We're getting this thing down to a science. Surgery a success. Current weight loss good. 40lbs to go until it's time to level off and start maintenance. When I had a scare involving my stomach recently, Dr. Faulkenberry came to the hospital and they (my GI doc) did an endo to see what was up. All was fine in the end, but I appreciated his care. - .G

Well the information was pretty much the same as I received at St. David's except for the brain disease. The class felt rushed and I did ask a question in the form of a story. I need so much more information because I have acid reflux and heartburm. Found out that i would need a gastric bypass instead of sleeve. I'm having second thoughts. - RHONDA M NEWBURY

Dr Faulkenberry wasn’t my surgeon, Dr. Sherrod was my surgeon but has since retired. Dr. Faulkenberry was the assisting surgeon during my gastric bypass which is why I chose him to continue seeing me through my post operative care. He was very nice and encouraging! I definitely recommend him if you’re looking for someone who will treat you with care and is very knowledgeable and experienced. - .D
I like & trust Dr. Faulkenberry. He's thorough in his examination and explanation of the process and procedure, but easygoing enough to answer tons of questions and laugh with you.

Dr Faulkenberry literally saved my life. He is the best doctor to have on your team of healthcare physians/surgeons. He is the best Bariactric surgeon in Central Texas, if not the state.

I am extremely happy to have chosen Dr. Tim Faulkenberry. The clerical personnel in his office are the very best, they all treated me with the upmost respect.

Me hernia was repaired and I am on my way to a very successful recovery without any issues.

My experience has been wonderful, Dr. Faulkenberry, Jerry E. , office staff, and the entire team of doctors and nurses at St. David’s took excellent care of me before, during, and after surgery. Ami, with Bariatric Center was very helpful, she made sure all my questions were answered. Happy Holidays! Love and Peace. 🎅🏻🎅🏻🎅🏻🎄🎄🎄 - .B
From pre-op check-in to post-op checkout, I was impressed at how professional, thorough, communicative, and just nice Dr. Faulkenberry and his crew were. Dr. Faulkenbery gave me complete confidence in the surgery. Nurse Amy is a pure treasure. It's obvious she is passionate about helping their patients be as comfortable as possible and her follow-up was amazing.St. David's facility is top-notch and very clean. The shift nurses were amazing, very professional, consistent in their processes such as taking vitals, allocating meds, and making sure I was up and active. They were true all-stars. The techs were just as passionate about my care. I enjoyed 2 nurse techs in particular who happened to be Asian and obviously rookies. They completed their rounds well but at hyper speed and with a little self-doubt. In other words, trying a bit too hard to complete their responsibilities perfectly. I believe they will be excellent techs and I enjoyed their humorous spirit. Each of the nurse supervisors made their rounds, encouraging me to share my experience.Overall, I give everyone 5 Stars and will share my story with my friends and family. - .B
You are amazing as always - .M
It's always nice to visit with Dr. Faulkenberry!! - .F

