David Bruce, D.O.
My impression of Dr. Bruce is that he is very knowledgeable in the field of bariatric. His office staff is always professional and friendily and went beyond the call of duty to get me approved by my insurance company. Dr. Bruce also operated on my 18 year old son successfully. I felt that I was given all the necessary information to have the perfect outcome I had. I have lost 110 pounds and went from a size 20 to 4 and some size 2. He was always available to answer any of my questions or concerns. I would give him a favorable rating and would refer him to anyone in the Dayton area that is thinking about having bariatric surgery. I think that overall I want my doctor to have surgical competence over bedside manner because having him/her perform surgery will have a life time affect on me where as he will only be at my bed for less than a week and I can deal with that :). But I think Dr. Bruce had both surgical competence and great bedside manners. I really don't have anything negative to say about my experience with Dr. Bruce or any of his staff. Also Grandview Hospital staff was awesome also.

Today is September 26, 2008 and I have been a member since July 2006. I have never told my story and thought it was time I did. I had my surgery on September 6, 2006. At that time my weight was between 222-225 depending on the day. I had no problems what so ever recovering from the surgery. I was off work for about 4 weeks but probably could have return after 3 weeks. I was wearing a size 20 which was getting a little tight around the waist. But now I am happy to say that I am shopping for a size 2 or 4 and weight 117 pounds. I hope you don't mind but I would like to say that again. I am shopping for a size 2 or 4 and weigh 117 pounds. My whole life has changed since having this surgery. I am a 47 year old grandmother of two and I feel and look like I don't even have grown children. I wish I had done this years ago. Why did I waste my 20s and 30s and half of my 40s looking the way I did? (I will post pictures soon). I know there are people waiting for me to start gaining the weight back. They always tell you about people they know that have gained most of the weight back. Well I weigh myself every day and I have a five pound window that is 115-120. When I get closer to 120 I start pulling back with some of extra goodies that I eat. Yes I can eat a mini snickers and be fine. I attend support groups occassionally but find that people don't seem to beleive that I had the surgery even when I share my before and after pics. I don't have loose skin hanging even though I looked into have a tummy tuck a few months ago. But I decided against it for now. Well thanks for taking the time to read my story and have a blessed day.
