The truth is that getting up the courage to even show a doctor my crazy body took over a year.  When I first met Dr. Katzen I had lost close to 140 pounds following successful gastric bypass surgery.  I had folds and flaps of skin and lumps and bumps that defy description.  I knew there was a lot I wanted to change, but that the process of the change would be difficult and include some measure of embarrassment. 
Having now completed one portion of the surgeries I intend to have more. I can say that Dr. Katzen was incredibly kind, compassionate, and sensitive.  We discussed all of my options, surgical and non-surgical, and he answered all of my questions honestly.  He acknowledged my fears openly without overwhelming me.  Somehow, I always feel like he is genuinely happy to see me and that he is personally invested in helping me achieve the goals I have set for myself. 
I had to travel out of the country about four weeks after a major surgery and while I was away I developed some trouble in the healing process.  Dr. Katzen and his office took my panicked phone calls in stride, advised me on the best way to get the healing back on track, and most of all reassured me that I would be okay. 
I knew before I embarked on the surgical path that it would be challenging, but having had Dr. Katzen by my side for the first part, I can't imagine continuing on without his help.
