Ian Soriano M.D.
When I first met Dr. Soriano, I thought "typical surgeon" meaning no sense of humor. Dr. Soriano is very professional and caring. He is very patient oriented and closely monitors all patient care before, during and after surgery. Dr. Soriano was very much involved in post surgery tests while I was still in the hospital. Temple has a structured before and aftercare program. The bariatric staff, nutritionists, nursing staff and Dr. Soriano are the best! My son is doing the six month diet prior to his wls surgery and Dr. Soriano and Temple are the only ones I trust my son with. They are beyond reproach.
Dr. Soriano saved my life!

At my highest, I weighed 370 pounds. I could say that I don't know how I got there but I do. Soda, fast food, chips...you name it.
For a long time I swallowed all my feelings and feelings of inadequacy with food. I went to three places for consultations on wls surgery. I walked away from all of them. I guess it wasn't time time for me. Finally, one day, I woke up and knew that it was the right time. I met Dr. Soriano at Temple Hospital and knew that he was the right doctor. I had my surgery on August 20, 2009. I weighed 265.7 on the day of my preop and two weeks later on the day of surgery, I weighed 345. I am nine months out and am sitting at 204. There are days that I wonder if I will get under the 200 pound mark little lone make 165 but I am going to keep plugging along. It is all I can do. I figured out that I owe it to myself. Yesterday when I was out walking, I realized that I let being overweight rule my life. I have missed out on so much of life. Being overweight led to depression and laziness. It ultimately had a part in my divorce. Food ruled my life. I am a food addict. In alot of ways like an alcoholic, cocaine addict, etc. only I need my addiciton of choice to live. I am slowly learning to adjust. It is hard though. I am trying to learn to accept myself for who and what I am. I think that will take a long time before I am there. I have been reading the OH boards for a while now. They have helped me so much with the day to day stuff and questions that I have. I am taking it day by day. I can't wait to get into onderland and ultimately make my goal.
