July Patient Of The Month Lucia Kozdron
A big thank you to Dr. Bilof and his staff!! Let’s start at the beginning. I had a doctor’s appointment in April of 2014. When they weighed me I started to cry. I went home, searched the internet, found Garden State Bariatrics and made my appointment. I loved their website. I went to their seminar first. I met the doctor the first week of May. That was the beginning of my “Sleeve” journey and have never looked back. August 13th will be my two year anniversary and I am loving life.
My preop weight was 281 pounds and I now weigh 150 pounds. Dr. Bilof, Kathleen , Julie and Jessica helped make this decision one of the easiest I have ever made…they are family now! Besides the obvious health benefits after surgery, I have gained a self confidence in myself that I never knew I had. AND, I gained a new love…I will continue to celebrate my “surgerversary”.
Bring on the rest of my life- I am ready.
