The doctors, nurses, receptionist seemed to think me being there in the office for follow up after four years post-op was totally unnecessary. Hey, I thought we were supposed to follow-up every year for bloodwork etc to ensure we were getting all the nutrients we're supposed to. When they did do bloodwork, it was very minimal and nothing to do with ensuring I was getting enough nutrients. I did not care for Dr Lederer at all. All I was getting when discussing re-gain was platitudes. Blah, blah, blah, blah. Totally unhappy and will not go back even if I have an issue. I'll go elsewhere.
