Fred Simon M.D.
My first impression of Dr. Simon was that he wasn't very personable. I was a little shy and reserved about asking questions, but as time went on I became more comfortable. Plus I would rather have a surgeon who can answer every question for me and make me feel comfortable with the surgery than a surgeon who is just being nice. The other staff members in the office were a big help too. The nurse I worked with, Patricia, was absolutely amazing! She had so much patience when it came to me asking a ton of questions. Patricia really helped me through the whole process. rnMy experience with Dr. Simon's office was a good one.

Well I'm 25 years old, and have pretty much always been overweight. When I was younger it never bothered me, mainly because I never knew it was a problem. When I started middle school is when I think I began to realize just how important looks were to society and my peers. Ever since this point, I've had low self esteem and zero confidence. In high school it didn't bother me as much just because I had great friends that loved me for me. Because of being big all of my life, it was hard to be happy in a relationship because I wasn't happy with myself. I've tried almost every diet you can think of, done every type of excercise; I've lost weight, but not enough to make a difference. Once I gained weight, I usually stayed at that point for a year or two.
I started thinking about WLS a few years ago. I've realized that I'm young and now is the time to get serious about my health and do something about it. The whole process of getting approved was so nerve-racking for me. And the faster my surgery date approached, the more nervous and anxious I became.
I just had the surgery on September 24, 2008 I still feel anxious and nervous. I can't wait to start seeing results and becoming more healthy. I know I will have a better life.
