    Thanks for the wonderful interview with the Drs. Garth. Their plans for their new bariatric clinic sounds wonderful. I am sure it is very much worth a visit and be wonderful if you could do a segment on it when is completed.

    I am so excited about the education of PCP’s because I hear so many stories about patients finding their bariatric docs through word of mouth. As one of them told me, if you don’t give your patients some guidance, they will self refer to a bariatric doc. It only makes sense to offer their guidance because the PCP will be dealing with their patient for a long time. I just love Dr. Garth and his dad. I’m so excited about their new venture and I’m looking forward to seeing much more! Thanks for allowing me to share camera time with you Craig and Chef Dave. It was a very exciting week!

    It was so good seeing Dr. Garth since the last time I saw him in Feb. The awareness and energy he gives makes me more comfortable that this is the right decision for me. Thank you so much for airing this!!
