Dearest Dr. Umbach,

Thank you would sincerely understate my appreciation to you. When I first considered having the Lap Band surgery, the doctors and staff at Surgical Weight Control Centers were most helpful. However, the care that I received post surgery was sub-par to say the least.

I really felt that I subjected my body to this procedure to no avail. The only option I was given was add or remove fluid from the band. Which was done several times and I still was not getting any results that mirrored the weight loss that I was going to receive by having this surgery.

My primary care physician grew increasingly frustrated as did I at the lax approach of the doctors that I was seeing. Searching for some sort of workable solution, he referred me to you.

I was greeted in your office by someone that did not make my attendance seem as an imposition. I was given a thorough examination of my medical history before I was even seen by you. You listened to me and you were not ashamed to say “I don’t know”. You sir offered non-textbook approaches to aid in rectifying my problem and I thank you and my family thanks you. I knew that there had to be a viable solution and you are willing to help me find it. I now feel confident that attaining my weight loss goal is now a reality.

Humbly Yours,
