Steven C. Poplawski, M.D., F.A.C.S.
My experience with Dr. Pop was outstanding. He was personal yet informative. He openly provides all the facts and his initial seminar is worth seeing by anyone considering weightloss surgery...I even brought my mom back with me once I decided. Once she heard Dr. Pop, the majority of her anxiety for me flew out the window!! He has an amazing bed side manner...his confidence in himself and what he does best is obvious...and that is to work on the human body! He is gifted.
In my experience, he has a great sense of humor...and may not be the doctor for you if you are looking for someone who is always serious or clinical. He will also tell you like it is...give it to you straight...and does NOT hold back...so if you are too sensitive, you may want to seek someone else! He was a perfect fit for me.

My story is similar to others..I started gaining weight in elementary school. By the time I graduated high school, my prom dress was a size 18. From that point on, my weight fluctuated based on whatever diet gimick or pill I was taking. My wedding dress at age 28 was a 20. My weight ballooned with my first pregnancy and I knew I had to do something. I researched and knew weightloss surgery was the tool I needed to succeed. I knew I could do it....I just needed help.
I wanted to wait until I was done having children. I had my son in December 2010. I went to my consulation in June of 2011 (6 months post c-section). My lap RNY was 9-14-2011. At not even 3 months out...I have no regrets or doubts.
I did this for me, to feel healthy for the first time in my life...to not feel like each day I was making bad choices that would eventually end my life prematurely. Secondly, I did this for my kids. They deserve a mother that actively participates in life, not watches them from the couch....or walks as they run.
I started walking my dog 2 weeks post op. We are working our way up to being runners!! Right now, we can only jog for short periods of time...but I can already see the distance growing each time. Along with my goal weight, I have a goal distance for running!
