MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

A number of years ago I had a gastric bypass. After losing 100 pounds and being cut in the area several times, there was no muscle left to exercise to reduce a fat "shelf". I suffered from fungal infections under the shelf, pain from adhesions, pain from the overhanging skin. I suffered for 6 years because I had heard my insurance would pay for having the fat taken off, and the hospital bill, but there were other costs not paid by insurance. My husband always accompanied me to my appointments with Dr. Prevel as support, but we decided two people hear instuctions/outcomes better than one. Dr. Prevel and his staff had no problem with my husband's presence. After the consult visits I received a detailed notebook with all costs spelled out, what meds to take prior to surgery, and post surgery.
Outcomes, risks, pain, progress through the stages of recovery. i had a few medical issues that necessitated me staying in the hospital for a few days. Nothing Dr. Prevel did or didn't do, it just happens. Dr. Prevel visited me in the hospital early in the morning, then called my husband minutes later to let him know exactly what the problems and prognosis would be. Dr. Prevel came back in the afternoon and repeated the process. After my discharge, Dr. Prevel followed me for a long time. He said the 27" scar would smooth and fade. I didn't believe him! LOL. However, 7 months later the scar is indeed fading. My stomach is completely flat. Lipo was also performed to smooth areas and reduce fat in the hips! I am so HAPPY with my new look. No more fat bouncing up and down in the FL heat. Dr. Prevel's office staff is wonderful. Staff can make or break a doctor's office. Nurse Meri was always patient with my concerns and either had an answer or relayed my questions to Dr. Prevel. After seeing him for so many months, I miss going to the office. Dr. Prevel's compassion is evident, particularily if he has to do an unpleasant procedure in the office. A number of years ago I had a gastric bypass.

He is always available to answer questions asked by me or my husband. A revealing factor for a doctor is whether the hospital staff likes him and his manner. Everyone spoke very highly about Dr. Prevel. The trust of the nurses spoke volumes of how Dr. Prevel treats staff and patients. I only wish I could afford to have more work done so I could be under Dr. Prevel’s care again! Don’t hesitate to have plastic surgery done if you need it. Dr. Prevel will take good care of you before and after surgery.
