I attended a weight loss seminar at Atlanta General and Bariatric Surgery Center. After listening to Dr. Johnson and several others speak, I knew this is what I had to do to help my health. Dr. Hart did my surgery, and I thank God for him every day. He gave me back my life!
I weighed 433 at my initial visit. At my recent one year post-op appointment, I weighed 253 and have lost 180 lbs! I can’t thank the fine folks at Atlanta General and Bariatric Surgery Center enough for helping me with this journey and taking care of me when I needed it most!
My journey begin at 302 pounds. I had hit my all time high and my all time low. I reached my goal of 100 lbs lost 7 days before my 50th Birthday. Now at 202 lbs. I feel fantastic! I thank Dr. Johnson for believing in me and in what he does; the only goal he set for me was to get healthy. Thank you Dr. Johnson and staff for everything!
After attending an educational seminar at Atlanta General and Bariatric Surgery Center, I made the decision to have gastric sleeve surgery. Dr. Johnson and the staff at Atlanta General and Bariatric Surgery Center were very helpful throughout the entire process, including helping me with insurance approval. Though having surgery was a very personal decision that took much soul searching, my only regret is that I did not have it sooner. I am pretty sure it saved my life. My health problems have vanished, and I feel great. The day before surgery, I weighed 244 pounds. One year later I weigh 164 pounds.
I can’t believe it has been just a year and I have lost almost 130 pounds! I went from 275 to 145 pounds. The only regret that I have now is that I did not take control of my life and do this sooner. Thank you to Atlanta General and Bariatric Surgery Center for giving me a new lease on life!
The thing that impressed me the most about Dr. Johnson is that he never looked at me with condemning eyes. I only experienced genuine concern. Dr. Johnson is more than my surgeon; he is my friend. And the ladies at the office are all my sister girls. “I AM A JOHNSON BAND-IT”
The day I went in for surgery I was 305 lbs. I was miserable. I am over 5 years out and at my lowest weight ever. I weigh 172 and actually have some size 6 jeans and shorts. I am so glad I had a gastric bypass. It has changed my life!
Prior to LAP BAND surgery my weight fluctuated but not from fad dieting. I would start a work out regimen, get bored, and then stop only to start again. At my heaviest, I was 224 pounds on a 5′ frame. Now, I’m proud to say that I’m a BARIATHLETE. Most of my days begin with a 5:00 AM run and end with an evening run or some other type of work out such as tennis, swimming, or CrossFit!
Dr. Hart is a top-notch, first-rate, five-star surgeon. I couldn’t have been in any better hands. He is very quiet and reserved but very knowledgeable and super dedicated as well as a talented surgeon. I am down 125 pounds and have reached my weight goal loss–actually I exceeded it. Off all of medication and at a healthy BMI. I feel like a different person, and I have my life back!
I was diagnosed with Gastric Paranthesis. I really was in bad health – 100+ pounds over weight and no end in site. I felt overwhelmed and the weight felt daunting. After going to the “look/see” meeting to be educated about bariatric surgery, I was sold. Dr. Johnson was brilliant in the explanation of where I was in my life and my options. This surgery was the best decision I ever made for myself. I’m still all me…every ounce the same person, same personality. I don’t hide my photos from the past; they are me and who I was for 40 years.
