A couple of years ago I suffered from very serious medical complicatons related to my diabetes. With the help and what seemed like daily care from Dr Stolzberg, I was able to get the surgery that I needed that literally saved my life. I had severe gastroparesis and was facing a life without being able to eat or drink except through a tube into my intestines. He participated in the long ordeal of getting authorization from my insurance company so that I could have gastric bypass surgery which at the time was considered a pretty radical step. For the first time in many years my weight is under control and so is my diabetes. While I consider to struggle with other health issues I can honestly say that without Dr Stolzberg, I am not sure that I would be alive today. He has demonstrated time and again by the care that he has given to myself, my mother and my father what an amazing doctor and certainly a special man he truly is.
