Thomas J. White, M.D.
I really like Dr. White and his office staff. They really helped me get my surgery scheduled quickly. My job took me out of state and they have been so helpful in scheduling my visits and getting everything done.rnrnAs I'm sure you may have heard, Dr White is very quick and to the point but not in a rude way. I think he reads his patients and feeds off them. If he feels they know what is going on, he is quick and to the point but if you need more support, he is there for you too. I'm one off those who don't need hand-holding but the patient in the bed next to me sounded like she really needed support and he was very reassuraning to her.rnrnI can never say enough about Roxie and Sally and Beth and everyone from the office. They went above and beyond the call of duty as far as I'm concern.

I have been overweight my entire life. All of my sisters have been very thin. I was always considered the 'big' little sister. Like everyone else, I've tried every type of diet you can think of. And of course, they all failed.
I've been wanting to have this surgery for the last 5 years but everytime something happen. Either I couldn't take the time off work or my insurance at the time wouldn't cover WLS.
Last year (2006) I decided I would do the lapband surgery. During my pre-approval exam I discovered I was pregnant so I put off the procedure. Sadly we lost the baby in the second term, but unfortunately, I continued to gain the weight. By the end of the year, I was close to 300 lbs. I looked in the mirror and decided I had to do something. Liuckily, I had insurance that didn't have a WLS exclusion. So I decided to get the surgery as originally planned.
I found a really good doctor in my hometown (Dr. Thomas White) and he and his staff made a this a really easy process. From learning about the procedures and realistic results to helping with insurance approval and scheduling the surgery around my work schedule.
I'm currently 8 days post-op and looking forward to an interesting summer. I may not be in bikini this summer but I know I will be next year...
