A Shining Example

I highly recommend Dr. Samuel Bledsoe. He is everything I want a surgeon to be. He has a wonderful bedside manner, listens to all my questions and concerns, and answers each one. He is very confident in what he is doing, and does an excellent job. He was my surgeon for a gastric sleeve surgery. He made sure I was well prepared for the surgery, knowing what to expect and when. The surgery itself, was very successful, with no complications. His follow-up care cannot be beaten. I just can't say enough good things about Dr. Bledsoe.
