From the moment that I met Dr. Hoeltgen he has been absolutely amazing. I've struggled with my weight for the past 25 years. I've tried everything to lose weight and just couldn't on my own. After consulting with Dr. Hoeltgen I decided to have the VSG surgery on July 19, 2019. It has been the best decision I've ever made in regard to my health. Dr. Hoeltgen walked me through all the steps I needed to take. He always took the time to take and answer any and all questions that I had. One thing that I loved the most about him is that I never once felt like he was judging me for being overweight. He truly cares about his patients and is our biggest cheerleader. If you are thinking about having any sort of bariatric surgery I would strongly encourage you to talk with Dr. Hoeltgen's office. Not only was he outstanding as a doctor, his staff is amazingly supportive. Thank you, Dr. Hoeltgen for giving me the tools I needed to lose weight.

I had a gastric sleeve procedure on March 19, 2014. While everything about the surgery was a success, the post op support from the team at Barrington Surgeons has been the real vehicle to change my life. I owe Dr. Hoeltgen and the entire staff a huge debt, it wouldn't be a reach to say that they saved my life!

Dr. Hoeltgen was very kind and spent time talking with my wife and I about the procedure. You could tell that he was knowledgable and had plenty of experience. Not only was he kind but also compassionate about my needs. I am looking forward to working with him for many years to come. Thank you, Dr. Hoeltgen.

Just returned home from Good Shepherd for bi-lateral hernia laparoscopic surgery performed by Dr Wool and I can't say enough. Dr Wool realized the excruciating pain I was in and was able to fit me into his tight schedule within a week of my initial visit to his office. Virtually everyone in his practice were professional, efficient & very pleasant. Thank you Dr Wool for making an unpleasant situation much more pleasant and for relieving me of such intolerable pain as quickly as you did.

If you need laparoscopic gallbladder surgery, this is the place to be! Great caring staff and Dr. Hoeltgen is talented and caring and takes the time to inform and answer any questions. I am healing very quickly and I doubt there will be any visible scarring. Thanks!
