What was your first impression of her?
She takes what she does very seriously
How did your impression change over time?
It didn't, she is very supportive of her patients and wants to see them succeed and I think that I am lucky to have a doctor like that.
How would you describe his/her office staff?
Everyone is so nice.
What should future patients know about
Don't be afraid to ask questions, she's there to help and she will tell you the truth without sugar coating it.
How much does she emphasize aftercare?
Very much. There is an awesome nutritional staff and patient support, USE THEM!
Does she have a structured aftercare program?
How did she address the risks of surgery?
Very clear, again she tells it like it is.
How would you rate her overall?
Great, no problem with the office either.
Which is better, surgical competence, bedside manner, or are both great?
Both! I couldn't ask for a better doctor! She greated me everytime I saw her with a smile and really interested in what I had to say. She took excellent care of me and made sure I was well taken care of in the hospital.

I am a 33 y/o wife and mother of two children. I have PCOS and am pre-diabetic. I am 5'3" and my heaviest weight was 231. I originally chose the Lapband procedure because it seems to me to be less invasive then the RNY procedure. After many weeks doing research talking to people and being here on this site I have decided to do RNY instead. It really is a personal choice that you have to make for yourself and there is some serious soul searching that goes along with WLS. Although I have had my struggles with weight loss in the past I was not "obese" until after my second pregnancy. It was rough on my body and I just never recovered. I am hoping to regain a little bit of the woman I used to be cause that girl was freakin amazin! I grew up in TX (yeehaw) I was in the Navy for 4 years and am now married to an amazing man and I am also a culinary student (I know, my obsession with food runs deep). My husband and I have two wonderful children that give me a reason to be the best me I can be. My husband is still in the Navy and I couldn't be more proud of him. I am a nurturing person but I have realized in the past few years that when I am not true to myself that everyone around me suffers for it, because of that I am now ready to take care of me so I can better take care of the people around me. I am ready for this journey and ready to reclaim "me" again!
