July Patient Of The Month Lucia Kozdron

Lucia Kozdron, July Patient Of The Month at Garden State Bariatrics

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.
