Laura Choi MD
My surgery was on 2/29/12, Dr. Choi was awesome she came to visit me before the surgery and insured me everything was going to be ok. She also came to visit me after and the day of discharge. She is so sweet and caring of her patients. Thank you Dr. Choi for making me feel that I was in great hands.

This is the beginning of my new life. My story begins at the age of 13 years old, I was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes and hit puberty all at the same time. My hormones where out of wack and I began to gain weight. Through out the years I have been mocked, made fun of by family and school. One of the worse is going to my Uncles house during the summer and before entering the pool the words he would shout out were “Watch out Shamo is going in the pool and all the water is going to come out”. For years this would affect me to wear a bathing suit go to pools, beaches or water parks. In school and in my neighborhood the issue was if I liked a boy one of my thin so called friends would steal them. Going out with friends men wouldn’t look at me they would go for my thin friends. I have tried many and I mean many diets and exercise and none worked. I have expressed how I hate the way I look for years. I gave up hope when no diet worked. I have heard several times “you shouldn’t have low self esteem and you should walk with your head up high”. “There are heavy woman who look great in their outfits.” I don’t feel great or pretty. Going out with friends I have stopped that since they have great bodies and any outfit they pick look great and I look like I am wearing a potato sack. I married my childhood sweetheart and have a beautiful 3 year old named Haileigh she is my everything.
