I started at 263 pounds and as of today I am at 173 pounds so in a short 6 months I have lost 90 pounds, I have lost 12 pant sizes I started at a 22/24 and I am now in a size 10 not only have I regained my life for myself and my family. I have regained my health to be there for my family and watch my children grow. None of this would have been possible without Dr. Eslami and his amazing staff they are the ones who truly helped me in this next step of my life.

Prior to gastric bypass surgery on 1/6/2011, I weighed 362 pounds. I was a size 28W and dropped to a size 12 and weighed in at 179 pounds. When I was asked what my goal weight was, I simply stated, "I wanna cross my legs and get on a roller coaster!" Not only have I went to Disneyland, Six Flags, Las Vegas, & Mexico, but I've gone horse back riding on the beach, jet skiing in the lakes, and 3 wheeling on the sand. I partied at all of the hottest clubs and wore my first dress! My life did a 360, Thanks to Dr. Eslami and all of his supportive staff. Without them, I would not be where I am today. ;)

Dr. Eslami and his office saved my life. I was 100 plus pounds over weight and Type 2 diabetic. I had my monument and decided that WLS was the way I would have to go. I also knew better then most people because I am an RN. On May 1, 2013, I had the Sleeve Gastrectomy by the doctor and I have never looked back. I was 310 lbs at the start and as of Jan. 4, 2014 I hit my goal weight of 130 lbs lost. Dr. Eslami and his office have been with me every step of the way. The pre-operative and after care was the best. If you have a question they are right there to help. This surgery is not just a physical change its a mental and lifestyle change as well. I currently am off all medications for type 2 diabetes. My health is back and on top of it I look and feel better! I thank everyone at the office for their support and Dr. Eslami for his bedside manner and skill as a doctor.

Before I came to Dr. Eslami I was diabetic, taking insulin and oral medication. I was also taking medication for high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Since my surgery, I no longer take medication, my diabetes is gone and I have lost over 70 lbs. I am so grateful for Dr. Eslami and his staff for all of the support and encouragement. It has been life changing and life saving for me.

April 2013, Dr. Eslami performed the Sleeve Gastrectomy. I have since lost 94 pounds within the past 8 months. I have so much energy and am able to enjoy many things I couldn't do prior to having this surgery. Most importantly, I am becoming healthier! Dr. Eslami and his wonderful, dedicated staff are awesome and will guide you through the process with ease. I can't imagine what life would be like for me without having had this surgery. My life has been renewed!

I had Gastric Sleeve surgery on 7/31/2013, since then I have lost almost all my goal weight. I have lost 60lbs and still counting, which is so exciting. Before my surgery, I was diabetic and dealing with other new onset health conditions. Since my surgery, I am no longer diabetic and my other health conditions have disappeared. I am so grateful to Dr. Eslami and staff for all their help and support.

I had the Sleeve Gastrectomy January 16, 2013. Prior to my surgery there was concern about whether surgery was possible due to abdominal scaring and adhesions I had from a birth defect. I appreciate Dr Eslami's brutal honesty, even on the day of surgery, letting me know that even with all the tests and precautions he couldn't promise I'd come out of surgery with what I wanted. In the end he was able to safely perform a sleeve.

So far I've lost over 65 pounds. I can't say the road has been easy but the support from Dr Eslami and his staff is always there. Lynette is awesome with helping you navigate insurance and pre-operative stuff. Amanda is very accessible to answer questions. I even texted her while at the grocery store comparing yogurt for my pre-operative diet. I can not say enough about Rondi, the bariatric nurse. She's a wealth of knowledge and a wonderful cheerleader. She even came to check in on me at the hospital. All of Dr. Eslami's team are down to earth awesome people. Come to the classes and support group and you'll get to know them even more.

I had "The Sleeve" done in November 2012. It has been 10 months and I have lost 94 lbs. My starting weight was 324. I was basically miserable. Not being able to walk across the room without being out of breath. I lost my right leg in 2007 due to Diabetes and knew I had to change. Since the surgery, I have only needed 1 shot of insulin and before I was on an insulin pump 24/7. Blood pressure meds have been cut in half as well as others.

I can do things now that I haven't done in years... I enjoy life and my family again.

LIFE IS GOOD... THANK YOU DR. ESLAMI AND STAFF.

After almost 20 years of yo-yo dieting, I would lose up to 80 pounds at a time to only gain most of it back, my doctor recommended that I get off the yo-yo track once and for all and introduced me to Dr. Eslami and his team. My highest weight ever was 260 and at the time of my gastric sleeve surgery in January 2013, I was 230 pounds, a weight I was stuck at for almost 2 years despite dieting and exercise.