The best - JULIE A CURRY
Very professional - LAWRENCE R HARDAWAY
I can't rate him high enough. He tells you what you need to know in a no nonsense way and is always willing to answer questions. My scarring is as minimal as possible. I was initially concerned because the practice seemed to focus on bariatric surgery and i was dealing with cancer, but after having him do my surgeries, I shouldn't have been concerned. I trust this guy. I can't say anything better than that. - CHARLOTTE WILLIAMS
This asks about Dr Faulkenberry but I included staff cordiality which did drop score from 5 to 4 - TOBY HATTON
He listened and answers all my questions. He was caring and had no judgment. - EVA T IVEY
I never have any issues when I come for my appointments. Dr. Faulkenberry is great! Staff is friendly & I rarely have to wait very long for my appointment. This time however, I did receive a call about a couple of hours before my appointment to see if I could come in sooner. I work & it's south of downtown. So distance, traffic & the fact that I have to request my time off ahead of time where I work, made it a bit difficult. I was able to get there about 40 minutes sooner. If I can I am glad to. - .M
Friendly staff :) Dr Faulkenberry was kind and very personable. Extremely professional . - GABRIELA LLAMAS
Bedside manner fantastic,knowledgeable, understanding, interested in the patients welfare. - GRACE I LOBERMIER
Great experience - MARGARITA CANTU
Basically all is great. - .O
Doctor Timothy Faulkenberry performed my gastric bypass (and repaired a gastroplasty performed by another surgeon in another city) in 2006 and has faithfully followed me twice yearly since then. During the surgery, I had some unexpected bleeding and Dr. Faulkenberry's expertize and quick thinking saved me from any number of calamities and had me thanking God for such a great surgeon. Not only is he a highly-skilled surgeon, but he is also a very intelligent doctor. Recently I developed an unknown problem and was seeing a gastrointestinal doctor to discover what was going on. After all the tests were run, the gastrointestinal office proclaimed that all my tests were fine and--as a band-aid--I was put on long-term meds that left me sick from the side effects. As a backup measure, Doctor Falkenberry received these same reports and x-rays. Consulting with Dr. Lough (a colleague from the same surgery group,) they both saw on the cat scan an esophageal problem that the other office completely missed. The main reason Doctor Faulkenberry is a doctor/surgeon that I highly recommend is his kindness and caring. He is genuinely interested in the welfare of his patients. I have never known him to be judgemental (something I have seen in some physicians caring for a morbidly obese patient.) I have lost 80 lbs and nearly 130 lbs since my journey began. I feel that thanks to Dr. Timothy Faulkenberry I am a new person. It is like he gave me my life back. He is the best! - .F
I love all the staff Dr. Faulkenberry and all the Dr's, and office staff. (Sandra Alejo is a Angel!) I had issues after the surgery... blood pressure dropping real fast (within 30 days) and extreme nausea.. and it was around the time the Dr. was gone (end of May) so I couldn't get in to see him till June... and then in July but as soon as I got in everything was taken care of fast. Oh, and had some issues getting FMLA paperwork back in the beginning. I would recommend him and staff and facility to everyone. Great job! - .M
My experience with Dr. Faulkenberry and his staff could not have been any better. He takes the time to give a detailed explanation during every visit. Gloria, his assistant was also extraordinary. Every time that I called in with a question Gloria made sure to track down Dr. Faulkenberry and got me a quick response.If you are in need of a great Gastroenterologist, your first call should be to his office. - MARTHA N GONZALEZ
Always a very pleasant experience - EVELYN Y PATTERSON
Never had a bad experience!! In and out of office every time! Dr. Faulkenberry is a great doctor and helped me with my issue!!!! - KRISTAL VEGA

Love Dr Faulkenberry - JUANITA L DAVIS
Nothing to add. - .B
Seems like this is all taking longer than it should to get the appointments for the referrals and tests that Dr Faulkenberry requested. Some of the referrals do not see a need for rapid response, it seems. Dr Faulkenberry and staff have been outstanding. - .G
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Faulkenberry. I called on Monday for an appointment, went in on Tuesday and had surgery on Friday. He removed my gallbladder, repaired a hiacial hernia and did a fundoplication for my Gerd. He was very nice, knew what he was doing and has great bedside manner. He is obviously an A doctor, meaning he was an A student rather than a C- student. Not all doctors are the same as we all know! - VALERIE V LESLY
Working with Dr. Faulkenberry has been as painless as the surgical process can be. He told me what was going to happen and after, his skill was evident. I have had minimal pain and discomfort from the surgery. He's a straight shooter and tells you exactly what you need to know. I would choose him again. - .W
What can I say My brother-in-law found Dr . Faulkenbery for his daughter and to make a long story short. Dr. Faulkenbery Did my brother-in-law’s surgery and his daughter which is my niece and me we all 3 had sleeve surgery and all have had great results. I like Dr. Faulkenbery because he takes time to answer your question and he is a general surgeon also and he fixed a huge hernia for me. I constantly had heartburn and to me that was worth having the surgery ! He is very professional and so is his staff and he is kind, sweet hearted, and he has help change my life forever when I couldn’t and I will be forever greatful! - .S
He is very knowledgeable and his bed side manner you want fine on any better he is kind and he makes you feel comfortable and wants you to be the best you for you ! I can’t say enough good things about him or his staff I love his nurse Sandra she is so sweet - SHANNON E SHARPE
Very good bedside manner. I was very pleased after my consultation. He answered every question I had and made sure I felt comfortable with my decision for my future procedure. - KELLI D SCHWAKE

