Carl Lowe, Jr, M.D.
My first impression of Dr.Lowe that he was very warm and friendly, very easy to talk too. Over time it grew he is very understanding and caring. Welll some of his office staff is very helpful, there are a few but I will continue. I finally met him two weeks prior to surgery. Dr.Lowe is an excellent choice very knowledgeable. Aftercare is VERY important, he emphasises that very well. There is a structured aftercare program. All risks were laid out nothing was hidden. Overall I would rate im a 10. To be honest both were great even in the worst of times he still encourages you and gives you hope.

Since I have the guts to finally tell my story, I'll start at the begginning. I was not a very big child in fact at seven years old I only weighed 40 lbs and I stayed in the 100's all the way until I was about 15 years old and I hit a rough patch in my life. I was going through a really dark time and the only thing that relieved my pain was food. Working at Dairy Queen part-time didn't much help either. I continued on this road until I was about 19 years old. My weight had balloned to about 225 pounds and at 5'2 inches tall, I was miserable. I hated going shopping because everything I liked did not look good on me anymore and I couldn't keep up with the latest fashion trends because lets face it at 225 pounds nothing other than black looks good on a round figure. I went off to college and I was itimidated by all of the slim girls around me it was as if these girls were all sooo small. I then managed to get my weight down to about 185 pounds through very bad habits which I won't discuss. I continued on this path and I actually began to like the way I looked. My grades started slipping in school and I no longer had the energy I once had anymore and I became depressed and my comfort was right there to pick me up. I balloned back to about 220 lbs. After I left college I got pregnant OHHH brother!!!! and I was at my highest of 255 lbs, and I felt every bit of it, I then began restricting my diet and exercising I love pilates, but to no avail I just couldn't see my dream figure within reach considering I would have to loose over 125 lbs so I considered WLS. and this is where my journey began.
