I just wanted to celebrate EVERYONE at NVSA. Had my appnt today and I swear I feel soooo good after my appnts. Got to chat with Dr. Ludwig and Dr. Simchuk (two totally cool guys)… and the office staff . . . AMAZING- luv you gals. . . I’m so blessed to know all of you! Thank you ALL for giving me my life back!

I started my weight loss surgery journey with another Dr. in Sacramento. I went through everything and was waiting for a surgery date and was not comfortable with how I was spoken to or treated whenever I called the office – lots of heavy sighs and no clear answers when I asked questions. After a lot of soul searching I went to a seminar and afterwards an appointment with Dr. Simchuk. I do not regret my switch in Drs. Not one bit! The staff has been so helpful and encouraging. Not one time has anyone sighed like i was imposing on their time and all of my questions have been answered. I wwrite this now because I had to call the other office today to verify tax info and sure enough I got a heavy sigh and snippy “hold on”. I didn’t expect a warm how are you but I thought just maybe something had changed. It hasn’t. I called Dr. Simchuk’s office and once again you are happy and helpful. I know not every day is a good day but we as patients would never know it! Thank you to all of you for being such nice people.
