"In short...the team at Vadim Gritsus' office saved my life. rnrnI was very reticent about exploring weigh-loss surgery. However, when I got to the point that I was fearful for my life, I decided to attend one of Dr. Gritsus' seminars. I entered the room with a negative attitude, knowing that this was going to be just another hard-sell for something I was afraid to consider.rnrnBOY WAS I WRONG! From the moment the doctor started to speak, he made me feel comfortable with a calm, logical approach to weight loss that I had never considered. Not accusatory, not hard-sell, just an incredible understanding of the procedure and what to expect after. His complete knowledge and experience were impressive, even as he answered some very hard questions that were thrown out from the audience.rnrnWhen I came to the office for my first appointment, I was greated with the same knowledge and experience, coupled with a respect I have never experienced in my prior weight-loss efforts. Everyone in his office was pleasant, helpful and made me feel that I was part of the family. They took the necessary time to explain the procedure thoroughly and they took care of all of the insurance paperwork for me. Amazing!rnrnI am now 9 months post-op, have lost a total of 105 lbs. and am healthier than I have been in a very long time, thanks to Dr. Gritsus and his team of caring professionals!rnrn"
