    Alaska Foot & Ankle Specialists
    I went in January and March I had two separate surgeries. There was good follow-up care and they made follow-up phone calls. They are pretty open to any concerns; I can call them up 24 hours a day. I was pretty happy with them. Everyone seems pretty knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. I think that they should feel pretty confident that they are in good hands.

    My surgery went as well as possible. My breast scar is as small as it could be and with due care healed beautifully. The axillary (armpit) scar where she took nodes is hidden within a fold of skin so it is nearly invisible. She did a GREAT job and was very careful to inform me every step of the way about my options and what the latest research suggests. My husband refers to her as "Ninja Doc" because he was so amazed at how minimal the damage was to my breast. Quite frankly, she is the best.

    Todd, Dr. Michael A.
    .I've been going to see this surgeon for nearly four years. He does an adequate job. Sometimes the office can be a little hectic and unorganized because of his popularity. His after care program is excellent.

    Brandner, Dr. Micheal D.
    Dr. Brandner did a beautiful job with no complications, good price, and thorough follow up. My only disappointment was the stitches. They were visible around nipples even when healed. Not real obvious, but noticeable. Maybe he can sew better these days.

    Todd, Dr. Michael A.
    Doctor Todd is the most unprofessional doctor that I have ever worked with. Four years ago I started seeing him. He strung me along for a year. Had me do every text in the book. Then two days before my surgery he called and said that he could no longer be my doctor. He gave no reason. Months later when he was asked again why, he still wouldn’t answer. Three years later I had three referrals sent to him from three of my health care providers. He sent back a form letter with a box checked that said “case closed”. So I called Debbie one of the nurses at the Alaska Bariatric Center about three week ago to ask why he denied me again. Debbie had no answer. After a long conversation she said the she would pass my message along to Dr. Todd. Needless to say she never called back! Today I called her back. 5-30-2012. I told her I was kind of expecting a call back. She tells me that Dr. Todd said no that he would not take me on as a patient. Again I asked why. She tells me that he just said no. You would think that a person has a reason for saying no. So she transfers me to Dr. Todd. I was thinking that finally I would get my chance to tell him how hard that I was working to prepare for a weight loss sugary. All he could say was no we are not a good fit. What in the h*** does that mean? I’m not looking to be best friends with the man. How can anyone with a conscience say that to a 440lbs man in his mid 40’s that has as many health issues as I do. I have had Diabetes for 31 years. I was diagnosed when I was 13 years old. I have had a very hard time controlling my disease, and because of that I now have many, many complications because of it. I didn’t start gaining weight until I was in my mid thirty's. In 2006 I was told that I had a heart attract. I also have had several eye surgery's and I am in need of more because I now have Cataracts do to the previous surgery’s. They can’t do my Cataract surgery because of my weight. Dr. Todd is aware of most all of my medical issues, and still refuses to help me or even tell me why he wont help. I have told him that without the weight loss surgery I wont live much longer. All he could say was “best of luck to you”. Over the last three years my Doctors and I have found out some of the reasons why I put on so much weight so fast. We are addressing those problems, but that alone wont fix it all. Dr. Todd wouldn’t even take the time to listen to everything that I have been doing or what was discovered over the past three years. He just angrily said no and hung up the phone. Again he gave no reason why. He did say that I should try going to Seattle for my surgery. Dr. Todd Is the only Center of Excellence in Alaska, and he knows it. I’m disabled and Medicare will only allow me to go to a Center of Excellence to get a weight loss surgery. Myself and many others, including medical professionals that I have talked to think that Dr. Todd has a major God complex and is very had to deal with. Why would anyone allow a single doctor to become a Center of Excellence all by himself? I have talked with other Center of Excellences and they all have multiple doctors. This is something that I am continuing to research. I see no reason why this man can not help me. Below is a pasted copy of something that Dr. Todd has written about himself on his own website. After training, Dr. Todd was in private practice in good standing, specializing in General and Hand Surgery, in Pittsburg, California. He decided, much to the surprise of his partners, to move to Anchorage, AK in the fall of 1998. While there, it became readily apparent that there was a population of morbidly obese patients in need of Bariatric Surgery. Dr. Todd pursued additional education in Bariatric Surgery, culminating with his completion of the American Society for Bariatric Surgery Preceptorship at the University of Tennessee in Memphis, July of 2000. (Please visit the ASBS website at He is now seeing patients interested in Weight Loss Surgery (WLS) at his Anchorage office Dr.Todd is absolutely right. There is a population of morbidly obese patients in need of bariatric surgery here in Alaska and I’m one of them. So why wont the man help me?!!! I’ve done everything that he has asked of me and more. Why does he get to decide who lives and dies? He’s not God! If he were compasionate enough to just tell me why he won’t help me then maybe I could work on what ever he thinks is wrong. The more time that goes by the more my health deteriorate. I’m 44 years old I’d really like to see at least see 64 or more. There are other people out there that have bad experiences with this man. I would love to hear from them. Maybe we can make a positive out of such a negative. Please share thisFeel free to contact me Please put Dr.Todd in the subject lineThank you Dan Diamond
