Patient Stories

Alex, of Keansburg

“I feel like a new person. From the moment I attended the lecture through my follow-up appointments and support group, I have felt like part of a family. Every day I have a new ‘ah-ha!’ moment.

"My greatest one was shortly after my surgery when my son hugged me and said, ‘Daddy, this is the first time I can put my arms around you.’ That was special. I think anyone considering weight-loss surgery should attend a seminar. It really did change my life."

Brigid, of Union Beach & Arlesa, of Manchester

Brigid- LAP BAND:
“I was athletic growing up, I don’t know when I gained the weight, but when my father ended up in the ICU and I had a chance to look at my family history I knew I needed to do something or that would be me. I attended a seminar, did some research, and decided this was the best option for me.”

Arlesa - Sleeve Gastrectomy: “When I met the team at Bayshore I felt comfortable and knew with all my comorbidities that I had to do this in order to take care of myself and my husband. You have to work for it. I wanted it and I have worked for it, but I couldn’t have done it without Dr. Strom. I tell everyone I meet about him, he is the best from all the rest."
