So many have tried Dr. G and no one I know of were satisfied. Also it is very very expensive and not covered by insurance.

With Bypass or LapBand, the person still needs to have some level of self control moving forward. Eating reasonable portions, exercise, etc. must be part of any plan after surgery. You will drop weight initially, but to keep it off takes work, good luck.

By the way, check out the program at Bassett Cooperstown.

Had weightloss surgery and yes it's not easy. People have this misconception that you can do it and still it whatever you want. You have to change your lifestyle around the procedure. It's a powerful tool, but if you don't follow the post op program it's bound to fail. I've lost over 100 pounds and I'm 6 months out. I finally feel "full" when I eat, but also pay attention to what I'm putting in my body and reading labels as well as counting calories. Dr. G is the best in the State and one of the top in the country. Bottom line is there is no miracle cure. You have to work at it.

I have no intention of having any gastric bypass. I simply want to shed some weight before summer and was wondering how Dr gs was. I know weight watchers is a great program but I haven't had much luck sticking to it.

Not a healthy way to lose weight. The doctor on staff prescribes amphetamines to artificially speed up your metabolism. Very unhealthy. Particularly for someone that my have had a a substance abuse problem or is taking medication that reacts adversely to what is prescribed.

Healthy weight loss and maintaining your optimal weight is done by healthy eating habits , exercise, and rest . Portion control is key. Any program that advertises eat whatever you want and lose weight is always suspect to me, and throw into the mix amphetamines , which are addictive controlled substances will make you thin but unhealthy. Then factor in the process of withdrawing the speed and its side effects, disruptions in sleeping patterns etc. there are better ways.

Just explained it. They give you an addictive prescription drug alone with portion controlled meals. You can achieve the same results , more slowly, without the drugs with any other weight loss program.

I agree with the poster above. Don't let the fact that the program is controlled by a doctor fool you. This program is extremely costly just for starters. There are alot of pills that you have to take. People have to be careful even with the herbal or vitamin pills. These are not tested and regulated like prescription drugs. They can have bad interactions with prescription meds that people are on. I have a family member who had a mini stroke as an herbal tea she was drinking, interacted with a blood thinner she was on. This business is run by the Morris family that owns NH shopping center. Nothing against them, but they are out to make money as is anyone running a business. Of course the doctor overseeing it all, is also out to make money. There are no quick weight loss cures. If something is being advertised as such, something isn't right. Jill Morris is on one of the ads for the business and claims she is down to a size 2. I saw her getting her nails done and I'm a size 2 and weigh 95 pounds. There is no way possible she is a 2. You can't advertise falsely.

Jill is a snob and is a bitch - so phoney - she is money hungry and that is why she married Bill - what a past she has - and if she had a chance to fool around - believe me she would - not a nice woman - bad past history - and the oldest isn't even Bill's. OMG stay away. BTW who is the prescribing physician?

I think there is some confusion here. I thought this post was about Dr. G's Bariatric Center. Is there some other place pushing pills or something. My comments were referencing the Bariatric procedure.

This thread is not about Dr. Graber that performs bariatric surgery. It's about a place called Dr. G's weight loss in the New Hartford Shopping Center.

Correction: She says she's a size 4, not 2. Don't know if she is.

People won't do it that way, they want to take the "easy" way out with a magic pill. Eating right and exercising are too 'hard" for most people.
