My name is Joe Grande and I was originally 345 pounds at my heaviest weight when I decided I needed to get the Lap Band. I had diabetes, high blood pressure, and gout in my ankles. I was told on a consistent basis by my primary Doctor that I needed to lose weight so I could be healthy. Dr Carson Liu helped me get healthy after he preformed the lap band on me. Just 3 weeks after my procedure I was told by my primary Doctor that I no longer had to take my diabetes or my high blood pressure medication, because I lost 25 pounds. I lost 100 pounds in my first year. My primary Doctor has finally told me I am a healthy man who should live a long life! Unfortunately, I lost both of my parents to diabetes complications due to them both being overweight. I did something about my weight and Dr Liu saved my life. I will forever be grateful to Dr Liu and felt safe and comfortable with him as my surgeon.
I wish I was given a dollar every time someone said “You have such a pretty face, BUT if you would just lose all that weight…” I wasn’t the kind of person that struggled with weight other than the normal 10-15lbs, until my late 20’s. Working as a Hollywood make-up artist around the clock, stressful sets left no time for the gym or a good healthy lifestyle. The weight packed on and I finally decided to do something about it. Although I was sold on the Lap-Band, I wasn’t sold on the surgeons I was meeting, until I met Dr. Liu. Dr. Liu and his staff are the best. They are so helpful and willing to answer any question and every question, and trust me I asked them all in person, by e-mail, and by phone. They were and still are super generous with their time. Dr. Liu has such an amazing gift and talent. My surgery was easy and the down time was brief. He has a great bedside manner, is always accessible, and is genuinely concerned. His wit and easygoing demeanor puts you at ease. I wish I could see him for every health ailment. He is always doing the latest treatments and I trust in his experience and judgment. Two years later and 110lbs. less, Dr. Liu has helped me be the “Nicole Bolin” I was always meant to be.
