Mary Beth's Story

Mary Beth
I have fought obesity and self-confidence since I was 16. I’ve lost weight many times, but would rapidly gain it back. Before my gastric sleeve surgery, my back and knees hurt, and I felt physically tired all the time. I felt uncomfortable in my clothes. I felt uncomfortable in my own skin, and I had to do something. From the first time I met Dr. McDermott, he was very helpful in every way, and he didn’t pressure me to have surgery. Having gastric sleeve surgery was the best thing I could have ever done for myself. I encourage anyone looking for a permanent weight loss solution to call the CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Bariatric Surgery Center. Everyone should go to CHRISTUS Good Shepherd.
