My journey with Dr. Cribbins and office stated January of 2022. My surgery date was May 2, 2022.. I'm down about 88 pounds currently. This has been life changing. The tools provided, especially the book Dr. Cribbins created has been awesome. I call it the Bible for bariatric weight loss surgery. Don't listen to everyone else. Do what's best for you!!!! I love and appreciate all that has been involved in this journey including my gyn Dr. Branning for encouraging to prolong my life. Nothing but success has been conquered in a short amount of time. I look forward to longevity success. I know I can do it!!! Dr. Cribbins and staff are supportive in many ways as needed. It's hard to admit you need help, or at least for me; however, it's ok to get the help you need. Once you are ready and determined, you will achieve great things with a great support system.

I could not ask for a better experience both pre and post opp. Dr. Cribbins  set great expectations and I had zero pain and no pain meds post surgery after my gastric sleeve procedure. The staff was a joy to deal with and always upbeat and positive. I would highly recommend as Dr. Cribbins took exceptional care of me.
