Leland J. Cook
I could not have asked for a better surgeon or Weightloss program. Dr. Cook is such a sweet and humble man. He is a total professional, yet makes you feel totally comfortable and cared for when talking to him. I would recommend anyone to him. Thoughout my hospital stay, all the staff kept commenting on what a great surgeon he is and how much he cared for each and everyone of his patients. He always answered all of my questions and was eagar to help and make me comfortable thoughout my hospital stay. Throughout this whole process I was totally informed!! I was given guidence and directions on every step of the way. I was given a 3 ring binder filled with lists of what food to eat at what stages, along with meds that I was aloud to take and what things to expect before and after surgery. All of Dr. Cooks staff is very professional and very knowledgable about the whole procedure and aftercare. I was comfortable throughout the whole process!
Hello!! I'm Andrea! I'm a 37 year old yankee living here in NC!!;) I'm 6 times blessed!! I have 3 beautiful children (2 boys, 5 & 3yo, and a 18 month old baby girl) and 2 great step-kids (boy 16 & girl 14yo). I am married to my best friend, who is so loving and supportive in everything ( and thinks I'm sexy just the way I am :)! He's the BEST!! I am originally from NJ and moved her to Jacksonville, NC in May 2000.
I have struggled with my weight my whole life, constantly gaining and losing. I've tried pretty much everything. I had Lap-Band surgery Jan. 4th, 2008. My main goal is to feel good about myself and to be at a healthy weight for my family. I'm so tired of being the fattest one in the group. I want to be the mom running around with the kids at the park, not the fat, tired mom sitting on the bench just watching. My weight and how it makes me look and feel is ALWAYS on my mind, and I'm sick and tired of thinking about it.
I love the outdoors, horseback riding, nature walks and being with my family. I am a christian and love the Lord with all my heart! I believe in Him to guide and direct me in all that I do...and yes...even with lap band surgery!
