My journey started 2 years ago! At 282lbs I was depressed and struggled with the easiest of tasks ( stairs, playing with my kids,etc). I hated how I felt! When I looked in the mirror I knew something had to change! Dr Hart and the whole team at Atlanta Bariatrics made this life changing process so easy! They were informative and beyond helpful.
Now I am maintaining 100lb weight loss and feeling great! Can never thank them enough for holding my hand through everything and giving me my life back!!!
I Just want to share my progress. I am extremely happy to be SLEEVED🦋 IM SENDING A BIG THANK YOU TO DR. JOHNSON AND EVERYONE ON HIS TEAM.
Have a fantastic day
Ken, Patient of Dr. Johnson
I was living in very poor health, with multiple health problems, and weighing 454 lbs. at age 38 in November 2009, when I decided to go to a patient seminar for weight loss surgery. I choose Atlanta Bariatrics after meeting and hearing my doctor, William Johnson MD, speak about what weight loss surgery would do for “my health”. I think the focus on the “my health” and not the amount of weight I could lose was the deciding factor for me. He told the group about getting off insulin shots, being able to stop taking cholesterol medication, and no more CPAP/BiPap for sleeping. He could have been speaking just to me, but the message was for the group attending that evening. I met with Dr. Johnson and the Atlanta Bariatrics staff in January 2010 and started my road to “better health”. The staff and my doctor guided me through the process for the pre-surgery, educated me how to live and eat healthy after the surgery, and been there cheering me on to reach my health goals. Today, weighing 223 lbs., I am no longer taking insulin shots, I have stopped taking two types of drugs for cholesterol, and I can get restful sleep without the aid of a machine. I can also enjoy the choices in life to do anything without worrying if my body will be able to do it.
