I’m Tia. I had the gastric bypass; it’s been a year. I was at 232 lbs–now I’m down to 169.

Dr. Umbach is a wonderful doctor; he saved my life. I had the lap band first and I guess it wasn’t worn right, so he replaced it with the gastric bypass. If it wasn’t for him believing in me–that I was sick–I would probably be dead today.

Thank you, Dr. Umbach for being the #1 doctor. If I had to recommend somebody to you, believe me, you would be the first doctor.

Have a blessed one!
