Robert Quinlin, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Dr. Quinlin has been, by far, the best surgeon I have ever met. I've undergone many surgeries and have found Dr. Quinlin to have a compasionate side that many surgeons do not have. He makes you feel as though your questions and concerns are valid and will take the time to answer anything you want to discuss. Although I was nervous for surgery, his competence made me feel so much more at ease. I've had a set back or two with narrowing and he handled the situation quickly and professionally. The office staff is wonderful, friendly and handles all my wierd phone calls,lol. Sara the dietician is the next best thing to Dr. Quinlin.

My story? Never thought i'd write one but there's a first time for everything. I am 37years old, married and a mom to my son Zack (11) and my daughter Lindsay (3). I have been overweight all of my life. I always walked that fine line between morbidly obese and obese. I was the "odd" pregnant women who never gained a pound through both pregnancies and lost about 50 pounds after the births only to regain it all, plus some within the year. It wasn't until the birth of my first child that I noticed tumors developing randomly and quickly in my body. After the 6th one was removed I shared the frustration with my surgeon and he said weight loss could possibly help the growth of these tumors. Now although I was overweight, I was an under eater. I rarely have an appetite and eating is something I have to force myself to do. Loosing weight was next to impossible. I tried it all like almost everyone else. Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Nutri Systems. I would loose about 4 pounds and bam, 10 would come right back on. When the surgeon suggested gastric bypass I told him I figured I never qualified since I had no co-morbids but with a bmi of 42 he felt it was possible. I contacted Pittsburgh Bariatrics and saw Dr. Quinlin. Even with the 6 months of nutrional couseling and supervised diet I only lost 5 pounds. I had my gastric bypass (Roen-en-Y) on Jan 8, 2008. I've always been the laid back and behind the scenes person who gave it all and then some but now i'm ready to get my game on!!!