Awesome experience. Dr. Faulkenberry explained the procedure and answered all questions without rushing through things. Great follow-up. - SUSAN AVANT
Excellence in every way! Thank you for not only being an excellent professional, but for caring about your patients. Your staff goes over and above to support your patients and that is truly appreciated. - .S
Everyone in the office is wonderful--extremely professional and helpful. Both Dr. Faulkenberry and Jerry Elizondo are excellent listeners and provide information fully and clearly. One problem I encountered was delays due to people going on vacation just at the time I needed to do that consultation--so even though I started planning the procedure on June 1, it didn't happen until August 20. My recovery is going fine so it looks like I'll be OK for the start of the semester but the uncertainty was a bit stressful. I especially want to call out Christi who was heroic in coping with my primary care physician who refused to follow the instructions for formatting the release letter. - .C
Dr. Faulkenberry is so wonderful and I feel he is invested in my success! - .W
I am very impressed with how quickly everything goes. Everybody is courteous. It was a pleasant doctor's appointment. - .J

Dr. Faulkenberry is a very nice approachable doctor and his staff such as Mitchell (advocate) is always available and always answers all calls in a timely fashion. - .R
Wonderful! Has taken care of me for over 2 years - JANE M RANDOLPH
Had some complications after surgery, Dr. Faulkenberry and his partners were great every step of tge way. Scheduling is always easy, and can usually be seen quickly. Appointments are always on time, hardly any wait ever. Dr. Faulkenberry is always very attentive and knowledgeable! - TRINITY A LINDSAY
Great experience, everyone is friendly and helpful - .B
I gave 3 stars for facility, because the building for check ups seems to be old and out dated. I have a 3 star for scheduling because there are only a couple of optionsOther than those 2 things 100% would recommend to everyone who think about choosing this team. The Doctor and his team are very knowledgeable and kind! - .W
Dr Faulkenberry was great from beginning to end. - VIRGINIA A THERRELL

I am very impressed with the follow up care after surgery. I am now 2 1/2 years from surgery and am still being supported by Jerry and Dr. Faulkenberry. Am very pleased. I have recommended this clinic to two friends who have used it. One friend had surgery earlier this year and the other friend has been approved and is moving toward surgery this fall. I have mentored and supported both of them.Brenda Shirk - .S

The best doctor bar none! - TARA HOLLINGSWORTH
Dr. Faulkenberry and staff was excellent. Had a little trouble getting my FMLA paperwork back. Left message about feet swelling have not received call back yet. Surgery was no problem (was on pain study meds and had zero to none pain) had issues after ... blood pressure dropping too fast.... also nausea real bad... but both could have been avoided if I contacted office sooner. I could not get in too see Dr. Faulkenberry in two weeks due to nausea... then he was out so it was more like four weeks before I saw him after surgery.. by then nausea was so bad couldn't eat or drink.. (I should have called and ask for assistance). Would recommend to everyone. - .M
Explained everything fully and I've never had to wait long - PAMELA S EMERSON
Dr. Faulkenberry is by far the best surgeon I have had. He takes his time and listens to you. His bedside manners are excellent. I would definitely refer all my family, friends and (patients as I work in the medical field) to him! - MICHELLE P HERRERA
This has been a stellar experience. Dr. Faulkenberry has done an excellent job all the way around. Through this I have been treated with the best of care and I could not ask for anything more.

