We are excited to announce our August Patient of the Month Greg!
“I started battling my weight when I was in my early 30s, I tried every diet in the world Jennie Craig, weight watchers, you name it I tried it, every diet pill in the world. I started to investigate the various surgeries available and decided on the sleeve. I just happened to find Dr. McCarty on the Internet when I was doing research and was astounded that it didn’t require an overnight hospital stay like all the other gastric sleeves surgery do. I met with Dr. McCarty, he is extremely personable and has a great bedside manner and just is very matter of fact and explained everything in detail.
I went into surgery at 2 o’clock on a Tuesday and walked out at 8 o’clock Tuesday night!
Yes, no overnight hospital stays nothing! I had several friends that had the gastric sleeve done by other surgeons and all of them had to stay in the hospital a minimum of a day.
Within two weeks of the surgery, I was off all my medications the metformin for diabetes and my medication for high blood pressure.
As you can see from the pictures with the help of Dr. McCarty and Orange Theory Fitness, I have lost over 90 pounds and transformed my body.
What I have saved in prescription cost and food has more than paid for the surgery.
I’m still amazed after year with the weight loss and basically how easy it was. It’s no panacea, you still must watch what you eat. I can’t believe anybody would choose anybody besides Dr. McCarty if they’re having the gastric sleeve done, his mini sleeve works and is absolutely amazing!

Thank you Dr. McCarty!”

We are excited to announce our May Patient of the Month! Colleen is a little over a year out from the Mini Sleeve and has lost a total of 81 lbs in her journey! Colleen says, “I’m a Travel Agent and had a love hate relationship with travel… now I’m comfortable traveling and exploring and My relationship with travel is pure LOVE. I can PLAY with my grandkids!”
Her advice: “It’s been incredible for me… all positive, I’m so happy I finally gathered the courage to do this for myself. But it was a very hard decision, and I wasted lots of YEARS worrying about it. If you seriously want to take control of your weight, don’t waste time… do it. It’s not a magic serum, but for me, it made all the difference. I’ve dieted all my life and the last 20 years I have dieted without results. Surgery gave me the results I’ve worked so hard and long for.”

“Almost all my life, I have been overweight. After having three kids, my weight got even higher and nothing I did took the weight off. I yo-yo dieted for years only to lose and then gain back more than I had lost. I finally made the decision to have gastric sleeve surgery because I wanted to be around for my kids and be able to keep up with them. Having the surgery was the best decision I have ever made, and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. I never in my life imagined that in just 13 months, I would be down to 188 pounds and have lost 180 pounds. I could not be any happier about finding Dr. McCarty and his team and using this tool to take my life back. If you follow the diet and exercise plan and use this tool wisely, you can accomplish anything. I did!”
