Surgeon Testimonial

Noel Williams
Well I have finally gotten to meet with Dr. Williams. I immediately got the impression that he is caring and takes all the time necessary to describe the surgery and answer any questions. I don't think that I will have any problems, he definitely gave me the impression that I will go through this surgery fine(he actually told me so). It was very comforting.
I think that he is highly qualified and his staff is all very nice. They are all very competent at their jobs.
They all emphasis aftercare, which is soo important. I liked that, that they want you as educated as you can be, then help you through the whole process.
The only thing I think I can say that I didn't like was the 3hrs I had to wait to see him. But I guess if he didn't have soo many people waiting for him, he probably wouldn't be that good of a surgeon. I feel he has a good bedside manner and excellent surgical competence. But I guess I can comment more after I have the surgery.

POST OP- I am so glad I went with Dr. Williams, he is an awesome surgeon and a very nice man. He doesn't let things go to his head, he is very personable. He visited me a couple of times while I was in and his staff visited me daily. I received such great care from everyone at his office and no question was stupid. I can't sing their praises enough. They saved my life. And here i have a clotting disorder, they took very serious and I ended up having to have a filter in and everyone was awesome. I think now after being post op I would give him a rating of 98 (nobody is

Hey Everyone,
I know long time no hear!! I'm sorry I haven't been on, things have been crazy...with my sister passing on and family issues....well anyway I'm still here.
I had to block my account for awhile, there was some crazy woman (who knows someone I know, not a stranger) was getting info on me off of this site so I
blocked it for awhile, hope the craziness is gone.
Anyway, I am creeping up on my 3yr anniversary of my surgery!! And I would do it again in a heartbeat, for real!!  I have gone through alot of changes over
the past three years, and I am now finally getting a grip on how to listen to my body and I am doing good.  I have given up diet mountain dew....was tearing my stomach up, plus helping dehydrate me.  But now I can again drink water, yippeee.  Anyway, over the summer I had gained about 10lbs back and it started freaking me out, but you know what, my tool is still with me and I was able to go back to basics and you know what, it came back off. I am sooo grateful. 
The only thing I wish that i could change is the amount of extra skin I arms have toned up some, which I am glad for, it took time for my weight
to settle and redistribute I guess. But my panni is all soft and squishy, I tuck it in my pants, if i didn't have that I know i would weigh alot less and probably could wear size 4 or 6 pants. Oh well, I can't take a chance on having another surgery because of my blood clotting issue, its not worth risking my life over some loose skin.  I had the wls because without it I would have died, so it was well worth the risk.
Okay, I've gotta go and I will update again later. I really want to put together some concise thoughts and feelings and really moving points from these past
3 yrs and then post them.
Thanks so much for being here everyone.
I will keep all of you in my prayers, everyone who is suffering from or ever suffered from an eating disorder.
