Patty's Testimonial

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

 Before weight loss I was unable to enjoy doing things I enjoy such as hunting and hiking with my husband. I had painful joints which made daily activities hard to do. Clothes shopping was very frustrating due to a limited availability of clothes in my size.

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

I chose Centra Weight Loss for my care because being a Centra employee and living in Lynchburg, it made the most sense for me to use our providers. After researching procedures and talking to people I knew that had had the surgery too I was very confident Dr. Alley and his team was the right choice!

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

I am now able to enjoy life. I can do things that I would have never been able to do before. I completed my first 5k only 4 months post-op. I no longer have to buy plus size clothes. In December I will be celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary with a vow renewal in the Caribbean and I will be doing this in a beautiful wedding dress that 1 year and 90 pounds ago I would not be wearing.

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

I was and still am 1000% comfortable with the quality of care I have received from everyone at Centra Weightloss since the day I made the call to make my very first appointment. Everyone is very knowledgeable about the surgery and made all my worries and issues vanish.

What is one thing you would share with someone who is thinking about weight loss surgery? 

If you are considering surgery and are a candidate I would say do it. It is life changing. The only regret I have is I wish I would have done it sooner. My life now is far better than ever and it's only going to get better from there and so can yours!
