TESTIMONIALS - WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING
"the quality of life is so much more than I could have hoped for"
I'm 60 years old and a 20 year military veteran with a variety of psychological and physical conditions. Prior to surgery my BMI was 40, I weighed 115 kilograms and suffered significantly with GORD (reflux disease), hypertension, high cholesterol and constant chronic pain in my back and knees. After... a lot of tests, the specialist recommended I see Dr Lara Freeman. That meeting and the subsequent treatment and surgery changed my life. Dr Freeman is extremely knowledgeable, caring, personable and professional. I love that she is also a straight talker, which from my perspective I needed badly. Dr Freeman provided me with a range of options and after discussing at length I elected for a gastric bypass as I felt that was the best option in my circumstances. I was amazed at the results. Yes, I lost weight. For me though the benefits I'd hoped for were even more than that. I no longer required medication for hypertension, my cholesterol returned to normal levels and the chronic pain I'd lived with for close to 30 years had gone. I had my life back and the quality of that life is so much more than I could have hoped for. Read More

"My family and friends couldn’t believe I looked so good after just having major surgery"
I have recently undergone a gastric sleeve performed by Dr Lara Freeman and her team. I can highly recommend the whole team due to their care, professionalism and excellent skills. Being nervous about having the procedure is an understatement but any questions I had were answered and because I... felt comfortable with Dr Freeman who is very approachable I was confident to proceed. The anaesthetist phoned me prior to the procedure and explained everything that would happen on the day of the surgery and she was very reassuring and understanding about the concerns I had which made me so much more confident. Following the surgery I was put on a pain management regime to help minimise any expected side effects. I cannot believe how well my recovery was and I am happy to say I was basically pain and nausea free and I was discharged from hospital earlier than expected. My family and friends couldn’t believe I looked so good after just having major surgery. My quick recovery is a reflection on just what a gentle, caring and skilled surgeon Dr Lara Freeman is.
