  • Very caring and knowledgeable staff. They made the entire process stress free and answered all my questions. They worked with my schedule as I drive six hours away to get my surgery done. No complications and aftercare communication was prompt and professional. Seven months I went from 300 lbs to 212! I’ve still got work to do but I am so appreciative of all Alabama bariatric has done for me!!

  • I found them to be friendly, kind,and helpful. Dr.Harner takes the time to help you understand your condition and uses terms you can easily understand. He always asks if you have any questions and takes the time to answer them. Dr. Suggs had operated on me two different times and they both turned out very well. I would recommend them to everyone.

  • I cannot recommend the folks at Alabama Bariatrics enough! They have a travel patient program for patients like me. I live in Kentucky and made the trip to Decatur/Huntsville, AL and had the VSG procedure. I arrived on Wednesday and went home on Saturday. They will help you do as much as possible at home and send the information to them. It saved me so much time and money. Dr. Suggs is top notch and his staff is superb! No regrets except that I didn’t know about them sooner.
