PATIENT TESTIMONIAL
It is hard to believe that it's been a year since my surgery. I've gone from 370 lbs (BMI:44) to 227 lbs (BMI:26) in one year. I have to thank Dr. Wilcox and the entire staff at Hope Bariatrics for their hard work and support, they are truly wonderful. I have so much energy now, love playing softball and bowling without my knees and back constantly hurting. I love the time I have with my kids without getting tired so easily. After all the diets failed, I felt discouraged and just figured I'd be heavy the rest of my life. This has been one of the best decisions of my life and my self esteem is as good as it's ever been. It's an awesome feeling to go shopping for clothes and be able to pick out what you truly want.

God Bless,
