My name is Mike. A couple of years ago I weighed 430 lbs. I was wearing size 6XL. My life was a mess. I had diabetes, depression, sleep apnea and no social life among things, because of my weight I was treated different than people of normal size. It was not pleasant. I tried to not let it get to me but it did. I decided to lose the weight (again). I ate salads, chicken and fish. No fast foods. In little over a year I lost 180 lbs. Now I was faced with a different problem, one that was just as bad or worse than being heavy. I had skin hanging all over me. It hung below my shirt and people again were making remarks about me. I had to do something. A friend of my parents said he knew a doctor I could call to do surgery to remove the skin. I called but could not reach that doctor but someone there gave me the name of Dr. Katzen. I gave his office a call, made an appointment to see him. This appointment was the BEST THING that ever happened to me. Dr. Katzen was so understanding. He knew exactly what I had been going through and told me how he would help me become the person I have always wanted to be. He covered everything I could possibly want to know. He would listen to what I had to say even if I asked him ten times over. He never rushed me or failed to answer any of my questions. I have never met a doctor as gentle, understanding and caring as Dr. Katzen. I did not research the internet or see other doctors. You just know when you have the BEST and I did. Dr. Katzen’s experience and knowledge is second to none. I am so grateful to him and his staff especially Jane who was always there for me.

Dr. Katzen performed a circumferential body lift on me this past July I am now wearing size L shirts and my pants size dropped from size 52 to 40. I cannot tell you how happy I am with my life now. I no longer have diabetes and people treat me so much better. I do not get smug looks and smirks any longer. I am so glad that I found Dr. Katzen. He has been a life saver.
