Dr. Haeck Changed My Life - Seattle, WA
Many times a doctor will have good bedside...

Many times a doctor will have good bedside manners, but sub-par talent or they will offer impeccable skills but terrible doctor/patient relations. I am here to tell you that Dr. Haeck is the full package. He is the definition of what a doctor and surgeon should be. He is talented, caring, devoted and a life-changer. I am forever obliged to him for helping me in the journey to change my life.
Fifteen years ago, I lost 100lbs. I have kept that weight off through diet and exercise but no matter how many miles I ran or weights I lifted, when I looked in the mirror I saw the remnants of my past addiction. I had skin that had been stretched beyond repair hanging from my belly; skin I thought I could get rid of through exercise, so I tried day in and day out only to be defeated emotionally when I looked in the mirror to see it staring back at me. It hindered my confidence, my relationships, my ability and willingness to accept the great things I was capable of and my self-esteem.
Dr. Haeck met me with sincerity and openness. He put me at ease, asked me why I wanted the surgery and what my expectations were. He asked about me, he didn’t judge me. This is his life, his job and he takes it very serious but always with a gracious smile. He discussed my options; he made suggestions but never imparted on me the thought that I needed more than I did. He was confident, his credentials backed up his knowledge and his bedside manner was exactly what my scared little self needed. I walked out of the consultation knowing this was the doctor for me.
My surgery went off without a hitch. I was given great instruction on my recovery and Dr. Haeck and his team were there for me at every corner. I was shocked at how quickly I began the healing process. I was taking myself to the bathroom the same night of my surgery and 8 weeks into recovery, I was back to my full exercise regime. Throughout the entire process, Dr. Haeck was available 24-7 to help me and I trusted him with my life- that’s not something I take lightly. I believe my recovery was due to his sheer talent as a surgeon, and advanced medical recovery options.
My body looks amazing! The first time I took my garment off to shower, I wept. Dr. Haeck helped heal me. He gave me something no other person could, not even myself. No longer am I ashamed when I look in the mirror. For the first time in over 15 years, I don’t wake up miserable with myself, exhausted from another day spent at the gym for nothing, or worried about how I’m going to hide my “front butt”.
When I look in the mirror, I am finally the person I always knew I was. The outside finally matches the inside and life has changed dramatically for me because of it. I am so thankful and overwhelmed with the results and have nothing but appreciation and gratitude for having met Dr. Haeck. He is a life-changer and thanks to him, I am finally complete.
