Down 140 Pounds and On No Medication At All

Hi, my name is Stephanie Gillespie and I come to this beautiful office from the state of Hawaii.

I first encountered Dr. Umbach six years ago. At that time I weighed 293 pounds. I was suffering from all the maladies of obesity. I had high cholesterol, high lipids. I was diabetic. I was on medication for everything and also high blood pressure.

Since then, six years later, I am down 140 pounds and on no medication at all. I’m very happy, very healthy. It was quite an adjustment in the beginning, because it’s a new lifestyle, but I encourage you to go forward with the surgery because it is something that you will greatly benefit from in the long run.
