My Story

I was diabetic, had high blood pressure and MS flares constantly. I was the least healthy of my adult life. A girl’s trip where I couldn’t keep up with my friends due to my weight was the final straw. At that point, I Googled weight loss surgeons in my town and Doc C was the first option.


Before I had surgery, I was depressed, tired, angry, and disappointed. Being a retired RN, my pre-op expectations and standards were very high. Doc C exceeded my expectations. His staff is great and so supportive. My pre-op concerns were my health and baggy skin, but overall I was excited once surgery day rolled around. Post-op, recovery was very easy and the states were manageable.

A year post surgery, I’m down 140 lbs, and I can walk, hike, jog, enjoy theme parks, and wear new clothes – I like myself in the mirror. I’m no longer diabetic nor do I have high blood pressure. My mental health has improved considerably in relation to negative self talk. I’m happy with who I am.

Doc C is a consummate professional. His staff are supportive and helpful. This surgery has changed my life!
