“The most satisfying part of my job is seeing the drastic change in people’s lives. Witnessing how their true personalities come out. From being too scared to leave their home, unable to drive a car or fit on an aeroplane to laughing, smiling and having their first kiss or first date after 30 years of never dating! That’s what makes me show up every day for my patients.”

A team that cares…
Meet patient Nola Sargeant. She struggled with the merry go round of dieting, losing weight and putting it back on again.
Nola Sargeant
“I just knew it was the correct thing to do and after meeting Patrick, I didn’t even bother looking elsewhere as he just made me feel so comfortable throughout all my procedures. The entire team here definitely care about myself as a patient and also as a person.”
Meet patient Suzette. After hearing her friends joke about going on The Biggest Loser TV show she realised it was time for a serious change.
Nola Sargeant
“The impact from having the surgery has been enormous – I’ve lost half my body weight. I’ve gone from being afraid of sitting on chairs for the fear of them collapsing underneath me to now walking into any clothing store and buying whatever I want. And 11 years later the team are always there for me – they are always welcoming and always helpful, nothing is ever a problem!”
