I am married with 3 children: b-8, b-5, g-1. I am a home business owner of a bakery.
My starting weight was 296 and my surgery July 14, 1999 with BTC
in Columbus and my surgeon was Dr. James Viglianco. My hobbies of course are baking, camping
walking. I have interests in crafts.
Dr. Viglianco, was very kind, to the point, and very thorough
in his explanation of surgery. He tells it all the good and the
bad. Which I think needs to be heard. The staff at BTC was so
helpful, and very kind. I really cant think of anything that I did
not like about the doctor. I mean really he saved
my life, he took very good care of me. He is in the BTC of
Columbus. Very knowledgeable and people have given very good
reports of him too. Besides myself.lol The group follows up with you
and call you to make sure there is no problems or concerns. Overall
I am very happy with the group I chose. They were great thru
the whole process. And no problem is made to make you feel like
you are complaining. They check it out. Both surgical and bedside manner
was great. I had open rny.

They really didnt stall, but they requested more
information ( a 5 year weight history) which got
lost so I faxed it to them and had an answer the
next day. Then waited for it in writing only about
5 days. Pretty easy process, very easy to work
with. Just be prepared for more information to
be requested. Have all your medical records
at hand. If I hadnt had this at hand, it would
of taken much longer.
