Dr. Cribbins is a great surgeon. I am very happy with the results of this tool. After surgery, his nurse called and checked on me. I was able to personally email Dr. Cribbins about questions or concerns that I had and he responded quickly to my emails. I have been able to get to a healthy weight within six months and I feel and look so much better. The handbook that the office provided has been very helpful and informative. The information provided prior to surgery from the dietician has helped me tremendously in this weight loss journey.View on Google
