In the beginning of 2004, on Mothers Day my being over weight finally took its toll and almost my life.  I went in the hospital with failing kidneys, congestive heart failure, and minimum oxygen and in need of a blood transfusion.  When I left the hospital I made a decision to live.  I did what was necessary for me and had the laparoscopic bypass surgery.
I've have lost over 200 pounds and was in need of skin removal in my stomach area.  I had already attended Dr. Katzen’s seminar 2 years earlier and when I heard him tell his story I knew immediately that he was who I wanted for my surgery.  I was so sure I wanted him that I held on to his portfolio for over 2 years.  I was right about him.  He was very sincere about his work and had a way about making you feel comfortable yet confident.  His bed side manor was great!  He was always checking in and letting you call him, it was very personal for me.  The communication between doctor and patient is very important and with Dr. Katzen you get it!  I am a successful weight loss patient and proud of it.  I am 59 years old and I feel great.
