My first impression of Dr. JB was that he really cares about his patients. I have never seen a Dr. that actually held the support group meetings for his patients. I was completely impressed. He is outgoing and thorough. His concern is the patient not the paycheck! His office staff is top of the line. They are efficient and polite. They are there to answer any questions you have. Dr. JB, if he was rated on a scale of 1 - 10 .. he would be a 15. He is so informative on all the information you need know concerning before care, risks that can occur during surgery, and aftercare. He has the surgical competence that you want in a surgeon and the bedside manner you wish all doctors had! If you are looking for a Bariatric surgeon... GO SEE HIM.. he is worth it!!!!

My name is Christine. I am 29 years old. I am the mother of two beautiful daughters who are 7 and 9. I am on my second marriage to the most wonderful man. I have struggled with my weight all of my life. I turned to food for comfort as a young child at the age of 7. I had a rough childhood. Noone was there to supervise me to tell me not to eat the foods i was eating. I only heard that i was too fat and should lose the weight. At that age i did'nt comprehend it. I had mistaken food for love. When i turned 18 i lost all of my weight. I weighed 145 pds. I was happy but i didnt lose the weight correctly. I would eat once every 3 or 4 days. At this time i met my 1st husband and i started eating again and i gained 20 pds. Shortly after i became pregnant with my first daughter and i soared up to 350 pds. I stayed like that for awhile and then became pregnant with my second daughter. I managed to lose 20 pds during the pregnancy. I give thanks to my cravings of ice! lol After that my marriage started going sour and i dropped down to 225 pds. I did'nt eat right due to the stress. Again i lost it the wrong way. Today i am at 242 pds. I have managed to stay at this weight for the past 4 years. I have'nt gained yet i have'nt been able to lose either. My new hubby and i started discussing bariatric surgery about a year and half ago. He also has a weight issue and has severe sleep apnea. We decided to go for it. We went in August for our consultations and decided this was right for us. We both want to live long happy lives to see all our children.. i have 2 and he has 2 from our previous marriages .... grow and have families of their own. Not to mention i want to grow old with my husband. He is the love of my life. I just can't imagine life without him. As of right now we are just waiting on the rest of my paperwork to go back to the doctors from my insurance company. We were told that we should be able to have our surgery at the end of February. I have to say i am on a rollorcoaster of emotions but not in a bad way.
