PATIENT TESTIMONIALS

 
 

When I made the decision to pursue bariatric surgery I was apprehensive about making an appointment and feeling nervous about discussing my struggle. The minute Dr. Reising entered the room and shook my hand I knew I had made the right decision.  He was very kind and put me right at ease.  He discussed my options very clearly and explained his expectations of me in the process.  My surgery went very well and his care was phenomenal.  He has been a great support during my journey.  He goes above and beyond to give his patients compassionate and quality care.  I could not have asked for a better experience. Kelly

 

"Dr. Reising was very knowledgeable regarding my surgery.  His compassion for me was outstanding.  He was also a great comfort for my family and friends.  We still keep in touch." Roxanne

 

"Dr. Reising is genuine and caring.  He took the time to talk me through every part of the procedure and what would be expected with the surgery.  He is completely accessible to his patients and makes sure you're completely comfortable every step of the way." Brad

 

"I had parathyroid surgery and Dr. Reising was my surgeon.  He was great.  Very informative, thorough and kind.  I felt very comfortable with him and confident.  Everything went well and the post-op was fantastic.  He explained what went on and was fantastic." Dianne

 

"Dr. Reising is a "top notch" doctor as well as a brilliant and confident surgeon who is absolutely nothing short of an expert in his field.  I can honestly say there is not a more kind and caring doctor than Dr. Reising.  He was very kind and compassionate toward before, during and after my surgery." Kevin

 

"I am a Wausau Wisconsin resident and I have been a surgical patient of Dr. Reising for the past year. At the age of 78, I was diagnosed with esophagus cancer and subsequently, I underwent an esophagectomy to remove my esophagus as well as the reconstruction of a portion of my stomach to form a new esophagus. This procedure entailed a 7-hour robotic surgery, which was unquestionably profound to say the least."  Robert

 

"During the consultation, Dr. Reising told my family and I (face to face - and I quote), "I will take care of you as if you were my own father." At that point, I knew he cared and I was able to put my trust in him......., Dr. Reising is a man of his word. Because as far as I am concerned, and as far as my family is concerned, he really "did" take care of me as if I truly was his father." Bob

 

"In November, nearly one year after my esophagectomy, I also needed a hernia repair, which went very well and resulted in a quick recovery thanks to Dr. Reising." Melvin

 

"Dr. Reising continues to go above and beyond the call of his daily duties to take such great care of his patients. He fully explains the situation in terms we can all understand. He continues to be a wonderful comfort and at just the right times. KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK!" Helen

 

"Dr. Reising is the best doctor I have ever had in my life. He is straight forward and tells you exactly what is wrong, what is happening, and what to expect. His bedside manner is fantastic as he is very understanding and yet forthcoming. He takes his time with his patients and he has a well structured aftercare program." Marjorie
