When I was 360 lbs I always felt tired, but didn’t have time to go to the gym because of school. I had a lot of back pain and started looking into how to lose weight. I looked into Dr. Davtyan and saw how he interacted with his patients, saw his Yelp reviews and how caring and understanding he is so I decided to come in and speak to him.
I felt like a sleeve was too invasive, so I did research on the Lap-Band. It was simple, an outpatient procedure so I got it done. It didn’t hurt much and I’ve had friends tell me that gastric bypass is an awful ordeal. The recovery was like a day or two where I felt some kind of pain, but after that I felt fine. The liquid diet was surprisingly filling for the first few weeks. I followed the rules to a T.
So far, I’ve lost 80 lbs and I got it a year ago. I’d like to lose another 30 lbs at least.
Everyone is great here, nice and caring. They call me from time to time just to check in on me make sure everything is ok. The next day after surgery they called to check which was nice, because I’ve had other surgeries in the past where they don’t even check on you.
Dr. Davtyan is great. He’s very encouraging and wants me to lose more weight and stay on track. It feels like a team effort, he and his staff are all supporting me.
It’s like a family here. Dr. Davtyan treats you like one of his kids. He doesn’t sugar coat anything. He’s very straightforward. If you aren’t doing what you should be he will let you know. I really appreciate that about the doctor.
