On March 16, 2016 my life forever changed thanks to the help of a wonderful Doctor and Surgeon, Dr. Jay Patel. I have to admit, my health was a mess and I felt completely worthless, but after consulting with Dr. Patel on wls, I decided on a gastric sleeve. I was 262 at my highest weight, now a little over 2 years later I am 137 lbs and feel amazing, and I have maintained for over a year now. Dr. Patel is such an awesome surgeon, great personality and beside manners...he went over the procedure with me completely, answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable, plus his staff were awesome in scheduling me with everything I needed done prior to surgery, and their support is still the same today! On my last visit, he expressed how impressed he was with how well I have done, and made me feel awesome! I feel like I have myself back plus so much more. I'm no longer on the sidelines of life but right in the middle of it, enjoying my family and participating in all sorts of activities that were once too humiliating for me...I smile all he time now! My family also appreciates all the support I have been given by Dr. Patel and his staff. If you are feeling hopeless and are looking for that quality back in your life again, I highly recommend you schedule an appt...I promise, it will be the best decision ever!
