After doing research to the point that some might consider obsessive, looking at my options, the OCC always came out on top. Between videos and personal testimonials about the OCC, I decided to call. The rest is another OCC success story.
Like many of us, my weight has been an issue a good major of my life. I have been on every diet known to man and they all worked for me, for about 6 months, when inevitably the weight came back with its friends 10-20 extra pounds. In the spring of 2013, my son graduated from high school, and left Florida for college in Louisiana. While I was moving him into his dorm, I had a slight moment of clarity. It would be selfish of me not to explore every option available to prolong my life, not only for myself, but for him and others I love, at that point I was at 321 pounds and my blood work was off the charts. I came home from Louisiana in August and started doing as much research I could possibly do in reference to WLS. Every search, forum, video and personal testimony led me to Doc. Ortiz and the OCC. I made my first call to the OCC in September and on October 3, 2013 I was reassured by Doc Ortiz and Doc Martinez that everything would be ok and I had made the correct decision. Needless to say, 2 and 1/2 years and 155+ pounds later, they were right.
