Approximately a year and a half ago I decided it was time to make changes in my life and lifestyle. Throughout my teen years and adulthood, I had remained unhealthy and overweight. Discouraged by repeated efforts to shed the unwanted weight, I did a lot of soul-searching and decided to look into gastric surgery. As a registered nurse, I knew the importance of maintaining a ‘normal’ weight not only for ‘vanity’ reasons but for improved health and prolonged life expectancy. As I was ‘aging’ I was began to experience an increase in health related complications- all of which could be helped or eliminated by controlling my weight. I made the decision to look into the possibility of gastric surgery. On my quest to locate a surgeon that does this surgery, Dr. Cameron Askew’s name came up repeatedly. I made an appointment for an evaluation which has changed my life! From the moment I stepped into her office, I found her staff warm and welcoming! Dr. Askew met with me personally and went over my options and also ‘listened’ to my goals for myself. Decision made, the process began! Throughout the entire weight loss process Dr. Askew and her staff remained professional, proficient and polite! Today, I am pleased that I am able to maintain my weight and my health has improved! I am enjoying increased confidence along with the knowledge that for people like me, there is an answer. I highly recommend Dr. Cameron Askew and her fine staff. What have you got to lose?
