Hi Corinne, I am in the Bariatric Program at Loma Linda and when i looked online for reviews i found your testimony! (I have been on OH for a week or so and have found great encouragement.) I have completed all my tests and visits. Next week i will be done with my required diet classes (4 months) and my one on one with Jason. Dr. Kannappan is my surgeon. I also have 70 pounds overall to lose (i have lost 25 on the monitored diet). I look forward to meeting you sometime if you are still working at LLUSH. Great work! Susan
