Timothy V. Chavis, M.D.
I met with Dr. Chavis and I was very impressed with him. He seems to be a caring doctor and he answered my questions truthfully. I have heard wonderful things about him anyway and I was told by one of his gastric bypass patient that he had wonderful bedside manners and he made sure that you are treated with the up most respect while in the hospital.

My name is Michelle and I am 36 years old. I am married with 4 wonderful children who's ages are 18,14,7&5. the 2 older ones are my stepsons who I love dearly. Then there's my 2 babies who I have spoiled. I have been overweight everysince I was a teenager and my weight progressed into adulthood. After I had both of my children, my weight skyrocketed. When I first started this journey, I was at my highest weight of 330 lbs. During this summer, we had a Carnival to come to my hometown. I'm seeing all these "healthy" people getting on the rides and I decided that I was going to get on the ride too with my daughter. I was thinking in my mind that they were bigger than me or I was about the same size and if they could get on it, then I could too. Well needless to say I got on the ride and the bar wouldn't close over my stomach. The attendant was nice and tried to pull the bar down hisself and when he gave me "the look" I knew that I had to get off. I found a teenager to ride with my daughter as I stood back looking and embarassed. I knew from that point that something had to be done. I have a few friends who had the surgery and they all said that their lives have changed and you know what I am ready for a change.
