In Michael’s Words:

“For years I struggled with my weight. I would spend most of my waking hours thinking about food. If I wasn't eating, I was thinking about eating. Food consumed my life. My family has a history of heart disease, diabetes, strokes and other genetically transferred illnesses. My father had his first heart attack at 42 and was overweight the majority of his life. When he passed away, it seemed the angel of doom was looming over my shoulders and I became depressed about my weight. The more depressed I became, the more I sought comfort in food. When I finally topped the scales at 306 pounds, I sought help. I went to one of Dr. Srikanth's seminars not really knowing what to expect. After the first office visit, I knew this was what I needed. He walked me through every step to ensure my insurance would cover the costs to the maximum extent possible. The proudest day of my life was walking my daughter down the aisle just over a year after the surgery and 100 pounds lighter.

I had sleep apnea for years. I was strapped to a CPAP machine every night. This past March I had another sleep study performed and was cured of sleep apnea. Dr. Srikanth changed my life in ways I never thought imaginable. Thank you for giving me my life back!” – Michael
