The Day My Life Changed! - Orlando, FL

I write this review from my heart. I write this...

I write this review from my heart. I write this review about a Doctor. A Doctor who I found thru someone else's bravery - someone who shared their story on IG and it showed up on my screen when I typed in weight loss. I read her story, saw her pictures, sat there in amazement at her results. Immediately thinking that she probably lives on the other side of the country. New to IG, I left the account and than realized I didn't click follow. So new to IG - I had to try and figure out how to find her again. Well a few minutes later, I managed to get back to her account. I am not very savvy at social media. I do not have Facebook, so this was big. Haha I started reading again and realized she was local. I froze. Sat there and thought, is this happening? Could this be a sign for me to investigate? So I did? Went on Realself, and requested an appointment. I figured I would get a response with a standard - thank you for contacting us - bla bla bla
I am here to tell you within minutes, I received a personal email from Dr. Oppenheimer, not his nurse, or assistant, or administrator. It was from him. An email that was sent with sincerity, concern, professionalism and it was so amazing. My appointment was booked right there and I had to wait a month or so - my availability. He actually followed up as the appointment came closer. I thought this is too good to be true. Nowadays you can't even get a copy of your bloodwork without signing form after form and of course the wait time. And here I actually received an email from the very surgeon who was happy to answer my questions and made me feel like I mattered. I mattered. I went to the appointment and knew immediately that my life was about to change. Brought my husband to the next appointment, however, we agreed not to discuss my initial meeting with Dr. Oppenheimer. He wanted to form his own opinion. My husband and I have a signal between us. Saves a lot of time and helps when we can't really converse - if he or I reach over for the other's hand - were good. Car deals, house purchases, etc. works every time. We arrived at the appointment, went in, sat down and we listened. I already knew he was the doctor for me. I sat there waiting for my husbands hand to move. I wanted to take his hand - but needed it to be his move. Well it happened - and I almost jumped out of my chair. I knew that this doctor was going to change my life. Well, he did. I am 5 days post opp. I have cried on and off for the last 4 days. Not from pain, not from recovery but from complete and utter joy. Everything has been manageable. It has been everything he said it would be. My husband has also cried with me because he has held my hand throughout this journey and my life is forever changed, thanks to Dr. Oppenheimer. Went for my first follow up and Christina and Deedee were there. Dr. Oppenheimer said "I am so proud of you". They too were so excited for me when I opened my binder for the first peek. He was proud of me??? He is the one who performed the surgery, and he was proud of me? Wow, that says it all. It's not about him, and that is a quality that comes from within, it comes from the heart and is not fake. I am here to say, he is a doctor who will make the difference in your life. He has changed my life and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for me after my 100 lb weight loss. I actually cry when I look in the mirror from happiness. When I used to cry in pain. I thank you Dr. Oppenheimer and your staff. Thank you for making me feel like I matter.
