Could have been more proactive on getting forms out. They should be sent as soon as appt made.

At five 5’8” and 286 pounds, I was depressed for years. I thought my life was over. I didn't want to go to functions where me friends were because I knew they wouldn't recognize me. I fought my weight my entire life, I was able to lose some, then it came back and some more. Why did I wait so long to feel and look great?! I’m so happy that I chose WLIA. My doctor, John DeBarros, is fantastic and he did such a great job - I have lost close to 100 pounds and I feel great (I had my sleeve done on 11/20/2019)! This journey has been an incredible adventure. I know that my life restoration is ongoing, but I love my gastric sleeve; I would do it again in a heartbeat. I got my life back. I’m happy and I feel healthier than I ever have before. I can finally say that I am learning to be comfortable in my own skin. I’m no longer hiding behind my weight and I am grateful to have found this wonderful tool. I no longer take blood pressure meds and I can walk/run a long way! It’s amazing, I feel like a new person! This has truly been the best thing of my life. I have more control than I’ve ever had, more self-confidence and a feeling that I will finally be able to maintain this! I feel better, sleep better, have more energy, more confidence AND I feel like I look younger! Thank you, Dr. DeBarros, Mike Murphy, and WLIA! I wouldn’t have done it without you! Carpe Diem! Embrace who you are and enjoy the journey!

The staff was wonderful. And they listened. I walked in nervous and walked out so confident and a weight was lifted off my shoulder. This place is amazing.

I am just about 5 years post lap band surgery. I have had my ups and downs, which remind me what I knew about when I got into this -- it's a tool, not a solution. Dr. D has been supportive, thoughtful, and encouraging. If YOU don't do the work it won't work for you. I also have to high-5 the stepped up post-surgery support that Mike has made available.

I was reading some of these negative things and my heart broke. I don’t want some negative angry people to make someone not do this! This surgery with Dr DeBarros and Mike Murphy RD has absolutely changed my life for the better! You couldn’t meet kinder more empathetic people who have helped thousands of people get in the road to living healthy. I was the guy who was everybody’s friend always happy but inside I felt trapped in my body.... I felt at a point I was watching the World and Life pass me by as I watched from my window... the mere fact that I got to meet these wonderful people and the amazing dietitians and adopters at WLIAZ was all I needed to lose over 100 lbs and start living again! I’m Biking, Hiking and walking some movement every day and I owe it 100% to WLIAZ- remember this is about you and o ly you should decide what’s right ! Not the negative, haters and evil commenters ... Good luck!

Surgery and in house experience was good. There is a major issue with the facility failing to submit to insurance in over a 180 day period resulting in an insurance rejection. Was approved for 100% coverage but now will be facing the full bill for the incompetence of the facility insurance processing. This will be reported to the state insurance regulators for possible contract violations with my insurance.
