" I love the staff at Ultimate Bariatrics!! The care and compassion from each staff member I encounter is absolutely amazing. Dr. Novak is a very supportive and caring doctor that I could not ask for a better care giver. The only regret that I have is not calling them sooner to regain my life...I can enjoy my life and family now thanks to Ultimate Bariatrics :) "

" Was not told that I would be having to pay anything on day of my appt, I even called and asked prior to my appt and was told nothing was due. But when I arrived she tried to collect a payment due to me not meeting my out of pocket . Also I waited almost an hour just to be called back to a room to be seen, tried to check with receptionist regarding wait time and nobody was sitting at front desk at all stood there until my name was finally called.

" Wonderful first time experience. I am so glad I found this place. The Doctor and his staff of nurses and customer care were extremely helpful, kind and attentive. I loved the Doctor's vibe too, I got this band 8 years ago and never did anything with it, I feel like now I am definitely going to get the care that I was expecting to get 8 years ago. Glad my money didn't go to waste after all. First day of the rest of my life. Thanks for your patience Doc with my needle fear :P God Bless this team. PS: My Insurance ended up not covering Bariatric care which was disappointing but the appointment to get my fill didn't break my bank even without the insurance so thank goodness for that, glad they are affordable too. "

 Domonique C. - 08/29/2018

" The nurse or medical assistant who took my vitals and information was very courteous, friendly, and empathetic. Dr. Novack was very informative, friendly, personable, and detailed. Because of this is why I have chosen to remain a patient. "

" All staff were excellent "

 Barbara M. - 08/23/2018

" One of the things that really impressed me in the beginning was that every staff member greeted me with a genuine smile and introduced themselves. Many times in doctors offices the staff doesn’t introduce themselves and don’t always wear name tags. It showed in the staffs attitude that they enjoy their working environment. Dr. Novack really took his time to get to know me and consult with me. It was nice to not feel rushed and have time to think about questions I had as well as have them answered. I would without hesitation refer friends and family. "

Shannonthe nurse was amazing! She was always sweet and on top of it. Meagin the nurtitionalist was great! Dr. Smith was wonderfuk! I am so glad I choose this place for me surgery that would change my life forever. It all ran smoothly even for me the perfectionist. My brother and I did our surgery together and they worked so hard to make our appointments together and surgery back to back so we could be support for each other. Our rooms at the hospital were close and we walked every day together. Overall this was the best group of precessional ever and I will and have told everyone about them.

" The doctor was very helpful and straight forward on what I needed to get the best possible outcome. He could have sold me the balloon, that wouldn't really help me achieve my weight loss goal, not even by half. Instead, he approached a different alternative with the gastric sleeve that only cost a thousand more dollars and best for how much weight I need to lose. I really appreciate his honesty and care for what I want to achieve in my weight journey. Thank you so very much. Deena Arterbury "

 Stephanie W. - 04/15/2018

" I was quite surprised when I walked in the door. I do realize that it can be quite hectic from the front desk to the back. The receptionist was extreamly nice and helpful upon check in and the conversation while brief just flowed so easily. When called to the back the nurse was very patient with me as I was a little nervous. After she checked my heught and weight we went to a room. She had noticed the way I filled out my paperwork which sparked a wonderful and informative conversation. Thank you for the information from our discussion. I was very happy and hopeful after speaking with the Dr. He came in and started talking to me like he had known me for years. I felt very comfortable and he was very honest during our discussion which I greatly appreciated. To be honest the whole process seamed effortlessly easy from beginning to the end of the visit. I would definitely recommend this office to anyone. I just hope the rest of the transition is just as easy since I am just getting started. Thank you to the entire office I feel so blessed to have met you all and looj forward to my next visit! "

" I would definitely recommend the office staff, doctors and nurses, etc., The actual procedure (Friday) was a snap... it was so easy to swallow the pilI and I left the office feeling like, "There's nothing to this." However, as far as later that night it was a different story, and it could have been all my fault. So...A word of caution: make sure you are prepared to go home. Don't wait to pick up your medications until the day of the procedure (I was on my own); don't wait to go grocery shopping after when you know what you can eat for the next few days. Get all of the meds and information ahead of the procedure. Just make sure you have water in the car, drink, and drink some more, on the way home... and go home. I was quite ill for 2 days and 3 nights, even with the meds. I called the office and talked to Meaghan Monday morning and she was wonderful. She thought it sounded like I was dehydrated, although I tried my best to drink water, Gatorade and protein drinks, broth and even eat some things. I guess not enough. She offered me to could come in for an IV, but I declined and kept drinking. (Maybe I should have taken her up on the offer... not sure and I'll never know now.) I have been eating as much as my stomach feels it will take, mostly protein and some veggies and broth. With all of the liquids, I'm filling up pretty quickly. This is now day 7. I am still sickly, but better. I quit taking my meds (with the exception of the one I take daily for the next 6 months) on Sunday. I didn't really need anything any longer for nausea, my stomach wasn't cramping, so I quit all meds but one. I'm weak and when I move much I feel like I've run a flight of stairs... winded, and I am still a little shaky, but it's not a sick to my stomach sick. Since I've never been thru this before, I didn't/don't know what to expect. From what I understand, some people handle things wonderfully... me not so much, but I'm at work today (first day back) but I'm leaving in a couple of hours to go home... that will mean I've worked 6 hours. I cant decide whether I need more activity to regain my strength, or less and just renew my body, but let's just say I'm NOT getting on the treadmill any time soon. Anyway, I assumed it would be good for me to sit in my office chair and be upright so I came to work. Therefore, I'll be at work tomorrow, at least most of the day again. The following day is Saturday, and thank the Lord for that! If they post this, I hope it's helpful to you. I pray that you respond with no after effects if you choose to do this. As the Bible says... This too shall pass. Soon! "

 Amy M. - 01/31/2018

" The only recommendation for improvement is for the physician (Adam Smith) to pay attention to detail. When he walked into the room, he did not introduce himself and when he initially addressed me, he wanted to confirm I was turning for my post-surgical followup visit. The problem with this is that I am a first time patient to his office. He should have done a better job at either reading the notes already taken and put into my file, or asked his assistant better questions. I realize surgeons are overwhelmed at times but taking an additional two minutes to review my information would have helped him make a better first impression with me. I am please with his overall approach to my course of treatment and look forward to where this will take me, "

" I trust Dr. Roberts and Dr. Smith completely. They do not lie to their patients or gloss over the reality of your health issues just to “sell you a procedure” like some you see on billboards and commercials. These doctors offer you hope, support, and the encouragement needed to get thru your journey. I am always treated with dignity and respect by them and their entire staff. Losing weight is hard work, surgical intervention gives you the final tool needed to complete the task! "

 Karolyn H. - 07/05/2017

" The receptionist was bubbly and easy to talk to. My appointment was delayed by about 20 minutes, but I believe it to be from Dr. Roberts giving each patient his undivided attention. Once taken back I was quickly seen and felt that all of my questions were addressed and that I received truly personalized care. Jessica made understanding my benefits easy and explained everything clearly, I was even told to reach her if I ever had any questions and I am positive that if I needed to I would actually be able to talk to her and not a machine. My first appointment set quite a precedence for appointments to come, but I having a feeling the team at Ultimate Bariatrics is up to the challenge. Thank you! "