Dr Faulkenberry was quite attentive in general to my care. Additionally, he was diligent about my anesthesia since I had difficulty in the past. The anesthesiologist was excellent as far as I could tell and kept my family well informed after the surgery as did Dr. Faulkenberry. In general, the Bariatric Program, including dietitians & exercise physiologist were excellent. The psychologist was well informed. All the written materials were useful. I have no complaints, only praise! Mary Scharold, MD - .S
Great people, great medical care, great service. - MARIJO R HARTMAN

He was great! Personable, professional and knowledgeable. - AMANDA L BATY
Dr. Faulkenberry and his team prepared me well for the operation and have been supportive and informative in the post-op healing. Dr. Faulkenberry has great rapport with his patients, and you can tell he has had a lot of experience with this type of surgery. I would highly recommend him not only for the Bariatric surgery but also general surgery. - .R
Very polite - JESSICA AGUILAR
I am very satisfied with Dr. Faulkenberry. He is one of my most favorite Doctor's. I have been a patient of his for 2 years now and I think he is great. His staff is also wonderful. When someone has asked me how I lost the weight I tell them about Dr. Faulkenberry and Southwest Bariatric team. I have recommended him many times. He really changed my life and I have been all the better for it. - .G
I have written two articles for THE ELGIN COURIER on the gastric sleeve procedure and its effect in my life. I forwarded a copy to Anna Hadlock on Wednesday. I also gave a copy of them to Dr Faulkenberry during my recent visit with him. I know it is unusual to have a newspaper columnist as a patient, but since these stories are thorough and positive, I encourage you to take advantage of them. - .P
Dr. Faulkenberry is a gentle giant. Made me feel completely comfortable during the entire process. His patient advocate is patient and great! Some members of the reception could be a little direct and use a little empathy when speaking to patients. But most are great. - TOSHIKO RIVERS
I had a conversion surgery from the adjustable Lap Band to the Sleeve Gastrectomy. My surgery and recovery have been largely without pain while preserving my mobility and lifestyle. I had wonderful pre-operative instruction, both dietary and surgical prep, and the same held true for my post operative course. I will have my first in office post op visit next week. I have been very satisfied to this point. Dr. Faulkenberry and all of his staff are par excellence! - .S

I really appreciated the respect and care shown by the staff as well as Dr. Faulkenberry. It meant so much to me that Dr. Faulkenberry took the time to kindly explain my condition, listen to my concerns and help me evaluate my situation.

Dr. Faulkenberry is professional and kind. He never made me feel shy or uncomfortable. I always had a million questions for him and he answered every single one.

It's been a long haul since contacting this office in Dec. for an appointment with Dr. F., at the enthusiastic recommendation of two former pts/neighbors. He is immediately likeable, trustworthy and clearly has a great bedside manner. Your team obviously includes Valerie Castro and the folks at her office. She is both likeable and equally competent, answering tons of questions. Jerry Elizondo was also thorough, and his handouts are a roadmap through the 30-carbs-a-day pre op diet to appropriate vitamins and supplements. A visitor from Mars could follow these instructions. The pre-op pre-op on April 2 was useful, meeting again with Valerie, an RN and an anesthesiologist. As a veteran of five surgeries in 2017, I knew pretty much what to expect on anesth., but still learned more. What was NOT made clear at the beginning of these interviews and "steps," was exactly when the "30 day window" would begin. I assumed incorrectly that is was immediately after the first visit with Dr F., so I had labs, psych eval, EKG done ASAP. Then I learned on April 2 that since my labs were more than 60 days old, we'd have to do them again. No problem; I have great veins. Someone just needs to say , "Your 30-day period begins here.......(cite date).The notion of hydrating just before surgery is WONDERFUL---it eliminates a raging headache on an empty stomach. ESR also looks interesting. My wife has been conscientiously following the 10-day diet plan (mostly). I look forward to April 9. - D.P
Friendly staff with a patient focus! - TAMMY L MILLER

Dr Faulkenberry (and everyone at his office) is amazing. They are professional and friendly and always go above and beyond. Debra and Jenna are awesome, especially because I am a high anxiety person. - .R
I waited very little time - Dr Faulkenberry was pleasant & prrofessional! - .S

