I want to thank Dr. Misra and Beverly Hills Physicians for changing my life. I was uncomfortable at my heaviest, and shopping was so hard. I wanted to be healthy and confident and feel better about myself. I met a prior patient, and had heard success stories and Dr Misra on the radio. When I met Dr. Misra I was instantly comfortable with her.

I chose the Gastric Sleeve and have not regretted it one bit! My experience has been AMAZING! The staff is always so friendly, supportive, and very professional. My pre-op consultant was on the ball about getting approvals, and all my pre-op appointments showed how caring she was. My day of surgery I weighed 262 lbs and 6 months later I’m down 77 lbs to 185 lbs. And down from a size 24 to a 16. Also from a 3/4x to a large in shirts and DRESSES. Yes I said Dresses!! I would never have been comfortable in short dresses being the weight that I was. This weight loss has boosted my confidence and self esteem, and physically, emotionally I feel like a whole new person. I know this journey will continue for the rest of my life. If i can inspire and motivate anyone to choose to be healthy and happy then I will be satisfied.

I’m looking forward to living life to the fullest, not worrying about being judged for my weight, and shopping! I want to thank Dr. Misra and the entire BHP staff for helping me change my life forever. Best choice ever.
