Willie Melvin, M.D.
He was very nice and encouraging. I had an encounter in the waiting room with a post op patient that said I wasn't big enough to have surgery and gave me the whole horror story of her surgery and problems. She made me feel very guilty and he and his nurse really calmed me down. He assured me that I was doing the right thing now, before I was bigger and became diabetic or hypertensive. The entire staff at the Vanderbilt Center for Weight Loss is very nice and sympathetic and encouraging. My calls and concerns are answered immediately and no one has ever gotten impatient with my questions. The after care program is very extensive and they really keep up with you and your progress. I would encourage people that are near Nashville to consider Vanderbilt. I went there because of my insurance, but I am glad I did.

I am a single mom of a college sophomore. I am also pursuing a degree. I have struggled with my weight for the last 20 years and pray that the gastric bypass will help me lose enough weight to stay healthy. I am tired of being so exhausted and having joint pain. I want to be able to just be a normal person again
