    Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity.

some doctors need to have better bedside manners and proven facts

Accused me of causing him to have hepatitis c from their mistake of dropping a needle they used on me that punctured Dr alperovich. Turns out I never had hep c. What a joke he is.

Horrible lack of compassion

He was the On call doc that i talked to after my lap chole on post op say 1. I was having a severe reaction and itching from head to toe. Face bright red, itchy throat. Horrible pain. His response was that he could do nothing for me and "good luck". I ended up in the ER with IV steroids. No thanks to this guy. He does not care about patient safety at all. Would never use him. Ever. He should not be a medical provider.

No options but surgery - arrogant patient care

I was seen by Dr. Alperovich at UW Valley Medical with gallstone pancreatitis, diagnosed through the E/R department. When the doctor arrived, he spend less than 10minutes with me. His first words after telling me the diagnosis (which I was told already by e/r), were that he would perform surgery the next day to remove my gall bladder. He did not ask me questions about the circumstances that preceded the attack, which was my diet of high fatty meats that was unusual for me. He did not offer any other options, even to discuss them and state that it might be an option he did not recommend. When I asked for time to discuss the surgery with my partner, he left and never returned. When I sent a message through the nursing staff that I wanted to be discharged (holiday weekend) and seek a second opinion, he did not respond. I was forced to tell the nursing staff that I wanted to speak to a physician. It had been over 8hours since admission and only that one <10min discourse of the "planned" surgery. He was already out of the building. The nurse said he refused to come see me and would not discharge me. Nothing was said about being under observation to watch my enzyme levels, which would have been useful information. He was paged and forced to call me at almost 10pm, telling me I could leave AMA (against medical advice). That would stick me with a bill my insurance would not pay, so I felt held hostage to his awful patient care. He returned the next morning around 8am and in 2minutes told me I would be discharged and we would not be a good fit for him as my surgeon. No kidding! He did not ask me any questions, nor did he offer any additional information. I had to ask about the enzyme levels, which I had inquired with the nursing staff about after my labs were done that morning. He is a surgeon with only surgery as his option, apparently. Most every nurse I spoke with during that visit confirmed that he regularly ignored his patients requests for follow-up. I can only imagine how difficult and intimidating it must be for patients with less education, cultural differences and language and fear of questioning the medical profession. I would never send any of my family or friends to this doctor because he did not provide care that included listening to the patient, nor providing the full picture of options - with their pros and cons. Dr. A no more...
