REX Bariatrics is such an amazing and life changing doctors office. When considering weight loss surgery, I searched every option in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area and found this office to provide the most in-depth support before and after surgery. After attending the information seminar, I knew I would be in good hands with any of the drs but chose Dr. Sharp, who was a great motivator. He was understanding of my struggles, easy to talk to, had a great bedside manner, and I had complete trust in. I am over 2 years out from surgery and still have the continued support of Drs, PAs, nutritionists, and staff who really care about continued weight loss and maintaining health. I love that I still have support groups, cooking classes, seminars, and classes I can attend on a weekly basis. I would absolutely recommend REX Bariatrics to anyone considering weight loss surgery.
