I had my gastric sleeve in July 2016. Dr. Balette and his staff prepared me ahead of time for what expect – the good parts but also the challenges I would face. My husband and I both appreciated knowing exactly what I was getting into which proved to help my nerves. Both Dr. Balette and his nurse practitioner, Megan, are always available to help with issues or concerns that I have had since surgery. From the time I went for my first consultation and through my one year anniversary visit I had this past summer, Dr. Balette and Megan have been very supportive and very informative.
My results have been amazing. I’m down by a little over 100 lbs and I feel so much better. You will obviously have major physical changes in appearance just due to the weight loss, but for me, my favorite part has been the amount of energy I have gained and being able to do the fun activities I used to enjoy. Any surgery is scary, but I researched a lot before choosing Dr. Balette and his team. We now live in Dallas but I travel back to The Woodlands for my appointments with Dr. Balette because I truly feel he and his team have my best interest in mind. Highly suggest Dr. Balette.
