I underwent gastric bypass surgery with Dr. Barnes in December 2020. This journey has been life-altering for me having battled obesity since childhood. On March 1, 2024, I will have lost a total of 150 pounds, but more importantly, I've embraced healthy eating habits and daily exercise as a part of this new lifestyle. Dr. Barnes and his team were instrumental in both the preparation for the survey and support during the crucial year post-operatively. I was even able to support others in their weight loss journeys utilizing the tools from Dr. Barnes and his team. Weight loss is never easy, and can feel impossible on your own. Dr. Barnes and his team made certain that I wasn't alone. Their support, encouragement, and even tough love when needed were only a phone call or an office visit away. Thank you to Dr. Barnes and his team for how you've helped me change my life!
