Erle's Testimonial

What was difficult, painful, or frustrating about your life before weight loss?

It was difficult to walk anywhere. I could not stand on my feet for more than 5 to 10 minutes without extreme pain in both of my knees. It was very difficult to even walk across the parking lot into work.

Why did you choose Centra Weight Loss Services for your bariatric care?

Centra has always given excellent care, and I would not go anywhere else for treatment.

What is something you’re most excited about or most proud of after losing weight?

It allowed me to get both of my knees replaced. I can stand for hours without any trouble. I am able to walk for miles where before I struggled just walking across the parking lot into work.

Can you describe your comfort with the quality of care and the people caring for you, before, during, and after your surgery?

Everyone was supportive and always giving encouragement. Even if you slip up, they would help you get back on track. The process was explained very clearly from the first appointment to all of the follow-up appointments. You always knew what was expected of you.

What is the one thing you would share with someone who is just thinking about weight loss surgery for the first time?

You need to make sure you are mentally prepared. I feel the mental aspect is the most difficult. Do not give up.
