Hi! My name is Dustin. I had the gastric sleeve performed by Dr. Umbach on August 7th, 2014.

As of today, February 10th, I’ve lost a total of 90 lbs…91 lbs. I’ve gone from a size 46 waist to a size 36; from a 20 inch neck down to a 16 1/2 inch neck size for my dress shirts. Now I’m comfortably fitting in an extra large.

I would recommend this surgery to anyone that is in need of it.

Health-wise, I didn’t have a whole lot of health concerns at the time, but there are some health concerns that run in my family and I was trying to prevent those.

The staff here is amazing; they get back to you as soon as they can; the nutritionist is very helpful with all the information that you would need. Just an amazing outcome and I would recommend it to anybody that was needing the surgery.
