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
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