Eight months later and over 50 pounds lighter, I feel like a new woman. I have the freedom to eat what I want, within the healthy sleeve limitations. I have so much energy and am thrilled that while I'm still around 20 pounds from my ultimate goal, I'm fitting into clothes that I haven't worn for years.

I give Dr. Eslami, Rondi, Amanda, and Lynette my utmost appreciation and respect for helping me get to where I am today. Thank you!

In April 2012, I had Roux-eny Gastric Bypass surgery. Before I had my surgery I was unable to walk without the aid of a walker due to a crushed hip. I wasn't eligible for hip surgery because I had diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholestrol, and my weight was too high. After surgery, I no longer take any medication for the above ailments and was able to have hip surgery. I have never felt better in my life! I am in clothes sizes I have never been before and feel like a new person!

After years of loving food I decided it was time to give my bad choices up. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to let go of the sugar and soda. Increasing your protein does amazing things to your cravings.

I had Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass surgery in November of 2012 and am down almost 70 pounds. The first 60 pounds came off in two months! Dr. Eslami is very skilled and I haven't had any complications. I haven't craved the bad foods, so I don't experience much dumping or yucky feelings.

Shopping at Macy's takes so much longer now that I can shop in the whole store. It is amazing to fit into a size 12 and I 'm still getting smaller.

I had the gastric sleeve surgery 6 months ago on October 3, 2013. Since my surgery I have lost 77 pounds and have gone from a size 22 to a size 14. I have not felt this good since high school. i still have 40 pounds to lose, but I have no doubt that I can do it. I am working out 3-4 times a week and it feels great. This was the best decision I have made. I am never hungry and feel wonderful. Dr. Eslami and his team is wonderful. Lynette took the time to explain every step and kept me informed of all my results. Rondi was a great support and kept in touch with me after the surgery. She was available for all my questions and concerns. They are a wonderful group and I would recommend them to anyone. I am ready to start the next chapter of my life healthier and happier.

I had Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass surgery in June of 2012. This is one of the best decisions that I have ever done in my life. I am so glad that I found Dr. Eslami. He is wonderful. He has given me a tool that has changed my life for the better. I was a long time dieter and after a vicious cycle of yo-yo dieting and after having 3 children I was morbidly obese. Prior to the surgery I could bairly move and was borderline diabetic. In less than a year,I have lost almost 100 pounds. Thank you Dr. Eslami and his staff for all of your help. If you choose Dr. Eslami you will not be disappointed.

This is, by far, the hardest lifestyle change I have experienced. I had the Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass. In 18 months, I have lost 112 lbs, no more high blood pressure, GERD, and my thryoid is normal. Meds have pretty much gone by the wayside. Exercise, such as walking up and down stairs are so easy. No more loss of breath. I have experienced a reaction to the protein powders, so I have to rely on my diet to ensure my protein levels. Thanks, Dr. Eslami and staff for all your kind care and understanding, during and after my recovery.

Hi my name is Robyn. I would like to thank Dr. Eslami and his staff for giving me my life back. I had my surgery in March 2011 with a starting weight of 322 pounds. Since my surgery I have lost over 150 pounds. Having Gastric Bypass Surgery was the best decision I have ever made in my life. I thought about having surgery about 10 years ago and was not mentally prepared and couldn’t find a surgeon I connected with. Dr. Eslami is an awesome surgeon. Right from the start he made me feel comfortable and he is extremely knowledgeable. There are so many things I am able to do now like cross my legs, get on the floor and play with my son, lift weights and go zip lining. I even compete in 5K runs now. I continue to attend monthly support meetings through Dr. Eslami's office and feel they are very beneficial for my ongoing success. Thank you Dr. Eslami you have given me my life back. I would also like to give a special thanks to Lynette and Rondi, thank you so much for all of your help and support throughout my weight loss journey.

I had Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass on June 20, 2012 and I've lost 112 pounds. I pinch myself every day because I can't believe this is real. This surgery has given me the confidence to live a healthy life. I used to have high blood pressure, sleep apnea and my blood sugar level was borderline diabetic. I would wake up sore and tired. I now have endless energy and look forward to going to the gym. I no longer use my C Pap machine and am no longer on any medication for high blood pressure. If you follow Dr. Eslami's advice, you too can change your life...in less than a year.

Dr. Eslami has given me a life that i thought i could never have. I have been overweight since childhood and never knew what thin was. I continued to struggle with my weight as an adult, and was unsuccessful at dieting. I had my surgery Aug 3, 2011. I have lost 110 pounds and have been maintaining the loss for the past 18 months! I could have never done it without the support and encouragement from Dr. Eslami and his staff!

