A word from our patients


AnnaMarie T.

So glad that I chose WLG! Had my sleeve done on December 29, 2016. I have had no complications. I was scared before the surgery because I’ve never had major surgery before. Weight Loss Getaways is amazing!

Greg S.

I lost 119 lbs, went from 52 BMI to 35 BMI in 3.5 months, thanks to the gastric sleeve you guys did for me. That was 2016. Since then, I’m down to around 6% body fat and my BMI is hovering around 23. Thank you!!

Rosario B.

I’m 10 months post-op, down 64 pounds and wanted to say, again, a big thank you to the WLG staff…! Only 15 to go! You have changed my life in more ways than just health.
