's experience with Evolve Bariatrics

Michael lost 161 pounds in 1 year with the Gastric Sleeve Procedure.

Michael’s advice to people considering weight loss surgery:
“Do it! It will change your life more than you can ever imagine.”

How was your experience with your Patient Care Manager?
Casey was wonderful. She was able to answer any questions that I had before meeting the doctor. She also followed up several times before and after my surgery. The level of service was above and beyond what I could have expected.

How was your experience with your doctor?
Dr. Dirk and his staff were excellent! He spent time talking to me about all of my options during the first visit. I had visited two other doctors before going to him. They both rushed me through the initial visit and answered very few questions. Dr. Dirk made me feel very comfortable while educating me on the procedure.
The surgery itself went very well with very little pain. I was up that afternoon walking and only taking Tylenol. Dr. Dirk even personally called me the next day to check on me. He is also reachable after hours because the office number goes straight to his cell. Dr. Dirk has saved my life and given me my life back.

Before Surgery:
I was unable to walk to the car or up a flight of stairs without being out of breath. I wanted to sleep all the time and had no energy. I was miserable and unable to enjoy life with my family.

After Surgery:
My life has totally changed since the surgery. I have energy and have become very active and enjoy outside activities with family. My legs and knees no longer hurt all the time. I am able to sleep through the night without sleeping pills.
I am able to go to events that require a lot of walking. I can climb a flight of stairs and not feel like I am going to pass out. I am able to buy clothes that actually fit and are comfortable.
