"When l first met Dr. Lutrzykowski, l was very uncomfortable walking into his private office. His head was down reading my chart and never acknowledged me for several minutes. rnrnThat literally threw me off as to how unprofessional he was. He questioned me about my knowledge of this surgery and the severity and the danger of this procedure.rnrnI left his office feeling depressed and severley let down. I was to loose 20 lbs before he would give me a surgery date. He gave me a date of the middle of September, to show him l was serious about my decision.rnrnAfter he checked me over, he agreed that l was a good candidate for this procedure and that l still needed to loose some of my weight prior to my surgery. Which l have done. I am scheduled for surgery Thursday September 7th 2006, and l am very glad Dr. Lutrzykowski challanged me to take inventory of my self worth and challanged me to see if l am truly committed to loosing this weight.rnrnMy faith in him is unlimited and strong, moreso after our initial visit. He has made rnme look at myself in a way that no other doctor, specialist, has, for that, l am truly grateful and 18 lbs lighter then l was 3 weeks before.rnrnI am sure come the end of this procedure, l will grow to love and honour this man for what he has done for me and my new life.rnrnWe will keep you posted and updated on my furture progress. So many patients love him, my turn is coming.rnrnSharon M."
