William J. Roe, Jr., MD
DR. Roe is a amazing. He is very straight forward, and not your typical \"white coat\" DR. He is himself, and I love that about him. rnFrom the moment I met him, you could tell that he knows his stuff, and his respects and cares for his patients deeply.rnrnHis office staff is wonderful also. I love the fact that I am in and out at my monthly check ups. rnrn
Latest Surgery Support Comments
I am a 33 year old wife, and a mom to 4 beautiful girls. My husband and I have been married for 13 years! I am 5 ft 8.5, and at 271 lbs. My health is not horrible, but I want it to stay that way, and avoid the complications that come with being someone my size. As you will see, I don't come from the best "stock" LOL! There are many overweight people in my family including both my parents.
My dad died in 1999 at age 56. He died from complications of a heart attack. he was overweight, a diabetic and generally unhealthy. He was also my best friend, and the best daddy I could have asked for.
My mom died in 2005. She was 50. She had lupus and was also overweight. My mother was my "better" half. She and I were so close and I know that I will never be the same woman again. However her strength lives with in me, and it is for her and my daughters that I must get control of this demon.
My sister Misty, is the one that sent me the information to this board. She had her surgery today! As I write this. I know that big sisters are supposed to be the strong ones, and lead the way, But Misty, my baby sister, has taught me something about courage and stength. And know as I start this journey, Misty you are my inspiration. You are an amazing human, and I love you with all my heart.
As I said I have 4 awesome daughters. They deserve a Mom who can be there with them, and I want to end the pattern of dying young in my family. So it is for them, and for me that I say today is the day I resolve to take my life back. Food will no longer control me. With or without surgery, I will take control back.
