Bariatric Surgeon Wayne Westmoreland, MD, was nominated by a patient who commented, "I have had weight problems all of my life. Dr. Westmoreland let me know this frustrating cycle could become a part of my past." She notes that the doctor's positive spirit has kept her on track to successfully achieving this goal. The woman noted that the doctor let her know that her weight could come back, if she allowed it to--"but he gave me the tools to keep it off." She exclaimed, thanks to Dr. Westmoreland, I no longer need high blood pressure or diabetes medications and I have more self-confidence and pride.
