I never thought that getting the procedure done would be so easy. The staff is awesome, they are always very helpful, they make you feel at home and they genuinely care. Dr. T and the rest of the surgical staff are great. The procedure was done perfectly w/no complications; pain was moderate to non-existent and no swelling.

So far I’ve lost 21 pounds and I haven’t ever started w/ the adjustments.  It’s very exciting.

Great work.

Had my procedure done Oct. 7, 2010, and started at 340 lbs. I am currently 285 lbs and feel great. My blood pressure was terrible and now it is normal. My cholesterol was high and is now normal. I had had to buy new clothes due to the weight loss and I still have more to go. My goal is under 250 lbs so I am not too far off.

Miguel L. 2011-2-26

So far, my experience has been a pleasant one. I’m still trying to get used to the portion control for eating and drinking. I’ve lost some weight and can feel the difference already. I have a little more energy to do more physical activities, but still have a hard time doing certain activities with my children. The staff at all facilities have been very friendly, helpful, and supportive throughout my experience so far. I look forward to continuing my weight loss and would like more information about cosmetic surgery after I reach my ideal weight.

Thank you!

Everyone is so nice and so eager to help. They are there for you in the mornings or evenings or any time you have a question, or just want to talk about your progress. Right away I started noticing results, I just followed the advice and the weight started coming off. All my family and friends tell me that I’m looking great. That also has help me keep going. I can’t wait till I’m at my goal weight…
