I got a duodenal switch (DS) in June of 2020 and have already lost 100 pounds! Doc Carlton and Allison are phenomenal and literally saved my life in more ways than one! During my DS surgery, Dr. Carlton didn't just do the surgery and be done with it....he took his time and discovered a hiatal hernia and also successfully repaired it at that time. Unbeknownst to me, a week later, I was back in the hospital with another hernia that was causing me all kinds of issues that hid its ugly self during the initial WLS surgery. Dr. Carlton found it and saved my life, yet again, by going back in a week later and fixing that major hernia at that time. SO, he saved me twice! I cannot say enough good things about him and his staff! He and Allison are always there for you, never rushing, always willing to answer questions no matter how big or small and they make you feel like a million bucks in more ways than one. They also know their stuff when it comes to insurance and will work with you to get you approved if it is at all possible. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Carlton, Allison and LoneStar Bariatrics for all your weight loss needs. THEY ARE INCREDIBLE and all of them have hearts of gold!!
