I met Dr Betances last year in November we had contact before cause my sister had done a Gastric bypass by him in 2004 and she always told me i should think about having surgery as we both where heavy at the time.
But I was scared at the time.

Before the doc looked like a stuck up person but afterwards he was just like me a funny guy at work.
His team is very organized begining from the scretary’s to the surgeon himself.

He told me the risk of the surgery as they are and afterwards what go wrong if didn’t comply with what he said after surgery.
If would need to rate hime it would be impossible because he is the BEST there is for me.

Which is better, surgical competence, bedside manner, or are both great?

Well both where great.

The only thing was the lack of attention of the hospital staff, thank god that happend only once.
