Donald Hess, M.D.
Dr. Hess has a wonderful disposition and a great bed-side manner!!! So much so that I forgot I was over-weight for a second when I was meeting with him.. hehe. His staff was very friendly which greatly eased my nerves (which were high) before meeting with him. He discussed everything about the surgery to me in easy to understand terms and told me about the risks involved and precations he and his team takes. He really made me feel at ease about this whole process.

Around December of 2004.. I finally wised up and became totally disillusioned with dieting on a whole. It was also the time that I was able to research the effects of yo-yo dieting (that it kills your metabolism) through a paper I did in grad-school and it was then that I became completely dismayed with myself for believing the 'Diet Myth' for so long. And that is what it is and was.. a total and complete DIET MYTH. The fact is.. I’ve killed my metabolism by yoyo-dieting. And, the other fact is.. I refuse to “Diet” ever again. Instead, I like to think of it as making healthy choices.. and where are the restrictions in choices.. right?
