Prior to gastric bypass surgery on 1/6/2011, I weighed 362 pounds. I was a size 28W and dropped to a size 12 and weighed in at 179 pounds. When I was asked what my goal weight was, I simply stated, “I wanna cross my legs and get on a roller coaster!” Not only have I went to Disneyland, Six Flags, Las Vegas, & Mexico, but I’ve gone horse back riding on the beach, jet skiing in the lakes, and 3 wheeling on the sand. I partied at all of the hottest clubs and wore my first dress! My life did a 360, Thanks to Dr. Eslami and all of his supportive staff. Without them, I would not be where I am today. 😉 – Perez
Dr. Eslami and his office saved my life. I was 100 plus pounds over weight and Type 2 diabetic. I had my monument and decided that WLS was the way I would have to go. I also knew better then most people because I am an RN. On May 1, 2013, I had the Sleeve Gastrectomy by the doctor and I have never looked back. I was 310 lbs at the start and as of Jan. 4, 2014 I hit my goal weight of 130 lbs lost. Dr. Eslami and his office have been with me every step of the way. The pre-operative and after care was the best. If you have a question they are right there to help. This surgery is not just a physical change its a mental and lifestyle change as well. I currently am off all medications for type 2 diabetes. My health is back and on top of it I look and feel better! I thank everyone at the office for their support and Dr. Eslami for his bedside manner and skill as a doctor. – Jessica
