Doc John saved my life

I had been sick for quite a while . I went to Gettysburg hospital on two occasions for diverticulitis . They sent me home with pills and no improvement . I went to a gastroenterologist same deal , I went to the hospital for a colonoscopy , finally was so sick , they weren't sure what the problem was . They transferred me to York Hospital and the care of Dr. John and his team . They performed emergency surgery to remove my colon on Oct.15 th . It was 5 days until they could tell my wife I was going to make it . I saw Dr. John and members of his team morning and evening . Finally out of intensive care , I felt like I was OK . The team the hospital , and all the nurses were outstanding . Dr. John became my friend , the guy who encouraged me every step of the way . I really don't think I would be here to write this review without Dr. John . Thanks to Doc , all his team and staff .

Love Dr Monk

Dr Monk is an honest, caring doctor. He does not sugar coat the truth. He gives nothing but the way it is! I had some issues having my surgery approved and Dr Monk and his staff went WAY out of the way for me to get it approved. I have lost 135 pounds after surgery and am almost at goal weight almost a year later. If you are considering weight loss surgery, don't wait, call today! You have nothing to lose. :)

Great Experience

Dr. Monk did gastric bypass for me in 2003 and i am down 167 lbs and work daily to keep it off. I did have another surgery done in 2005 and thanks to Dr. Monk I am alive today. I had a severe infection in my abdomen, from a previous surgery, done by another surgeon from MD I was in surgery for over 12 hours and Dr. Monk was there the whole time. He kept my family updated on my progress and he was totally honest with them and told them if it had not been for the fact i made the decision to have gastric bypass previously and lost a significant amount of weight i most likely would not have survived this surgery. Thank you Dr. Monk and i would recommend him to anyone.
