What our bariatric patients are saying.

"Life altering. One of the best decisions I've ever made. Dr Maynard and his entire staff have been more than supportive. They all genuinely care about you as a person. I started out with a different surgeon at a different hospital. So happy i walked away. Dr Maynard took the time to consider what was best for me as an individual. I would recommend Surgical Associates of Metro Atlanta to anyone considering weight loss surgery. I was also pleased with my experience at Piedmont Walton Hospital."

Linda Sullivan

"Dr. Maynard was my saving grace, and answered prayer. An amazing doctor and staff. Very professional, explains everything so you understand it, and answers all your questions. SAMA bariatrics is always a comfortable atmosphere. Best decision I ever made. I could never THANK them enough."

Melba Jane

"My husband had the surgery at this hospital. Dr. Maynard and his staff were excellent from the beginning of all preparation through the surgery and the post bariatric care. I stayed with my husband overnight in the hospital - all the nurses were terrific taking care of him. Excellent care!"

Gina Caceres

"Dr. Maynard is awesome! Great customer service, awesome bedside manner and very knowledgeable. He patiently explained everything to you, making me feel comfortable about this bariatric care plan for my life."

Twana Person

"Dr. Maynard and his staff are simply the very best at what they do. As a patient, you want to feel confident in the doctor's abilities and that of his staff. They do not disappoint. You become family to these people. The predictive analysis of where you should be in your work up to and after surgery shows the great amount of experience of the entire team. They are the best."

Rick Caceres

"Do not be concerned about the size of Piedmont Walton Hospital. The staff is close knit,kind and caring. As is Dr.Maynard's staff who cared for and motivated me to success. I cannot say enough about Donna and the office staff. Kenna is the best dietitian I have ever run across. She made me understand what and how to eat to lose weight and be healthy. I am diabetic I have run across probably 15 to 17 dietitians. Kenna with the first dietitian to explain things in a way that I could understand and help me be successful. Choose this group of professionals believe me you will not regret it."

Mike Haulk

"I was very apprehensive about doing weight loss surgery, even though I desperately needed it. After meeting Dr Maynard and his caring staff, I felt so relaxed, reassured and informed, as I journeyed towards my surgery date. The entire staff, exhibited nothing but the highest standard of professionalism while going through every aspect of their program. I highly recommend Dr. Maynard and his team to anyone considering weight loss surgery."
