Yep I was and there is a few others of us on here :-) I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr Adib. He certainly isn't the cuddle prop your ego up type- straight down to business and does amazing work :-) private message me if you have any other questions not suitable for the public forum! Best of luck with your op!

He is operates out of Wesley hospital and Sunnybank and i think Greenslopes as well his rooms are opposite the Wesley private hospital.

I'm choosing Sunnybank as its the closest to me i'm from jimmy. Where abouts are you from??

Hi Kimberley

I'm one of Dr Adib's bandits. He's a great surgeon and you are in good hands. As zimba has pointed out he's not lovey dovey best friend type and he's got a funny quirky personality but I can't fault him.

PM me as well if you want anymore info.

P.S not long to go now you must be getting excited.

Hi,

I was operated on Friday 26/8/2011 by Dr Reza Adib at the Wesley & was very happy with him & the surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone, he is very direct & to the point...tells you how it is, which I liked. He is also very helpful & gave me the option to pay 1/2 up front & the balance every fortnight....which was an offer I could not refuse. Very happy with the surgery as I have now lost 7kgs in 5 days :)

Cheers

John

Hi newlifgirl,

Congratulations on your decision! i was banded by Dr Adib at the Wesley on 4/3/13. I have nothing but good things to say about him. It has been one of the best decisions I've made. I've lost almost 17kgs so far. Good luck with your super fund.

Cheers,

Donna.

thanks Donna, wow 17 kg thats amazing its stories like yours that make me believe I am doing the right thing, there'a a lot of negativity out there about the band and sometimes I think maybe i should do the sleeve but its so final no going back ect.

Thanks and good work  

thanks Paula

Your looking great, congratulations on your weight loss.  I was just wondering what made you do the lapband instead of other surgeries ie. gastric sleeve. 

I to am going to Dr Adib but I'm waiting on an answer from my superannuation, the waiting is driving me crazy

After speaking to Dr Reza about all the different options out there...we opted for the band as I did not want something too drastic at this stage. Lucky for me the band has been good to me.

I start 2 week liver shrinking diet on Tuesday, the dietician said he's had 95% success with people who have done the band, but with the sleeve its just set and forget, and some people have trouble with the band the cost of fills etc. he was a bit negative about the band, and very positive about the sleeve.  Its just made me worry about wether I'm doing the right thing doing the band, I just wish he'd have kept his opinions to himself :unsure:

Hi, sorry I’m new to this, just wondering if anyone can tell me their experience with Dr Adib re gastric surgery? I just had a phone consultation ( as I will be flying to Brisbane for surgery) and It went for only under 10mins? I felt very rushed and now I’m unsure on whether to sick with this doctor. I am accessing super however have locked in a tentative date. Can anyone provide me with feedback? Would be much appreciated. :)

Hi Lanii444,

i had a consultation with him today too, he does rush and does t really like to be asked questions, i went back to ask about post-op complications and he was pretty short with me...luckily im used to dealing with drs so it doesnt phase me.  He seems to know what hes about, staff there were great, hope this helps
