Q&A with Richard

My Journey

I have been overweight for many years. I have tried every diet known to man and nothing really worked. I spent many years trying to get healthy as I had many health issues related to being overweight. My heaviest was 165kg back in 2020 and I was desperate. I went on Ozempic for Type 2 diabetes, and I lost 15 KGS, and for me, that was pretty awesome. I then tried again to lose more weight and was not successful at losing anymore.

In early 2023, I found out that I was going to be a Grandfather and my health was getting worse, I had counselling for emotional eating and decided that I was going to trust Patrick to do the surgery in September 2023. His staff were amazing and supportive. They put me at ease, and I felt that I had made the right choice. Patrick was the right choice.

Thank you, Patrick, Merril and Elaine, from the bottom of my healthier heart!

Why did you choose to have your surgery with NEWLS over other clinics?

I had been talking about doing a gastric sleeve but was unsure. I went and spoke to Patrick Moore at his office in Box Hill and talked through the whole process, he was so helpful and was an important part of my decision to proceed with the surgery.

What would you tell someone who is thinking about having weight loss surgery?

I have lost 53kg and I feel amazing. I do not doubt that the team there has added 20 years to my life, and I promise that if you follow their advice and do all they say, you will too.
