Steven C. Poplawski, M.D., F.A.C.S.
My first impression of Dr. Poplawski was \"What an excellent person!\" He talked to the whole group in the beginning but it felt like he was talking only to me and that he understood just what it felt like to be sitting in my place. He spent plenty of time with my husband and I discussing the RNY procedure and what the aftercare would be like. I feel completely confident that he is the only Doc to do my surgery. He is a straight shooter but his level of empathy and respect for his pt's is notable.

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I was a mess. I lost and gained HUNDREDS OF POUNDS over the years. I hated myself. I shied away from mirrors, and eventually began staying in the house so people wouldn't stare. I was ashamed of myself, and didn't want people to see me like that. It was a nightmare, living nightmare from which I never could wake up.

My story is not unlike many others. I am a 31 year old wife and mother of two beautiful boys. I am a registered nurse with an excellent career. Sound good so far? Here's the catch.I have been obese all of my life. At least since I was 7 or 8. I can remember weighing 170# in 6th grade. I never fit into regular sized clothing. I have never felt comfortable in my own skin. I have never weighed less than 180# as an adult. I have been tossing around the idea of bariatric surgery for 5 years now but didn't really feel ready to do it until 2 years ago. At that time I had Priority Health insurance and they have a written exclusion for WLS so I was pretty much shot down when I attempted the referral process in 2004. I have since changed jobs and I now have BCBS Community Blue PPO and I think I am going to make it this time. I am excited and impatiently awaiting for my journey to begin.