Dr. Eslami gave me life back! It is like being reborn. On the day of surgery, I was 299 lbs and am now 167 lbs. I have lost 132 lbs...WOW.

I had the Sleeve Gastrectomy procedure on 12/21/11 and today 02/21/13 I feel like I am 20 again! Dr. Eslami is truly the BEST in this field. I will forever be thankful for being referred to Dr. Eslami.

The pictures speak volumes. prior to surgery I had high blood pressure, high everything, I also needed foot surgery, now all is good and I no longer take the mass quantity of prescription medication, that ultimately, due to obesity caused the need for these medications but because I decided to proceed with Bariatric Surgery I am medication free.

As I sit here writing this testimonial I recall that a year ago today I was prepping for my gastric bypass surgery. My last and what I felt was a desperate act to reclaim my life for my children, my husband and most of all myself. I struggled for years to lose weight and live a healthy life. At the age of 39 and a height of 5'8", I tipped the scales at 289 pounds. I used to joke that I weighed more than the heavy weight champion of the world and most NFL linebackers. But in reality I wasn't laughing. Everyday I tried and everyday I failed to get my eating under control. It was a battle I couldn't win.

The day that I walked into Dr. Eslami's office was the day that my new life began. I made the connection, now I had to do the work. After classes, Dr. appointments, therapy and relearning how to eat I was ready for my surgery, totally informed and yet totally scared. Little did I know that this "desperate" act was the best decision that I ever made.

Today, exactly one year later, I weigh 165 pounds; that is 124 pounds down from my highest weight. I am no longer depressed, I am not on any prescribed meds and I am happier and healthier than I have ever been in my life. I exercise daily, eat sensibly and remember where I was and how I could be there again if I am not mindful and consistent in my new habits. The surgery is a tool, it is in no was an "easy fix". I work hard to take care of this gift. I am running races and preparing for things that I never thought possible and loving every minute.

I want to thank Dr. Eslami and his wonderful staff from the bottom of my heart. You are amazing and have given me a new life. I also thank my beautiful and supportive family and friends. I couldn't have gotten here without you all and I will forever be grateful. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Before I had the my Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass surgery in April 2011 I weighed 242.4 pounds. I had high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and all the aches and pains that go along with carrying all that extra weight around. I had a hard time walking even short distances. Now since I lost 113 pounds I am not taking blood pressue medication, no longer have sleep apnea and can walk up six flights of stairs without getting winded. Bariatric surgery has changed my life. I love my new look and all the energy that I have. I feel like a new woman. This was the best thing I ever did for myself.

Thank you Dr. Eslami for giving me my life back.

I know this sounds cliche, but Dr. Eslami had not only given me my life back, but given me a whole new life. I'm healthier and more active than I've been in the past 20 - 25 years. I think I was in junior high school the last time my waist was this size. It's exciting to be able to by clothes off the rack and not have to pay a premium for the plus sizes and be able to find stylish clothes that fit and not having to accept things that fit. I have more confidence now which has helped me in my professional life. Instead of going quietly to the back of the room, I'm more outgoing and approachable. I know Dr. Eslami gave me the tools, now I am just using them to better my quaility of life. I would strongly urge anybody that is having health or emotional issues due tho their weight to at least sit down and have a consultation with Dr. Eslami. I would do it again tomorrow. Prior to surgery I heard many horror stories, family and friends tried to discourage me from having the surgery, I am so glad I used my better judgement and had the procedure. It has given me my life back.

Hello, My name is Heather. Nine months ago I had Gastric Bypass. Today I am 95 pounds lighter then I was when I made the decision to have surgery. I know that the surgery saved my life. Every time I went to the Dr before surgery I would hear about how high my cholesterol was, how high my blood pressure and how high my weight. I would leave depressed. Dr. Eslami and his staff gave me the magic ticket to turn my life around. Today my lab work is text book perfect. I feel like Im in high school again when I get dressed. I have so much fun buying clothes in normal sizes and my confidence level is high. Dr. Eslami is so nice and funny. I will never regret my decision to get surgery, It has truly given me my life back!!!

I weighed 408 lbs and I wasn't happy with myself, I couldn't go to amusement parks and get on the ride with my children, walking was a big problem. On June 29, 2011 I had the bypass surgery done with Dr. Eslami. As of Nov 2012 I have lost 194 lbs. I have never felt so good in my life, now I'm coaching baseball and playing with my kids, and enjoying family walks on a daily basis.

After 20 plus years, of struggling with my weight I decided that I needed to focus on myself. I didn't want to turn 40 and still have health issues, such as sleep apnea, be out of breath doing the simple chores, and close to being diabetic, etc.

