My Story

A friend in the medical field suggested I go see Dr. Carlton.

On my initial visit with Dr. Carlton, I was taking several prescription meds for Type II Diabetes, High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure, Gout, and other serious health issues. I was physically exhausted and really tired of the various side-effects of so many different medications, and that really wore me out mentally too. In addition to all of this, the key reason I went to see Dr. C, was because I always felt so sick, and I couldn’t even eat without pain and rarely could hold anything down without severe nausea and vomiting. During my surgery Dr. C. discovered 15 metal clamps that were left behind from a previous bariatric sleeve surgery 6 years prior with a different surgeon. After the surgery, and the removal of those metallic clamps, my health has improved 100%. I am no longer taking any prescribed medications, and I am able to eat and hold down food again. Mentally, I feel like I got a total recharge, because my physical health is no longer such a burden to myself or my family.

Since having the surgery, I am able to do pretty much whatever I decide to do except there are not really any physical restraints or limitations. I actually ride a bicycle for at least 2.5 miles every morning, and still have lots of energy to get me through my hectic and very demanding life schedule, in which I normally put in 12-15 hours of various work per day.

I absolutely love Dr. Carlton and his entire team. From the very first time that I walked in until now, they have always treated me with the utmost respect, kindness, and professionalism. I have had some very bad situations with the medical system as a whole with my daughter’s health issues, and have been very reluctant to even go see any type of doctor for any reason; however Dr. C. really put my mind at ease and made it easy for me to trust him and his team. As a matter of fact, I actually enjoy my visits with Dr.C. when I go in, I always feel like he cares and is very sincere.

When it comes to your health and any type of Bariatric Surgery, there’s no one more trustworthy and no one better qualified than Dr. Chad Carlton and his team. I highly recommend that you give Lonestar Bariatrics a call before you consider allowing anyone else to evaluate and care for your bariatric surgery and overall health needs.