Going in and checking out is very easy. Dr Faulkenberry treats you like family - .C
Dr. Faulkenberry and staff are fantastic. With each visit, I'm reminded that I made the right choice when selecting Dr. Faulkenberry's office. - .G
Could not be more satisfied with the Doctor and the results! - ANTON.K
Dr. Faulkenberry and his staff were excellent and provided good pre-op information, did an excellent job of surgery with no pain as a result, and thorough follow-up. The hospital (St. David's on 35th St. and IH 35) provided excellent care and all staff, from nurses to janitorial, were very professional and friendly, especially at a time of stress. The hospital was being inundated by flu cases at the time of my surgery. - .C
Everyone seemed friendly but it would be a perfect visit if the check out lady would be helpful and not just there for a paycheck. It would be expected to be friendly with the patient and not short only because she's doesn't want to explain the appointments needed prior to a surgery procedure. - .G
Facility and staff was great. - .B
Mitchell has been absolutely amazing during the whole preauthorization and insurance approval process. He is always extremely friendly and caring on the phone. - .P
Always enjoy Dr. Faulkenberry and his staff. He answers all of my questions and reassures me, when I have doubts. Thank you! - .V
I had the pleasure of returning to SW Bariatrics on Tuesday, February 20th to meet back up with Dr. Tim Faulkenberry. I was greeted by Deborah, then Nurse Sandra, next Jenna and ultimately Dr. Faulkenberry. Before I could even get signed in ... Nurse Sandra was ready for me. I had a nice conversation with her, she listened with the intent to 'care' and I didn't feel rushed; I was then greeted with a great big hug from Jenna!!! We go waaay back to 2008 when I first received the Lap Band...love this woman!!! Dr. Faulkenberry is always a perfect gentleman...always speaks very candidly, honestly and I leave with a good understanding of what to expect. He shoots straight from the hip. I'm ole' skool and I can certainly respect his knowledge and wisdom in the Bariatrics arena. I am looking sooo forward to my next procedure performed under his leadership and by his hands. A wonderful experience to say the least. Mitchell Furr is an outstanding advocate. Unbelievably polite, the perfect gentleman, well-informed, very knowledgeable of his job and patient as all get out. I am a happy patient- - - love them like I love my Michael Kors Handbag!!! HA!!!! Good group of people - - - they go above and beyond the call of duty even when that place is running over full of patients. - ESTHER M COLVIN
Great experience - .H
Dr. Faulkenberry is a fabulous doctor and surgeon.... - .S
This was an organized process from education through surgery! So highly professional and one ingredient was so positive throughout the process---all of the staff cared about me--and my success. Genuine caring is something that you don't see often! I felt comfortable with each step of the process and knowing that I had the resources available for questions and direction continues to be a definite asset. Thank you for making a life changing decision easy to accomplish. Helen Dale Simons - .S

I am so glad I was referred to Dr Faulkenberry at Southwest Bariatric Surgeons! The entire staff had been wonderful!! They have helped me every step of the way! - .C
My Advocate Mitchell has been very helpful. I think I like dealing with him more than the ladies that answer the phone in the office. I can’t wait for this time next Year hopefully will be 100lbs. Less and can excercise more and won’t hurt in so many areas of my body! - .S
Great service love the staff all very helpful - .M

