From my first visit in February 2014 to my surgery last week, Dr Curry and his staff have been fantastic each step of the way. Everyone is thoughtful, caring, and competent. I feel as if they are here for me no matter what I need.

I decided to have the gastric sleeve 13 months ago and I have had zero problems and have lost 103 pounds! Dr. Curry and his staff are awesome and the most amazing thing is not only most of staff are bariatric patients Dr. Curry is too! This was very important to me because they truly understand the journey from start to finish.

I had the VSG surgery performed a little over two weeks ago. I have to say that overall, I am so glad I went with Doctor Curry. When I walked in the day for my surgery, I felt completely prepared on what to expect not only during the surgery but most important post op. Some major success factors for the surgery is the pre and post op diets. Doctor Curry has nutritionists on staff all the time - will respond at anytime of the hour to answer any questions and a team that makes sure the entire thing goes completely smoothly.

I've had a couple of questions since my surgery, I emailed Doctor Curry directly (he gives you this) and got a response back within a few minutes directly from him. He's always available and just does an amazing job at the entire surgery. I've had no complications or issues except he did discover a hernia and repaired it while he was in there which was awesome.

I've already lost around 34 pounds between the pre-op diet (which was tough) and the post op surgery diet. I'm already on puree and can't wait to start soft foods soon as I feel like I'm pretty much back to normal with no pain.

I can't emphasize enough that Doctor Curry is one of the best, if you want a safe, knowledgable, and seamless surgery experience - you want to go with him. This surgery has been a life saver for me - can't thank him enough for changing my life and starting me on a different path.

I have had the honor of working for Dr Trace Curry for 7 years now. I became a patient of his just 3 days ago when I decided to have the sleeve procedure done. There was no question that he would be my surgeon. I have witnessed for years of how he treated and cared for our patients. He is never too busy to answer emails or questions for any of them. I am so excited to start this journey with him and my other staff members by my side. He truly is a great surgeon!

Dr Trace Curry is my surgeon. I had my sleeve gastrectomy surgery on 8/5/13, and have had no complications so far. the only problem i had was a lot of nausea and dry heaving and servere pain while i was in the hospital over night. since ive been home ive not thrown up kept every liquid down and am in minimal pain. I believe he is the best. He comes highly recommended and I'm glad he is my doctor. He has a great bedside manner, and he is super nice. He's attentive to your needs and communicates well with you and your family. His staff are wonderful, non judgmental and accomidating with me financially. In my book, if you want the best, go to Dr Curry. Youll be glad you did.

Dr Trace Curry was my surgeon, I had a wonderful, easy experience with him and all his wonderful staff. He has so many people working for him, and its like everyone is your personal helper with what ever you need. Dr Curry has such a structured program, It's so easy, nothing to worry about. I would highly recomend him to anyone. I don't have one single negitive thing to say about him or his wonderful staff.

If you want one of the best bariatric surgeons in Ohio, then Dr. Curry is the one to go too. I work at a local hospital and checked on a few different surgeons and/or locations but found his standards were by far the highest.Even though I was a self pay patient, that didn't mean he would have performed the surgery either. I had to meet ALL of the guidleines, take nutrition classes, and meet with a staff psychologist. His nursing staff are awesome at both Cincinnati and Grove City, and those helping with the procedure are truly concerned about your progress and recovery. Well everyone that is associated with dr. Curry is from day one. Dr. Curry doesn't cut corners either. Infact he fixed a very large hiatal hernia that my own personal surgeon somehow missed when he did a scope on my upper GI tract.
Like I said, if you want the best care from a very compassionate surgeon who truly understands your frustrations, then call Dr. Curry. It will be the best decision you have ever made.

I am a gastric sleeve patient of Dr. Curry's. I had my surgery on 2/14/11 and to date have lost 148 lbs, going from a size 26 to a 6. Prior to having the surgery, I did research for over a year and chose Dr. Curry 1) because of his excellent recorded results and 2) because all of my healthcare providers (primary care, pediatric bariatric surgeon, and my Endocrinologist) independently recommended him. I went through a 6 month supervised diet with Dr. Curry and his staff. They were wonderful, knowledgeable, and supportive. Prior to the surgery, I was continually impressed with the extensive preparation and infrastructure the practice provides to all the weight loss patients. They have up to date literature, classes, support groups, and exercise resources. I was very well prepared for what was to come. It certainly is not the “easy way out” and Dr. Curry made that perfectly clear. I had my procedure at Journey Lite and had the best care of my life. Dr. Curry and the nurses were incredibly attentive and skilled. Dr. Curry and his staff excel at aftercare. After my surgery, whenever I had an issue or question, I would call the office and Dr. Curry or the Nurse Practitioner, Lisa, would get on the phone immediately. I never once had to leave a message and wait for a call back. Please note: I did have a couple of unavoidable complications (a stricture from healing and gall stones). Dr. Curry and his staff were compassionate, expedient, and took excellent care of me. I had a dilatation and gallbladder removal all by Dr. Curry and again, received excellent care, not just medically, but emotionally as well. The whole staff is with you every step of the way. I never felt like an anonymous patient. The nutritionists, Rebecca and Erin, are also available and quick to respond to any of my queries. This has been a transformative experience for me and given me my quality of life back! I am eternally grateful to Dr. Curry and his staff!

As a health care provider in rural Alaska, I want to be a good role model of health to all of my patients. After five years of diet failures to the point of self induced kidney stones, I finally decided it was time to have lap band surgery. I researched for several months, and decided to go with Dr. Trace Curry and Journey Lite. I am extremely pleased with Dr. Curry and the Journey Lite Staff in Ohio. They are so worth a 13 hour flight! Dr Curry and many of his staff members are banded, which to me is awesome because they were able to describe how I might feel after surgery as well as in the weeks post op. I have to admit, I am a nervous patient! A little medical knowledge is just enough to freak me out! Nurse Kathy had just been banded a week before me, and I think it was awesome of her to tell me not to think I am having a heart attack if I wake up with left chest and shoulder pain. I was a fast track patient coming from Alaska, so I had my psyche eval, nutrition class and meeting with Dr. Curry the day before my surgery. I have to say it was absolutely awesome. It went very smooth. Everyone was very nice, kind and efficient. After my nutrition class I felt very prepared for the post op experience. I never heard the term PB'ing before, and I promise I will try to avoid that at all costs! The next morning my husband brought me in to Journey Lite. I absolutely loved all the nurses, and the nurse anesthetist Mikey. Mikey made sure my IV was good, I am a hard stick, and he assured me I would not wake up in the middle of the procedure. I was nervous and he gave me a shot of versed. All I remember after that was talking to them about working in a rural clinic in Alaska. The last thing Mikey said to me was good night Kristen.. see you in recovery! It felt like I was asleep for like five minutes. This is how awesome Dr. Curry is.. I had an ugly hole next to my belly button, from a belly ring I had in my youth pre -fat days, and he closed it up for me!! He also fixed a hiatal hernia that I had no idea that I even had! I am so happy about that! When I woke up in recovery I had no abdominal pain. All my discomfort was in my left shoulder and chest. I am so glad Kathy warned me about that, because I would have been worried about it I had not known that ahead of time. I only remember bits and pieces of the recovery room. I remember my hubby helping me get dressed. I don't remember going to the car!! Gotta love anesthesia! I did really good drinking my fluids that day, and getting up every two hours. If you are considering it.. do it!! It's not scary at all! Dr Curry and his staff is awesome!
