Ravi Moonka, M.D.
Dr Moonka is kind and soft spoken, very knowledgable and ready to work through any concern you might possibly have. His staff is awesome and will bend over backwards to help you out. I am very happy that i had him as a surgeon, and he was a replacemnt for a surgeon i initially went to see at Saint Francis, I was MUCH happier with Dr. Moonka.

This is the beginning of a new journey for me. I had always been a "not skinny" kid growing up, but as soon as i got pregnant with my son at 18 the pounds started adding on. I think i had gained 80 pounds and never lost it. Pregnancy with my oldest daughter wasnt as dramatic, i had gained 30 and kept only about 10 on. Many gym memberships later i was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer in December of 2003....as many of you know losing weight and thyroid problems do not mesh well. I have gained so much weight in the last few years that i stopped looking at the scale. A year and a half ago i had gone in to have a consultation with a surgeon and it looked like we were working towards me getting the surgery, I was getting really nervous and thinking maybe i had second thoughts. Chris and I had talked it through and said the only thing that would keep me from getting the surgery is if i got pregnant. Low and behold 2 weeks later i found out i was pregnant. My miracle baby, not only had i not gotten pregnant in 6 years and had no thyroid, I GOT PREGNANT... i had gotten pregnant with my youngest daughter Bethany for a reason. So now that she is almost 10 months, I am kicking it back into gear. I have a wonderful supportive family, a loving supportive husband... and im looking for a overhaul on my life.
