Five Stars

Dr. Graham literally saved my life. Mine was a complex case as I had previously had gastric loop bypass 10 years ago in 2002. I was diagnosed as malnourised with major malabsorption problems and had lost alot of weight. I went into the surgery at only 123 pounds and he performed the roux en y procedure open and made the pouch smaller yet. I now am having stomach tube feedings 3 to 4 times a day to maintain my weight as my surgery was not to lose weight but to save my life as I was getting no nutrients at all. I owe my life to Dr. Graham , I believe he is an excellent surgeon and physician and the best doctor I have ever had.

Rude

I waited in the examining room for a complete hour to have Dr. Graham come in for 5 minutes, dismiss my concern and tell me to ignore my problem. I WILL be getting a second opinion. Not to mention I have to travel 1 1/2 hr to see him. He acted like I was a waste of his time when the only time wasted was mine.
