The staff were very helpful and caring. I have struggled for so many years and I believe that I have support now to be able to make the change I need to, to become healthy instead of continuing to spiral out of control. I became afraid that if I continued with yo-yo diets there was a heart attack around the corner or other major health issues. After speaking to the SmartShape staff and Surgeon, I felt I would be on my way to a healthier me. I strongly believe I made the right choice and have the support to help get me there. Thank you to the entire SmartShape team from the Surgeon, to the nurses, the anesthesiologist, and all the support staff. You have changed my life.
