Shelley Wade Says Hello After Surgery!
Shelley checks in with us three days post her SILS Sleeve Gastrectomy. For Shelley it was a complete and total success- no complaints! In this VLOG she discusses her overall hospital experience at Mercy Medical Center. Shelley mentions how extremely supportive and patient the entire staff at the New York Bariatric Group were during the entire experience. Her hospital stay was a “love fest” where she received great support from the staff and bonded with fellow patients that had surgery that same day.
Shelley Wade wrote “Dr. Garber, just wanted to stop by to say THANK YOU! My surgery experience with you & Mercy was wonderful. I’m at home recovering & feeling better each day. I’ll see you next week.” Click on the video to learn more about Shelley’s surgery experience!

“The staff and doctors at the New York Bariatric Group are amazing! They are always patient, helpful, and very understanding and pro-active with questions, problems, etc. After Lap Band surgery I feel fantastic. For the last 6 years I have not had to worry if my clothes would fit. I have been able to maintain my weight loss, and have so much more energy.”
"Dr. Holover has a great personality, I love him, I consider him a good friend, and I recommend him to everyone. He and his staff are amazing. I thought my recovery would be worse, but it wasn’t. It was great. After a couple of days I was back on my feet and going, with three boys you don’t have time to be down. Now, my kids have to keep up with me!"
"My results are incredible; I can go to any store and find clothes that fit, I don’t have to go to the big and tall store anymore. My family and friends say I look great, but more so are so happy about my health. Definitely go for it, it is well worth it."
"My recovery was very easy, I started moving around pretty quick because the nurses had me up and about. Dr. Angstadt has a great bedside manner, a cheerful disposition and is very knowledgeable. He was genuinely concerned for me, he answered all of my questions and put me at ease. I couldn’t be happier, I think it is the best decision I ever made."
"I was concerned about my health, my blood pressure, cholesterol, my mobility, my flexibility. A few friends told me about NYBG and I went to a seminar. I wanted to live a healthier life and live a long life. My recovery was great, after a week I was 100%. My doctor, Dr. Sekhar, has the best personality in the world."
"I had a couple of friends who had bariatric surgery done by Dr. Garber a few years back and I decided to make the appointment. My favorite thing about the surgery is not being able to eat that much, eating whatever I want but in smaller portions. My results are amazing"
