I just wanted to drop you a note of sincere thanks and appreciation to you, Dr. Umbach, Ruth and all the staff there at Blossom Bariatrics. I came to you as a self-pay client from Florida to receive the gastric sleeve because of the high remarks your doctor and clinic had and I just can’t say enough good things about the entire process.

I am blessed because of the success of my surgery and fortunate because I have had absolutely no problems since. I had been on countless diets for almost 40 years when I decided to make a change. I had the surgery on Dec. 16, 2011 and have lost 42 pounds. I gained back the ability to do the simplest things like tie my shoes easily, work out in the garden (which I love to do) and not be out of breath and so very tired most of the time. In talking with others who have had the gastric sleeve I realize how truly fortunate I am as I have been able to eat all foods that I have tried, now feel full with an appropriate amount of food and have rearranged my thought process to be completely happy with less and with the right kind of foods for nourishment and good health. After all, when we are overweight being healthy is the true goal with being thin (or at least thinner) the icing on the cake. I have about 40 more pounds to lose and each day I can’t believe it is me in the mirror. My many thanks once again to you all. Take care.
