I chose Lap-Band® because my asthma was so bad I couldn’t make it up the stairs with my newborn. I had to stop in between bites when eating to catch my breath. Also, I had no energy to play with my 10 yr. old. Obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes all run in my family and I wanted to do something to prevent me from following that path.
I chose Beverly Hills Physicians because the office was the friendliest office I came across. Everyone made me feel so comfortable and their confidence in what they do made me feel this was the right place for me to have my surgery. The doctor took the time to answer all my questions and really left the decision up to me, he didn’t push the surgery on me like a sales person.
My experience has been great. I’ve had no complications or side effects*. My doctor really makes sure that he doesn’t over fill the band so there are no problems when I go home after a fill.
I can’t believe how fast the weight came off. How easy it was to adjust to my new way of eating and how comfortable the band and port are.
I am looking forward to maintaining my weight, playing with my children, living a healthy life and being able to watch my children grow up.
If I had to do it over again, I would do it in a heartbeat 100x over. The surgery was the best thing I’ve ever done for myself, and Beverly Hills Physicians was the best place to do it. Thanks to all the staff and doctors.
