Patricia, a grandmother to seven grandchildren likes to spend the summer in New York and travels to Marion County with her husband during the winter months. She enjoys swimming, water aerobics, and water Zumba. Because of a recent gastric bypass surgery, Patricia enjoys participating in activities like these even more. She says these outdoor activities "keep me feeling good."

Patricia had gotten heavier over the years and considered bariatric surgery when a family member had a successful bariatric procedure done.

Patricia says the bariatrics team at Ocala Health is very professional, very caring, and very accepting. "The team at Ocala Health is fantastic. I couldn't have asked for better care. I am very impressed with Ocala Health." In addition to her water sport activities, Patricia was able to walk for three hours around the botanical gardens during a recent trip to Canada. "Three years ago, I would not have been able to do that. I feel great, physically, and have more self-confidence."
