Jeffrey T. Landers
I met my surgeon today 9/4. He seemed to mutter a bit, and he was younger than I anticipated, but I felt comfortable that he was more than competent. The only member of his office staff that I met was his medical assistant Robin. But in an earlier orientation today, I also met the bariatric program case manager Julie Grimm, and the Accomplish Weight Mgmt program director, Wendy McKennon. I liked them all very much. Robin had also had the gastric bypass and looked great.
Aftercare was highly important to Dr. Landers and there is a program with Accomplish Weight Management for 12 months of nutritional counseling.
Dr. Landers did address the risks of the surgery and discussed that if the lap rny did not look like it would work, he could do an other procedure. I would rate Dr. Landers very highly, of course this was my first meeting. Surgical competence is much more important, at least as far as my insides are concerned! He took time to answer all my questions and explained all to me.

I have struggled with my weight since I was 8-10 years old. My Mom called me "pleasantly plump", a term I came to hate. All my friends were normal weight and height, and I was short for my age (growth hormone deficient) plus overweight. At 35, I was probably 135# (I'm 5'1" tall). When I married at 50, I weighed about 180 and now I weigh 190. I only reached a low weight once, and that was with Phen-Fen, which gave me mild mitral regurgitation. I got down to 116# but couldn't keep it off.
I love to travel, play with my grandkids, enjoy my 4 dogs, 2 cats (one is`
