Surgeon TestimonialKeith Millikan, M.D.Fortunately, I was familiar with Dr. Millikan prior to seeing him regarding WLS. He is very easy to talk to and gave me quite a bit of information concerning WLS both pre-and post-op. His office staff is very friendly and his assistant, Lisa, is extremely pleasant and familiar with the surgical procedure. My husband and I met with him and he discussed the risks of surgery in detail and in laymen's terms. I believe he is an excellent surgeon and very competent.

O.k., so I am learning a lot of stuff about human nature...there are indeed those who are miserable in their lives and feel the need to make others miserable...just so they won't feel so alone. Well, I'm here to let you know...keep your miserable mess to yourself!
Folk who are envious of others have no place in my world...folk who allege to be your friend, yet stab you dead in the back, as they sit and talk about you like you ain't shit...have no place in any circle of mine...I say...take your mess somewhere else...I'm going to do me...I'm going to be me...after all, I am who I am, dammit, whether you like it/me or not...it doesn't matter!
I have always been a person who celebrates others' blessings...when a person receives good news - I congratulate them! When someone has made a breakthrough - I commend them! I encourage others to liberate themselves. Why? Because after years of emotional and verbal abuse, I liberated myself by taking myself out of the situations that would hinder me from becoming what God intended for me to be! I turned that thing around and said...ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! No more...I am hereby taking MY life back!
Today, I reflect on "Look where God has brought me...look how far I've come...I'm not what I ought to be...but I'm not what I used to be...THANK YOU LORD, FOR WHAT YOU'VE DONE!!"
Now if you think that I think I'm "all that" - well guess what...BABY I AM ALL THAT...AND THEN SOME!!! I don't have time for haters...I don't have time for naysayers...I don't have time for folk feeling they have to negate my blessings. Life isn't fair to most of us...but if people would concentrate on "what God has for me, is for ME..." rather than "why can't I have what he/she has...what have they done to deserve...(you fill in the blank)...well perhaps, just perhaps...blessings would begin flowing your way as well.
So, just in case you didn't know...DONNA LOVES DONNA...and DONNA doesn't need anyone to justify WHO OR WHO'S SHE IS...in other words...I've got this!
