I am very proud and honored to say that I have been a patient of Dr. Katzen for nearly two years. The dramatic process of extreme weight loss and rediscovery of your body is one that requires a lot of caring and support as well as trust and confidence from the professionals that you choose to help you through this journey. I was very fortunate to have found all of those qualities in Dr. Katzen.

I had a very difficult recovery from my Gastric Bypass (4/29/03) and did not have much desire to subject myself to more medical procedures. However, I am so thankful that I forged ahead and consulted with Dr. Katzen, hoping that the completion of my weight loss journey would be an easy, less painful experience than my bypass.

I can tell you, after three procedures with Dr. Katzen over a six-month period of time, it was not easy, and there was pain, but I always knew I was safe and in the hands of someone who truly cared for me. His skill as a surgeon goes without saying, but it is his ability to make his patients feel at ease and as if they are the only one in the world at that moment, is invaluable. As an obese person, I always felt ugly, guilty and anxious when seeing a doctor. Now, thanks to Dr. Katzen I have a renewed faith in the medical profession.

No one can ever prepare a person for all of the changes that you go through as a bariatric patient, but you can be smart and responsible about the decisions you make. I am fortunate to say that I was and by being so, I have had the opportunity to not only feel comfortable in my own skin, but have made a true friendship with a very special surgeon who has the ability to always make me feel special and beautiful. Thank you Dr. Katzen for everything you have done for me and know that I will faithfully support your vision as long as you are practicing.
