Hadar Spivak M.D.
As some of you may know I am the Director of Dr.Spivaks Wellness Program held every First and Third Tuesdays there at his office. I just wanted to give you an update and invite all of you who has never been to the program to please come out and let our newly banded family hear your stories. OR, if you have had the lap band and are at a plateau, come out and let our encouragement and knowledge help you get back on track. We have had lots of people who have lad the surgery in the past and was at a stand still, they came to the meeting once and are now losing weight again, we see them at every meeting now.I am so proud of ALL of our attendees!!rnrn I too, am one of Dr.Spivaks many satisfied patients as well. What made me choose Dr.Spivak out of the other 4 doctors I visited (since I was cash pay)?? His experience, his kind heart, the ability to make you feel at ease and one of the most important things ...hope... he gave me hope...something that none of the other doctors gave me. I was at the lowest point of my life at 330 pounds and in extremely poor health. With the creators of the lap band, Dr.Spivak and my hard work and determination, I have lost a total of 165 pounds. I have went from a very unhealthy size 28 to a very strong healthy size 6. No, I am not skinny or thin, my bone structure will not allow this and plus everyone is different, but I am extremely happy with my results in losing 11 sizes!! rnrnI have not had any complications with my band. I have been very compliant with the rules Dr. Spivak has put for everyone.I feel since he was the first doctor in Texas to preform the band and has basicly trained all the other doctors, what better doctor to go to, as well as his knowledge is MY power to succeed! rnrnSince my weight loss, I have had so many opportunitiespass my way.I went to the greatest Plastic Surgeon in Houston, Dr.Lior Heller, I had a breast lift and augmentation as well as a small tummy tuck. I have been on the TV Show called Modern Beauty, I have made a commercial for On-Q. And I am part of one of the largest modeling companies, this is just to mention a few.The life I have now, was not even in my wildest of dreams. It has helped my self esteme and self confidence.rnrn Now, my goal is share my story, to let people know there is \"Hope\", there is a way out and it does work. To educate about obesity and the underlying causes, its effects on us mentally, physically and emotionally as well as its effects on our loved ones. There are so many people out there so quick to judge someone on their size and looks, with out even knowing the \"cause\". In my case, I was robbed and beaten for 12.00,I had 2 back surgeries and a knee surgery, this 3 1/2 year ordeal made the weight pack on. But to other I was lazy, they would say \"Just push away from the table\", well, that did not do anything but make the depression worse.rnrnIn closing, I would just like to state, Dr.Spivak, his entire office staff, the Wellness Program is a great combination. I wish every one the very best of success and I hope to meet you all at the Wellness Program. rnrn'WE ALL WALK WITH THE BAND FOR A NEW QUALITY OF LIFE\"rnrnSincerely,rnWanda ChasernBanded:5.19.2005 at 330 poundsrnTotal Weight Loss: 165
