Marcia C's Story

By: Dr. J. Timothy Katzen

“My journey to the “new me” started on February 2, 2005 with gastric bypass surgery that resulted in a weight loss of 102 lbs. I have been overweight since I was 12 so I never really knew what it was like to go shopping with girlfriends and pick out bathing suits together. The difference in my life since this important life saving decision has been dramatic to say the least. 2006 brought with it my opening of Arizona Medical Weight Loss Clinic in Lake Havasu City, Arizona with Dr. Brian N. Sabowitz. What a difference a year makes! Going from battling the chronic disease of obesity alone and frustrated to offering solutions and empathy to others struggling with the same disease. It’s been one dream come true after another.In April of 2006 I met Dr. Katzen at an Obesity Help conference in Tucson, Arizona. I remember there were so many people that wanted to meet Dr. Katzen that he actually changed his flight home to be with the people that needed him.

Dr. Katzen completed my reconstructive surgery on December 18, 2006. After undergoing my circumferential body lift (and another 13lbs weight loss from excess skin) I finally feel like the woman I have always dreamed of being. The old saying of nothing taste as good as thin feels really is true. Dr. Katzen and his staff were caring, thoughtful and very thorough with their information and patience.

There are no words to express my gratitude to Dr. Katzen and his group of professionals. Thank you doesn’t seem to be enough. Dr. Katzen, you have my sincere appreciation. You’re the best!”
