Fairfield County Bariatrics
For those of you considering WLS, and are not certain which surgeon to choose, I would like to recommend my surgeon, Dr. Neil Floch of Fairfield County Bariatrics. Not only is he one of the top weight loss surgeons in Fairfield County, but also in the State of Connecticut as well. My experience from the seminar, to the consultation, and the actual surgery and post-op follow-up was completely flawless! Dr. Neil Floch is a leader in the industry when it comes to not leaving any stone unturned. I had contacted the office to set up an appointment, and was informed that I had to attend a mandatory seminar to educate myself on the procedures that were offered in his practice. Once I attended a very informative seminar, I made an appointment for an in-depth consultation with Dr. Neil Floch. After our consultation, I met with the various doctors, who examined me and also cleared me for my gastric bypass procedure. When I went back to Dr. Neil Floch to choose the type of procedure I wanted, I was given a quiz about the procedure I had chosen. He wanted to make sure I knew every aspect of my decision, and educated myself on this particular procedure. Fairfield County Bariatrics has been absolutely wonderful, and I know that I have had a fantastic outcome as a result of my choice of this surgeon, the entire practice, and Norwalk Hospital. Please don't go into this journey without researching your surgeon, their practice, and the hospital they are affiliated with. My outcome is very successful because I've done my homework and studied for this new lifestyle I was about to embark upon. My scars are faded if not completely invisible, and to look at me now, you would never know I had a weight loss surgical procedure performed. I was very attentive to the instructions given to me from Dr. Neil Floch's team. Fairfield County Bariatrics has a team in place that assists you every step of the way as you move towards a much healthier lifestyle. I met with his Nutritionist for an education on Bariatric eating, and I've also met with his Life Coach who conducts monthly support meetings at the hospital, and it's no cost to the patient to attend these support group meetings. When I came home from having my gastric bypass procedure, I did not need to take any pain medication, and was up and walking the same day I came home.It's very important to choose a surgeon, who is supportive, caring, and well-educated in this specialized field. You'll be assured and confident that your final outcome will be successful. Fairfield County Bariatrics has five different locations, which basically covers a good portion of the state for those of you who live either far North or far South, there's an office to accommodate your needs. Please look at all of your options, and google this practice on the web for further information. ]www.endtheweight.com

Dr. Gregory Geiger recently performed surgery on my right medial meniscus. The surgery went very well and I was up and walking within a few days. Dr. Geiger is professional, courteous, and genuinely caring. He’s a great guy and an excellent physician. His office staff in Fairfield is also top notch.The surgery was performed at Bridgeport Hospital, Surgease outpatient center and I also could not be more pleased with the quality of care that I received from BH throughout the entire procedure. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Geiger to anyone that is looking for a great orthopedic physician. Great job! Thank you.

Dr. Garrell is a very professional, honest and a very smart dr. He helps a lot of people especially when they don't have any insurance. He cares about his patient a lot and I've known him for almost 6 yrs. He has a great employees. I would recommend him in a heart beat than other doctors. He doesn't play game, he will tell u if there's nothing wrong with u or vise versa. He doesn't see patient just to take money from people, nope he is not that kind of person.

Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
