David C. Voellinger, MD, FACS, FASMBS
So in the beginning I wasn't sure what to expect from Dr. Voellinger. Working at the hospital I have heard both positive and negative things about him. My personal opinion is that he is great! His office staff is wonderful, most have had WLS or been overweight before so they really understand the struggle. Dr V himself is very patient and laid back. He never makes me feel rushed or like I'm over reacting due to being a bit controlling. LOL He did a wonderful job on my surgery! The office wait times can be horrible but as long as you come prepared it's well worth it!

I have struggled with my weight my entire life. Even when I was younger I would yo-yo btwn chubby and chubbier. I was in a normal range there for a while as a kid but once I hit 17 it started again. I have been obese for 7 straight years and spent 2 of them morbidly obese. I weighed 268 at my highest. I was able to loose some weight to be down to 230 and have been bouncing btwn 220-230 for a few years. I know what a toll it is taking on my body. I feel it in my knees and back. I do not want to have a heart attack, get diabetes or more knee problems. I know these things can be prevented if I can be healthy and lose weight. I am lucky enough to be part of a clinical trial that will allow me to have WLS with a BMI below 40 and no co-morbidity illnesses. I consider it a blessing and know that everything happens for a reason. I am looking forward to this journey and can't wait to be healthy and Lord willing live a long life!
