Michael W. Blaney
Dr. Blaney and his staff are all wonderful. I was really impressed with his bedside manner. He has taken very good care of me through everything. He takes time to listen and I never feel rushed even though he is a very, very busy man. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give him and his staff a well deserved 10!!!
I am 30 yrs old and I have 3 beautiful children. One girl who is almost 15 and 2 boys 10 and 7. I have been overweight all of my life and like everyone else I have tried everything and some things more than once to lose weight. I have wasted alot of money on diets, some of which worked for a little while and others that was just that, a waste of my money. The best success I ever had was on the Atkins diet in which I lost a little over 50 lbs and was able to maintain it for about a year and a half until I began having severe feet and leg cramps that would wake me up in the middle of the night b/c they hurt so bad, even though I was taking all kinds of vitamins. After that I had to go back to my old eating habits, which of course put the pounds back on and some extra. I had gotten real used to being able to do more things w/ my children without giving out of breath. And it was a lot easier to find cute clothes in 16/18 rather than 22/24. I miss having extra energy, I miss walking 2-3 miles a few times a week, but most of all I miss taking bike rides with my kids. Right now I am so embarrased by how I look that I don't go out in public unless I absolutely have to. I hope and pray that I am approved for this surgery so that I can start my new life as soon as possible.
