My hiatal hernia repair journey
by Vicki Gordon
Amazing. Truly amazing. About 12-15 years ago, I began to experience heart burn and acid reflux symptoms. I thought it was the food I was eating. About 10 years ago I noticed that I was now experiencing horrible bloat at night. The pain and discomfort would wake me and I was miserable. And I had begun to gain weight, even though I was trying to eat the things that I was told would lessen my symptoms. I was diagnosed with a "small hiatal hernia" and put on Dexilant - a proton pump inhibitor. It seemed to work well. A few years later, my insurance stopped covering Dexilant because it was so expensive, so I was switched to Nexium. Long story short, I am now 61 years old, and none of the proton pump inhibitors were working, even though I would go to the GI doctor, who would once again diagnose me with a "small hiatal hernia" and up the dosage of the meds. My symptoms were severe bloat, reflux, horrible heartburn, I could hardly get comfortable at night and sleeping was difficult. From years of trying to "manage" my symptoms and thinking that food was the culprit, my weight had ballooned to almost 190 pounds. I tried every food fad known to man - Whole 30, Gluten-free, no carbs, no dairy, Paleo, vegan, vegetarian...nothing worked and I began to hate eating because I could no longer tolerate ANY food - of ANY kind. The bloat was so bad I looked - and felt - pregnant. Let me remind you, I am 61 years old. This was not a good look for me. And I was depressed, but determined. As a cancer survivor - I am a huge advocate for being your own health and healthcare advocate. I took matters into my own hands. I could not accept that this was going to be my life. I've always been active and enjoyed life. I had just gotten married and we have plans for traveling and doing the things we enjoy. There had to be a solution and I was going to find it. I began to research hiatal hernias, proton pump inhibitors, reflux - all of it. And then I Googled "hiatal hernia surgery"...I was

I had my initial visit with Dr Sharma today, and his Nutrionist Jody. I have never felt so at home so quickly. I am unsure what my new journey brings but I am absolutely certain they are behind me 100%. Dr Sharma is so caring and it comes across that he does this because he loves his work and wants to help.

Thank You God
by K H
I will start by saying “Thank You God” for doctors like Dr. Sharma, I am lost for words on describing how I feel. At first I was rejected by 2 doctors that said I was not a candidate for the gastric sleeve due to me not looking over weight. But yet my BMI was 36 and two comorbidities;(High Blood Pressure and Type 2 Diabetes). After researching and contacting the office New Life via online, I received a call from Dr. Sharma himself. He answered all of my questions and concerns regarding the bariatric sleeve with confidence. After meeting him in person, I felt that he and his staff was beyond professional, courteous and very knowledgeable. His off had little to no wait times, I was seen at my appointment time or waited no more than 10 minutes. I would like to thank Dr. Sharma of New Life Bariatrics, he has changed my life. 2 weeks post-surgery, I am 18lbs slimmer and taking only ¼ of the medications I was on before surgery, I have my life back and all thanks to DR. Sunil K. Sharma. May the Almighty God continue to guide you and use you for so many more people who’s out there searching for hope. May God direct more people your way so they may gain a new healthier life style after they are seen and treated by you.
Feel So Much Better
by J B
I am a patient of Dr. Sharma and have been since mid February. I followed all of his recommendations to be able to be approved for the sleeve gastrectomy. I had the procedure mid June and am now three weeks post-op. I can’t begin to explain how much better I feel in just 3 weeks. I have lost quit a bit of weight in that short span of time. I can assure you that making the decision to chose this practice will be the best decision you have ever made. Dr. Sharma and his staff are some of the nicest people I have ever met. They are professional and friendly and make you feel comfortable for the entire time you are going trough this procedure.
