Surgeon Testimonial

Donald Waldrep, M.D.
1st Impression: Real life McDreamy
Impression over time: Still McDreamy, but a little goofy too
Office Staff: Friendly, helpful; but make sure you stay on them about disability
Like least: NOTHING; I LOVE Dr. Waldrep!
Future patients should know: He is a TALL, SKINNY man, but one who truly understands what we're going through!
Aftercare: It is mentioned NUMEROUS times that you have to commit to your follow appointments, and dietary guidelines.
Risks of surgery addressed: He has the blue packet which outlines EVERYTHING that can go wrong, it was very informative!
Rate him overall: 10+
Both surgical competence & bedside manner are important, and Dr. Waldrep has plenty of both!

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I went through my teens trying every diet imaginable. Nothing worked, and by the time I reached my late 20's I realized I was an anti-diet person. I was at a point where I said no to everything. I said there was no diet that would work for the rest of my life, so why try. Also, I didn't think I had the willpower to "diet", I was a closet eater. If no one was looking, I would stuff my face!

I am so thankful for my pouch.  Yes, I used to be able to eat the whole bowl of stuffing myself, and enjoyed more than a few slices of turkey, and almost a whole can of cranberry sauce, and don't get me started on the pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, etc. but I am so much happier than I was when I could eat all that (and more).  I guess what I am trying to say is don't mourn the fact that you can't eat even half as much as you used to.  Enjoy the fact that you get to eat, be merry and not pass out at the end of the meal.  (Or pop a button off your pants). :)  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
