Surgeon Testimonial

Michael Williams
My experience so far: When Dr. Williams walked in the room he had a quiet confident demeanor. As we talked, I became even more comfortable and found him to be very knowledgable and honest about the risks and benefits of surgery. I wasn't sure which surgery was best for me (I was deciding between RNY & VSG) and he answered all of my questions about both options. He did not try to push me in either direction. He stated facts about the benefits of one over the other and ultimately I chose the RNY. His staff was wonderful! They were all so friendly! I must admit I was concerned while setting up the appointment because there was some confusion on paperwork, but then Jackie told me they had recently moved and were working on some kinks. It seems those kinks are either worked out or very close to it. After care was stressed several times throughout the office visit by the nurse and doctor. In my opinion surgical competence and bedside manner are both very important. Dr. Williams seems to have both. My husband and I both left feeling very comfortable with this decision and our chose of a physician.

Finally out of the 200's!
posted 9/30/09 7:27 pm

Yep!  That is absolutely correct!  I officially weigh 199.5 lbs!  I had no idea how amazing under 200 would feel.  I haven't weighted under 200 since I was 18 years old.  Today I felt so confident and happy over my weight loss.  I still have a little ways to go, but it doesn't seem overwhelming anymore.  At my highest weight it felt like I would never get where I wanted to be.  Now that I only have 39.5 lbs to go, it totally feels like I can hit it.  It is so encouraging.  I am so much more mobile now and can do things that I couldn't do before.  Man it's wonderful!  This surgery has given me the tool I needed to get my weight under control.  I am so thankful to God for helping me through the first 6 1/2 months.  There is so much more to the surgery than just the physical aspects of it.  There are a lot of mental aspects you have to get under control.  Some of my problems with food was my choices.  We eat out a lot and I would always choose the unhealthy items.  Mostly fried foods and starchy fried foods.  My diet was so unhealthy!  Thinking back on how much fried yucky stuff I ate really amazes me.

My 6 month follow up was rescheduled until Oct. 12th.  This time of the month for me at work is crazy so I called and rescheduled, which worked out great because when I told them what I needed to do they were relieved...apparently this works out better for them too.  :)

Well for now that's it. 

God bless!!!
