Michelle Reviews Her VSG Experience with Dr. Adeyeri and Team

We are grateful to Michelle Staton who recently took the time to post an in-depth Google patient review of her bariatric gastric sleeve operation performed by Dr. Adeyeri at Hackensack Meridian Health. Michelle also offered her unique insight into surgical weight loss and offered her advice about how to use the surgery as a tool toward a full lifestyle reboot.

I successfully had my VSG (Gastric Sleeve) done by Dr. Adeyeri.

I was referred by my co-worker who also had his done by Dr. Adeyeri. After a few months of entertaining the idea of VSG, I scheduled my consultation. Dr. Adeyeri was and has consistently been very pleasant, passionate about what he does, a wealth of knowledge, and prioritized my well-being.

The thought of surgery, anesthesia, and recovery was scary, but Dr. Adeyeri and Natasha his admin have been transparent and supportive along the way. Not once have I ever felt like a disposable patient, they have been accessible and cheering me on since day 1.

I had the option of going to another provider that was in-network for my insurance, but chose to go with Dr. Adeyeri because:

1. I felt safe
2. He makes sure you know what you’re signing up for
3. He does not balance bill
4. He follows along your journey for life!

Lastly, VSG is not a fix-all. You have to put in the effort to follow all the guidelines Dr. Adeyeri and his dietitian give you. The hardest in this entire experience has been waking up post-op. It WILL make you reconsider what you’ve done, but I promise it is 100000% worth it and you want Dr. Adeyeri and his team behind you!
