Christopher D. Joyce, MD
When I attended the seminar I knew Dr. Joyce was what I was looking for. He knew the problems of obese people and seemed to be very genuine in his concerns. rnI like his staff. What I like even better is that there is someone on his staff that has had WLS and can honestly answer questions because she really does know first hand.rnHe has structured aftercare. I would rate him and his staff a 10.

I'm 51 years old. I've been married for 31 years to a supportive husband and am the mother of three adult children. I also have four adorable grandchildren. I guess my story is like most, I was an overweight child who became an overweight, obese adult.
I am so glad that I have learned about lapband surgery and have started the journey to become healthy.
