Success Stories


Before After


Lost 112 lbs

With Gastric Bypass

Dr. Parrish and his staff are excellent and I highly recommend them to anyone considering any type of bariatric surgery. I had gastric bypass August 28, 2014 and as of this date, July 13, 2015, I have lost 112 pounds and have gone from a size 22 to a size 8. Prior to my surgery, I was on medication for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, restless leg syndrome, reflux, neuropathy in both my feet and legs and used a CPAP for sleep apnea. My back ached constantly and I was tired all the time. Within a couple of months, I was off of most of my medications. My blood pressure is normal, cholesterol and sugar are all normal. While preparing for surgery, I met with his dietician, and followed her instructions to the letter. I started walking everyday and then built myself up to weights. I feel like Dr. Parrish has given me my life back. His staff is very courteous and knowledgeable and if I have a question, they are just a phone call away. I was very happy to have this done in Alexandria, LA rather than having to go to another city and feel that Dr. Parrish and his staff offered excellent pre and post-operative care and I have referred people to him every day. I could not have gotten better care anywhere. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them for bariatric surgery.
