“I can’t believe it took me this long to finally decide to have WL surgery! I had the sleeve on August 1, 2011 and have lost just over 96 pounds to date. The weight loss seemed slow at first, but looking back, it’s like, “WOW! I can’t believe how fast that came off.” I still struggle daily with my “fat-girl brain” but I am doing great. The support I have received from Nancy and her team has been awesome! I could not have made it this far without them!” Joy (before and after pictures above) Patient since June, 2011

Clearance letter to the Surgeon indicating the patient is ready for surgery once you have completed all the mandatory classes.
