at Southwest Bariatrics in Austin, Texas. My doctor in Glendale CA recommended him when I moved back to Texas.

    I am in Cypress also. I am currently waiting on approval from BCBS to set a surgery date with Dr. Ferrari. He is very thorough.
    Best it only takes me about 35 min to get to his office and hospital.
