    Hello,

    For those of you considering WLS, and are not certain which surgeon to choose, I would like to recommend my surgeon, Dr. Neil Floch of Fairfield County Bariatrics. Not only is he one of the top weight loss surgeons in Fairfield County, but also in the State of Connecticut as well. My experience from the seminar, to the consultation, and the actual surgery and post-op follow-up was completely flawless! Dr. Neil Floch is a leader in the industry when it comes to not leaving any stone unturned. I had contacted the office to set up an appointment, and was informed that I had to attend a mandatory seminar to educate myself on the procedures that were offered in his practice. Once I attended a very informative seminar, I made an appointment for a in-depth consultation with Dr. Neil Floch. After our consultation, I met with the various doctors, who examined me and also cleared me for my gastric bypass procedure. When I went back to Dr. Neil Floch to choose the type of procedure I wanted, I was given a quiz about the procedure I had chosen. He wanted to make sure I knew every aspect of my decision, and educated myself on this particular procedure. Fairfield County Bariatrics has been absolutely wonderful, and I know that I have had a fantastic outcome as a result of my choice of this surgeon, the entire practice, and Norwalk Hospital.

    Please don't go into this journey without researching your surgeon, their practice, and the hospital they are affiliated with. My outcome is very successful because I've done my homework and studied for this new lifestyle I was about to embark upon. My scars are faded if not completely invisible, and to look at me now, you would never know I had a weight loss surgical procedure performed. I was very attentive to the instructions given to me from Dr. Neil Floch's team. Fairfield County Bariatrics has a team in place that assists you every step of the way as you move towards a much healthier lifestyle. I met with his Nutritionalist for an education on Bariatric eating, and I've also met with his Life Coach who conducts monthly support meetings at the hospital, and it's no cost to the patient to attend these support group meetings. When I came home from having my gastric bypass procedure, I did not need to take any pain medication, and was up and walking the same day I came home.

    It's very important to choose a surgeon, who is supportive, caring, and well-educated in this specialized field. You'll be assured and confident that your final outcome will be successful. Fairfield County Bariatrics has five different locations, which basically covers a good portion of the state for those of you who live either far North or far South, there's an office to accommodate your needs. Please look at all of your options, and google this practice on the web for further information. www.endtheweight.com

    Greetings Alicia and welcome to the forum! I'm very pleased to hear that you've decided to take action on your weight, your health, and your life! I see that you've chosen to have the RNY Gastric Bypass procedure, which will not only change the way you eat and drink, but also this special tool will teach you to eat slowly, mindfully, and much less than you've ever eaten in the past. For many of us who have attempted to conquer our weight on our own at least several times, found out quickly that we've gained all of our weight back and added an additional 20 lbs. with each attempt. Our health began to decline whether it was developing Type II Diabetes, Osteoarthritis, Sleep Apnea, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, or any other obesity-related diseases, we realize that we cannot accept this fate, we're tired, we're running out of time, we don't feel good anymore. You're ready for change, and the change is definitely for the better. You will succeed and you will do great! Any person who is motivated and ignited with the passion of success, will do very well on this journey. Please keep in touch with me and I will offer support, encouragement, and guidance as you pave your pathway to your new and improved life ahead! Thank you for your kind words as well, be well and stay in touch! Talk to you soon, Linney
