About Me

Well I'm a Stroke Survivor. I've always struggles with my weight, but the stroke made it even harder to handle. I looked into this 2-3 years ago and I obviously wasn't ready because I did not meet my requirements to move forward, that and there were things I was not comfortable with. I heard of a new program in my area late last year that I was more enthusiacic about doing. The pre-screening was extremely more aggressive, as far as checking for additional health problems. It allowed me access to my primary doctors immediately in the chance of complications.


I found out my insurance requirements and started the process. With this program, it was easy to meet requirements because they did not leave hang. They helped along the way. Because of this I exceeded expectations and was able to get my band.