Before embarking on my journey to a better me, I was a size 24/26 and weighted 300 pounds. My insurance required a year long process even before I met with Dr. Eslami. I learned, why I was eating and the triggers for it. Then I met Dr. Eslami. All I can say is, Wow!!! He made me feel that this wasn't the easy way out. He reminded me that this was a tool to get to the correct weight. However, he stated that it is up to the patient to determine how successful they are. You will have to still exercise and eat right to maintain the weight loss. I live my life by those words. I had gastric bypass on February 15 of 2012. Today was my ninth month check-up and I am a size 10/12 and weight 178 pounds. That is a 112 pounds since I left the hospital. My BMI is down to 26 from 43. I feel great.

There is no way to express how wonderful the staff are. They are caring, responsive, and go out of their way to help their patients. If you are thinking of weight loss surgery this is the place to come and the Doctor to have.

I gained 80lbs during my pregnancy in my mid 20s and tried every diet and gimmick known to woman-kind, then yoyo'd for years. At 55 I flat gave up and knew I was going to die as a fat person. It took me a year to decide to have bariatric surgery…the deciding factor being that my HbA1C was elevated for the first time in my life. I knew I couldn't spend what was left of my life like my mother did; diabetic and on dialysis. I met Dr. Eslami and his staff and was immediately sure I was making the right choice. Lynnette helped me breeze through the preliminary red tape of insurance authorizations, Randi schooled me on proper nutrition, and Rhondi emotionally held my hand every step of the way. I felt confident that Dr. Eslami was more than qualified to perform this surgery, and I was not disappointed. I recommend this group to everyone I come into contact with who is considering this life altering surgery. I have never before felt this comfortable in my skin…even though there is quite a bit more of it…and I think I will keep it to remind me from where I traveled.

Before pic is at 235 8 months before surgery. After pic is at 157 8 months after surgery.

The surgery has changed my life! I have lost just shy of 100 lbs in less than a year and feel terrific. People that have not seen me in a while don't recognize me! This past winter, I could out ski anyone down the steepest of mountains...first across the finish line every time! I sleep better than I ever have and wake up feeling energized and exhilarated! Dr. Eslami and his staff were amazing and continue to show complete support throughout my wellness check-ups. I could not have imagined such fulfilling results. If you are over weight and have struggled like I did throughout the years...this is the surgery for you! You will love the new you and the only regret will be that you did not do the surgery sooner.

I had the lap band surgery in October 2007. Although the success rate wasnt as high as the bypass, I opted with the less invasive one plus I wasnt ready to give up wine forever!

It has been the best thing for me and I have had tremendous success....Im even borrowing my 5th grade daughters clothes now!

What is great about the lap band is that it is adjustable and can be removed if needed. I love the band and love Dr. Eslami!!!

I would like to thank Dr. Eslami and his staff for giving me my life back. I am a year and two months post op and have lost 140 pounds. Having gastric bypass surgery was the best decision I have ever made. I thought about having surgery about 10 years ago and was not metnally prepared and couldn't find a surgeon I connected with. Dr. Eslami is an awesome surgeon. Right from the start he made me feel comfortable and his is very knowledgeable. There are so many things I am able to do now like cross my legs, get on the floor and play with my four year old, run, lift weights and go ziplining. I continue to attend monthly support group meetings through Dr. Eslami's office and feel they are very benificial for my ongoing success. Thank you so much Dr. Eslami you have me my life back.

Hi, My name is Tina and I had the Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass, Roux-en-y in July, 2010. I have lost 120 pounds. I had back and knee pain, and had problems moving around, now I have no back or knee pain, and if I sit on the floor, I can get up without major help (and making those horrible noises) Having the surgery was the best thing I've ever done and I would do it again in a heartbeat. What a difference!

I was suffering from Type II Diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Today I have none of these problems due to bariatric surgery. Dr. Eslami carefully explained the procedure and gave me the confidence to get the bypass. He is very supportive post-surgery also so you can understand each step to recovery. I want to thank him for changing my life.

My name is Rick and I've lost 144 pounds in 7 months. I'm very happy that I chose Dr. Eslami because he and his staff are very kind and professional. Because of them, it was a very positive experience, my only regret is that I didn't have gastric bypass done sooner.

Before the surgery I had suffered a stroke at the age of 34, I had diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and back problems. I couldn't do things that most people take for granted. I was always out of breath, sweating and tired. Just walking from the car into a store was a challenge, let alone walking through the store. I am now able to exercise, walk, run, and most importantly I am able to play with my two young girls.

I have no doubt that gastric bypass was one of the best decisions that I have ever made.
