My name is Cathee Weiss, and Dr. David Davtyan and the lap-band basically changed my life. For my entire life I have been a compulsive eater, a volume eater, unable to really be sure of when I was going to eat, how much I was going to eat; I never quite knew I was an addict with food. Dr. Davtyan and the lap-band gave me the ability to stop killing myself with food. I am so grateful to him he is a consummate surgeon. He’s a wonderful practitioner, he understands exactly how to deal with people with compulsive behavior and helped me work through things that I am committed to working through. I’m very very very grateful.
