Hi. My name is Kimberly. On September 18th, 2014, I had my gastric sleeve performed by Dr. Umbach, who is absolutely amazing. I started at 305 lbs. and I’m currently at 271.5 lbs. I feel absolutely fantastic–I can get up the stairs without losing breath–I can play with my 2-year old daughter without getting exhausted easily. I feel a little pep in my step.

I’ve also started doing the Myers’ cocktail, which was recently started with Dr. Umbach’s office and it’s been absolutely […] beneficial to me. I really can feel the nutrients just absorbing into my body; it feels so good to leave with […] having the 100% great feeling of making sure you’re getting all the nutrients you need.

I also love Angela so much–Dr. Umbach’s new physician assistant. She is so caring and warm and sweet and she checked on me after one of my Myers’ cocktails and just wanted to make sure I was doing OK and really went the extra mile to make sure that I was OK.

I just love Blossom and [everyone], from Ruth to Bridgette to Wayne to everybody–they are just absolutely amazing.

I really recommend Dr. Umbach and Blossom Bariatrics if you’re considering weight loss surgery.

A final note is I know a lot of people discourage weight loss surgery, but, as an addict to food, it’s really important that people know that this is rock bottom–this is your last straw and this is to save your life. And, I really–in the two weeks [since] surgery–can say with confidence–100%–that I’ve got my life back and I feel great!

I wish all of those who are considering weight loss surgery the best of luck.

Thank you so much!
