Geoffrey Nadzam, M.D.
Dr Nazdam was a joy to have. So nice to be able to a doctor as comfortably and honestly as it was talking to him. The man knows his stuff and it shows in the way he puts you at ease. That pretty much sums it up. The day of surgury I was at ease and quite comfortable with what lay ahead. Post op has been great as well and I think both he and his staff are wonderful. On a scale of one to ten Dr. Nazdam is an eleven!

Well, Guess I have to start at the begining of my "Journey". Have been overweight for most of my adult life. Bad habits and inactivity pushed my weight up to 409 pounds > Was a Type 2 Diabetic and had high blood pressure. My wife had WLS in in 2003 with not very good results. Worked fine at first but she slipped back into old habits. Decided to get the surgery in 2005. Made the forst appointment to go to an information meeting as St. Ray's in New Haven in January. Liked what I learned there and made an appointment with Dr. Nazdam. Weighed in at the first visit at 409 with a BMI of 58. We Talked about the surgery and decided to go with it. Had all my tests and got approved so my surgery was set for March 29th 2005.
Dr Nazdam is a great surgeon and was quite at ease whenthey wheeled me into the operating room. Paid attention to the "Rules" of the pouch and learned what happen's whenthey are not followed. "NOT GOOD"! Started excesizing and eating properly with my new stomach and the weight started droppping off. tHis definitly isn't an easy way to lose weight, but you get out of it what you put into it. Am now 18 months out and still losing slowly and looking forward to my to my next surgery to remove exces skin around my waist. Started out at 409 pounds. Am now 214 pounds!!!!! So many great changes, Have never touched Dibetes meds or blood pressure meds since surgery. Just had my Physcal and everything was "PERFECT"!!!!! This has changed my life totally for the better andI have saved my son from going thry my fate as we both go to the gym, eat right and keep busy! THAT is the Biggest and Best Achievment for me! My sonwill not grow up fat !
Now life is all about enjoing this new life "WLS" has given me and will do just that! As soon As I canfigure out how to post pictures on my new profile I will add them, Take care and Remember nothing is impossible as long as you belive in yourself and work hard at it! Take Care All!
