My weight has always been an issue all my life. I’ve tried almost every diet out there and always wound up bigger than I was before I started. I knew I had to do something. My health was at risk. I was taking blood pressure and cholesterol medicines. I had knee and back issues. Walking was not only not fun, but becoming a challenge. My wake-up call came when I went to see my great nephew for the first time and I held him in my arms. I looked down at him and realized that if I did not do something drastic, I would never see him grow up and become a man. That was a life changing moment for me.

I met with the staff and surgeon at Mt Sinai. Instantly I knew this was the place I was going to have my surgery. Everyone was kind, informative and I never felt like ‘just another patient’. The practice is a 1 stop shop. They have everything I needed in 1 location…the Doctors, Medical Staff, Nutritionist, Dietician, Financial and Support Groups. Everyone at the Mt Sinai Practice has always treated me as in individual and with respect and support. I did a lot of research and I am so happy I chose this group! Today I am 100+ lbs down and have a renewed lease on life. No more meds, no more pains and a full life to live. Now I am confident I will see my new great nephew graduate from college and more! Life is good!