Faulkenberry has given me great treatment and lifestyle change. - .H
The front desk staff could be a little more friendlier. They always give you the impression that you're bothering them. - .P
My Nut appt with Jerry was great. I wished I had asked more questions about the % of of patients with horrible side effects...like exploding diarrhea... which I found alarming. - .R
Dr. Faulkenberry was very concerned about my weight loss, since my back surgery, ordered blood work, and the need to increase my protein and calories to gain more weight. You and your staff rate 5 Star on everything. - .W
Dr Faulkenberry was recommended by two friends who are former patients. After I learned that Medicare gave the OK (they're already sending me "Get Well Soon" cards), it was just a matter of going through the process to get to surgery. My wife and I liked Dr. F. immediately---great bedside manner. When he said "You're a perfect candidate for this surgery" I was reminded that none of my four wives have ever said that I am perfect about anything.Anyway, getting on track with St. David's can't come soon enough. I have made an appointment with my psychiatrist for his eval. We have extended family members who have had the procedure (in Michigan), and are quite happy with it. My friend who was the referrerer has said "Follow the Dr's instructions TO THE LETTER and you'll be fine." Perhaps some money could be made selling "I'm A Sleever" T shirts with appropriate artwork on the front. Anyway, I know that saying my goal is to drop 100 pounds sounds glib, sort of like saying "I'm going to have my teeth cleaned next week." I know it will be a long and sometimes painful process, but at this point in my life, the sleeve seems to be the best/only option to get all this weight off (Sorry, Oprah), and I DO eagerly look down the road a year to being healthier with reduced problems with diabetes, high blood pressure, excessive weight on a Charco foot, depression and cholesterol numbers which could be better. Starting out now with a BMI at that magic number of 40, I eagerly look forward to returning my weight from my college days: around 165.(My medical conditions aren't supposed to be mentioned here, I see, but since they are the prime reason for the surgery, how can they be omitted? My life is an open book) - .P
The only thing I was sorely disappointed in was that I was not allowed to continue my follow up visits after I moved. And I could not get another provider to see me for follow up because they did not do my surgery. So I have not had any follow up since my move. I think that I should have been allowed to continue my follow up care at my own expense. - .S
Dr. Tim Fulkenberry is an excellent doctor & surgeon. And I recommend Dr. Fulkenberry highly. A few times the front desk staff has not been friendly and seem to be preoccupied with others things. Thank you Dr. Fulkenberry for the great care you have given me. - .M
Everything works perfect. Would recommend to everyone. - .G
Everyone here has been very helpful and professional! I felt very good about my choice for Dr Faulkenberry, I feel I will have a good outcome with my health situation after he performs my surgery . Mitchell has been great with his follow up I what I need to do next. - .M

Dr Faulkenberry did a great job on my procedure. He was very matter of fact and has a no nonsense approach. If you are looking for warm and fuzzy telling you only what you want to hear, he is not for you. If you want honest straight between the eyes approach he is your man. - .A

Dr. Faulkenberry & his staff are superb. The entire process was simple and easy. From his medical coordinator to insurance to Dietitian to scheduling and Medical Assistants.

Dr. Faulkenberry explained the procedure in an easy to understand language, and I felt that I was well prepared for this new adventure. I highly recommend Dr. Faulkenberry and his team for anyone considering this type of procedure. - .T

My experience with Dr. Faulkenberry and his staff from the very beginning has been wonderful. Dr. Faulkenberry gave me the ability to lose the weight I wanted and keep it off which is something I could not do on my own with the surgery. I have lost a total of 100 pounds. I had originally told Dr. Faulkenberry on my initial visit when he asked me how much weight I wanted to lose and I told him I would be happy with losing 60 to 80 pounds. I never thought I would actually lose 100 pounds. When people ask me what I did to lose the weight I am glad to tell them what I did and recommend if they want to have the same procedure to definitely go see Dr. Timothy Faulkenberry and his staff. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Thank you Dr. Faulkenberry and your staff for helping me. - D.G
The only thing I would change is how short the visits are post op. I just feel like it's so short and a waste of time. - K.A
Dr. Faulkenberry performed a Vertical Gastric Sleeve in late June 2017. The initial analysis of my situation, pre-op preparation, the surgery itself, and all follow up appointments have been very helpful. So far, the procedure has been a success and I am grateful I found Dr. Faulkenberry and his team. - G.F
My entire experience with Dr. Faulkenberry and the bariatric surgeons group has been excellent. They have been kind and helpful and beyond encouraging and with their help I've been able to reach my health and weight loss goals. And the surgery was a breeze, they educated me as to what to expect and I didn't have a single complication. - K.R
