Mr Zaher Toumi
9th August 2023
I am currently in week three of my vertical sleeve gastrectomy and cannot find any sort of fault with the treatment given to me by Mr Toumi and his team. This man is an absolute boon to Spire Washington and from the first consultation to lying down on that operation table he has been attentive, considerate and incredibly understanding, 15 minutes before my operation he came into my room just to ask how I was doing, when I mentioned I was feeling anxious he instantly took a seat and went through all of my worries with me and was only happy to finish preperation once my anxiousness was gone. In the weeks leading up to and after my surgery he has never been more than an email away, often replying within the hour even when he was working! No question is too small or silly for him to answer and he will always make sure you understand all of the options and alternatives available to you before you commit to anything.
As part of the package you are given time to discuss your procedure with himself, and both a nutritionist and psychologist of his choosing with specialised experience with weight-loss surgery, Dawn and Dr. Moffet were both completely attentive and invested in my choices and reasoning for selecting a VSG and all three agreed that it was the best option for me.
Weight-loss surgery is not an easy way out like many claim it is; I just wish I had the oppurtunity to do it years ago
