"I am grateful to the care I received at UCLA Medical Center." —Jennifer

Like many women I have been held back by obesity for most of my adult life… I struggled through the difficulty of losing a small amount of weight, then to only regain it quickly plus more. I became depressed. I was so very discouraged, actually the word does not even begin to express the dark feelings I had. A client of mine, after listening to me share my frustration, was kind enough to say to me, “Jen, let me show you a picture of me from 3 years ago.” The woman in front of me was stunning, fit and beautifully put together. A woman that you would never know had struggled with her weight. She showed me a picture of an obese version of herself. I was shocked. I needed to know what she had done! She shared with me her experience of gastric sleeve surgery and that it can even be covered by insurance. I am so grateful to her for sharing this possibility with me.

I am also grateful to Dr. Chen as he NEVER once made me feel bad about my obesity. He was always 100% encouraging and positive. I am grateful to the care I received at UCLA Medical Center. As a nurse, I recognize the remarkableness of the kind, comfort based care I received from every staff member!
