Ajay Goyal, MD, FACS
From the very first time I met Dr. Goyal and his partner Dr. Boulay I have felt at ease. His pre-surgical regimen of tests and monitoring is thorough, which made me feel more comfortable. The staff is amazing-they remember me by first name and managed to wrangle insurance approval within a week of applying. I met with three other surgeons before choosing Dr. Goyal and chose him because of his emphasis on patient education, follow-up, and his exemplary track record. rnHe addressed the risks of surgery several times, so I was sure to understand them. I would really have to be nit-picking to think of a negative. Overall, I would rate this experience a ten out of ten. I can't imagine having been through this with any other surgical team.rnFuture patients should remember that they are expected to be a big part of their own experience with this office, meaning that they need to make the effort to inform themselves well enough to form a vision of their own success, share it with the office, and let them help you get there.

This past winter I got the flu for the first time in my life. I was so sick that I had to go the emergency room, where they weighed me. I weighed 315 lbs. I couldn't believe it: The last time I weighed myself I weighed 70 pounds less and that weigh-in had been traumatic too. I've been fighting the fat cell my whole life: In college I won, weighing in at 5'11'' and 146 pounds. Somewhere along the way fat won and I gave up, gaining monstrous amounts of weight over the past 8 years. Every attempt to lose it resulted in a more significant gain. Now I'm 30, a sales rep (where being overweight doesn't help) and need to do something before my life passes me by. I've lost about 33 pounds since I had surgery a month ago and look forward to a slower but steady loss. I'm the only obese person I really know. My best friend is a size 2 and my boyfriend is 6'1 and weighs about 193 soaking wet. I'm so happy this board exists so I can talk to other people who have experienced obesity.
