Disclaimer: individual results vary
Being overweight for most of my life, I have battled with joint pain, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I felt horrible, exercise was difficult and I was always extremely fatigued. I was failing as a wife, mother and grandmother.
I have been a registered nurse for over 30 years. In August of 2010, I was asked to take on the role of Bariatric Coordinator and take the lead developing a Bariatric Center of Excellence for Placentia-Linda Hospital. I had the fringe benefit of being able to observe Dr. Oliak in the surgical arena. Dr. Oliak is a meticulous and superb surgeon!
During this time I also consulted with Dr. Oliak personally. I had a sleeve gastrectomy on August 5, 2011. It is undoubtedly one of the best things I have done for myself. I now have energy, my joint pain has improved dramatically; my blood pressure and cholesterol levels have also improved. I physically and mentally feel lighter and brighter! Professionally and personally, the quality of my life has improved.
Thank you Dr. Oliak!!
