We love to hear and share your success
stories. Our patients are our inspiration.
I will start off by saying that I chose Dr. Moore through a seminar that I went to where we learned about each surgery and each Doctor. Dr. Moore was the only female Doctor on staff there. Her smile radiated through the seminar photos, and I said to myself “that’s the Doctor who will perform my surgery”, and she did. I absolutely love her! I had my first consult with her, and of course I was extremely anxious and nervous, but she quickly made me feel so comfortable. She is so easy and pleasant to speak with and very thorough with steps before and after the procedure to help you get to the better you that you have always wanted. She is a wonderful Doctor and I highly recommend her!
I was borderline diabetic with my weight, and my feet were swollen everyday. I came home from work and had to elevate my feet to make them stop hurting. I was ONLY 21 at the time, 21! The first time it really hit me was when I got on a Rollercoaster and was asked to get off because I was too big and it couldn’t close shut with me on it. I was embarrassed and mortified and knew my life had to change. From that day forward is when I sought Dr. Moore’s help. When I started my journey, I was almost 400 pounds. After going through my Gastric Sleeve procedure, within 8 months, I had lost 100 pounds. Within 16 months, I had lost a total of 175 pounds! It’s amazing how this surgery can change your life and your outlook for the BETTER, so much better! When I started my journey, I was around 391 pounds, and I was a size 30. After 3 years and maintaining a better life at a normal size 14 (I lost half of me!), I stay around 215-220 pounds. I am 5’11 so I wear it well!
Overall, this surgery has made me more confident, able to come out of my shy shell, and stop thinking that everyone is staring at me. It has made me just an overall better person! I met the Love of my life, married him in 2014, and we are trying for babies (something I also was told would never happen if I didn’t lose any weight). Dr. Moore has changed my life for the better and been a wonderful support system along the way, since the day I had my consult to my last office visit! She is vibrant, caring, and truly wants the best for all of her patients. This was the best decision of my life, and I will be forever grateful to Dr. Moore and her staff for letting me start my life over!
The best bond I have is that I share this surgery with my twin sister and my Dad. Combined, we have lost more than 550 pounds! Having a great support system truly helps! I am so glad I changed my life for the better! You can do it, too!

We are so happy to share this story with you. Please remember that no two patients are alike and treatment outcomes will vary accordingly. Recommended treatments are carefully considered in the context of a patient’s unique circumstances, current health status, and health goals.

I'm 5 years out from my surgery and have never looked back. My only regret was that I didn't have the surgery sooner.
