“I was going to die at an early age…”

Mandy Clark described herself as “broken” and “sad” before her weight loss journey with Dr. Cernero. When Mandy started gaining weight and having health problems as a result, her doctor told her that if she did not lose weight, she would die at an early age. After hearing several positive referrals and seeing the success of a friend who underwent bariatric surgery, Mandy decided to come to Cernero Surgery & Aesthetics. Since her operation, Mandy has lost 135 pounds and now wears a size 4. Recently, Mandy said she wore a bikini for the first time in her life—something that she is very proud of.

“You couldn’t ask for a better doctor or staff…”

Nicolas Posada came to Dr. Cernero after being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and fatty liver disease—a combination he described as “a death sentence.” After seeing a commercial for Cernero Surgery & Aesthetics, Nicolas said he wanted to have his own success story like the ones he saw on TV. Dr. Cernero suggested that Nicolas undergo gastric sleeve surgery, and he has lost over 100 pounds since. Nicolas said he was “very happy” with Dr. Cernero and his staff, as they were there to kindly answer all his questions and concerns leading up to the procedure. Nicolas has been off of his diabetes and high blood pressure medication for seven months and is looking forward to participating in more physical activities with his family, like running with his son.
