Darren Tishler, M.D.
He was very claming, made me feel comfortable and didn't made a remark on how bad it is to be heavy , but let me know there is help. Every time I see him I feel more comfortable. He lets you know he really cares about you as a person and he is there for you. His staff is just as wonderful. I have given his name and number to many of my firends and they know I must like him because I don't like doctors.When ever you have a question and you call they will not push your call away they will answer you. I would rate Dr.Tishler and his staff and everyone at Hartford Hospital Bliss 8 all wonderful, caring, loving, and they a A # 1 100++++++ rn THANK YOU DR. TISHLER

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I have tried all different diets. I would lose about 20 lbs. and be super happy then I would gain 30-40 lbs and get depressed and gain more.

Hi I'm Joanne, 56 years old. Married 2x.. mother of 3 amd Grandmother of 6.
I have been heavy all of my adult life...starting right after my first child. I would try to lose on other diets, lose 20 then gain back 30-40. I got so tied of this up and down way of life. But when I saw my older sister roll off the rocking recliner chair that made me look at myself even closer. A friend of mine had the Lap banding done and I saw her changing. So without anyone knowing I got information from her and started looking into this. Whe I made my own mind up then I told my husband, Lenny, what I wanted to do. I was excited and he told me he would help me in anyway he could. That's why I called Dr.Darren Tishler's office. My first visit was in December. I got on the scale 277. OMG!!! I have never been that big...scale must be broken! Wrong!!! Time to face the truth. Dr. Tishler was so nice and calming. He answered all my questions and treated me like a person. Then I stopped eating potatoes because I could eat a whole pot of them myself. I also stopped drinking soda, after that visit. But when he told me to drink water!! That was like a curse. I HATE WATER!!! But since I'm going to do this I will do it..My insurance went through the first time and that shocked me because I was suppose to do 6 - 1 hour monthly visits and I only did 4...but they did!! I lost 30 lbs. before surgery. My surgery was 2 days after my 56th birthday...April 30th....Ihave lost 18 lbs. since the surgery, because I had 2 hernias taken out too.(knew I had 1 but not the other,) I am feeling like a new woman already. I do something I thought I would never do walk, walk walk. The only thing I had a problem with was one night I turned over on my stomach in my sleep and the next day I HURT!!! I am fine now. I would love to hear from anyone, I promise to answer all e-mails.
