At 42 i was on 4 diabetes medications, a statin for cholesterol, maxed out on lipids medications, blood pressure meds... chronic back pain, sleep apnea, my heart rate was in 120 range... i was TIRED! Under his guidance and skilled hands, along with the help of his kind and talented office staff- i made a decision to have the surgery... no question that i had was too stupid.. always treated with respect. 2 months later - i am down 47lb but more importantly - i am off ALL MEDICATIONS.. my labs are PERFECT! I am full of energy! I work out 3-4 times per week (something i never thought i would ever do again)... i feel great! I sleep well! My back pain is gone! I can truthfully say - Dr. Abkin SAVED MY LIFE and gave my kids their father back! Thank you! Forever grateful .
