Demesvar A. Jean-Baptiste M.D.
Dr. JB is a great guy! I went into the office for the first time on 9/27/05! I was really nervous. Thinking that they would push me away. Maybe say I was just on the border! BMI not enough to get the surgery. I was scared and didn't know if the doctor would look down on my b/c I was obese! My first impression was NOT like any of those bad thoughts at all! Dr. Jean Baptiste talked to me like a was his friend. I was very comfortable. I had many questions. He took all the time I needed to answer them until I felt comfortable enough with the answer. rnrnThe other staff were all very warm! Very friendly. I didn't feel uncomfortable at all. Even my first phone call to schedule the apt. I spoke to Bonnie and she helped me get onto the website and everything. rnrnThen there is John! He's the food guy! He's sooo funny! We get along good! I always come in there with all of my crazy questions and vitamins. He always has an answer for me! No matter how off the wall I am! I think and talk to much! rnrnI was open to both procedures, the lap band and Lap RNY, but leaning more towards the band. DR. JB explained both procedures to me! Showed me the pros and cons of both! He never pushed me one way or another! Just gave me the facts and said we'll work with what we have and I'll get the best out come possible!! I was very excited! I couldn't wait to start my pre opt testing!!rnrnIt was stressed to me the whole time before hand that this is a tool and by no means is this a solution! It's a solution to being obese as long as learn how to use my new tool and keep up with it! I was told that I can easily gain weight back if i don't do my part! Which is making the right food choices, exercising 3-5 times a week for at least 30 minutes a day! It was also stressed that afterwards my body would need stuff that it always has, but will need to get it differently! So I was told from the very begining about the different vitamin suppliments that i would need to take for the rest of my life. rnrnThese guys don't sugar coat it for you, I feel they are honest with you and let you know what to expect. They also won't let you get over on them! If you're not on track they will let you know! rnrnI would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone! They have a really good program and I believe that if I follow the rules and do my part, my surgery will be a HUGH success! Thank you to my doctors who are looking out for me! rnrnMary Kate C.
