Denis Halmi, M.D.
Dr Halmi and his staff are wonderful. Dr Halmi had performed the same surgery RNY on my daughter 7 years ago as well as her tummy tuck. She has lost close to 170#. I was amazed at the care they gave my daughter and for the entire time with her follow up visits. So when I was contemplating my own surgery this was a natural choice. Dr Halmi and his staff have been su pportive and non-judgemental. We came to a decision about what surgery would be best for me and went on with the plans as to how to get insurance approval. I followed the recommended guidelines and on 12/10 I received my long awaited approval. Looking back it wasn't that long at all considering this is a life long decision. On 2/24/11 I was admitted to Potomac Hospital for my RNY. I checked in at ^am and at 830am I was wheeled into the operating room. I had my surgery and went to my room and from the beginning I couldn't believe how good I felt considering. But my mind had imagined it would be quite a bit worse and it wasn't at all. I had done it and I was proud and excited to have accomplished the surgery after all and was looking forward to my new journey in life. The hospital and staff were amazing. They are a caring group of peopleand the private room with the pull out couch allowed my husband to stay with me for support which meant the world to me. Even when i had to go for my xrays etc. the other Departments were even great. From the time I rolled in to Potomac to my escorted wheel chair ride out everyone was wonderful. no complaints at all. So if your considering Dr Halmi and Bluepoint Surgical you will be glad you did. I had some health risks that were well considered and adjustments made and precautions taken and all went well. Before and aftercare are important here. I am so happy I chose Dr Halmi and Bluepoint for my WLS.

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
As early as I can remember as a child I was heavy. Family would say I was "big-boned". Other kids would make fun of me constantly. Emotionally I fely ugly and my self esteem was low. The weight problem continued throughout the years. I remember being so insulted after reading my Ob/Gyn had put "morbidly obese" in my medical record.
