Before I came to Dr. Eslami I was diabetic, taking insulin and oral medication. I was also taking medication for high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Since my surgery, I no longer take medication, my diabetes is gone and I have lost over 70 lbs. I am so grateful for Dr. Eslami and his staff for all of the support and encouragement. It has been life changing and life saving for me. – Malinda
