Ratings & Reviews
How was your appointment with Dr. Gopal?
When i met Dr. Gopal, to say i was in bad shape was an understatement. I weight nearly 250lbs and was 5ft2. I had thyroid issues, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and im sure i was on my way to being pre diabetic. I was tired ALL THE TIME, out of breath constantly from doing just simple tasks like wiping myself after using the bathroom, bending over, getting dressed or after any minor exertion. My clothes didn’t fit, i battled with constant fungal infections, and other skin issues like boils. No clothes fit and my self esteem was down in the dumps. One day i went to have labs done for my endocrinologist, they took my blood pressure and it was 180/127. My resting heart rate was over 95bpm. At that moment i decided i needed to make a change or i was going to die. I sought out numerous surgeons and researched WLS. Everyone i spoke to didnt even look me in the eye. No one took me seriously. I was treated like yet another disgusting fat person that was a number in a stack. Until Dr G
