18 months ago I meet the man of my dreams!! No it was not my husband, I meet him 49 years ago. 18 months ago, I meet Dr. Russell Gornichec…that meeting changed my life. I have struggle with weight gain and loss for many years, but as I have aged, it has become harder and harder to get the weight off. I attended a Weight Loss Seminar and decided to give it a shot after a lot of soul searching. I called and made an appointment to meet Dr. “G”. I could feel the warmth and sincerity in his conversation that day. He discouraged me about making a rash decision and encouraged me to think about the big picture. Told me it would not be a cure all unless I was truly willing to take the life challenge. Told me there would be highs and lows that I would have to be willing to accept. I left with a warm hand shake that day, and took my time debating on what was good for me and my husband. I needed to do this for me and with the support and encouragement of my husband, I made another appointment to meet with Dr. G. and he told me it was not an overnight fix. I completed all of the requirements and had my surgery on September 27, 2011. Since then I have been very successful with my weight loss by following the Dr. G Bible!! It is the only way to go. Yes, I have had several setbacks all due to unforeseen complication with ulcers. No matter the time of day or night, I was able to reach Dr. G for needed advice. After several hospitalization trips, and close coverage by Dr. G I am happy to say I am as healthy as I will ever be. I truly believe that it is the dedication and love that Dr. G has for his patients, which makes him the well-respected surgeon that he is today. He will to continue to help people believe in themselves. He truly lives for his patients. I would not be where I am today without his encouragement and belief. I will continue to sing his praises, as he was put in my life for a reason. He truly is one of God’s healers!! Thanks Dr. “G” you are a blessed, respected and dedicated surgeon
Dr Gornichec did gastric bypass on me in Nov 2012. He did find some other issues that needed to be taken care of when he did my surgery and he not only did my bypass but fixed my other issues as well. I got excellent care, continue to get excellent care and I would do it all over again. Dr Gornichec is very skilled and thorough! I highly recommend him!!
Dr. Gornichec and staff are amazing. I recommend them to everyone who asks how I succeeded in my weight loss. I was expecting a long drawn out process, but overall, took only 6months to get in for the Gastric Sleeve. I also liked how thorough his testing is prior to my surgical experience, from seeing a dietician, sleep study, lab work, etc, I knew I would receive top of the line care.
