Nicole: A Success Story

December 23, 2019

About two and a half years after my second pregnancy, I found myself at the highest weight I’ve ever been. My health was slowly deteriorating; I was trying to manage diabetes and high blood pressure. After trying numerous diets – to no avail – and being limited to the fun I could have on family vacations, I decided to have bariatric surgery.

I had gastric sleeve surgery done by Dr. Adam Goldstein, and I’ve lost more than 90 pounds. Now, about a year and a half later, I no longer deal with diabetes or blood pressure complications! I can participate in activities with my children without feeling tired and worn out.

Having this surgery was one of the best decisions I have ever made, not only for myself, but for my children. There aren’t enough words to express how thankful I am to Dr. Goldstein and his team for giving me the tools needed to change my life.
